  • 2 1/2 cups spelt flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/3 cup desiccated coconut
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 125 gms melted butter slightly cooled
  • 1 egg
  • 1.5 cups milk I ran out of milk so used natural yoghurt this time and it was yum
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 2 medium ripe bananas mashed
  • 1/2 cup berry of your choice we like raspberries and blueberries, add a full cup if adding to the whole mixture


  • Preheat oven to 180 degrees and grease and line a 12 hole muffin tin
  • In a large bowl sift spelt flour, baking powder and salt. Add coconut sugar, desiccated coconut and cinnamon and mix well
  • In another bowl add butter, egg, milk and vanilla essence and stir well
  • Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients then add banana and stir until mixed through but make sure not to over stir (if mixture appears a little dry you can always add another egg or a bit more milk)
  • Spoon the banana mixture into half the muffin holes, filling the hole to ¾ full
  • Then add your preferred berry to the remaining mixture and gently stir through and spoon the mixture into the remaining holes
  • Sprinkle muffins with desiccated coconut
  • Bake in oven for 20-25mins or until lightly golden brown
