Sugarfree Banana & Coconut Mini Muffins

Sugarfree Banana & Coconut Mini Muffins

January 04, 2018 1 Comment

Nesting is in full swing for me at present with only 2 weeks until my baby is due, and one my more fun jobs is stocking the freezer with breastfeeding friendly snacks for the 2 am feeds!

As I was experimenting with this sugar-free banana and coconut muffin recipe, I thought it would also be perfect for little ones and lunch boxes in particular.

They're completely grain AND nut free (you guys are always on the hunt for nut free recipes!) and can easily be made dairy free too. With the only sweetness coming from the bananas, it pays to make sure they're really ripe or add a dash of maple or rice malt syrup if you really need to. I didn't. 

These are delightfully fluffy and just perfect for pulling out of the freezer and microwaving for afternoon tea or a healthy snack.

Makes: 16 mini muffins or 8 large muffins

Time: make 10 mins

Bake time: 22 mins

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 medium-sized brown bananas
  • 1/2 cup greek yoghurt (or coconut yoghurt if dairy free)
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 1/2 cup tapioca or arrowroot flour
  • 1 cup desiccated coconut
  • 2 Tbsp coconut flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt

DIRECTIONS:

1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees and grease some mini muffin trays.

2. In the bowl of a food processor, place banana, yoghurt, vanilla and eggs. Pulse to combine.

3. Add desiccated coconut, tapioca, coconut flour, baking powder and salt. Mix to combine.

4. Let mixture rest for 2-3 mins so coconut flour can absorb some liquid.

5. Spoon mixture into the pre-prepared tray and sprinkle with some more desiccated coconut then transfer to the oven for 20-22 mins or until brown on top and springs back to touch.

*if making larger muffins, they will need an extra 10 minutes of cook time.

These will keep in an airtight container for 3-4 days in the fridge or up to 2 months in the freezer.

Love these! They really are naturally very sweet. Going to make another batch now and try out putting some different extras in them. Will put a raspberry on the centre of some, blueberries in others and sugar free chocolate chips in a few too. Bet they’ll be delicious!

The incidence of nut allergies seems to be on the rise. I see it at work as a nurse with the increasing children of children who come into the hospital with degrees of allergic reactions, from mild rashes to full-blown anaphylactic shock.
