This recipe is only sweetened with banana and a small amount of maple syrup in the cinnamon topping. Yummy!

  • 1/2 c. coconut flour, organic
  • 1/4 tsp. baking soda, pure
  • 1/4 tsp. sea salt, unrefined and pure
  • 4 egg, omega-3, cage-free, organic
  • 1/3 c. coconut milk, unsweetened, full-fat, organic, canned
  • 1/2 c. banana, fresh, organic
  • 2 tbs. cinnamon, ground, organic
  • 1/8 c. banana, fresh, organic
  • 2 tbs. coconut oil, raw, extra-virgin, organic
  • 1 tbs. maple syrup, pure, organic

Preheat oven to 350°F. Line 12 cups of a muffin pan with paper liners.

Make the muffins: Whisk together coconut flour, baking soda, and sea salt in a small bowl. In another small bowl, combine 1/2 cup mashed banana, eggs, and coconut milk. Mix with a hand mixer until well blended. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix with a hand mixer until well combined. Scoop batter into prepared muffin cups with an ice-cream scoop, filling each cup about 3/4 of the way.

Make the topping: In a small bowl, combine cinnamon, 1/8 cup (2 tablespoons) of mashed banana, melted coconut oil, and maple syrup. Drizzle mixture over top of muffins and, using a toothpick, swirl the topping into the muffin batter. Reserve some of the cinnamon topping.

Bake muffins for 20-25 minutes or until toothpick inserted into center comes out clean. In the last 5 minutes of baking add more cinnamon topping to the tops of the muffins. Allow muffins to cool in pan 5-10 minutes, then transfer to wire rack. Enjoy immediately, but I prefer them the next day…..if they last that long. Enjoy!
