Coconut Banana Bread Muffins

These muffins are amazing!  You'll want to dive into the batter!!

1 cup white cornmeal
1/2 cup spelt flour
1/2 cup brown rice flour * If you don't have this, just sub spelt or even whole wheat flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1/4 cup flaxseed meal
1 scoop chia seeds (I used the scoop that comes with the seeds - approx. 2 tbsp.)
1 cup plain soy milk (or any non-dairy milk)
1/2 cup raw agave nectar
1/4 cup oil (I used canola)
2 bananas (1 mashed, 1 cut into chunks)
1/4 cup applesauce
1/4 cup shredded coconut
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1 tbsp. vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  In a large bowl combine dry ingredients (including coconut and walnuts).  Mix well.  Next - add in rest of ingredients.  This is a one bowl recipe!  :)  Mix until well combined; spray a muffin tin with non-stick spray and fill to top.  Bake for approximately 22 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.  These muffins are very moist so your toothpick may not be 100% clean, so you can just use your best judgement.  These muffins get a nice golden brown color and are pretty dense.  I know you will enjoy these! :)


  1. Marci,

    You have used many great and unique ingredients in this recipe! which is so neat, I do not think I have seen chia seeds ever, where do you buy these? I love coconut and bananas so this is on my now do-make list recipe. thanks.

  2. Hi Pam!

    You can buy chia seeds in any health/natural food store. I love them. :)

    I hope you enjoy these muffins when you make them!
