Grain Free No Added Sugar Banana Muffins with Walnut Pecan Topping

These Grain Free No Added Sugar Banana Muffins with Walnut Pecan Topping are the perfect way to use up those super ripe (almost black) bananas that seem to appear on your kitchen counter at the end of every week. Given the list of very blood sugar-friendly ingredients used to make them, they are perfect for anyone with diabetes in your life who enjoys a good banana muffin, but not the blood sugar spike that usually happens afterwards.

Gluten Free Banana Nut Blondies

Yield: 16 bars

1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened

1/2 cup coconut sugar

2 eggs

3 ripe medium bananas

1 tsp almond extract

1 tsp vanilla extract

2 tsp baking powder

1 1/2 cups gluten free flour blend of choice (make sure it has some sort of binder in the mix, ex: xanthan gum)

1/2 cup sliced almonds

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees (F). In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine the butter and coconut sugar. Mix until combined. While the mixer is running, add in the eggs (one at a time), bananas (broken into 2-3 inch chunks), and extracts. Let everything mix for 60-90 seconds until fully combined.

Stop the mixer and add in the gluten free flour and baking powder. Mix just until combined. Finish mixing by hand with a rubber spatula until no more loose flour remains. Mix in the sliced almonds.

Spread the batter into an 8x8 pan lined with parchment paper. Bake for 25-30 minutes until a knife inserted in the middle comes out clean.
