Banana & Maple Muffins from Coconut Flour

Light and delicious muffins that are my son’s favorite. I make a lot of different healthy muffins at home, but those are always the most popular muffins.

When we buy bananas, sometimes 4 bananas disappear and after a few days my husband suddenly pulls them out of some cupboard and says:

“Look what I found! I wonder what you can make with that?”

Muffins Ingredients

  • 4 eggs
  • 6 tablespoons coconut flour
  • 3 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 4 extra ripe bananas (brown)
  • 5 dates without kernels
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil or grape seeds
  • 2 tablespoons real maple syrup
  • Pinch of cinnamon
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

Filling Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons almond flour
  • 2 tablespoons real maple syrup, agave or honey
  • 1 cup chopped and unroasted nuts and almonds
  • Pinch of salt
  • Pinch of cinnamon

Preparing the Muffins

  • Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius, and place paper baskets for muffins in a muffin baking pan. I recommend using a silicone baking pan. If the paper baskets don’t reach the full height, the exposed area is oiled with coconut oil.
  • Grind the bananas with the dates in a food processor until they become a liquid paste.
  • Add the eggs one by one.
  • Add the maple syrup and oil, and continue mixing until the mixture is smooth and even.
  • Mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl and slowly add them to the food processor while it works at the lowest speed until the mixture is uniform.
  • Pour the mixture into the muffins cups. Fill each cup only half to leave room for the filling. Set aside while preparing the filling.

Preparing the Filling

  • Mix all the filling ingredients in a bowl until they stick well together.
  • Take the filling with a spoon and place over the muffin mixture.
  • Put in the oven and bake for 40-45 minutes.
  • After 35 minutes you often have to check that the filling has hardened but hasn’t burned.
  • Once the muffins are ready, remove them from the oven and let them cool for at least 20-30 minutes.
