As you can see, there are lots of ingredients, but all of them are incredibly healthy. The bananas were included not only because we love banana muffins, but also because they are a good alternative to using lots of fats in the form of batter or oil. Almond and pumpkin seeds are some of the best foods you can eat, coconut oil is a healthy fat, and honey serves to sweeten this muffin recipe with no sugar.

How to Make Muffins with No Flour and No Sugar - Step 1

Place you almond and pumpkin seeds on a tray covered with a piece of parchment paper, then in the oven at 350 degrees F. This way, the seeds will dry a bit and it will be easier to transform them into a flour for our no flour muffins. Roast for 5-8 minutes, stirring once. Then let them cool down and blend them into a flour with the help of a blender.

Be careful not to blend them too much, they shouldn´t become oily: once you reach the texture of almond flour you are done. Why not buy almond flour? Because it is cheaper to home make it!


Add baking powder, cinnamon, ginger and salt to your (no flour) flour.

Now, the wet ingredients. Beat the eggs until the become foamy. Smash the 2 ripe bananas and mix them with your coconut oil and honey. This is a super sweet mixture with no sugar, can you believe it? You can use it to sweeten other no sugar recipes as well.
