Soft muffins, with that classic SunButter taste sweetened with bananas and honey. A great breakfast or after-school snack, these portable muffins are gluten, dairy, egg, soy, peanut and tree nut free as well as vegan and top eight free!
For the record, so that I’m always transparent, SunButter did send me free product and I am one of their official bloggers. That said, we’d been buying it for quite a while before that as it’s the closest peanut butter substitute we’ve found.
I once heard that all good recipes originate from your childhood somewhere. One breakfast, as well as snack, I remember is toast with peanut butter, bananas and honey on it. It was a stacked toast with all of that goodness on top of it, and it was filling.
When I saw these muffins, I knew I had to recreate them to be allergy-friendly for my son, so he too could have a similar childhood memory–as they have all of those flavors, without the mess–because let’s face it, the peanut butter always ended up on my hands. These are much less sticky, unless you drip additional honey on them, but I just couldn’t help myself!
As you can tell, my boys were quite excited to try them out! I already shared this pic on my Instagram, because it was just TOO good to not share right away. My youngest is always lingering when I’m baking or shooting, just waiting for a chance to inhale it.
I also used these as neighbor gifts, to give to our new neighbors and another neighbor whose flowers had gotten stepped on. WHOOPS. Muffins cover a multitude of sins, right?? Life with little boys… (In his honor, it wasn’t my son, it was his friend he had over.)
I love making breakfast items in the summer because we’re on a more relaxed schedule, and it’s OK if breakfast doesn’t happen until 10am since there’s no school! While these muffins would be great anytime, I do love a good muffin for breakfast, especially if it’s a late breakfast after sleeping in, because I am NOT a morning person. #thestruggleisreal
Let these muffins make memories for you too! Enjoy!
- 2 cups gluten free flour (I like Cybele Pascal's recipe)
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 3 medium bananas
- 1/3 cup honey
- 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
- 1 Ener-G egg (1 and 1/2 tsp Ener-G mixed with 2 Tablespoons of rice milk)
- 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup Creamy SunButter
- 1/3 cup rice milk
- Preheat the oven to 350 F. Grease a muffin tin generously. I found it made 16 muffins, so either plan on using it twice, or do two muffin tin pans.
- Mix together, in a stand mixer with the paddle attachment, all of the liquids: honey, coconut oil, Ener-G egg, vanilla, SunButter and rice milk. Next, add in the bananas and mix until you reach the desired texture. (I prefer my bananas to be completely mashed, but some like little pieces.)
- With the stand mixer on low, slowly add in the baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and finally flour. Only mix until it's just incorporated. It's OK if the batter is lumpy.
- Scoop into the muffin tins, about 3/4 the way full.
- Bake for 15-18 minutes, or until the muffins have a cracked top and bounce back when touched.
- Enjoy plain, with your favorite dairy-free butter, or honey. You can't lose!
