Carrot Banana Muffins

Paleo Carrot Banana Muffins are purely fruit sweetened and super easy to make. This yummy muffin is made with an almond flour base, sweetened with dates and bananas, and studded with carrots and walnuts. People tell me these are the best paleo muffins they’ve ever made!

Similar to a sunshine muffin or a morning glory muffin, this healthy muffin recipe is wonderful at breakfast with a cup of my liver cleansing, alkalizing, Dandelion Coffee. I’ve been drinking this caffeine-free coffee for decades and absolutely love it.

The Philadelphia Inquirer included The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook in an article called “Gluten-Free But Still Tasty.” So many people tell me this is the first grain-free cookbook they ever owned. I wrote it in 2008 and we could not put the words “grain-free” or “paleo” in the title since those terms were so foreign!

This healthy Carrot Banana Muffin recipe is based on one by Heidi at 101 Cookbooks. I took her Fruit Sweetened Carrot Cake recipe and made it gluten-free and grain-free while lowering the amount of fruit sweetener in it.

Here are some of my low-carb almond flour muffin recipes for you!

  1. Made these for the first time today. They are amazing!! I love Elana’s recipes. I have never been disappointed.

  2. I just made these today because my younger child wanted carrot cake, but I wanted a healthier version. I made this with your cream cheese recipe and this is, by far, the tastiest muffin ever! I am taking a stab at your Keto salt & pepper crackers tomorrow… Can’t wait!
