A twist on my classic Pumpkin Cranberry Muffins, this recipe adds a powerful veggie-punch and can easily be served for breakfast or to kids without worry since it uses mashed banana and NO SWEETENERS.

  • 6 eggs, beaten
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin puree (can be canned or fresh, if fresh, cook, cook, and strain excess water from your pumpkin before using it in this recipe)
  • 1/2 cup butter, clarified butter/ghee, or coconut oil, melted
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 mashed banana
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • pinch of sea salt 
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tbsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 3 cups shredded carrots (app. 4 large carrots)
  • optional: 1/4 cup raisins or dried cranberries


Preheat oven to 350ºF.

Whisk the eggs, pumpkin, butter or coconut oil, pure vanilla extract, and banana together in a large mixing bowl. Sift in the coconut flour, sea salt, baking soda, and pumpkin pie spice and stir until well-combined. Gently fold in the carrots and optional raisins or cranberries.

In a muffin tin, scoop 1/4 cup of the batter into each lined muffin cup (natural parchment muffin papers work best for lining whereas standard papers may easily stick!).

Bake for 35-40 minutes.


Change it up!

  • Add 1/2 cup chopped walnuts for crunch.
  • If you don't have carrots, try adding shredded zucchini or sweet potato.
