Peanut Butter Banana Coconut Flour Muffins

Thankfully I’m starting to crave healthier foods as I approach the third trimester of pregnancy. I am eliminating flour from my diet again, and white sugar will probably not be far behind. I can’t say exactly where this current muffin flavour craving came from (the heavens probably), but they definitely turned out better than expected. Blog-worthy, as it is these days.

Next time I will try adding walnuts or pepitas too. Now, if anyone has recommendations for keeping the top bananas from going grey I’d love to hear it. 🙂

3 eggs
1 Tbsp melted coconut oil
1/4 cup peanut butter
5 Tbsp brown sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 mashed bananas (save last 1/2 for slices on top)
1/3 cup coconut flour
1/2 tsp baking powder

Preheat oven to 375F. With a hand blender, blend together eggs, coconut oil, peanut butter, sugar, vanilla, and salt.

Mash the bananas roughly with a fork, and add them to the wet ingredients.

Combine the flour and baking powder. Fold wet into dry, careful not to overmix.

Spoon into greased muffin pan, top with slices of banana and bake for 15 minutes.
