I’ve mentioned before that I adore Dreena Burton and her book, Let Them Eat Vegan. Lately I’ve been making a lot of dinner recipes from the book, but had a windfall of a couple dozen extra ripe bananas from work that needed to be used up. I knew that I could count on Dreena to have some great banana based recipes.
I chose her coconut banana muffins but chose to make mine coconut banana mini muffins, because, well, bite sized food is more fun! Plus, I feel less guilty eating 3 or 4 mini muffins.
Each time I walked by these adorable coconut banana mini muffins I grabbed one and popped in my mouth. One bite of absolute deliciousness. These would be great for breakfast, as a snack and packed into lunches. Adding a bit of Earth Balance or Coconut Butter makes them even more incredible.
The recipe makes about a dozen muffins and 2 dozen mini muffins. I decided to add sprinkles to one dozen of my coconut banana mini muffins for the kids because anything with sprinkles is always more fun to eat, just like bite-sized food! Double fun right here.
If you like bananas and shredded coconut, I’m confident you’ll fall in love with the sweet, bright flavor and contrasting textures in these comforting little treats. I know that my family certainly did!
Look at all those cute little coconut banana mini muffins!
What’s your favorite kind of muffin? Do you prefer mini muffins, regular sized muffins, or are the jumbo muffins more your style?
