Ingredients

  • 1 cup (260g) very ripe bananas (~2 bananas)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup (108g) melted and cooled coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup (185g) honey
  • 1/4 cup (53g) honey vanilla Greek yogurt (I recommend Greek God's yogurt)
  • 1 and 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 and 3/4 cup (225g) white all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • Optional: 1/2 cup nuts or 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips

Instructions

  • PREP: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Spray all 12 cavities of a muffin tin with cooking spray and lightly flour. Shake out any excess flour and set aside.
  • WET INGREDIENTS: Mash 2 very ripe bananas to get 1 level cup of mashed banana (See Note 1). Mash well to get rid of any/all chunks. Add to a large bowl. Add in the large egg, 1/2 cup melted and cooled coconut oil, 1/2 cup honey, 1/4 cup Greek yogurt, and 1 and 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract. Whisk until combined and smooth.
  • DRY INGREDIENTS: In a separate bowl add the 1 teaspoon baking soda, 1 teaspoon baking powder, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, and 1/2 teaspoon sea salt to a large bowl. Add in the 1 and 3/4 cup flour (spoon flour into the measuring cup and level the top) and optional 1/2 cup nuts or miniature chocolate chips. Stir until combined. Add wet into dry ingredients. Mix until just combined. Do not-over mix; this will cause deflated or dense muffins.
  • BAKE: Divide the batter evenly between the 12 muffin cups. Each muffin cup should be pretty much filled to the top and all the batter should be used. Bake for 15-18 minutes or until a toothpick when inserted into the center comes out dry or with a few moist crumbs. Remove and allow to cool for 5 minutes before removing the muffins from the pan and transferring to a cooling rack.

Notes

Note 1: To make sure the banana is mashed really well and you don't end up with big chunks in your  muffins, mash the ripe bananas with a hand or stand mixer. To do this, peel the bananas, break them in large chunks, and beat them with the mixer until well mashed.
