Banana Date Muffins (Gluten & Dairy Free)

I was struck with another bought of creativity in the kitchen this week, plus a request for easy pre- and post-workout snacks from Kyle, so I went with it!

With some dates in the cupboard and a few aging bananas, I whipped up a batch of these deliciously sweet goods.

To double-check the taste, I even had my Dutch in-laws try them, and we all know the Dutch LOVE their baked goods.

Enjoy for a quick breakfast, snack, or even dessert!

Banana Date Muffins
*Makes 12

3 bananas
12 dates, pitted
3 eggs
1 tbsp vanilla
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 c almond flour
1/3 c coconut flour
3/4 c chopped walnuts
1/2 c almond milk
3/4 c coconut oil
1 tsp stevia
Optional: honey to taste

Set the oven to 350 degrees. Mash the bananas and mix all liquid ingredients in a large bowl. Mix in solid ingredients, adding walnuts near the end. Portion into muffin tins and bake for 25-35ish minutes until golden brown.

  1. Tried to make the lemon balls, but too much liquid. Looking at the receipe it does look a lot….those measurements right?

    • Hi! Hmm sorry about that! I don’t always perfectly measure things, so it’s possible the measurements are off. Try leaving on the coconut oil, or adding more coconut flour, which soaks up liquid QUICKLY (so add slowly!).

  3. These look absolutely scrumptious. Any suggestions for making them egg-free? (My son has an egg allergy) Would applesauce work?

    • Thanks!! Try substituting 1 tbsp chia seeds or ground flaxseeds to 3 tbsp water for each egg… I haven’t tried it myself, but I know that is what many egg-free recipes call for! Otherwise, try applesauce!
