Peanut Butter Coconut Banana Muffins {recipe}


I’ve been on a muffin-baking kick lately.  With just two of us in this house though, we don’t eat through a whole pan of muffins all that quickly, so freezing half is perfect for having more for later without letting anything go bad.  And I hate letting any food go bad, which was the exact inspiration for making these muffins – brown bananas that needed to be used up!

These are awesome from the freezer (after defrosting on the counter for a bit).
They’re dense and sweet and creamy and delicious.
Jesse and I both love ’em!

Peanut Butter Coconut Banana Muffins recipe 2


  • 1/2 cup natural peanut butter, melted
  • 3 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1/2 cup milk of choice (I used unsweetened almond milk)
  • 2 tablespoons raw honey, melted if necessary
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons ground flaxseed
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened coconut shreds


1.  Preheat the oven to 350*F and either add liners or grease your muffin pan.

2.  Combine all of the wet ingredients (peanut butter – honey) in a large mixing bowl.

3.  Add the dry ingredients (flour – coconut shreds) to the bowl and mix until everything is combined.

4.  Scoop the mixture into the muffin liners.

5.  Bake for about 30 minutes, or until muffins begin to brown on top and are slightly firm to the touch.

  1. Yum! These look great Danica :) I have been looking for healthy muffin recipes and have found a few through bloggers but so often they are just a bit too much for a ‘healthy’ breakfast! Thanks for sharing!! I will definitely be trying these out.

  2. What can you substitute for flaxseed? I know the flaxseed and banana work to replace eggs…would ground chia seeds work for the flaxseed?

    • I’m less and less interested in eating grains these days (I just don’t feel as good with them), so anytime I need a flour for baking I love using coconut flour!

  4. I’m really enjoying muffins these days and these sound delicious! Plus, peanut butter and banana is always a yummy combo!

    • You should definitely try baking with coconut flour! I’m currently working on a (shareable) brownie recipe that uses it – I’m not complaining about the testing-it-out process :)

  6. Oh my these look tasty – I have a big thing of coconut flour I need to get going on using and we always have the other ingredients…now if it would only cool down so I didn’t feel so guilty making these. Either way – printing this recipe now for next week ;)

  9. these look awesome, Danica! I have mostly everything except for the flax seeds. I wonder if I could replace those with chia seeds?

  10. These sound (and look!) so yummy! I’m a total texture person and the density of these look wonderful!

    • The texture of these is definitely unique! Not like a “traditional muffin” as in airy, but these are dense, moist, and chewy – really good, just different :)

  11. PB and bananas is definitely one of the best combinations out there, so I love that you added peanut butter to the more traditional banana muffin. These sound tasty!
