Recipe: Coconut Flour Banana Muffins

Coconut flour banana muffins are a type of muffin made using coconut flour as the primary dry ingredient and ripe bananas for flavor and moisture. Coconut flour is a gluten-free and high-fiber flour made from ground coconut meat. These muffins are a healthier alternative to traditional muffins, as coconut flour is lower in carbohydrates and higher in fiber. The ripe bananas provide natural sweetness, eliminating the need for excessive sugar. The result is a moist, flavorful muffin with a subtle coconut taste and a slightly denser texture due to the nature of coconut flour. These muffins are often enjoyed by those following gluten-free or grain-free diets and seeking a nutritious, tasty snack or breakfast option.

3 ripe bananas, mashed
3 large eggs
1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
1/4 cup coconut sugar (or your preferred sweetener)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup coconut flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
A pinch of salt


1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease or line a muffin tin with paper liners.

2. In a large bowl, combine the mashed bananas, eggs, melted coconut oil, coconut sugar, and vanilla extract. Mix until well combined.

3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the coconut flour, baking powder, baking soda, ground cinnamon, and salt.

4. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, stirring until a smooth batter forms. Allow the batter to sit for a few minutes to allow the coconut flour to absorb the liquid.

5. Spoon the batter evenly into the prepared muffin tin, filling each cup about 3/4 full.

6. Bake in the preheated oven for 18-22 minutes, or until the muffins are golden brown on top and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

7. Once baked, remove the muffins from the oven and allow them to cool in the tin for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.

8. Enjoy your coconut flour banana muffins as a delicious and nutritious snack or breakfast option!

Note: Coconut flour absorbs a lot of moisture, so it's important to use the correct amount of liquid ingredients to achieve the right consistency in your batter. The batter will be thicker than traditional muffin batters.

Feel free to customize these muffins by adding chopped nuts, chocolate chips, or dried fruit to the batter before baking. This recipe is also gluten-free due to the use of coconut flour.
