Recipe's preparation

  1. 1. Pre heat fan forced oven to 170 C.

    2. Line one 12 hole cupcake pan & one 6 hole cupcake pan with large paper patty pans.

    3. Put peeled, roughly halved bananas into bowl and purée for 5 seconds, speed 6. 

    4. Scrape down bowl with spatula.

    5. Add: Eggs, honey, macadamia nut oil, cinnamon, baking powder, coconut flour & protein powder.

    9. Gently pour batter into patty pans using a small rubber tipped spatula to help. Half (1/2) fill patty pans.

    10. Bake for 25 minutes (until a rich golden colour).

    11. Allow to cool 10 minutes before placing on wire rack to cool completely.






Accessories you need



Once cooled, I freeze the batch and pop them in the kids lunch boxes frozen. By morning tea the muffins are thawed and moist.

Sometimes I use mini cupcake pans - makes about 30 mini muffins. Cooking time is reduced to 15 mins or until rich golden colour - be careful not to over cook as they can dry out!

  • Interesting, I have never

    Interesting, I have never tried using frozen banana in this recipe. The aim is to get a smooth, soft banana puree base.

    The coconut flour absorbs a lot of moisture, so I wouldn't add more flour, perhaps just let the finished batter (after you have combined all the ingredients) sit in the bowl for 1 or 2 minutes. I have noticed that if I am interrupted and leave the combined mixture before I pop into the patty pans, it does thicken, so perhaps that could be a way to absorb the additional moisture without drying out the batter. And maybe even knead, closed lid for an additional minute after it has had a few minutes to absorb?

    Hope that helps!

    If I use frozen banana do I need to add extra flour to compensate water content

  • Hi there lyn1977, the vanilla

    Submitted by Willcom on 31. January 2015 - 15:22.

    Hi there lyn1977, the vanilla protien powder I use is from Teresa Cutter, Healthy Chef, which I purchase from her online store, but any good quality vanilla protein powder from a health food store will work.

    You can omit the protein powder and add an extra 5g to 10g of cocount flour, so you can try a total of 80 to 85g of coconut flour. To get the vanilla flavour I would then also add 1 teaspoon of vanilla bean paste.
