Ingredients

  • 2 cups whole wheat white flour*
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup mashed bananas about 2 large
  • 6 ounces plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup crushed pineapple drained
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans

Instructions 

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Line muffin cavities with paper liners. Give the muffin liners a quick spritz of cooking spray so the muffins don't stick. Set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the sugar, oil, and eggs until frothy, then whisk in the bananas, yogurt, milk, and vanilla until incorporated. Fold in the crushed pineapple and coconut.
  • Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, stirring just until incorporated. Using an ice cream scoop, scoop the batter into the prepared muffin cups, filling them about 3/4 full. Sprinkle the batter with the chopped pecans.
  • Bake 15-20 minutes or until the top springs back when touched and the muffins are golden brown. Cool 10 minutes on a wire rack, then remove the muffins from the pan and allow to cool completely on the wire rack. Enjoy!

Notes

  • The whole wheat white flour may be substituted with half all purpose and half whole wheat, or all purpose.
  • The coconut sugar may be subbed with your favorite sweetener.
  • Store muffins in an air tight container at room temperature for 3 days, or refrigerate for up to 5 days. They're also freezer friendly!
