Gluten-free Banana Chocolate Coconut Muffins

Sometimes you just need a twist on a classic, particularly when you have a few bananas to use up and kids who need a quick and appetizing breakfast to start a long school day. Looking for a version of a banana chocolate muffin, I found a recipe that met my requirements.

Prep time


Cooking time




  • 3 large 3 Eggs

  • 213 g 213 Brown sugar – 1 cup

  • 250 g 250 Vegetable oil – 1 1/4 cups

  • 2 tsps 2 Vanilla extract

  • 468 g 468 Simona’s Flour Mix – 3 cups

  • 1 tsp 1 Baking soda

  • 1 tsp 1 Salt

  • 3 medium 3 Bananas, ripe – peeled and cut into chunks (about 1 pound)

  • 125 g 125 Vanilla yogurt, 2% – I used Siggi’s

  • 2 Tbsps 2 Glycerin

  • 25 g 25 Unsweetened coconut – 1/2 cup

  • 240 g 240 Chocolate Chips or chunks – 1 1/4 cups


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). Spray two 12-cup standard muffin pans with cooking spray or line them with baking cups.
  • In a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the eggs, sugar, oil, and vanilla on high speed until really well combined, about 2 minutes.
  • Reduce the speed to low, add the flour, baking soda, and 1/2 teaspoon salt, and beat again until really well combined, about 2 minutes.
  • Increase the speed to medium, add the bananas, coconut, glycerin, and yogurt, and beat for 1 minute. Reduce the speed to low, add the chocolate chunks or chips and mix until well combined.
  • Divide the batter among the prepared muffin cups, filling each to 3/4 full. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out without any crumbs or wet batter clinging to it, 20 to 25 minutes.
  • Turn the muffins out onto a wire rack and let cool for at least 10 minutes. They will keep in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 1 week.
