Super Bowl Sweet........CoCoNaNa Bread!

Its been awhile since I have posted....actually, its been awhile since I have had a day to sit and be inspired to get into my kitchen,combined with the time to share a recipe with my friends. I was on pinterest this morning getting my drug fix. Okay, seriously, I think there are subliminal messages encrypted into that site, as almost every one I know is addicted. I was looking for a treat to make to enjoy during the game tonight. Already making a great fire side stew with bone broth---But, having a bit of a sweet tooth. So, I stumbled on this delicious recipe from Kitchen Runway-However, it called for wheat flour and sugar (no-no's for me and my family) so, I did some research and found some great adaptations that are grain free from the Tropical Traditions site. I can't wait to let you know how yummy this is. I have some fresh raw milk that I picked up yesterday---ahhhh, sweet cake and cold glass of RAW full fat milk. Life is GOOD!

So whats cookin in your kitchen.....?

Banana Coconut Flour Muffins:

1 cup organic coconut flour

6 eggs
2 ripe bananas (mashed)

2 Tbsp. melted butter

2 Tbsp. virgin coconut oil

2 Tbsp. milk

6 Tbsp. honey

1 tsp. aluminum free baking powder

1/2 tsp. vanilla

1/8 tsp. Himalayan salt


Pre-heat oven at 350 F degrees.

Mix coconut flour and baking powder (put it in separate bowl.) In a mixing bowl, beat eggs gradually, and then add milk, honey, coconut oil, butter, vanilla and salt. Continue mixing. Then add the coconut flour with baking powder and mashed bananas. Blend well. Grease 12 muffin cups with coconut oil. Fill greased muffin cups with the batter. (this works great as a loaf as pictured above)

Bake at 350 degrees F for 20 minutes.

Yield: 12 muffins

*additions: blueberries, cinnamon/apples and chocolate chips.....nuts, etc!


  1. I've never cooked grain free. how will this texture compare to grain type muffins. How will I know they are done.

  2. Hello Lisa, it is very similar to any baked grain product.....the old butter knife test. Insert a clean knife, if the knife pulls out clean, remove bread from oven to cool. The bread takes anywhere from 20-30 minutes to bake (determined by the size of your loaf pan)! Enjoy :-)
