Coconut & Vanilla Muffin Recipe
This is an easy dairy free and gluten free muffin recipe
- 300 g spelt flour
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp vanilla essence
- 260 g Alpro Plain yoghurt
- 120 ml coconut oil melted
- 175 g maple syrup
- 2 flax eggs
- 100 g coconut flakes
Preheat oven to 180 degrees celsius/160 degrees celsius for a fan oven. Place paper muffin cases into a 12-hole muffin tray.
Add the flour to a mixing bowl and stir in the baking powder.
In a separate bowl, mix together the vanilla and the yogurt, and stir in the coconut oil, maple syrup and the flax eggs.
Add the liquid mixture to the flour and baking powder we prepared earlier.
Whisk the wet and dry ingredients together.
Place a heaped tablespoon of the mixture into each case.
Top with coconut flakes.
Bake for 30 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean.
Let cool for five minutes then enjoy!
These can be stored in an airtight container for up to five days. If alpro plain yogurt isn’t available you can use any other dairy-free plain yogurt. The maple syrup can be replaced with agave nectar.
I absolutely loved how simple this recipe was! Coconut and vanilla are two of my favourite flavours. Definitely not many left in my house when I make a batch!
Don’t worry if you haven’t tried flax eggs before, they are very easy to use and I find they work so well at binding everything together!
