Flourless Chunky Monkey Muffins - gluten-free, dairy-free, paleo, with nut-free option

When I made these flourless muffins for the first time, my kids said it was like our favorite smoothie (chunky monkey) in a muffin. Hence – chunky monkey muffins!

They can be #Paleo if you use nut butter besides peanut butter…though that’s my kids favorite and works for our family. I told my kiddo I wanted to take a picture of him with them…and he promptly brought them close to his nose because “They smell so good!”

    Another easy, delicious recipe that our whole family loves. Thank you!! We make these on repeat and they’re great out of the freezer too.

    Thank you!!! Quick and yummy. I’m on a crazy restrictive diet right now. I don’t feel like I’m missing out on anything with these.

    • I’m so happy these gave you a delicious easy option! Thank you!

    I’ve never had a “flour-less” muffin taste so delicious (especially if you are a banana/peanut butter lovers)! Everyone in my home loves these and the pan is basically gone in one day! Not to mention ingredients most people have on hand, they can be whipped up in an instant without too much planning, win win!

    I really wasn’t sure about these having no flour like substance. BUT…Everyone in my family gobbled them up tonight and with 3 kids under 9 and a husband who doesn’t like bananas or “heathy” muffins that is an accomplishment! Now I just should have doubled so I could freeze some!

    • I’m so happy these won them over and were a family hit!

    • These are my favorite muffins hands down. I always double the recipe and make them at least once a month!

      • I love that you make this one on the regular, thank you!

    I love these for a snack or quick breakfast grab. My toddler loves these!!

  7. These are so good and they freeze and reheat wonderfully!! Made a batch for my kiddos(2&4) a few weeks ago while I was doing a whole 30 and froze 2 to try once I finished. Thawed one on the counter and popped in the microwave and it was perfect. The texture of these is by far the best of any paleo baked good I’ve ever made.

    • I love that these were so enjoyed by your family, even out of the freezer. Thank you!

    I don’t like bananas, nor do I like peanut butter, but I love these muffins! Great way to have a treat, but also get lots of healthy fats and nutrients in :). Very soft and moist. My favorite way to make them is with half almond butter and half peanut butter. They freeze really well too! Yet another recipe from Autumn that is a winner!

    These muffins are always so yummy. And yes I agree; it’s like the smoothie in a muffin. 😀 They freeze so well too!

    These muffins were a huge hit with my kids. We made them with peanut butter for a delicious PB+chocolate combo. I would love to see the recipe modified to use a whole (standard sized) jar of peanut butter. I felt like the recipe used up most of a single jar, and I would have just preferred to dump the whole jar of natural PB in the blender and use it all up in one recipe.

    These are great! I’ll definitely need to make a double batch next time.

    • I’m so happy to hear you enjoyed them – thank you! We definitely always double batch these in our house, they freeze so great : )

        This is a win for my kids. Not only can they make them on their own in the blender, but they actually want to eat them. I agree with other comments – just double the batch. Freeze them up! Your future self will thank you!

        Side note- my daughter hates eating anything banana or peanut butter flavored, but she eats these! Go figure?!

        • Banana is my LEAST favorite fruits and I agree, I enjoy them in these. And I LOVE that your kids can make them and enjoy them, so great!

            Delicious!!! You can’t even tell they don’t have flour. I also did the PB/Almond butter mix and these babies are hitting the spot.

        • These are so good! I’ve made them with peanut butter and with almond butter and they’ve been delicious every time! My kids (ages 7&8) love them too!! Super easy to make and yummy, that’s a win for me!
