Coconut Muffins

Tasty and smooth textured coconut muffin made at home

One bowl coconut muffin recipe. Usually, coconut flour recipes are dry and crumbly, and they don’t hold together very well. NOT this recipe. You will enjoy a smooth dough that when you eat the muffin you don’t have to drink a gallon of water to easy up the swallowing. We intentionally use a lot of eggs so watch out the calories.

Keto-Friendly Muffins

To make these muffins keto-friendly, just substitute the honey with stevia or any other keto-friendly sweetener.

  • You can check if the muffins are done by inserting a wooden toothpick into the batter. If the toothpick is clean, then the muffins are ready. I usually take my muffins out of the oven when they have formed a brown crust on top.
  • To store the muffins, I put plastic wrapper on top of the muffin tins, or I store them in air tight container. Since the recipe has eggs, I only store the muffins for maximum of one day on the counter, and then move all of them in the fridge. I seldom have to move the muffins to the fridge because my family loves them and everything is gone within a day!
