  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 2 ripe bananas mashed
  • 3 tablespoon coconut oil melted
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar can substitute with brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup almond or coconut milk unsweetened
  • 1/2 cup walnuts chopped plus 2 tablespoon chopped walnuts for sprinkling on top of muffins


  • Preheat the oven to 350 F / 176 C. Place a little coconut oil in each muffin tin. You can also use muffin liners. I have found just a bit of coconut oil or vegetable oil rubbed in the muffin tin does the trick without making extra waste.
  • In a mixing bowl, add the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg together in a medium bowl. Give it a stir and set aside.
  • In another mixing bowl, mash the bananas. Then add in the melted coconut oil, coconut sugar, egg, vanilla extract, and plant based milk. Slowly add in the dry ingredients and stir until combined. Fold in the 1/2 cup of walnuts.
  • Transfer the batter to a muffin tin. Fill each muffin tin 3/4 of the way. Top the muffins with optional 2 tablespoons of walnuts. Bake for 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Let muffins cool.


If the bananas aren’t very ripe you can add in a tablespoon of sugar.
