How To Make Almond Flour Banana Muffins
Muffins are pretty much always a hit because they taste great, and they don’t take a lot of work to make. That keeps me happy, and all of our taste buds really happy! Let’s get started on making some keto banana muffins!
First Step: Warm the oven to 350 degrees and line your muffin tin with cupcake liners.
Second Step: Blend together the cream cheese, butter, and sweetener in a medium-sized bowl. Use a hand mixer and blend until it’s smooth and creamy. Slowly add the eggs, flours, baking powder, extracts, and cinnamon. Mix until everything has been combined well. Fold in the chocolate chips and put the batter into a muffin tin.
Third Step: Bake the almond flour banana muffins for 25-30 minutes or until the centers are firm and the edges have set up and are a deep golden brown.
Fourth Step: Let the keto banana muffins cool completely, then take them out of the pan.
How Do I Make Uniform Sized Muffins?
The easiest way to make the muffins the same size is by using a large cookie scoop to put the batter into the muffin tins. If you don’t have access to a large cookie scoop, you can also use a measuring cup. Just make sure to fill the measuring cup with the same amount of batter for each muffin.
Can I Add Nuts To The Almond Flour Banana Muffins?
Sure! You can absolutely add nuts to the banana muffins if you want to. Pecans, walnuts, and almonds are delicious and wonderful options. They give your muffins a great crunch. Walnuts are very popular in banana muffins. Just add ¼ – ½ cup of walnuts to the batter when you put in the chocolate chips. You don’t want to add too many.
These almond flour muffins are pretty versatile too. You can even add fruit to the batter if you want. A few blueberries are a great complement to the banana flavoring.
Can I Make Mini Keto Banana Muffins?
Yes, absolutely, you can make mini muffins with this almond flour muffins recipe. It’s so easy and doesn’t really change a lot for you. Simply spray a mini muffin tin or line it with 24 liners. Use a small cookie scoop to fill the muffin tin with batter. Because they are so small, it won’t take long for them to bake. Bake the muffins for 15-20 minutes and remove them from the oven when they are done.
Why Aren’t My Muffins Moist?
If you have baked the muffins and find that they aren’t moist, there are a few possible causes. First, you should check your oven temperature to make sure that it is correct. If you bake the muffins in too high of heat or for too long, they won’t be as moist.
Secondly, if you overmix the batter, it can lead to a denser and even a dry banana muffin. Just mix the batter until it’s incorporated, and that is enough.
Lastly, it’s important that you properly measure all the ingredients. If you add to much flour or not enough liquid ingredients, it can significantly affect the outcome of the muffins.
