Chickpea Flour Banana Muffins

Recipe characteristics

  • Super easy to make
  • Only one bowl needed
  • They are soft, tender, and loaded with flavor!
  • Perfect for breakfast or a snack!
  • Dietary requirements: plant-based (dairy-free, egg-free), gluten-free, and soy-free

Notes on ingredients

You can find a complete list of ingredients with exact amounts and instructions in the recipe card below.
  • Chickpea flour: Chickpea flour is also known as garbanzo flour. It is one of the most nutrient-packed gluten-free flours available. It is high in protein (1 cup contains more than 20 g of protein), fiber, and micronutrients and lower in carbs and calories than traditional wheat flour. Being naturally gluten-free, it is great for people with celiac disease, gluten intolerance, or wheat allergy.
  • Oat flour: Oat flour is a nutritious, unrefined flour that lends great texture to baked goods.
  • Almond flour: Almond flour is made from blanched (peeled) almonds and it is not the same as almond meal. Compared to almond meal, almond flour has a finer texture and lighter color. It adds texture and a subtle nutty flavor. 
  • Coconut sugar: It can be subbed with brown sugar or regular white sugar.
  • Gingerbread Spice mix: If you need a substitute, you can use Pumpkin Pie Spice mix or cinnamon powder instead.
  • Coconut cream: It provides a rich taste and more flavor overall.
  • Mashed bananas: You’ll need 2 small ripe bananas (approx. 160 g). It’s important to mash bananas well before adding it to the batter. You can use a fork to mash it.
  • Granny Smith apple: Granny Smith apple is my go-to apple for any baked or cooked recipe. They have that perfect sweet-tart flavor and hold up well under heat.
