Banana Rice Flour Muffins

Baking with rice flour is a rewarding endeavor when we find a recipe that actually works!

In this case these rice flour banana muffins hold together really well!

It took a little bit of experimenting and time to create these but it was worth it...


  • 2 c. rice flour
  • 1t. arrowroot powder
  • 1t. salt
  • ¼ t. baking soda
  • 1t. cinnamon

Mix in a separate bowl:

  • 2 mashed bananas
  • ¼ c. water
  • 2/3 c. honey
  • 2 eggs
  • ¼ c. oil/applesauce
  • 2t. vanilla extract

Mix dry ingredients and wet ingredients separately then combine. Pour into greased muffin cups (silicon works great!) and place in preheated 375°F oven for 20-40 minutes. Allow the muffins to rest for 5-10 minutes before serving.


PS. These muffins freeze great!

    Voted. They sound wonderful, I love the idea of using rice-flour too, I bet that gives a lovely light texture! I use it in cupcakes sometimes. I have to point out though (not meaning to be picky, just an observation) that they contain eggs, so they are not actually vegan! I might try this recipe and use flax-seeds in place of the eggs, I should think it would work equally well. I don't know if you have discovered flax-seeds, but when mixed with water and left to "set", they are amazing as an egg substitute.

      Oh, yes-- I have used flax seed as an egg substitute many times! This recipe is one we've made with eggs during a farming adventure. I definitely agree with using flax seeds as an egg substitute and we think everyone should be open to experiment with different takes on a good recipe!

    I agree that it's nice that there are some gluten-free options since wheat can be heavy, and at times it's just nice to vary. Voted! Come check out my new post, Ripe from Around Here: A Vegan Guide to Local and Sustainable Eating (No Matter Where You Live).

      Yes! Actually our family has been off of wheat for some time, but we've been grinding our own grains for a number of years. It started out as wheat, then spelt, & rice --even 'milling' bean flour.

        How about corn?

          We've never ground the whole kernel corn into flour, but we have used it before. Actually we have a really great cornbread recipe which is made with cornmeal--I'll have to share the recipe sometime soon!
