Quick and Easy Banana Muffins (Gluten and Grain-Free Options)

A healthy snack with only 3 ingredients!
If you add protein powder it can be a good breakfast option too, for days when you’re on the go.
Heads up: without gluten these muffins won’t rise, but are still healthy and delicious.


2 ½ cups brown rice flour (1 cup can be hemp or rice protein powder, or for a grain-free option use almond flour)
2 tsp baking powder (optional)
1 ½ cups (about 2 large or 4 small) mashed ripe bananas

  1. Preheat oven at 350oF
  2. Mash bananas in a mixing bowl, then add the dry ingredients to make a nice dough
  3. Line a 12-muffin tray with muffin cups or lightly grease the tray with coconut oil
  4. Place about 1/3 cup of dough in each muffin cup
  5. Bake for 45 minutes (or until muffin surfaces are firm and dry)
  6. Allow to cool before removing from tray
