  • 4 ripe bananas
  • honey
  • cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup (60g) wheat flour
  • 3/4 cup (75g) oat flour
  • 1/2 cup (65g) all purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup (85g) lightly packed dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup (125ml) coconut milk (canned)
  • 1/2 cup (125ml) oil – vegetable, canola or melted coconut are fine
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • dark chocolate chips
  • unsweetened coconut flakes



  1. Preheat your oven to 400 F (205 C)
  2. Line a baking tray with parchment paper. Peel your bananas and lay them out on the tray. Drizzle each one with a zigzag of honey and then sprinkle with cinnamon. Bake for 20-25 mins until the tops become golden brown. Let them cool for about 5 minutes then scoop them into a bowl (I scrape the golden honey bits off the paper in as well). Once cool, mash them up.
  3. Reduce oven temp to 350 F (175 C)


  1. Put 12 cupcake liners into muffin pans.
  2. Whisk dry ingredients together.
  3. In a separate large bowl combine the eggs and sugar and mix until smooth.
  4. Add coconut milk and oil and mix again.
  5. Stir in the vanilla and bananas.
  6. Gently fold in your dry ingredients until just combined. This batter is moist but very thick.
  7. Put about 1/4 cup of batter into each liner and sprinkle liberally with chocolate chips and coconut flakes.
  8. Bake for 20-25 minutes until tester comes out clean.
  9. Eat warm with a cup of tea!

If you don’t have oat flour, pulse old-fashioned oats in the blender to make your own.
