Units Scale

For the bread:

  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil (or butter), melted
  • 1 tbsp applesauce
  • 1 cup mashed, overripe bananas
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup almond meal
  • 1 cup oat flour
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats

  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon

Topping:

  • 1/2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp shredded unsweetened coconut

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Spray a muffin tin liberally with cooking spray.
  2. Toast coconut by microwaving it on a plate for 1 1/2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds to prevent burning.
  3. In a large bowl, stir together maple syrup, eggs, melted coconut oil, banana and vanilla.
  4. Add in dry ingredients (including toasted coconut) and stir until just combined.
  5. Pour batter into muffin tins and top with a sprinkling of brown sugar and coconut. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until a fork comes out clean.
