Banana Muffins

February 7, 2011

Muffins without grains, dairy, nuts/seeds and eggs? Yes, it's possible! These nourishing Banana Muffins feature coconut flour and use gelatin as an egg substitute. I recommend using a high-quality grassfed gelatin for the recipe. This is a great recipe to batch and throw in the oven for a quick bite.


Serves: 10


Here's What you Need...


  • ⅓ c coconut flour, available here ¼ arrowroot flour, available here

  • ½ tsp sea salt

  • ½ tsp baking soda

  • 1 tsp cinnamon

  • 3 bananas, mashed (Make sure they are yellow but slightly green; very ripe bananas do not work well)

  • ⅓ c coconut or palm oil, melted

  • ¼ c applesauce (pure, unsweetened)

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

  • ¼ c water, plus 1 tbsp gelatin 


    2 tbsp blueberries







  • Line muffin tin with parchment paper liners. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

  • Mix the coconut flour, arrowroot flour, sea salt, cinnamon, and baking soda together in a small bowl. Set aside.

  • In another bowl using an electric mixer, combine the mashed bananas, melted oil, applesauce, and vanilla. Mix well.

  • In a small saucepan, add the ¼ c water and sprinkle the gelatin over the water. Allow this to sit for about two minutes.

  • While the gelatin is “blooming,” add the dry ingredients to the banana mixture and beat until combined.

  • Turning your attention back to the saucepan, turn the heat to medium-low to melt the gelatin. This takes about one minute. Then whisk until very frothy. Work quickly. Add this to the batter, and stir.

  • Add blueberries to mixture

  • Using heaping tablespoon measures to drop the batter into your prepared muffin tin.

  • Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes until lightly golden on top.

  • This recipe makes 10 muffins. They are delicious served hot from the oven – no need to cool down as they hold together so well.
