Need a delicious sweet treat? Try these Gluten-Free Banana Coconut Mini Muffins – 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 mini 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.
Gluten-Free Banana Coconut Mini Muffins
- 2 cups of all-purpose gluten-free flour
- 1 tsp organic baking soda
- 1 tsp gluten-free baking powder
- 1 tsp sea salt
- 2 eggs or egg replacer equivalent (I typically use Ener-G)
- 1 cup raw organic sugar
- 1/4 cup finely shredded coconut, unsweetened (or use coconut flakes and finely shred in a blender for a few seconds)
- 4 ripe bananas, mashed
- 1 tsp organic vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup organic extra-virgin
- 1 tsp organic cinnamon
- Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
- Mix all dry ingredients together (save about 1 tbsp of shredded coconut and set aside).
- Beat eggs together and then add to the dry ingredients.
- Add all other wet ingredients and mix until sticky. Don’t over mix.
- Add liners to mini muffin pan. Fill each muffin tin hole to 2/3 full.
- Bake for 15 minutes.
- Remove from oven and garnish with remaining 1 tbsp of shredded coconut.
Makes about 40 mini muffins.
