I’m always trying to find ways to indulge in what I love but keep it lower in fat and calories. So I created this incredibly delicious recipe for oil-free banana muffins that are so dense and sweet you’ll eat the whole batch! No seriously, you will…


  • 3 very ripe Bananas (mashed)
  • 1/2 cup Vanilla Almond Milk (or any non-dairy milk + 1 tsp. vanilla extract)
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • 2 cups Flour (can omit for oat flour)
  • 1 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1/2 tsp Cinnamon (optional, but do it!)
  • 1/4 tsp Salt


Step 1

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F

Step 2

In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking soda, salt & cinnamon. In a medium bowl, mash up your 3 super ripe bananas with a fork, then whisk in the almond milk & vanilla extract if using.

Step 3

Fold the wet with the dry and mix till full incorporated. You can use a mixer, but I just used a fork and it works perfectly. Since we’re not using oil in this recipe you’ll need to line your cupcake/muffin pans with liners.

Step 4

Using a tablespoon scoop, measure out two rounded scoops of batter per cup/liner. Bake for 22-26 minutes or until golden brown and cooked in the middle.

Step 5

Top with a dollop of peanut butter and some banana slices. Serve warm with a glass of almond milk, Enjoy!

Sounds tasty and simple, and it's getting me hungry. As to the sugar comment above, I wonder if adding applesauce would help lessen the sugar load. Thanks.

I wish they told us what high levels are. I was around 60 and have diabetes. I'm sure this is why.
