Banana Coconut Flour Muffins

What’s not to love about muffins? These ones are pretty-nearly foolproof, and I’m by no means an expert baker. So I make a batch of these nearly every week. They are  full of protein and fiber, and their only sugar comes from bananas and raisins. My kids eat them for breakfast and dessert, the adults have them as snacks, and I serve them when people come ’round for tea. I hope you like them.
Coconut Flour Banana Raisin Muffins (grain-free, dairy-free, gluten-free, nut-free and no added sugar)

 

Ingredients:

  • 4 ripe bananas, mashed (about 1 cup)
  • 4-6 large organic eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2/3  cup coconut oil, melted
  • 2/3 cup coconut flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  •  a few dashes of ground cinnamon
  • a handful of raisins, optional

Make them:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Using 2 standard muffin tins line 18 cups with paper cupcake liners. (I’m partial to cheetah print lately.)
  3. Melt coconut oil in a small saucepan on the stove, over low-med heat.
  4. Mash bananas and eggs using a hand mixer. Add vanilla, coconut oil and mix.
  5. Add dry ingredients and mix until smooth.
  6. Add raisins and mix in a with a spoon.
  7. Scoop batter into 18 muffin cups and cook 25 minutes or so, until toothpick in the center comes out clean.
  8. Allow muffins to cool before removing from the pan.
  9. Refrigerate in an airtight container for about a week. Freeze in a ziplock bag for longer.

I do some variation on these frequently. Berries, nuts, chocolate chips are all really good in these instead of raisins.
