Servings: 6 muffins


  • 3 overripe bananas
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp ground flaxseed
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/3 cup soya milk
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 cups plain flour
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • pinch of salt


  • Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius, gas mark 4. Line a muffin tin with cupcake papers and set aside.
  • In a small bowl, combine the flaxseed with 1/3 cup water. Stir and let it stand for around 5 minutes or until thickened.
  • In a bowl, mash the bananas using a fork, then add in all the remaining ingredients leaving the flour till last. Once combined, spoon the mixture into the muffin cases – use an ice cream scoop if you have one, to get nice even muffins.
  • At this point (this is optional) you can top each muffin with some nuts, chocolate chips or some oats for more flavour. 
  • Bake in the middle of the oven for around 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted the centre of each muffin comes out clean. Let cool completely on a wire rack before serving. Enjoy!
