Made with Let’s Do… Organic Banana Flour by No Eggs or Ham
Coconut Chocolate Breakfast Muffins
- 120 g (1 c) Let’s Do… Organic® Green Banana Flour
- 30 g (1/4 c + 2 tbsp) cocoa powder
- 1/4 c Let’s Do… Organic® Unsweetened Shredded Coconut
- 8 g (2 tsp) baking powder
- 1 g (1/4 tsp) salt
- 90 g (1/4 c +2 tbsp) Native Forest® Coconut Oil
- 72 g (1/4 c + 2 tbsp) erythritol
- 1 flax egg (1 tbsp flax meal + 2.5 tbsp water)
- 8 oz (1 c) Native Forest® Light Coconut Milk
- 3 oz (1/4 c + 2 tbsp) aquafaba from a can of Chickpeas
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 tsp liquid stevia extract
- Pre-heat oven to 350° F. Line muffin tin with liners or lightly coat with coconut oil non-stick spray. For tall-muffin liners, prepare 5-6 tins, for regular-sized liners, prepare 7-8 tins. Set aside.
- When the oven reaches its designated temperature, spread out shredded coconut onto a baking sheet and place in oven for 3-4 minutes or until golden brown. Remove & set aside.
- Sift the green banana flour, baking powder, salt, and cocoa powder into a medium mixing bowl. Set aside.
- In a large mixing bowl, whisk together flax eggs and melted butter until cohesive. Whisk in vanilla extract, erythritol, stevia, and coconut milk. Set aside.
- In the bowl of your stand-up mixer fitted with the whisk attachment or in a medium glass or plastic bowl with an electric hand whisk, beat the aquafaba on high until stiff peaks form; 6-8 minutes.
- Pour the dry ingredients on top of the wet ingredients and stir to combine with a wooden spoon. Stir in half of the aquafaba until no longer visible. Then, gently fold in the second half of aqauafaba, leaving a few white spots in-tact.
- Fill each muffin tin 4/5 of the way full with batter. Place in the center rack of your oven and bake until the edges are set but the middle is still slightly jiggly; a toothpick inserted into the middle should come out mostly clean.
- Note: Because we baked our muffins in tall muffin liners, we had to bake our muffins for 30 minutes, however, if you are baking in regular sized muffin tins, I would check them after 20 minutes.
- Allow muffins to cool in pan on a cooling rack for 10 minutes, then remove them from the pan and set directly on the rack to cool the rest of the way; at least 20 more minutes.
- Best when enjoyed same-day as baking, but they can be kept in an air-tight container at room temperature for up to two days.
