XL Banana Nut Muffin

One thing I can absolutely look forward to is visiting a cozy coffee shop and buying a huge muffin that's still warm on the inside and slightly crunchy on top. Taking a bite out of that muffin, while I sip on my soy latte. Pure. Indulgence. 
By creating this muffin, I can enjoy this moment in the comfort of my own home and now you can too! 




  • ½ cup self raising flour
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • pinch salt
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 3 tbsps brown sugar
  • 1 Tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 flax egg 
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 4 tbsps raw pecans or walnuts for topping


  1. Preheat your oven to 190 degrees Celsius.
  2. Take a large mixing bowl and mash the banana with a fork. It's okay to still have a few little chunks in there.
  3. Now add your sugar, baking powder, salt and whisk for one minute.
  4. Stir in flax egg, vanilla, coconut oil and stir.
  5. Add your flour and stir until just combined.
  6. Divide the batter evenly into your silicone XL muffin pan. Fill each muffin up for about ⅔.
  7. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until tops are golden brown.
  8. Let cool for a few minutes, remove from your muffin tin and serve.  

Yum! :-)
