baking banana breakfast cacao cinnamon coconut dessert gluten free muffins recipes snacks sugar free sweet potato Feb 06, 2017

You wouldn't think it's possible..gluten free, sugar free, dairy free, moist, delicious muffins! Well here they are. With my 21 Day Detox starting next Monday I need to tick all of those boxes so I've kept them gluten free by using a combo of coconut and almond meal (with baking powder to help rise), and I have only used 2 mashed bananas as the sweetener. The sweet potato keeps them nice and moist and also adds a touch of sweetness and I added some protein powder which comes along with the gift box included in the detox program.

If you're a 90% dark chocolate fan, you will be in love, if you're not, throw in some blue or blackberries to cut through the bitterness of the cacao. If you're not detoxing, 1 tablespoon of maple syrup/raw honey could also be added. 

If you want to learn more about this 21 day detox business, get in quick because registration closes this Thursday!    

Makes 12


1 cup desiccated coconut
1 cup almond meal
2 teaspoons baking powder
pinch of salt
½ cup cacao powder
¼ cup natural protein powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
4 eggs
1/4 cup coconut oil, melted (or extra virgin olive oil)
2 ripe bananas, mashed
1 cup steamed sweet potato, mashed


Preheat the oven to 180⁰C and line a muffin tin with baking paper or muffin cases.

Combine the coconut, almond meal, baking powder, salt, cacao powder, protein powder and cinnamon in a large bowl. Beat the eggs and then add to the mixture with the coconut oil mashed banana and sweet potato, combining well.

Divide between muffin holes and bake for 25-30 minutes or until a skewer inserted comes out clean.
