Refined Sugar Free Banana Poppy Muffins | © 2017 | | © 2017 |

Start your day the healthy way with these refined sugar-free banana and poppy muffins which you can freeze and defrost when needed.
Erythritol looks like sugar and tastes like sugar. It is 70% as sweet as sugar, yet it is virtually non-caloric, does not affect blood sugar, and does not cause tooth decay. Coconut flour, made from ground dried, defatted coconut meat, is high in fiber and low in sugar and digestible carbohydrates.

  • 2 Very ripe bananas
  • 100 g Erythritol granules
  • 50 g Coconut oil, melted
  • 150 ml Kefir, room-temperature
  • 150 g Spelt pastry flour
  • 40 g Coconut flour
  • 5 g Baking powder
  • 5 g Baking soda
  • 1/3 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Cinnamon powder
  • 30 g Poppy
  • Walnut halves
  1. Preheat the oven to 190C/375F. Grease 6 maxi muffin cups and set aside.
  2. Mash the bananas and erythritol until smooth. Add in coconut oil and kefir. Stir until well combined.
  3. Whisk together the spelt, coconut flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. Add the banana mixture into the dry mixture until just incorporated. Now fold in poppy.
  4. Divide the batter into the muffin cups and top with walnut halves. Bake in the hot oven for about 25-28 minutes until nicely golden brown and cooked when tested. | © 2017 | | © 2017 |

These do look like a great way to start the day! A banana muffin and so much better. Have never heard of Erythritol. Is is a natural ingredient? I need to start using more coconut flour and it's recipes like this that inspire me. Thanks Angie!

Mindy Boyd 29/6/17 04:54

We love everything banana at our house and these look so yummy!

Jeff 29/6/17 05:11

These muffins look serious. Are they as filling as they look?

Evolve With Mary 29/6/17 05:27

I have yet to try Erythritol but I’ve only heard great things. Since I’m a huge fan of banana nut bread looks like this recipe is perfect of me. Thank you of sharing Angie :)

Rafeeda AR 29/6/17 06:50

I love anything with bananas in it... lovely recipe!

Chitz 29/6/17 07:15

Wow.. nice recipe.. have never baked something with coconut oil before.. my kiddo loves muffins with banana in them.. so wil try this some time.. by the way what is coconut flour? Never come across that before..

Rosa 29/6/17 07:57

Healthy and delicious Muffins.. Anything with banana is my favorite :)

Veronica Ng 29/6/17 10:28

Definitely a great way to start the day - by gobbling up your healthy and delicious muffins! I tried baking with coconut flour once and it made my cakes very dry so I stopped using it. Maybe I should start using again with your recipe. Thanks for sharing Angie.

Tricia Buice 29/6/17 12:58

Love the addition of coconut flour - and that sweetener sounds very interesting. The muffins look amazing especially with those big chunks of walnuts! I could use some of these in my freezer for a quick breakfast or snack with afternoon tea :) Lovely!

Liz Berg 29/6/17 13:32

These are gorgeous, Angie! Plus I don't do well with sugar these days so this looks like a yummy, guilt-free snack or breakfast :)

All That I'm Eating 29/6/17 13:59

I've not heard of that sugar substitute before - could you use coconut sugar? These sound great.

Jean | 29/6/17 15:38

Angie, I would love these! Why have I never thought of putting poppy seeds in my banana muffins?

Evi @ greenevi 29/6/17 17:20

Isn’t it the best when you can make something both healthy and delicious! I got spelt flour and have started using it (for my my family). My husband doesn't like banana so I'll try your poppy kefir muffins with spelt.

Alida 30/6/17 18:10

Erythritol isn't something I've worked with -- really need to give it a try. Need to give these muffins a try, too. They look wonderful! Thanks so much.

Big Rigs 'n Lil' Cookies 5/7/17 01:37

I have an Erythritol/Xylitol blend that I use for sugar free baking. I will have to try it your delicious muffins. They look like the perfect way to start the day!

I relish banana muffins. However, I don't try to have them often as I'm on a diet to lose weight. If only I could eat sugar free muffins then it would be great!
