Pam’s Prune Banana Muffins

Knowing that they love prunes as much as we do, we asked our TBF employees to send us their favorite recipes using our pitted organic prunes. Pam, our A/P & A/R Specialist, shared her favorite breakfast and snack recipe. If you have ripe bananas laying around, you’re going to want to make Pam’s Prune Banana Muffins. According to Pam and her taste-testers, these muffins are “delicious, sweet, spicy, moist, and very satisfying.”

Serves: 12 | Prep Time: 10 min | Cook Time: 25 min


  • 1 cup chopped pitted TBF prunes
  • 1 cup mashed bananas
  • 1-1/2 cup gluten-free all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg


Preheat oven 350 degrees F. Prepare muffin pan with paper liners or grease & flour.

In a large bowl, combine wet ingredients: olive oil, egg, mashed bananas & vanilla extract. Beat until smooth.

In a medium bowl, combine dry ingredients: sugar, flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, & nutmeg. Whisk until blended.

Mix wet & dry ingredients together until smooth.

Fold prunes into the mixture. Once combined, spoon mixture into muffin pan.

Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean.

Note from Pam: These are wonderful muffins. If desired, add nuts!
