Banana Nut Keto Breakfast Muffins

One of my favorite things to do in the past was to prepare foods in batches that save me time on busy days.  Things like muffins are always a great go-to breakfast option since they are handheld and typically easy to double or triple batches.  This recipe shows me that I can still have my favorite easy on the go options while still remaining keto-friendly!

Do Banana Nut Muffins Need to be Refrigerated? 

While it is not necessary to refrigerate these muffins, it is highly recommended.  A banana nut keto muffin will be okay if properly stored at room temperature for 2-3 days.  For the longest shelf life, it is best to store them in the refrigerator until ready to eat.

Tip: If refrigerated, you may prefer to heat them in the microwave for 30 seconds and add a bit of butter to the muffin before eating.

Can I freeze Low Carb Banana Muffins? 

Yes!  Just like most muffin recipes, you can definitely freeze a low carb banana muffin.  The best method for freezing any muffin is to allow them to cool completely before placing them into a freezer storage bag or freezer storage container.  If stored when still warm, it will create condensation inside the container.  That condensation then creates freezer burn which results in a poor flavor once reheated.

Tip: Write the date the muffin was baked, the name of the recipe, and tips for reheating on a label.  Place this on the outside of the bag or container for reference later.

Where can I buy Banana Extract? 

The secret to getting banana flavor without the carbohydrates associated with bananas is in the extract used in this recipe.  Banana extract is commonly found in the baking supply aisle of your grocery store.  If your store does not carry it on a regular basis, you can easily order it on Amazon.  A good banana extract is valuable for a keto diet as it can add flavor to many recipes without adding the extra carbs you are trying to avoid.

How to Make Banana Keto Banana Nut Muffins

Before you begin mixing your batter, you will want to preheat your oven and prepare your muffin pan.  I prefer to use parchment paper liners, but you could also use a silicone muffin pan and simply spray with non-stick spray.

Prepare your bowls and supplies, then begin with whisking your eggs well.

  1. I had my doubts about banana extract but it’s good! The muffins came out very light and fluffy. I really been craving something sweet in this hit the spot. I would give this recipe five stars but it did not let me select the stars.

    1. Glad you liked it!! That’s weird about the star rating. I will look into it and see what the problem is. Thanks for letting me know.
