Banana, Blueberry and Coconut Muffin


This is a  great cheat day or midweek snack .  This muffin contains no sugar or sweetener.  The sweet taste come from the ripe bananas and blueberries and a crunch from the almonds.  It’s also good to make when you have the “feel like a muffin today” crave.


1 cup almond meal

2 tsp baking powder

I cup desiccated coconut

3 ripe bananas

1 tsp ground cinnamon

4 eggs beaten

¼ cup coconut oil

¼ cup blaeberries

¼ cup almond flakes


Preheat oven to 180°C

Add the almond meal, baking powder, eggs, cinnamon, desiccated coconut, mashed banana and coconut oil in a bowl.  Mix all the ingredients, making sure they are just combined.  Don’t overmix.  Fold blueberries and almonds in the mixture.

Use ¼ cup to pour the muffin batter into muffin tins or cups.  Bake for 30 minutes.  Insert skewer to make sure it’s cooked.  (Skewer has to be clear)

Let it cool for ten minutes, then remove to cool further on a rack.  Enjoy with a  cup of green tea.
