Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line muffin pans with muffin/cupcake liners. You can also lightly spray the pan if you don't have liners. In a small bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt. Stir and set aside. In a larger bowl, mix sugar and oil together then add mashed bananas. Note: I didn't want to dirty another bowl so I peeled each banana and squished them individually with my clean hands right into the bowl. This 'technique' makes for a chunkier banana consistency, which I like for a breakfast muffin. If you do not like that, mash the bananas in a separate bowl then add to the sugar/oil mixture.
  2. To your wet mix also add coconut milk and vanilla, stirring until everything is thoroughly combined. Add flour mixture to wet mixture and stir lightly, then add pecans and coconut. Stir until everything is just combined. Note: the batter will be fairly thick. Spoon batter into muffin tins about 3/4 full.
  3. Bake for 20-25 minutes until muffins are golden brown on top.

Very moist. My toddler loves them. Made a quarter batch in mini doughnut pan for kids. Also, left out the nuts because my son won't eat them, otherwise they'd be in there. Used soy milk and honey as substitutes, only because that's what I have on hand. Mini pans only took 10 minutes to bake golden.

Made it exactly as the recipe called for, with the exception of the coconut milk which I didn't have on hand. Substituted skim milk and it was fine. Very moist, not very sweet, lovely bit of crunch from the pecans and nice texture from the coconut. My family loves these, they are like excellent little banana breads in their own muffin paper lol. Next time I am going to try substituting coconut sugar 1:1. Definitely a favourite now. We don't mind seeing bananas get old now, and I keep a package of pecans and some coconut handy to whip up a batch any time.
