  • Blend together eggs, banana, honey, butter, vanilla extract, and salt in a large bowl with an electric mixer until combined.

  • Combine coconut flour, baking powder, and cinnamon in a separate bowl. Whisk into banana batter until there are no lumps. Fold in walnuts. Pour batter into prepared muffin cups.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean and tops are golden brown, about 20 minutes.

Cook's Note:

You can substitute pecans for walnuts, if desired.

These turned out great! Healthy and carb-conscious. Fluffy and no weird "healthy food" bitter aftertaste...very convincing to the white flour and canola oil type of muffin maker. I DID adjust the recipe only a wee bit by using cardamom instead of the cinnamon and placing the walnuts on top as a topping rather than in the batter. This is because I am serving a 1st grader who doesn't like walnuts. It didn't peel away very easily from the paper muffin liner; maybe next time I will hit the inside of the muffin papers with some coconut oil cooking spray. Anyway highly recommended! Read More

Not sure what I did wrong, but my batter turned out to be more of a cookie consistency. So I made mookies (muffins+cookies) instead. I think I might add dark chocolate chips next time. Read More

I made the recipe exactly as prescribed except I omitted the nuts and made 12 mini muffins instead of 6 bigger ones. They were lighter than pictured and did not flatten out or rise, so they looked funny. The smell and flavor was delicious, however, and they held together well. I wished for more moisture--maybe next time I'll use a bigger banana and a little added liquid. Read More

This was my first time using coconut flour and probably my last. The taste of the muffin is good, but the texture is off. The recipe has five stars so I gave it a try. Read More

I thought these were good. My very ripe banana was frozen, and I didn't drain any water from it when it thawed since some people said the batter was too thick. My batter seemed just right, and they were moist and held up well. The texture is different from wheat flour, but it was still good. Read More
