Coconut Banana Muffins

As mentioned before a friend asked me to bake some paleo goodies for a fundraiser.  I had a really hard time finding anything - but this recipe may just do the trick.  The consistency is very nice, and the coconut almost gives them a pumpkin bread flavor.

For 12 muffins you will need:
1 cup coconut flour
6 eggs
3 ripe bananas (mashed)
2 Tbsp melted butter
2 Tbsp coconut oil
2 Tbsp milk (or coconut milk)
3 Tbsp honey
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/8 tsp sea salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp allspice

1.  Preheat oven to 350
2.  In a small bowl, mix coconut flour and baking powder
3.  In a large bowl, beat eggs gradually.  Then add milk, agave nectar, coconut oil, butter, salt, vanilla and spices.
4.  Add coconut mixture to egg mixture.   Then add mashed bananas.
5.  Fill muffin cups and bake at 350 for 25 minutes.  They are done when a toothpick inserted in the middle of the muffins comes out clean.


  1. I've made some similar muffins. The first three batches came out great, the fourth not so much. They didn't rise much, and I figured out what I did wrong. You are supposed to sift the coconut flour FIRST and then measure it. I measured it and then sifted it...I had WAY too much coconut flour and that stuff absorbs liquid like crazy!! Live & learn.

  2. there are some other goodies that might qualify for "primal or paleo" - search for almond flour or coconut flour - lots of nice recipes come up
