Based on the number of muffin recipes I have on the blog I clearly love a good muffin for a healthy snack or a quick on the go breakfast. Since I’m not eating dairy right now this version is perfect. These muffins are loaded with ripe, sweet bananas with a double dose of coconut; coconut oil and sweetened flaked coconut. Coconut oil is a healthy and versatile culinary oil with a natural coconut flavor and aroma. It has many health benefits and its one of the few foods that can be classified as a “superfood.”

These Coconut-Banana Muffins may not look like the fluffiest of muffins but they are incredibly moist and dense with the  perfect amount of sweetness thanks to the ultra ripe bananas and honey.

I  like to slather my muffin with peanut butter before eating it  because really there us no better combination than peanut butter and banana.
