Maple Banana Muffins:

Sugar-Free and so Easy!


Use up your ripe bananas (the browner, the better!) and make these healthy Silver & Gold muffins for breakfast or as a snack.


  • Ingredients

  • 1/3 Cup melted coconut oil

  • 1/2 Cup natural maple syrup

  • 2 eggs

  • 3 mashed ripe bananas

  • 1/4 cup milk (we used unsweetened almond milk)

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

  • 1-3/4 Cups whole wheat flour (or gluten-free flour)

  • 1/3 Cup oats

  • 1 teaspoon coconut sugar for sprinkling on top



Here’s what you do: 

Preheat oven to 325°F degrees. Grease 12 muffin cups with butter, or line them with muffin cup paper.    


In a large bowl, beat the coconut oil and maple syrup together with a whisk. Add the eggs and whisk well. Mix in the mashed bananas and milk, baking soda, vanilla extract, salt and cinnamon.


Add the flour and oats to the bowl and mix with a large spoon. 

Pour the batter in the muffin cups and sprinkle the tops of the muffins with a light sprinkling of the sugar. Bake muffins for 23 to 25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into a muffin comes out clean.


Yield: 12 muffins that will leave you craving for more!
