Making Coconut Flour Muffins:
Just a few ingredients are needed for these amazing muffins!
Tip: Use a potato masher to puree the banana.
Add the wet ingredients to a mixing bowl – eggs, mashed banana, coconut oil, non-dairy milk, and vanilla.
Next, add the dry ingredients (coconut flour, baking soda, salt) to the wet ingredients and whisk to combine.
When fully combined, add the chocolate chips and stir together.
Spoon equally into six muffin liners, in a muffin tray. Add a few dairy-free chocolate chips to the top of each muffin.
Bake at 350 degrees F. for about 30 minutes until lightly browned and a toothpick comes out clean.
Enjoy for breakfast, as a snack, brunch or with afternoon tea!
- Be careful not to over-mix the muffin batter. It’s best not to use an electric mixer unless it has a low setting. Beating the muffins may produce tough muffins instead of light and fluffy.
- Try using an ice cream scoop to fill the liners keep muffins uniform in size.
- Try silicone liners, but if using paper liners, put the baked muffins in the refrigerator for an hour to assure easier release.
Additional Notes About Coconut Flour:
- Due to the unique properties of coconut flour, you cannot substitute any other flour in this recipe. Other gluten-free flours usually require less moisture and would not work as a 1:1 swap.
- Coconut flour absorbs and needs moisture, so there are usually more eggs in a recipe. Generally speaking, the more coconut flour you use, the more eggs and/or liquid you will need to add.
- It is lighter than almond flour which makes it ideal for baked goods; donuts, quick bread, rolls, cookies, bars, cakes, muffins, bread, and pancakes.
- Due to the fiber content, it is harder for some to digest, so if just starting out, maybe try in small doses (a muffin might be the right size).
- Best stored in a container in the refrigerator.
