Need a delicious sweet treat? Try this Gluten Free Banana Coconut Muffins Recipe – it’s one of my favorite gluten-free recipes. They taste just like banana bread in a bite-sized piece that’s simply scrumptious (it’s based off my gluten-free banana bread recipe)
My kids absolutely love these Gluten Free Banana Coconut Muffins. We usually take these to school for birthday and other celebrations instead of sugar-laden cupcakes. I reserve a bit of the shredded coconut flakes to use as a garnish – and my kids think they’re sprinkles. Win and win.
We also make these muffins for breakfast to eat on the go or enjoy as an after school snack. They are so addictive – try and just eat one. I bet you can’t do it. You’ll be eating one right after the other.
Where to Get Kitchen Pantry Essentials
I get my other kitchen pantry supplies like sea salt, black pepper, spices, coconut oil, and other essentials either on Amazon or my local health food store usually. But then I got a Thrive membership. If you don’t already have one – it’s awesome! It’s like Whole Foods meets Costco. Bob’s Red Mill baking soda, for instance, is about $3 at my local health food store and $6 on Amazon. But it’s only $2.03 (YES!) on Thrive Market. Great deal right? And the raw honey?! Don’t even get me started how much that costs at the health food store. But on Thrive Market it’s just $5.45 for a 10.5 oz jar of raw honey.
