The BEST part about this banana coffee cake is the streusel topping. Any recipe with streusel or crumble, i’m a sucker for it! My pumpkin streusel muffins have the same streusel topping and might be a close favorite to these!

How to make Blender banana coffee cake muffins

Ingredients:

  • Bananas
  • Almond flour: There is no 1:1 substitute for almond flour in this recipe, besides cashew flour.
  • Oat flour: If you cannot have oats, you can substitute a 1:1 gluten free flour. See notes in recipe card!
  • Maple syrup: You can also use honey or agave. Any sticky sweetener will work.
  • Coconut sugar: Golden monk fruit is a great sugar free option. You can also use brown sugar if you’re not looking for these to be refined sugar free!
  • Rolled Oats
  • Vanilla extract, cinnamon, sea salt
  • Chopped nuts: I like pecans or walnuts, but any nut works!
  • Powdered monk fruit sweetener: I like Lakanto as it tastes just like powdered sugar. If you’re not refined sugar free, you can use regular powdered sugar!

Instructions

  • Make the muffins: Add all the ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth.
  • Make the crumble: Mix together all of the crumble ingredients in a small bowl.
  • Assemble the muffins: Divide the batter amongst a greased or lined cupcake pan. Then divide the crumble on top, slightly pressing it into the top of the batter.

faq’s

  • How to make vegan banana muffins: I haven’t tested it, but you can try substituting flax eggs for eggs. Mix together 1 tablespoon ground flax seed with 2 1/2 tablespoons of water. Let it sit for 5-10 minutes, then use as an egg. This makes one egg!
  • How to make moist banana muffins: Be sure not to over-bake! Check the muffins at the lesser amount of time, as all ovens can vary!
  • Banana bread with two bananas: This banana bread only requires two bananas but you want to make sure they are super brown and spotty as this will create the sweetest bread!
  • Can you make the streusel topping without oats? Yes! You can try using more nuts in place of the oats.

  • In a small bowl, combine all of the crumble ingredients.
  • Grease or line a muffin tin with liners. Divide the batter amongst the tin, making 10 muffins. Then divide the crumble amongst the tops of each, slightly pressing it down gently so it sticks.
  • Bake for 22-25 minutes, until they are firm to touch and golden.

Notes

Store these in an air-tight container on the counter for 3 days, in the fridge for up to 10 days, and in the freezer for a few weeks!
*I highly recommend using the brand One Degree Organics Sprouted Oats. These are certified gluten free and go through rigorous testing. However, you can sub 1/2 cup 1:1 gluten free flour. They come out pretty close in texture!

    These are delicious and so quick and easy to make! I left out the icing and they were still very good. I prefer them to regular banana muffins! Great healthy snack to have around the house.
