Banana and Walnut Muffins

Banana and Walnut Muffins

Muffins are another of my family’s favourite, and these Banana and Walnut Muffins are nutrient dense and easy to make, and packed with satiating, healthy ingredients.


(makes 12)

  • 2 cups almond meal
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 6 Medjool dates – pitted
  • 4 medium sized very ripe bananas 
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar 
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup Rice malt syrup
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts (I like my walnuts activated – check out how to activate them here!)


Pre heat oven 170°C / 325°F / Gas Mark 3 and put muffin papers into muffin pans.


Mix dry ingredients in a bowl – almond meal, coconut flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt & bicarb mix through to combine and make sure there are no lumps.

In a blender/food processor all the wet ingredients – dates, bananas, eggs, apple cider vinegar, coconut oil and rice malt syrup and blend well until completely combined. Add the wet mixture to the dry mixture and mix thoroughly until thick and fluffy. Add the walnuts and mix through.

Spoon mixture into each muffin paper 3/4 full and bake for 20-25 mins. (poke with a skewer and if it comes out clean they are ready)

  • Hey Bev, these sound great, Rice malt syrup is hard to find here at times. Can I substitute maple syrup ? I also love the recipe size, so i can share with my boys!!
    Thank you

    • Hi Bailey
      Maple syrup is slightly thinner in texture I am sure it will work or you can use honey! Let me know how you like them 😊

      Be Well
