Gloomy Day


It is a cloudy, gloomy day. It is getting colder and tomorrow it is supposed to snow. So what a better day for baking and let the good kitchen aromas brighten my day?!

I’ve been meaning to bake some nice morning, nutritious, breakfast muffins. I came up with this idea and it turn out so delicious, it made my day! You know, only the best is in here, coconut oil, flaxseed, bananas, raspberries… Bet you cant wait to try them.

This can be a perfect Christmas morning breakfast! They freeze perfectly, can be made ahead of time, and microwave them just before serving.



Serves 18



3/4 Cup all-purpose flour

3/4 Cup whole wheat flour

2    Tablespoon flaxseed

3/4 Cup brown sugar

1    teaspoon baking soda

1    teaspoon baking powder

2    Eggs

1/3 Cup coconut oil

1/2 Cup Coconut milk

1    teaspoon vanilla

3    Ripe bananas

1    Cup raspberries roughly chopped

1/2 Chopped pecans



  • Preheat oven to 350º F
  • In a medium bowl mix all the dry ingredients with the exception of the sugar


  • In a large bowl mash the bananas, then add the sugar and the rest of the wet ingredients
  • Mix until everything is combined. Do not overdue


  • Add 1/3 of the dry ingredients mix to the wet ingredient mix. Combine and repeat with the other 2/3 of the dry ingredients mix
  • Fold in the raspberries and the pecans



  • Put muffin liners in a muffin tin and fill them with the mixture. Give them a little space to rise


  • Bake for about 25 minutes, until they are golden brown and a toothpick comes out dry


  • If you want to decorate them I stick a fresh raspberry with a little bit of honey and dusted some powder sugar
