Gluten-Free Banana Walnut Chia Muffins


Original recipe yields 12 servings

Ingredient Checklist

  • ⅓ cup water
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1 ¾ cups gluten-free all purpose baking flour
  • ¾ cup coconut sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup plain fat-free yogurt
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup mashed ripe bananas
  • ¾ cup chopped walnuts



  • Step 1
    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease 12 muffin cups or line with paper liners.
  • Step 2
    Mix water and chia seeds together in a small bowl; set aside until chia seed gel is thickened, about 10 minutes.
  • Step 3
    Combine flour, coconut sugar, baking soda, baking powder, and salt together in a bowl. Whisk chia gel, yogurt, oil, egg, and vanilla extract together in a separate bowl; stir into flour mixture just until batter is moistened. Fold bananas and walnuts into batter. Fill muffin cups 2/3-full with batter.
  • Step 4
    Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 22 to 25 minutes. Cool muffins for 5 minutes in the tin before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
