Banana Walnut Muffins


  • 4 Medium Bananas
  • 15g of Ground Flaxseed + 75ml of Water
  • 60ml of Melted Coconut Oil
  • 60ml of Maple Syrup
  • 1 Teaspoon of Vanilla Essence
  • 300g of Ground Almonds
  • 50g of Gluten Free Oats
  • 1 Teaspoon of Baking Powder
  • 2 Teaspoons of Cinnamon

These are gorgeous as part of a weekend breakfast spread or for grabbing on the go. They’re light and fluffy with lovely warmth from the cinnamon and a little crunch from the walnuts.  Prepare for your kitchen to smell like heaven!

Preheat the oven to 180’C. Whisk together the flax and water and set it aside. Whisk it again after a minute or two and then set it aside until it’s the thickness of a raw egg.

Add the bananas, flax, vanilla, maple syrup and melted coconut oil to your blender and blitz until smooth. You can do this by hand if you prefer, but make sure the banana is mashed very well.

In a separate bowl, combine the ground almonds, gluten free oats, baking powder and cinnamon and mix it all together.

While mixing, gradually add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. Then chop the walnuts and fold them into the mixture.

Line your muffin tin with muffin cases or baking paper and spoon the mixture into each one, filling them all the way to the top.

Bake at 180’C for 25-30 minutes, until golden brown and a knife inserted into the middle comes out clean.

    Hi Indy,

    Would these freeze well? Thanks

    You don’t mention the walnuts in the instructions. Do you roughly chop? I assume it doesn’t matter when you add them? The image appears to have banana slices on top of the muffins. Are they in addition to the 4 bananas listed? Or from them?

    • Indy Power says:

      The walnuts are chopped and added in at the end. The bananas on top I decorated with are optional and in addition to the four mentioned x

    Can this same mixture be poured into a loaf tin to make a full cake rather than muffins?
    If so, would be measurements be roughly the same?
