Coconut Banana Graham Muffins (vegan + refined sugar free)

Good morning, friends.

Long time no see, eh. I’m still stuck in a whirlwind, but I’m popping in for two seconds to share this recipe with you…then back to the whirlwind. I had a snow day last Thursday, and I took advantage of the cozy atmosphere and extra time to whip up a batch of muffiiiins.

IMG_0956.JPGThey’re slightly sweet, dense, and filling. My dad described them as “comforty and warm.”  That says it all.

IMG_0957.JPGAlong with being “comforty and warm,” they are also uber nutritious and filled with whole grains and fiber.

I would suggest a topping of nut butter and coconut oil, if may I be so bold. The creamy texture of the butter pairs delightfully with the robust nuttiness of the oats and flax.

Did you or did you not just read that in a British accent…be honest.

  1. Graham flour? Ummm yes please! These muffins sound incredible! While I typically make my muffins without any kind of topping I must say that my favorites always have some sort of struessel or crumble on top. I just love the added texture!

  3. My boss makes these blueberry crisp muffins with a coating of raw brown sugar that I absolutely love! You really can’t put anything on them or it takes away from the muffin experience =P
