I made these 3 times this weekend for the family because the first batch went so quickly. yum! WE will be making these on repeat for awhile. also – I should add i’m not crazy about muffins but i cannot stop eating these lol.
    Thank you for such a delicious and healthy recipe!

    These look so delicious! I am wondering if there is anyway to reduce the amount of bananas and adding banana extract to give flavor while lowering the carb count? Not sure if it would work. Any advice?

    Love THIS RECIPE! I’VE BEEN HUNTING FOR A GOOD KETO FRIENDLY AND GLUTEN FREE BANANA MUFFIN RECIPE AND THIS IS IT! MY KIDS ARE ALLERGIC TO TREE NUTS (NOT PEANUTS) SO I CAN NEVER USE RECIPES WITH ALMOND FLOUR OR ANY OTHER TREE NUT PRODUCT WHICH IS OFTEN FEATURED IN THESE TYPES OF RECIPES. I LOVE THE FACT THAT YOU’VE INCLUDED ALTERNATIVE SUBSTITUTIONS FOR MANY OF THE INGREDIENTS, SO VERSATILE! MY 7 YEAR-OLD MADE THIS AS WRITTEN, USING LILY’S DARK CHOCOLATE BAKING CHIPS (STEVIA SWEETENED) AND THEY TURNED OUT WONDERFULLY! SHE FILLED THE CUPS TO THE TOP WITH BATTER AND THEY PUFFED UP SLIGHTLY, BUT DID NOT OVER FLOW. THE LEVEL OF SWEETNESS ISN’T QUITE ENOUGH FOR MY SWEET-TOOTHED SON, BUT EVERYONE ELSE LIKED THEM. I MIGHT TRY ADDING A BIT OF STEVIA NEXT TIME TO SEE IF IT CAN WIN MY SON OVER. ANYWAY, THANK YOU FOR A GREAT RECIPE!

    Allison

    They are amazing! I used 4 bananas and no chocolate chips, yet they turned out just sweet enough. Definitely making them again in the future 🙂

    Julie

    These are THE BEST low carb muffins I’ve ever eaten. I used peanut butter instead of almond butter and added 1/3 c stevia at the end to sweeten them just a bit. I also used sugar free chocolate chips instead of regular. They were moist and yummy and I had a hard time stopping at just one. It totally satisfied my banana bread craving.

      Layla

      Yum, thanks for all the great tips, Julie!
