Apple Banana Muffins 21 Day Fix Approved

I love carbs. Especially bread carbs. I’ve been healthy eating for years now and I still wouldn’t trust myself locked in a room of warm bread even today. Thankfully, I can satisfy those carb cravings with healthy delicious foods like these 21 day fix banana apple muffins from Fixate. In fact, we should thank Autumn herself for these easy, mouth-watering muffins!

There have been a few different plans or health programs I have tried over the years and many of them gave me valuable insight into learning to eat for fuel rather than cravings. When I learned to feed my body what it needs for fuel, my cravings changed and my body changed both inside and out. The meal plan used in the 21 Day Fix and 80 Day Obsession was one of the biggest resources for me.

If you aren’t familiar with the meal plan, the plan uses containers to help measure the correct amount of food. It doesn’t take long before you get accustomed to the appropriate amount for serving sizes and you can skip the actual measurement with the containers, which of course, saves some time. I learned a lot about serving sizes and food ratios by using Autumn’s plan.

Apple Banana Muffins

They are gluten-free, dairy-free, refined sugar-free and meet the requirements for the 21 Day Fix and newer 80 Day Obsession meal plans.

Truth is, whether you follow Autumn’s 21 day meal plan or not, these flourless banana apple muffins are delicious and a great addition for anyone looking for a healthier lifestyle without depriving themselves of great tasting food!

It took me way too long to discover healthy snack recipes to satisfy my sweet, carb-loving tooth. When I started working so hard to lose weight, I didn’t even know about healthy recipes like these so I just did without the comfort foods we all enjoy so much. Now, I never have to push through cravings.

easy healthy banana muffins ready to eat

The apple banana muffins are quick and easy. I made these while dinner was simmering on the stove. With only 7 simple ingredients (I typically have all of these ingredients on hand), this could easily be a weekly recipe to use, especially when your bananas are getting too ripe.

The Fixate cooking show is on Beachbody demand featuring Autumn Calabrese and her brother, Bobby Calabrese. If you follow the 21 Day Fix approved meals and recipes, this would be a great show to watch.

Living a healthy lifestyle and even losing weight, doesn’t mean restricting foods as much as it means to find healthier ways to enjoy your favorite foods. Many years ago I didn’t understand that. My weight loss efforts were about eating salads and going without food for a time, then go back to eating the high fat, high sugar content foods I did before. We know how that ends.

Now, I enjoy food as much as I did then, so much more because the foods I eat don’t make me feel lousy with a sugar crash.

Apple Banana Muffins

Combine mashed banana and melted butter until thoroughly mixed. I always use real grass-fed butter now. Don’t be afraid of the fat, it’s not the healthy fats that we need to be concerned with.

Next, add in the 2 eggs and mix until thoroughly combined.

Next, whisk in the almond flour. Almond flour is pretty new to me, and I have found a great place to purchase it is Costco. Costco is actually where I buy the majority of my groceries.

After the almond flour is mixed in well, fold in the diced apple.

Next, scoop into a lightly greased muffin pan or use liners if you choose. Fill the muffins almost full. In these pictures, I filled to about 3/4 full but could have made each muffin a little larger by almost filling the cups.

Muffins are ready in about 16-18 min or until lightly browned.

I love having one or two of the muffins right out of the oven with they are still warm and irresistible. The muffins are great to pack for school lunches or snacks on the go too.

Other delicious muffins are the Almond Flour Pumpkin Muffins and the Sugar Free Banana Bread muffins!

I’m allergic to nuts. Could you use regular flour instead of almond flour? If so, would it be the same amount of flour?

Thank you so much for this recipe! It’s so hard to find good gluten-free baked goods and these are amazing!!

I love these muffins, but I feel like adding cinnamon or nutmeg would be amazing! Any thoughts on how much to add? I’m new to baking, and I don’t know how to improvise just yet.

Only one purple and one blue?? No yellow for the almond flower?

LooKs delicious. Do you know if i can substitute with ghee?

Hello! I am wondering if you know, what makes up the blue container in this recipe?

Sorry, I should have been more specific, I k ow what goes in the blue container, what I’m wondering is what in this muffin recipe counts as the blue?

we just made regular banana bread this weekend, and your recipe looks so much healthier – and just as yummy! I wonder if you could use ground flaxseed for some of the almond flour.

They sound great. Can you give the nutritional information on these muffins? Calories per muffin and so on.

Can the almond flour be substituted with something else? Oats maybe?
