12 muffins


  • ¾ cup coconut flour, spooned and leveled

  • 3 teaspoons baking powder

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda

  • 4 large eggs

  • ¾ cup coconut milk

  • cup white sugar

  • ¼ cup coconut oil, melted

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1 ¼ cups shredded unsweetened coconut, divided


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line 12 muffin cups with paper liners.

  2. Sift coconut flour together with baking powder, salt, and baking soda into a bowl and set aside.

  3. Whisk eggs, coconut milk, sugar, coconut oil, and vanilla extract together in a bowl until smooth and creamy. Add flour mixture to the wet ingredients and mix until well combined. Let sit for 5 minutes to allow the coconut flour to absorb the liquid.

  4. Fold 1 cup coconut flakes into the batter. Distribute the batter evenly among the prepared cups, filling them 2/3 of the way full. Sprinkle the remaining 1/4 cup coconut flakes over the tops of the muffins.

  5. Bake in the preheated oven until the tops are golden and a toothpick inserted into the center of one of the muffins comes out clean, 18 to 20 minutes.

  6. Cool muffins in the pan on a wire rack for 5 minutes before removing them to continue cooling directly on the wire rack.
