Vegan Double Coconut, wholemeal spelt & banana muffins!

Spelt has 30% more protein than whole meal flour. So, it is good for you! These breakfast muffins contain wholemeal spelt flour, baking powder, 3 very ripe bananas, coconut milk, shredded unsweetened coconut, canola oil, cane sugar, cinnamon & vanilla extract. These are yummy moist muffins.

When I eat one, I am not hungry for 3 + 1/2 hours! So these vegan breakfast muffins are an ideal tasty wholesome breakfast! :)

Recipe: For 13 + 1/2 large muffins


180 gr wholemeal spelt flour

3 large very ripe bananas, peeled & finely mashed with a fork

2 teaspoons of ground cinnamon

2 teaspoons of baking powder

1 teaspoon of vanilla extract ( I use home-made vanilla extract )

80 ml of canola oil

240 ml of coconut milk

150 gr of shredded unsweetened coconut

100 gr of raw, cane sugar


1. Preheat the oven to 190°C ( 374 F) for about 10 minutes.

2. Take a large bowl & add the spelt flour, cinnamon, baking powder. Mix well.

3. In another bowl add mashed up bananas, coconut milk, canola oil, vanilla & sugar. Mix well with a wooden spoon.

4. Add to bowl with dry ingredients. Mix until just joined.

5. Fold in the shredded unsweetened coconut. I use flower pattern silicon baking mats, so I don’t have to grease my filling holes. Fill for 3/4 & place onto a baking sheet in the center of the oven & bake for about 20 minutes until golden & cooked trough. Test with a sewing pin. Take out of oven & place silicon mats on a wire rack to cool down a bit. Leave the muffins inside the silicon mats for about 5 minutes, then take them out & turn them over so that the top of your muffin looks as a flower pattern. Place them on a wire rack to cool down completely. The flower muffins will shine a bit on top. That is typical for silicon baking.

6. When cool, store in a cookie box.

    Glad to see the ingredient spelt flour, it is also a very common ingredient in Europe. I keep seeing vegan pastries and goods made with spelt flour ;) and I wish U.S. would incorporate more of that! I would eat 2 muffins for brunch, they look delicious and filling!

    For one who prides themselves on healthy eating knowledge and eating healthy, I have to hold my hands up and admit I had never heard for Spelt…The shame…the shame… :P

    What a pretty pattern on your muffins! I love spelt flour too and always buy spelt bread and pasta – so much better for you. The combination of banana with coconut would be wonderful xx

  12. You know I love these!

  13. Norma Chang says:

    Love that you have quite a bit of banana in the muffin, that surely should make it very moist and full of banana flavor.

  14. These look good Sophie!!! :)
