Coconut Banana Muffins

 

These delicious coconut banana muffins are probably one of the quickest and easiest recipes that I cook in the last 30 minutes before guests arrive. Made with fresh grated coconut and spelt flour, they are intensly aromatic, moderately sweet, healthy and super easy to make.

PRINT THE RECIPE

Preparation: 10 min.
Cooking: 22-25 min.
Total time: 32-35 min.

Ingredients (yield: 8 muffins):

  • 1  big ripe banana, mashed
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar or maple syrup
  • 200 g spelt flour
  • 40 g coconut flour or shredded coconut
  • 40 g coconut oil of room temperature
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp vanillin powder
  • 40 ml diary-free (almon, cashew, rice, etc.) milk
  • 3 tbsps fresh grated coconut
  • 1 flaxegg (1 tbsp ground flaxseeds + 3 tbsps water)

Method:

1. Preheat oven to 180°C. Line a 8 hole muffin tin with paper cases.
2. Sift together all dry ingredients.
3. Add mashed banana, coconut oil, non-diary milk, and the flax egg into the flour mix. Combine all the ingredients well. Then leave the dough to swell for about 7-10 minutes.

You can make homemade coconut flour by high-speed processing a store-bought shredded coconut in a blender or a food procesor until it appears finely ground. It would definetely be the most budget-friendly option to get the coconut flour.

4. Scoop about 1/4 – 1/3 cup of batter for each muffin and bake for about 22-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the muffin comes out clean.

These flavorful coconut banana muffins have the right texture, vegan-friendly and are easy to make. If you don’t follow the vegetarion diet, you can replace the flaxegg and diary-free with regular egg and milk.

And if you do make them, Instagram me a photo! I love it when people do that (no seriously, it’s kind of my favorite).
