GFCF Banana Coconut Muffins

Here it is, the long-awaited recipe that I made up off the cuff.  Enjoy!
(It is still somewhat a work in progress. If you have any ideas for improvements, let me know!)

And my breakfast-picky kids LOVED them...

GFCF Banana Coconut Muffins
Makes 12-18

2 cups GF all-purpose flour (I used Giusto's)
1 Tbsp baking soda
1 Tbsp baking powder
1/2 cup flaked coconut
2/3 cup brown sugar

3 eggs, lihgtly beaten
1 tsp GF vanilla
1 cup coconut milk

2-3 ripe bananas, mashed

Preheat oven to 350* F.  Prepare muffin tin by greasing lightly.

In large bowl, mix first 5 ingredients together.  In another bowl, combine next 3 ingredients.  Add wet ingredients and bananas to dry mixture, and stir until combined (can still be lumpy).  Spoon batter into muffin tin evenly.

Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until tops are browned, and toothpick comes out clean.

Top with powdered or coarse sugar, and serve. Delicious warm or cool.


That's right. That's it. Here are some side notes:

*Not all GF all-purpose flours are created equal.  You may need to adjust the recipe to the one you use.  Judge it based on the batter result: You want it a medium thickness, so that it holds its shape for just a few seconds when you move it around.
*The riper your bananas, the sweeter and more banana-flavored they are. Adjust recipe accordingly, to your tastes.
*I find coconut milk adds more flavor to the recipe, but I have also used almond milk to good effect.

Now go try it, and let me know how it turns out for you!!!

I still can't believe I did this out of hand!! :D
