Coconut Blueberry Cupcakes

Prep Time

10 minutes

Cook Time

25 minutes


9 regular size muffins


  • 2 ripe bananas mashed
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil melted
  • 1 - 3 tablespoons maple syrup (optional)
  • 1/3 cup coconut flour
  • 2 tablespoons of chia seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup of frozen organic blueberries


  1. Preheat oven to 350° and grease/line a 12 cup muffin tin.
  2. In a blender add the bananas, oil, maple syrup, eggs, vanilla and chia seeds until a smooth consistency. It’s also fine to do this by hand.
  3. If using a blender add the remaining dry ingredients and mix until well combined. Otherwise place the dry ingredients into a bowl, mix and add the wet ingredients and mix well until you have a smooth batter.
  4. Fold in the blueberries at the end.
  5. Spoon the batter evenly into the muffin cups.
  6. Decorate with a sliced banana and a sprinkling of chia seeds.
  7. Bake for 20 – 25 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean (unless it hits a blueberry)!
  8. Let the muffins cool in the pan for about 10 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

    Hi Sharon, do you think if I substitute the egg these would still work?

    • Sharon Selby on April 5, 2022 at 2:16 pm

      Hi Mary-Anne, I haven’t tried but I think a replacer like a flax egg would work.
      Let me know how you go.
