Banana Coconut Black & White Choco Chips Muffins

Muffins are always a hit with my family…warm, fresh from the oven muffins. It’s one of my favorite thing to bake because it’s quick and easy to make (I hope you don’t get tired of hearing that from me).

I have some bananas that are past their ripeness which is the best for baking (I actually kept some bananas away from the hands of my little monkeys lol so I could have something to use for baking) I have some dessicated coconuts too, one of my fave baking ingredients so I decided to make banana coconut muffins, I actually don’t have a recipe for it but I was sure there are in the net so I did some searching but could not find exactly what I was looking for..

Wait, I forgot to tell you, I was really supposed to make banana cookies ( a healthy and also quick recipe) then I realized I ran out of oats, rolled or instant..but I have already mixed 1/4 cup coconut oil and bananas- so then I decided to just make muffins out of it..yeah that’s pretty much how it happened and this recipe came about.

This recipe is inspired by this one. I tweaked it and incorporate what I knew about making muffins. I was just glad it turned out delicious..very delicious actually, my kids say so and you know kids always tell the truth (most of the time) 😉 .

These muffins are moist may add more or less chocolates depending on how you love chocolates, just reduce the sugar a bit because over-ripe bananas are already sweet, too much chocolates will make the muffins cloyingly sweet, you wouldn’t want that.

Muffins are easy , anyone can do it,  for those who are new to baking, a reminder:  DO NOT OVER MIX the batter..please 🙂

Enjoy these muffins with a hot cup of tea or coffee with your love ones for an afternoon snack or a weekend late-night movie watching at home! 🙂


3 large bananas, mashed ( about 1 1/4 cups)
1/4 cup coconut oil
3/4 cup coconut milk
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup sugar
1 cup dessicated coconut
1/2 cup mini white chocolate chips
1/2 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips

Here’s How:
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

In a large bowl, combine mashed bananas, eggs, oil, coconut milk and vanilla, mix well. In a separate bowl, sift together flour, salt and baking powder; add dessicated coconut, mix to combine then add to the banana mixture, mix just until combine..DO NOT overmix or your muffins will get tough. Spoon into well-greased muffin pans or lined muffin pans. Bake for about 20-25 minutes; do not overbake, muffins should be soft inside and the top, crusty. I made about adozen and a half muffin with this batter using regular muffin pans.

    These muffins look out of control delicious! My girls love banana bread and I think that this might taste a little like banana bread. Muffins are always a big hit with my little ones as well, especially because they make a good snack and my oldest daughter can take them with her to school!
