These Vegan Raspberry Banana Muffins are gluten free, Paleo and free of all common allergens. Better yet, they are only sweetened with fruit! These muffins are great for snacking and toddler friendly.
Muffins, muffins, muffins.... Oh how I love you!
I don't know if you've noticed, but I kinda have a thing for Paleo muffins.
Perhaps it's because I don't ever buy bread or baked goods, so these fill that void. Or, maybe it's because they're such an easy snack. Plus, you can literally make any flavor muffin. Is it even possible to get bored of them if you're mixing up the flavors and ingredients?
Whatever the case, these vegan banana and raspberry muffins are a must! These perfect Paleo snacks are:
- gluten free
- dairy free
- nut free
- egg free
- don't contain any added sugar
- baby and toddler friendly
That's quite a list of what's not in them! So, what exactly ARE these muffins made of?
Ingredients in Paleo and Vegan Raspberry Banana Muffins
These muffins contain grain free flour, seed butter, banana, raspberries, cinnamon and a few simple baking staples. Here's what you need:
- ripe bananas
- sunflower seed butter
- vanilla extract
- cassava flour
- baking powder
- fresh raspberries
A few ingredient substitutions can be made. For instance, any nut or seed butter may be used in place of the sunflower seed butter. Why did I choose sunflower seed butter? Well, because it is nut free, therefore allergy friendly. It does have a very distinct flavor though. So, for a more subtle flavor I'd go with almond butter or peanut butter.
For best results, I recommend using cassava flour. I haven't tested any other baking flours. However, any gluten free baking mix (like THIS one) should give you similar results.
Even though these muffins are "raspberry" muffins, fresh blueberries or blackberries would work as well.
Lastly, the cinnamon and vanilla extract are optional, but add to the flavor. These ingredients may be left out.

Mine came out too soft, I did 22 minutes though.
Hi! Did you let them cool in the baking pan for 10 minutes? They should continue to set.
I followed the recipe exactly but it was very disappointing as the mixture was far too wet and didn’t cook or rise properly. It didn’t seem to have enough flour - I even cooked them for an extra 5 minutes. The quantities even before I started seemed wrong,
I'm sorry the recipe didn't turn out for you. Did you measure the cassava flour by weight?
These raspberry muffins are a huge hit with my family! Hope you all love them too!
