  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup coconut sugar
  • ¼ cup coconut oil softened
  • 3 ripe bananas mashed
  • cup vanilla greek yogurt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract


  • Preheat oven to 425F. Add coconut sugar and coconut oil to a stand mixer bowl or large bowl.  Mix until well incorporated.
  • Add in the eggs, one at a time until fully incorporated. Add in yogurt and vanilla extract to wet ingredients and mix well.
  • Add in mashed banana or other fruit puree and mix well.  
  • In a separate bowl, mix or sift together the flour, baking soda and salt. Add the dry ingredients to the bowl of wet ingredients in three parts, mixing slowly each time.
  • Fold in mix-ins of choice.
  • Line a muffin tin with silicone muffin liners and spray them with coconut oil spray.  Scoop the batter into the liners with a cookie scoop and place in the oven.
  • Bake muffins at 425F for 5 minutes.  Reduce heat to 350F and bake for an additional 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
