  1. Hi Diane! I made these muffins last night using Almond Meal. They turned out pretty yummy, but I think I will add some more to the next batch: banana, coconut, etc. BTW Where can I find coconut flour?

  2. Hi Diane, Oh, cool – you're connected with Lisa, too? Nice.

    Hey Lisa, you can get Coconut Flour at a health food store. I just got mine at Real Foods on Polk. I bet you have something similar in SoCal?

    I made these today and added cinnamin, banana, nutmeg. Used 2 eggs instead of three, and added a tablespoon of chocolate chia goodness. The chia seeds have a binding quality similar to eggs, so should turn out well. And then topped them with raw cacao nibs! Yum.

    Thanks for the inspiration!

  3. @Chloe- I have been working on a gluten free banana bread recipe using coconut and almond flour. I'll post that recipe when it's a bit more honed. Let me know how yours come out. I have learned that the key to coconut flour recipes, however, is keeping the egg content high. The four absorbs a lot of liquid and needs the eggs for texture/fluffiness. I'm curious if the seeds do it…I know soaked flax meal can work as well.

  4. These are airy and light textured. I added some dried rosemary and sea salt. I used some baking soda and about 1 tbs organic apple cider vinegar because I can't have all the baking powders I have found. I used yogurt and water for the milk! I'd give you five stars over on that site where I am posting my recipes. I'd like to post yours as well giving you the credit with my modifications. Thanks for the recipe.

  5. Diane,
    Thanks for this recipe! I made them the other day and added a small dollup of apple juice sweetened organic jam in the middle of the muffin. It really made them great. My youngest son, 2, loved them but my picky 3 year old threw it on the floor after one bite and said, "That's not a muffin". But he does that with just about everything so nothing against these muffins.

    I will also post a picture on my blog with a link to your recipe. I think you will like the picture.
    Thanks again and have a great day!

  6. Please clarify this recipe for me. Recipe states 12 servings but directions tell you to grease 6 muffin cups? Also, ingredient list calls for 1/2 cup coconut milk but directions do not mention when to add it. I left it out and my batter was still not thick as mentioned in the recipe. Clearly the milk was necessary as I found out after making these muffins without it.

    Thanks for clarifying these things.
    J-

  7. I think someone edited this recipe (since I see a reference to “three eggs”, and 6 or 12 muffins), and did it badly. So now I’m sitting with a bowl of what looks like pancake batter, and trying to figure out how to fix it. NOT COOL. 🙁

    1. Where do you see three eggs? It should make either 6 LARGE or 12 moderate sized muffins, I fixed that. You could have just made pancakes I guess… 😉

      1. In the comments, someone says “I used 2 eggs instead of 3″…but the recipe calls for *6*, so..not sure what’s up with that. I’m sure it would’ve made great pancakes, instead I doubled the dry ingredients, turned out okay in the end. Did you maybe use 6 SMALL eggs? That would make a big difference in moisture. Or possibly you used a thicker coconut milk?

        1. I made these last night and had the same problem – with 6 eggs the batter was liquid. I baked them anyways, but they were a disaster, they collapsed like souffles as soon as I took them out of the oven. Might try it again with just 3 eggs if someone can confirm that the recipe will work!

  8. OH! YEA! I can’t wait to try these and ALL the variations! 😀 I wonder if they would freeze well? Thanks so much, Diane!

  10. I didn’t add the coconut milk..lol I put it in the oven and go to clean up and there sitting lonely was the coconut milk.. The recipe didn’t tell me to add it so I forgot about it… dang it! lol

  12. Hey Diane,

    I’m not sure if you’re still moderating this recipe because it’s so old but I wanted to post my feedback in case it might be helpful. It’s in the oven now so I’ll report back in 30 minutes but…I mixed all the ingredients as directed. I noticed that there is no coconut milk in the instructions even though it’s in the ingredient list (another commenter noted this but I didn’t see a response regarding it). With that combined with the 6 eggs and the coconut oil this batter was completely watery, not thick at all. I added another 1/2 cup of coconut flour and it still wasn’t at all thick, was more like pancake batter (but very thin pancake batter). So, I added another half cup of flour. Eeeesh. I hope this works…I wonder if coconut flour can get *less* absorbent over time or something?

    1. I have an updated recipe for this coming out soon in the book and I”ll update and repost it here as well – sorry about this… I’m not the best baker but I try!

      1. Hey! No worries at all. I know coconut flour is so iffy sometimes. Just to report back, I tripled the coconut flour and it turned out very dense and spongy. Still tasted great, and I personally had no issues with the texture but others might not be looking for it. I think it’d be a great base for a french toast or topped with berries and heavy cream. Anyway, hope it helps the next person!

  13. Just made these.. I added one small to medium onion and roughly 3/4 cup of chopped bacon.. I fried off the onion and bacon in a teaspoon of coconut oil and added it at the end after mixing in the coconut flour. I did not omit the coconut milk. I mixed the egg, coconut oil, and coconut milk together then added the coconut flour and the baking powder. Mixed it thorougly then added the onion, bacon mixture and mixed once again.. I used silicone muffin pan and got 12 muffins.. I only baked them for 20 mins at 180° Celcius.. Came out delish!!

  16. Full fat coconut milk from the can, or just unsweetened coconut (or almond) milk from the carton? Rainy Sunday here in PA and hitting the kitchen for some recipe-making and testing 🙂

  17. I made this as a mug muffin and it came out delicious. Divided the recipe by 6. Mixed all ingredients in mug and put in the microwave for 1.5 to 2 min. Opted for the savory version with a little extra salt. Just thought I’ld share for anyone who needs a quick snack. I will definitely make the actual recipe one day.
