    These were incredible. Yum. The recipe made a full dozen using my silicone pan. I used about 1/2 cup of a stevia/sugar blend instead of the honey.

    Hi Trina,
    Can’t wait to make these! Just wondering if you could substitue almond flour for coconut flour? What do you think?

    • Cherie, the texture will be much different and coconut flour requires more liquid with any recipe. I’m sure it can be adapted with coconut flour, but I have not made them that way yet, so I could not advise how to change the recipe.

  3. I’m rather new to paleo, but have been gluten-free for many years. This was the third muffin recipe I’ve tried and hands-down, the best. Great texture and lightness. Not too sweet. My young kids loved them too. Thank you!

    • Gina, yay! If you have read any of my reviews, you know I love recipes where the kids love them! And you’re a great mom for serving up treats to your children you can feel good about. Thank you so much for your comment!

    Just made these…soooo good! I’m new to Paleo and this was my first ever baked good. I got 8 out of the mix. Quick and easy plus delish…can’t beat that! Thanks.

        • Hi Susan…mini versions of these will probably take 12-15 minutes to bake. Start checking them after about 12 minutes – insert a toothpick and see if it comes out clean. Hope you like these, they’re one of my favorites! Let me know how the minis turn out!

    Just made these as mini muffins and they are soooo delicious. My bananas were not ripe yet and I only used 1 tbs of honey and they still came out sweet. Thanks so much for the recipe Trina, it’s a winner!

    • That’s funny! I made these this weekend as well! It’s a go to favorite. I’m so glad you enjoyed them. I think I’ll make them as mini muffins sometime. Great idea for a quick snack! :)
