Paleo Banana Muffins

I just love muffins. I love their convenience- they’re the perfect on-the-go breakfast or snack. And we’ve discussed my love for breakfast and all things bready/sweet. I make muffins, a million variations, pretty often.


These are delicious and filling. Really banana-y (obviously… :)) with a hint of coconut. Super healthy, yummy way to start your day!

Prep time: 10 minutes

Bake time: 23-25 minutes


2 ripe bananas, mashed

1/3 cup coconut oil (this is my favorite brand)

3 room temperature eggs, separated

2-4 tablespoons honey or maple syrup (use less sweetener the more ripe your bananas are)

1 tsp vanilla

1/2 cup coconut flour

1/2 tsp baking soda

1 tsp cinnamon

1/4 tsp salt


-Preheat oven to 350. Place paper liners in muffin tin or grease generously.

-Mash bananas. Separate eggs.

-In a mixer, beat egg whites until stiff, 4-5 minutes.

-In a medium bowl, combine bananas, egg yolks, coconut oil, maple syrup and vanilla. Add the last 4 ingredients, stirring until smooth.

-Slowly fold egg whites in to batter.

-Spoon batter into muffin tin, filling each 1/2 full. (Batter will be enough for 10-12 muffins, depending on the size of your bananas.)

-Bake for 23-25 minutes.

  • Hmm, just made these and they are super moist and just the right amount of sweetness. Made them for my one years old’s birthday, he loves banana! Topped it with a brown butter icing for a treat:)ReplyCancel
