If you like the tropical flavour of banana muffins you'll love these banana coconut muffins!

Baking banana muffins is my favourite way to use bananas that are too ripe to eat by themselves. Even though my family likes the simple banana muffins, they love when I add different ingredients.

And banana and coconut together are just the perfect match.

Step 1: Gather Your Ingredients

Picture of Gather Your Ingredients
  • 1 1/2 cup Flour
  • 3/4 cup Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon Baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla
  • 1/3 cup Coconut oil
  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • Chocolate chips
  • Shredded unsweetened coconut

Step 2: Mash Bananas and Mix.

Mash the bananas, if you like your muffins with chunks of bananas don´t mash them too much. I like to mash them directly in one bowl.

Add melted coconut oil, sugar, egg and vanilla.

Step 3: Add the Rest

In a different bowl mix flour, baking powder and baking soda.

Add to the banana mixture but do not over mix. Just fold in until dry ingredients are just combined. This step makes a huge difference in the texture.

Add shredded cocounut and chocolate chips, fold and do not over mix.

Step 4:

This recipe makes exactly 12 mufins.

Coat muffin pans with coconut oil.

Scoop into muffin tin, distribute evenly the batter into the 12 muffin tins.

Top them with a little bit of shredded coconut, it will get toasted/crunch in the oven!

Step 5: Bake
