These Apple Banana Muffins are the perfect mash up of two fruits! Full of natural sweetness, a hint of spice, and easily made gluten free!

I mean, banana muffins with chocolate chips are good and all but have you tried APPLES?

I know, it seems like kind of a strange thing to have two very different fruits in a muffin but just trust me on this okay?

If you were a fan of the applesauce muffins or my paleo banana nut muffins then you are going to love this little mash-up!

Why you will LOVE This Recipe

If you are not a stranger to the blog, you’ll know that I LOVE muffins. They’re great for breakfast or a healthy snack any time of day and there’s so many ways to mix things up! I love baking up a pan of blackberry muffins or some healthy oat bran muffins so naturally, I keep developing muffin recipes because you can NEVER have enough! Today I have for you a banana apple muffin recipe and let me tell you, bananas and apples paired together have never tasted better! These muffins are perfectly tender, so flavorful, and are made with a natural sweetener, making them a healthy choice. You and your crew are going to love them!

Ingredients Needed

These apple and banana muffins are so tender, flavorful and absolutely delicious, AND they are made with better-for-you ingredients to cut down on refined sugar. Here are the ingredients you’ll need to round up before getting started:

All Purpose of GF 1:1 FlourCinnamonBaking SodaSaltRipe bananaAvocado OilEggHoney

How to make Apple Banana Muffins


Fire up the oven so that it can preheat while you make the batter. Spray a muffin pan generously with oil. 


Whisk together the flour, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt in a medium sized bowl. In a separate, larger bowl, whisk together the remaining ingredients, other than the chopped apples. Stir the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until JUST combined. Fold in the apples.


Spoon the batter into the muffin cavities. Pop the pan in the oven and bake for a little while, then reduce the heat and continue baking until a toothpick comes out clean. 


Leave the muffins in the pan until they have cooled COMPLETELY. Serve them up and DEVOUR!

Muffins Storage

You’ve done it- wasn’t that SO easy?! Now it’s time to gobble up your apple banana muffins, but if you happen to have any left over, you can store them for easy breakfasts and snacks in the days and weeks to come! For fridge storage, place the muffins into an airtight container and they will last in the fridge for up to 1 week. For the freezer, you can either individually wrap the muffins in plastic wrap or place them in a freezer bag and they will last for up to 3 months!

Healthy Banana Apple Muffins FAQ

Why are my Muffins flat?The secret to domed muffins is starting to bake them at 400 degrees Fahrenheit, then reducing the heat a bit to finish the bake time. Don’t skip this step! Also, you will want to make sure you don’t overmix the batter, as it would bring too much air into it, causing the muffins to fall flat.

Can I use Gluten Free Flour?Absolutely! Just make sure that you use a 1:1 gluten free flour so that the measurements are the same!

What Kind of Apples Should I use?This recipe would probably turn out great with any kind of apples. I used Fuji apples and they turned out fantastic!
