Coconut Flour Banana Muffins

I’ve been having so much fun playing with this Gluten Free/Dairy Free Muffin recipe!  We’re on the home stretch of the Gluten Free Experiment we’ve been conducting at our house (more on that soon), but I guarantee you we’ll continue to make these muffins and all the fun variations I’m coming up with whether we’re gluten free or not.   What a healthy little muffin (that just so happens to taste like cake).

Coconut flour is high in fiber, high in protein, making it a wonderful addition to your diet.  I find coconut flour at Tropical Traditions or Amazon.  I’m so in love with this stuff that I might just write a post all about it someday soon.

I don’t recommend substituting whole wheat flour in this recipe. Coconut flour and wheat flour are not created equal.  If you want a Whole Wheat Banana Muffin recipe, check out this one!  We love it!

Coconut Flour Banana Muffins

1/2 cup Coconut Flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
6 eggs
4 Tablespoons Coconut Oil, melted
1/4 cup honey
2-3 ripe, mashed bananas
1/2 cup nuts (optional)

Mix all ingredients together, then pour batter into a well greased (or paper lined) muffin pan.  Bake at 350 for 15-25 minutes.  Makes 12 muffins.


I never put nuts in muffins because 5 out of 6 of us don’t care for them in our baked goods.  How ’bout you?  Are you a nutty kind of person?  (I really mean to ask if you like nuts in your muffins…not if you consider yourself to be nuts, but feel free to answer according to how you’re feeling today.)

    Could you substitute pumpkin for the banana and get a different flavor? If so, do you have a recommendation for how much pumpkin to use? I just tried a different pumpkin muffin recipe with coconut flour and there just was not enough pumpkin flavor.

    Sounds like a great idea! I’ve not done it before but I would imagine you would use about a cup of pumpkin puree. Plus, be sure to throw in cinnamon and maybe nutmeg too! :)
