Prep Time:

Serves:

6

Ingredients

Wet
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon grape seed oil
  • 1/3 cup xylitol
  • ¼ cup mashed banana (about 1 banana)
  • ¼ teaspoon Himalayan rock salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Dry Add-ins – see note
  • ¼ cup dairy-free chocolate chunks homemade or store-bought
  • ¼ cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 banana, chopped

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400F and place muffin liners in 6 muffin cups. Set aside.
  2. Combine wet ingredients in a medium-sized bowl.
  3. Sift dry ingredients into wet ingredients and stir to combine.
  4. Mix in chocolate chunks, walnuts and banana chunks (be sure to save a couple of pieces of each for the topping for each muffin).
  5. Divide mixture into the 6 muffin liners and top with bits of extra add-ins.
  6. Bake for 15-17 minutes, or until toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  7. Allow to cool for 5 minutes in the tray before removing and placing on a cooling rack.

Notes

Reserve a couple pieces of chocolate, walnuts and banana for the topping of each muffin. I’ve never had much success in making coconut flour based recipes, vegan/egg-free. That’s not to say it wont work, I just can’t seem to master it… yet.
