There is just so much to love about these babies;

Not only do they taste all kinds of amazing, but they are all natural, made with no refined flours or sugars using just a handful of ingredients that I bet you have on hand already.

They also happen to be gluten free, grain free and paleo friendly and they could not be easier to make.

Simply throw your ingredients into your blender or food processor and let it do the work for you.

All you have to do once your batter is all blended (apart from try not to drink it straight up from the blender because it smells all kinds of incredible!) is stir through those sweet and juicy pineapple pieces, spoon that subtly sweet, perfectly spiced, heavenly banana batter into your  muffin tray, then bake those bad boys for 10-12 minutes and you’re done baby!

Hummingbird Muffins with Coconut Yogurt Frosting – {Low Carb, GlutenFree & Paleo Friendly}
Makes approx 10 – All natural, quick and easy, subtly sweet, melt in your mouth, banana infused muffins

Ingredients –

3 eggs

2 manky over-ripe bananas

1/2 cup pineapple, finely chopped (fresh or canned will work)

1 Tablespoon of vanilla extract

1 Tablespoon maple syrup

1 Tablespoon of coconut oil, melted and cooled

1 Tablespoon of warm water

1/4 cup coconut flour

1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon of baking soda

A pinch of salt

Optional but recommended for serving –

1/4 cup Coconut Yogurt

Dried pineapple

Coconut chips

Method –

1 – Preheat oven to 175’C (350’F) – Line a muffin tray with paper cases and set aside.

2 – Place eggs, banana, vanilla, maple syrup, coconut oil and water into your food processor or blender and process until well combined.

3 – Add your coconut flour, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda and salt and process again until well combine.

4 – Add your chopped pineapple and stir to combine.

5 – Spoon the batter into your prepared muffin tray and bake for 10-12 minutes. When they are ready the tops will be deliciously golden and should be firm to the touch yet spring back a little when lightly pressed, a tooth pick should come out clean or have just a few crumbs attached when inserted into the center.

6 – Allow to cool for 5 minutes in the muffin tray, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely – That is if you can resist inhaling the entire batch as you transfer each delicious little muffin from muffin tray to cooling rack that is. Note – this will be an extremely difficult task. You have been warned.

To serve –

Top with coconut yogurt, dried pineapple and coconut chips if desired – yum!

Enjoy xoxo

    What a bummer– these were a total failure for me! They definitely didn’t cook in 10 minutes– I gave them all the way up to 30 minutes and they were still an eggy, giant mess in the middle. I feel like they might have needed more coconut flour? I’m actually going to have to throw them all out. Not trying to be a negative nancy at all– just wanted to warn anyone else that checks the comments before making the recipe that it isn’t fail proof!

      Oh Stephanie I am sorry to hear this recipe didn’t work for you, I’ve made these muffins quite a few times and haven’t had any trouble. I wonder what the issue might have been?!

      Thanks for the feedback, here’s hoping for better luck next time xo
