Gluten free Coconut and banana muffins
These Gluten free Coconut and banana muffins are the perfect way to start the day. You can also freeze these.
A few weeks ago, I decided to start baking with other flours rather than just using my usual whole wheat pastry flour. I started with coconut flour and made these gluten free coconut and banana muffins. In the past I have used oat, buckwheat and barley as well as almond flour. However, I really wanted to start incorporating free wheat flours, like the coconut flour counterpart.
The use of these flours, not only makes healthy eating easier, but it makes baking much more versatile and attractive. After all, having gluten free bake goods can only be possible using other flours besides whole wheat :-)
I can’t tell you how happy I am that I have actually started using coconut flour. These gluten free coconut banana muffins are the bomb.
What I have found fascinating about this type of flour is that very little of it is needed while baking. It soaks up a great deal of liquid, which I find this to be great because coconut flour is rather expensive.
After making these gluten free Coconut and banana muffins I though about maybe using apple sauce instead of bananas. Next time I will and see what happens.
Anyhow, I will be coming with many more other variations of baking goods using coconut flour, so I hope you stay tuned. I hope you get to try and make these. If you do, please report back :-)
You know, or some of you know, that I am on the works of actually writing a healthy cooking ebook with some of my favorite recipes from the blog as well as some new ones.
I would like for you to tell me what it is that you would like to see included in the healthy cooking ebook.
So far, in the book, I will thoroughly explain my take on what healthy eating really means and I am going to include different sections in the cooking book with recipes that can appeal to a wide variety of an audience such sections on 30 minutes meals, smoothies, breakfast, dessert, gluten free etc. I am also including a section on carbohydrate counting for those that needed but, most of all, I need to know what it is that you want!!
So please go on and give me a comment on it :-) Anything and everything would be considered!!
These are pictures of the muffins before and after baking. It took about 24 minutes to bake them!!
We had these for breakfast :-) with a huge glass of milk. They were awesome!!
