If you’re looking for a recipe for Clean Eating Banana Muffins you’ve found it!
Like most kids, my kids love all things sweet. It can be challenging selecting foods for them, because there is SO MUCH processed foods in grocery stores. I have a rule that we don’t purchase anything with artificial flavors, colors, or high fructose corn syrup. This rules out a large majority of the foods in the snack isle.
My daughter still wants to try the packaged snacks, so I always remind her that we can make anything she sees at the store. 🙂
One of her favorite homemade treats is clean eating banana muffins. They satisfy her sweet tooth, while satisfying my desire to feed her real food.

Here is how I make muffins for my family. They’re sweetened with bananas and maple syrup. They make a great breakfast, snack, or side for a lunchbox.
I prefer to make mini muffins, as they seem to be easily manageable for my 2-year-old. I’ve included instructions on baking time for both mini and regular muffins.

Could almond or coconut flour be subbed for the all purpose?
You should be able to substitute almond flour for all purpose flour in a 1 to 1 ratio.
The coconut flour is a bit trickier. The ratio of coconut flour to all purpose flour is 1 to 4 (1/4 cup of coconut flour to 1 cup all purpose flour, for instance), and you may need to increase the liquids and baking time. Here is some more info on that: https://nourishedkitchen.com/baking-with-coconut-flour/
