❤️ Flourless Muffins
Healthy and Flourless Muffins
These muffins are completely flourless and use ground flaxseed instead. Flaxseeds are chock full of nutrients, dietary fiber, and omega 3 vitamins. These muffins are filling and will keep you satisfied for hours. They make a perfect breakfast on the go or a snack to tide you over that won't cause a carb slump.
These muffins are flourless and made with ground flaxseed. Gluten free baking powder instead of regular baking powder, and banana extract instead of fresh banana.
Moist & Delicious
Unless you forget your muffins are in the oven and you overcook them :-), these are not dry muffins and I love that!
If you like the idea of these muffins, you will also love my Blueberry Coconut Muffins recipe. They are made with coconut flour and are a HUGE favorite of mine.
Low Carb and Keto Muffins
As you can probably tell I get super excited of things that taste good but are healthy. After what seems like a lifetime of dieting and eating really boring food I always felt like I'm going without. Not only do I find these tasty but they are guiltless and healthy.
By the way, these muffins only have 2 grams of net carbs! Ground flaxseed is used instead of flour and to reduce carbs even further, banana extract is used instead of chopped or mashed banana. Perfect!

Ingredients and Tools
Here are the ingredients and tools you will need to make these strawberry banana flourless muffins:
- 2 cups ground flaxseed
- 3/4 cup sugar alternative that is a 1:1 sugar ratio (I use granulated monk fruit sweetener or powdered monk fruit sweetener)
- 1 tbsp cinnamon
- 1 tbsp gluten free baking powder
- 1/2 tsp kosher salt
- 5 large eggs
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/3 cup unsalted butter or coconut oil, melted but not hot
- 3 tsp banana extract
- 3/4 cup strawberries, hulled and chopped
- Blender, mixer, or whisk
- Measuring cups
- Measuring spoons
- Large bowls
- muffin tins
- muffin cup liners
Here's how to make these tasty strawberry banana flaxseed muffins:
Preheat oven to 350° F. In a mixing bowl add flaxseed, sweetener, cinnamon, baking powder, and salt. Stir to combine. (Image 1 & 2)
Using a blender add eggs, water, banana extract, and butter/coconut oil. Blend for 20 seconds. (Image 3 & 4)
Pour liquid mixture into dry ingredients and stir until combined. Let sit for 3 to 4 minutes.
Add strawberries and stir. (Image 5 & 6)
Fill lined muffin cups with approximately 1/4 cup of batter in each. Bake for 20 to 24 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. (Image 7 & 8)
- The muffin batter will be runny at first. Let the flaxseed mixture sit at least 3 to 5 minutes and it will thicken.
- If you don't have a blender to mix the liquid ingredients, use a hand mixer or a whisk.
- Use muffin liners to prevent sticking.
- Measure the muffin batter with a 1/4 cup measuring cup. Most muffin cups hold about a heaping 1/4 cup full of batter.
- Test the muffins for doneness by using a toothpick inserted in the middle. If the toothpick comes out clean, the muffins are done.
Can I make these muffins with coconut oil?
Absolutely! In fact depending upon which coconut oil you use you may have a strawberry, banana, coconut flavored muffin. Yum! Nothing wrong with that. 🙂
Can I use real banana in these muffins?
Absolutely! Use 1/4 cup of strawberries and 1/4 cup of banana instead of 1/2 cup strawberries. You can reduce the banana extract from 3 tsp to 2 tsp, or you can use 2 tsp of vanilla in place of the banana extract.
Can I substitute another berry for the strawberries?
Yes. You can substitute other berries for the strawberries for sure! The best berries to substitute are blueberries, blackberries, and raspberries.
Can I use granulated monk fruit sweetener instead of powdered monk fruit sweetener?
Yes, for sure! You can use granulated monk fruit sweetener instead of powdered monk fruit sweetener if you like. I tested both and both came out great.
Can I substitute a different sweetener that monk fruit?
Yes. You can actually use any sugar substitute with a 1:1 sugar ratio! For those not following a sugar-free diet, you can most certainly use regular sugar if you like!
Are flaxseeds gluten free?
Yes! Flaxseeds are naturally gluten free.
Are flaxseeds good for you?
Yes! flaxseeds are very good for you. They are loaded with nutrients, plenty of dietary fiber, and omega 3 oils.
How Can I Use Flaxseeds?
Flaxseeds can be used in muffins and breads in ground form usually, but often the seeds are added whole too. Adding flaxseeds to smoothies is a great way to sneak them in. My husband even sprinkles ground flaxseed into some applesauce every night!
