12 muffins


  • cooking spray

  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour

  • ½ cup brown rice flour

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • 1 cup white sugar

  • ¼ cup butter, softened

  • 2 eggs

  • 1 cup mashed ripe bananas

  • ½ cup sour cream

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • ½ cup chocolate chips

  • ½ cup sweetened flaked coconut


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray a 12-cup muffin tin with cooking spray and set aside.

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

  3. 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.

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

  5. 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.
