Number of Servings: 9


    3/4 cup whole wheat pastry flour
    1/2 cup white whole wheat flour (or regular whole wheat flour)
    1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
    1/4 teaspoon table salt
    zest of 1/2 lemon, finely chopped
    1/2 cup virgin coconut oil, melted
    1 cup ripe banana, mashed
    1/4 cup honey
    1 large egg, preferably at room temperature
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    3/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut, divided
    1 tablespoon turbinado (raw) sugar


Easily doubled!


Preheat oven to 375F. Grease a muffin tin or line the tin with muffin liners (note that this recipe produces about 10 to 11 muffins).
In a medium bowl, whisk together the flours, baking powder, salt and lemon zest. Stir in 1/2 cup shredded coconut.
In a separate, medium bowl, whisk together the coconut oil, mashed banana, honey, egg and vanilla.*
Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until just combined.
Divide batter among prepared muffin cups, then sprinkle the muffin tops with the remaining 1/4 cup coconut (about 1 to 2 teaspoons each). Top with a very light sprinkle of raw sugar.
Bake for about 20 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Transfer muffins to a cooling rack and let them cool.
