We had some bananas that were going to be over riped and so making banana muffins or cakes would be perfect. Blessed to have a Trader Joe’s near us (affordable organic/gluten-free stuff), I decided to use gluten-free and organic ingredients. While I have always been baking, using a different variation of flour was something new to me.. But I experimented and it was surprisingly good! 

In my recipe here, I’ll be posting the Gluten-Free version, it’s entirely up to you as to whether you will want to purchase them organic or not. I know Organic is super expensive in Singapore 😫.

Airfryer directions below the post! 

12 Muffins | 30 mins | Gluten-Free 


  • 1 cup Gluten-Free Flour
  • 1 cup Almond Flour (or Coconut Flour)
  • 1/4 cup Chia Seeds; blended
  • 1 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 2 Large Eggs
  • 6 tbsp Unsalted Butter; softened (or 1/2 cup Coconut/Sunflower Oil)
  • 1/2 cup/4oz Apple Sauce (or Cane/Coconut Sugar)
  • 1 tbsp Raw Honey (or normal Honey)
  • 1 tbsp Grade A Maple Syrup
  • 1/2 cup Almond Milk (or Coconut Milk)
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 2 Del-Monte Bananas  
  • 1/2 cup Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips optional


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit or 180 degree Celcius. 
  2. In bowl A, mix Almond Flour, Gluten-Free Flour, blended Chia Seeds, Baking Soda and Salt. 
  3. In bowl B, blend Eggs, Butter, Almond Milk and Vanilla Extract. 
  4. Mash in Bananas. 
  5. Add dry items from bowl A gradually and mix well. 
  6. Add Apple Sauce, Honey and Maple Syrup. Mix well. 
  7. Fold in Chocolate Chips. 
  8. Scoop into oiled muffin tray. Cupcake liners are optional.
  9. Bake for 18-20 minutes. 


  • It is important to use trays and not let your batter sit in filmsy paper liners. Gluten-free items will not hold well and liners are too filmsy. 
  • If using the Airfryer, you can use firm paper cups (picture below). Preheat Airfryer to 350 degrees Fahrenheit or 180 degree Celcius. Use steps 2-7. Airfry for 9 mins then lower temperature to 320 degrees Fahrenheit or 160 degree Celcius and Airfry for another 6 mins.
