Instructions Checklist

  • Whisk all-purpose flour, brown rice flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together in a medium bowl.

  • Combine sugar, butter, and eggs in a stand mixer bowl. Beat on medium speed until smooth. Add bananas, sour cream, and vanilla extract. Beat until smooth. Add in flour mixture gradually, in 3 additions. Fold in chocolate chips and coconut; batter will be quite thick.

  • Spoon batter into the prepared muffin cups, filling each 3/4 full.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean and edges are golden, 15 to 17 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool for 5 minutes before transferring muffins to a wire rack to cool completely, 20 to 30 minutes more.

I halved the recipe and got 8 muffins. I filled the cupcake pan almost to the top and they rose very nicely. My neighbors were all home (on both sides) so I gifted the muffins to them (after I ate one). Everyone voted 5 stars and wanted more. Wish I had made the whole recipe! Thanks for sharing. Read More

These are super muffins, nice and moist! I did make quite a few alterations to make a bit healthier: - I halved the sugar - replaced 1/2 the flour with rolled oats & ground flax - for the butter, I used 1/2 the butter and 1/2 olive oil - instead of sour cream used a full protein skyr plain yogurt - used blueberries instead of choc chips - added a couple choc chips to top of each muffin They rose nice & high, very fluffy, fantastic, will make again!
