This is my first ever sweet recipe invention and it worked!

As you all know, I love to bake and as the whole world knows, if you eat too many baked goods you get fat.

So I thought I go for something that was a bit healthier.  I’m trying to learn what’s good and bad for you.  I mean apart from the obvious, chocolate, soft drink etc.  But I’m finding it trickier to know if the things that we think are good for you are or not…

So for the moment I’m sticking with what I know, there’s no added sugar in this recipe.  It’s still sweet enough, I found, because of the bananas.

So I decided to invent a muffin.

2 mashed bananas

1 cup chopped walnuts

3/4 coconut flour

1 cup SRF

2 eggs

1/4 cup olive oil

1/3 cup desiccated coconut

The cream from a tin of coconut cream (I used the coconut water in a smoothie)

I mixed it all together until well combined and spooned it into a muffin tin.

Would love to know what you think.

Have you ever invented a muffin?  What’s your favourite miffin flavour combination?

    1. Thanks the plate is from my Mama, she cleaned out all her cupboards and passed on her tea crockery to me. Would love to know how you go if you do try it.

  1. I’m also trying to use less sugar and the only way I have found so far is to use the natural sweetness of fruit. I will try these in the weekend if I can find coconut flour. Otherwise, hopefully rice flour might work too.

    1. I’m sure rice flour will work, or even just use regular flour. I stocked up my coconut flour stores yesterday from the local health food shop. Would love to know how you go!

      1. I actually used a self-raising gluten-free flour for the coconut flour and it worked. I thought they wouldn’t be sweet enough but I was pleasantly surprised. I added cranberries and chocolate instead of the walnuts. i will be posting about them tomorrow. Thanks for the recipe.

    1. Thanks. They were pretty delicious. In fact I’ve got some coconut milk sitting open in the fridge, so might have to make something new.

  2. Well done! I’ve not invented a baked good recipe. I find with cooking I’m more adventurous and invent lots of things, with baking not so much! If a dish starts going south there’s always so much you can do to salvage it, if baking begins to go south…well, I’m not able to salvage that!

    1. I’ve always been pretty hesitant to invent baked goods for the same reason, but found now that I know the consistencies that things should be it’s easy. I think cake and biscuits would be harder.
