  • Total Time: 35 mins
  • Yield: 12-14 1x


  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 10 dates
  • 1½ cups mashed very overripe bananas (3 medium bananas)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup almond meal
  • 1 heaping cup rolled oats, ground into a flour in food processor
  • ½ cup rolled oats
  • ½ cup shredded unsweetened coconut, toasted
  • ¼ cup ground flaxseed
  • 1 ½ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp cinnamon
  • 1 cup chopped mango


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray a muffin tin with cooking spray or line with liners.
  2. Blend together applesauce and dates in a food processor until well mixed. Add bananas and vanilla and blend until smooth.
  3. Spread coconut out in an even layer on a plate. Toast in microwave at 20 second intervals, stirring after each one, until lightly browned. You could also do this in a pan over medium heat.
  4. In a large bowl, combine the dry ingredients (almond meal through cinnamon) until very well mixed.
  5. Pour wet ingredients (banana mixture) into dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Fold in mango chunks.
  6. Pour batter into greased muffin tin. Bake for about 22 to 25 minutes, or until a knife comes out clean.
  7. Cool in muffin tin for 5 minutes and then transfer to a cooling rack.
