Vegan Banana Coconut Muffins

August 18, 2015

Hey, Family!


Today I'm sharing the recipe for one of my favorite breakfast treats: Banana Coconut Muffins.


But first, I have to make sure you've seen this recent picture of acting legend Cecily Tyson at age 90! Ms. Tyson is a long-time vegan who stopped eating meat in the 1960s and she works out regularly. How's that for inspiration! Reign on, Ms. Tyson.


Now, on to today's topic...


Vegan Banana Coconut Muffins


In my last email, I mentioned that I'd post the recipe for the vegan blueberry coffee cake that I was going to make for my niece's sleepover. Well, I tried a recipe from one of my vegan cookbooks and it didn't turn out so well. I was not a happy camper, especially since I spent about $18 bucks on three different kinds of organic whole grain flour!


So to make things right again, I whipped up a batch of my tried-and-true (and much less expensive) Banana Coconut Muffins. They were delish and had the whole house smelling divine!



Vegan Banana Coconut Muffins


1 1/3 cups whole spelt flour

1/4 cup of maple syrup or agave nectar

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon sea salt

1/2 cup oat bran

1 cup chopped walnuts or almonds (save 12 or more larger pieces to put on top of muffins)

1/3 cup unsweetened shredded coconut

4 ripe bananas

1/4 cup light coconut oil

1 tsp vanilla extract

2/3 cup almond milk


Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a large bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt. Stir in oat bran. In a separate bowl, mash the bananas and add in oil, agave nectar, vanilla, and almond milk. Combine the banana mixture with the flour mixture, then add chopped nuts and coconut and fold all together until just mixed. Spoon mixture into a lightly oiled muffin tin (or paper muffin cups in a muffin tin), place one or more large nut pieces on top of each muffin, and bake for 15-20 minutes. Makes 12 muffins.


And if you want to make a gluten-free version, use certified gluten-free oat flour instead of spelt flour. (I use Bob's Red Mill brand.) Give them a try and let me know how much you love em!


Have a great rest of the week, family.


Much love,
