Excuse my all caps but seriously these muffins are my personal top 5 favorite recipe ever on the blog. They are on point taste wise and they actually came out perfect on the first try. Something that rarely ever happens considering I tried making a galette today and wasted one too many ingredients I am sick even thinking about.

These muffins though. They are a Healthy Bakery Style Banana Spice Muffin that won’t give you no muffin top that’s fo SHO. They are made with all clean ingredients, and they are gluten and dairy-free.

I have been on a muffin kick lately over here. I love making my Healthy Paleo Chocolate Zucchini Bread Muffins (vegan)Paleo Cinnamon Roll Muffins and those Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Muffins too!

What ingredients you need:


Coconut oil

Non-dairy milk



Vanilla extract

Gluten-free oat flour

Coconut sugar

Baking powder




  • These muffins are SUPER fresh so I recommend eating within 2-3 days of baking otherwise pop in fridge or freezer so they stay good longer
  • Gluten-free flour is best in this recipe but oat may work. Grain-free flours will be a bit off for this
  • Flax egg can likely be subbed for egg

  1. Ooh, turmeric milk in muffins is a good idea! I haven’t seen Rebbl at stores yet near me, but when I do you can bet I’ll probably get some and try it after seeing you use it in so many recipes!

  2. These are AMAZING! This might sound crazy but I 1/9th the recipe, because I am known to try healthy recipes that don’t taste good. But don’t fear, Rachel has created yet another DELIC recipe!!!

    I added cloves, extra cinnamon, and ginger to mine because I didn’t have tumeric. :)))

    Happy baking!!

  3. Hi!! This recipe looks delish!! But I was wondering if there is anything I could substitute for applesauce?

  4. These are seriously so good. I think these are my favorite banana muffins I’ve ever made. Thanks! 🙂

  5. Made these last night and they were on point! My husband,’s exact words “I think these are the best muffins you have made yet”!

    Thanks Rachel! Loving your website, recipes, and posts!!

  6. Made these today, and they’re delicious! Thanks for a great recipe, Rachel. As a note to others – be sure to blend together your wet ingredients relatively quickly after adding the coconut oil. I got sidetracked and waited a bit before mixing, only to find that the coconut oil had hardened in the bowl. I broke it up as much as I could, but as a result some of the oil seeped out of the bottom of the cupcake liners while baking. They still taste great, just likely not quite as moist as they would have been. So anyway, fantastic recipe, and lesson learned on my part! I’m sure I’ll nail it next time 🙂

  7. loved this recipe! i subbed the gf flour for 1 cup oat, 1/4 cup buckwheat, and 3/4 cup brown rice. also reduced the coconut sugar to 2 tbsp. they turned out great!!! thanks rachel for another awesome recipe 🙂

  8. These are AMAZING! I followed it exactly (except I used oat flour) and they turned out perfectly. My boyfriend ate three fresh out of the oven (and was literally shocked when I told him the clean ingredients.) One of my favorite recipes on this blog, thanks Rachel!

  9. These came out AMAZING! My husband ate half the tray about 3 minutes after they came out of the oven (did not even know they were gluten/dairy free) ???

  10. Yum, these were delish! 3/3 of my kiddos loved them and all the ingredients are pantry staples, will definitely make again!

  11. These are so good!!! Didn’t have milk so I subbed with greek yogurt (thinned out with a splash of water) and it worked well.

  12. They were sooooo good! So easy to make and so delicious. I didn’t had any applesauce so I grated an apple. I will definitely make them again.

  13. These were amazingggg! Made them yesterday and my mom already wants me to make them for her to bring into work! Any time suggestions if I make them mini?

  14. I used pumpkin in place of apple sauce and added 1/4 tsp pumpkin spice and they were divine! Thank you for all your incredible recipes!

  15. I think this is my favorite muffin recipe yet! I decided to make these cranberry orange as my ad-ins. I zested one orange and subbed 1/4c of fresh orange juice for the milk. Added some cranberries and walnuts and they came out amazing!
