Whole30 Banana Coconut Muffins

My hubby is currently doing Whole30 so I made this recipe especially for him!  What's Whole30 you ask?  Here is a great explanation from Nom Nom Paleo.  It's basically strict Paleo with no added sugars for 30 days.  The only sugar this recipe contains is natural, from the bananas and unsweetened coconut (do not use sweetened coconut!).  We ate these for breakfast with almond butter.  They were so delish that I think I may start omitting added sugar from now on!

TIP: Add 2/3 cup nuts to make these more filling or just substitute the coconut with nuts (Won't be as sweet).

Whole30 Banana Coconut Muffins
Prep Time: Approximately 10 minutes
Cook Time: Approximately 23-25 minutes
Yields: 12 muffins

  • 4 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 2/3 cup shredded unsweetened coconut (Can be hard to find, check the organic section of your grocery store)
  • 2 1/4 cup almond flour
  • 1 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp cream of tartar* 
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 4 eggs
* I recently learned that baking powder contains cornstarch so it is not true Paleo.  If you need to use baking powder instead of cream of tartar, use 1 tsp baking powder and subtract 1/4 tsp baking soda.

  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F.
  2. Mix dry ingredients and wet ingredients in separate bowls (mix dry ingredients very thouroughly!).
  3. Pour batter into greased or lined muffin tins (should make 12 muffins).
  4. Bake 23-25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  5. Serve with almond butter!
