How to make the best sugar-free banana muffins, naturally sweetened with honey and cinnamon and a great source of dietary fibre and protein. Add some fresh blueberries, nuts or chocolate chips to make them your own.

Healthy Banana Muffins Recipe

With my daughter being home for the past 668 days (not like I’m counting), her daily snack consumption seems to have also increased by 668%.

While we’ve had conversations about not eating just because you’re bored and having a healthy snack before we reach for the sugary snacks, I’m not about to set food rules or limits so I’ve been making extra efforts to have delicious, healthy options available to her.

These easy, healthy banana muffins are definitely one of her favorites with their soft, fluffy texture and sweet cinnamon-honey-banana flavor. I love that not only are these muffins sugar-free, the addition of flax meal adds a big boost of fiber and protein to these muffins – each muffin contains 2.2g of dietary fibre and 2.8g of protein.

Sometimes for a little twist, I stir in some blueberries or even a handful of mini chocolate chips – you could also stir in dried fruit, nuts or a bit of cocoa powder.

And just like all muffin recipes, these are super easy to make with the kids.

Is there a replacement for the flax meal? I personally have never tried any flax meal substitutes but pysillium husk, ground chia seeds or ground hemp seeds should work if you can’t find flax meal.

Can you freeze these banana muffins? Yes, place the baked muffins in a single layer in a freezer bag or your favorite freezer containers. (This set of freezer containers is a crazy bargain.) They can be frozen for up to three months.

How to Make Sugar-free Banana Muffins

Line two muffin trays with muffin liners. Set aside.

Preheat your oven to 350ºF.

Peel and mash your bananas until all fibers appear to be broken down.

Stir in your egg, vanilla, honey, and milk, and set aside.

In a separate bowl, mix all of the dry ingredients together.

Slowly add the dry ingredients, 1 cup at a time, to the wet ingredients, being careful to fully incorporate so that you don’t get chunks of uncooked banana mixture in your final banana bread.

Bake 20-25 minutes until the tops of the muffins are domed and an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
