Almond Flour Banana Muffins are grain free and sweetened with honey. The muffins are filled with walnuts and topped with a cinnamon sugar mixture!
These moist muffins are super easy to make, gluten free and I am pretty sure they are paleo as well. I added some chopped walnuts into the mix, but you could use pecans instead. My favorite part about these muffins is the cinnamon sugar mixture on top. I combined coconut sugar and ground cinnamon. The cinnamon sugar gets baked on top of the muffins until golden... YUM!

Frequently Asked Questions
You cannot swap out the flours in this recipe. Both almond and coconut flour are not easy to substitute with oat flour or wheat flour. I recommend sticking to the recipe as is.
Spoon the flour into the measuring cup. Then, level off the top of the cup with a knife. Do not place the measuring cup into the bag and scoop. You could end up with more flour than needed.
If you don't have a ripe enough banana, simply place the banana on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for about 20 minutes at 350 degrees F until the skin turns black and the inside is mushy.
