  • Preheat the oven to 350°F and line a muffin tin with baking cups. In a large bowl, mix the almond flour, baking soda, and salt.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk the bananas, egg, avocado oil, vanilla, honey, and lemon juice.
  • Using a rubber spatula, gently mix the dry and wet ingredients. Don't overmix.
  • Fold the walnuts and coconut flakes into the batter.
  • Spoon the batter into the prepared muffin tin, filling each cup 3/4 full. Optional - top your muffins with a chopped walnuts and sprinkle with cinnamon.
  • Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 22 minutes.
  • Set the pan on a wire rack to cool for about 15 minutes before serving.


*To measure the bananas, mash it with a fork first. It's fine if there a few large chunks left.
-- In place of the avocado oil, you can use melted coconut oil, butter, ghee, or palm shortening.
-- Coconut flakes is not the same as shredded coconut, the coconut pieces are cut into larger chunks and then dried. I added this to the recipe for texture, but it is optional.
