Fluffy Vegan Coconut Oil Banana Muffins

These muffins embody everything I was trying to achieve. No butter, no eggs, and no mixer needed.

Fluffy, soft, light, moist, and they’re vegan. And they remind me of mini donuts, a huge bonus.

I have many vegan banana muffin recipes from circa 2009, but they’re anything but light and fluffy. They’re made with almond meal to keep them gluten-free and are much heavier.

I have more recent banana recipes, to the tune of, oh about 35+ Banana Bread recipes. You can never have too many, right? But they’re not vegan. Although some use oil rather than butter, they all use eggs.

Because I loved the Pineapple Coconut Oil Banana Bread, I figured muffins and mini muffins would be fun, and kept them vegan.

I’m not vegan (I’m vegetarian), but many of my readers are, and some readers watch their egg consumption for health reasons. Plus, sometimes it’s nice to be able to bake vegan if you run out of eggs. Whoops.

I used Kelapo Coconut Oil Pre-Measured Baking Sticks. They’re pre-measured into half-cup portions and scored the way butter is, which is so handy for baking. Of course, using coconut oil from a jar is just fine.

As I’ve discussed before when baking with coconut oil, it doesn’t impart much flavor. There’s barely a hint of detectable coconut flavor in these muffins, perfect for those who aren’t as fond of coconut. Normally when people object to coconut, it’s usually shredded or flaked coconut, which are very distinct and powerful, far stronger than coconut oil.

If you’re out of coconut oil or still hung up about trying it, I’m sure you could substitute canola oil, although I haven’t tried it with this recipe and highly recommend coconut oil.

The flavor the coconut oil lends to the muffins is of the can’t-put-your-finger-on-it type. Combined with the sweet bananas, vanilla almond milk, and heavy dose of vanilla in the batter, I was in fluffy, fragrant muffin heaven.

I baked 24 mini muffins using a rounded tablespoon of batter. Spray your tablespoon with cooking spray, repeating as necessary, so the batter glides right off into the pan because filling up mini muffin pans can be messy. After two pans of minis, I made 7 regular-sized muffins in a standard muffin pan and used a one-quarter cup measure.

Fill both the mini and regular pans to between two-thirds and three-quarters full. You’ll be surprised how much this batter rises and the ones that were filled more than 3/4-full ended up turning into overgrown mushrooms. I have a knack for that. I want muffin top, not mushroom top.

I suspect they’d make great donuts and baking as a loaf would likely be okay as well, but there’s something about the individualized aspect of muffins that lends a special poppable quality you won’t get as a loaf.

They bake in quite a hot oven to ensure the high heat gives these egg-less wonders as much rise and doming as possible. Watch them closely in the last few minutes of baking so they don’t burn.

Baking times will vary based on what size pans you’re using. I baked the mini muffins for about 9 minutes and the full size for 15 minutes. Bake until they’re done. Watch your muffins, not the clock.

They’re done when a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean or with a few moist crumbs and they’re domed and springy to the touch. They’ll be more pale than golden.

I dipped the tops in cinnamon-sugar. Everything is better coated in cinnamon-sugar. I didn’t even need to brush on melted coconut oil (or vegan butter) for the coating to adhere. The sugar granules add lovely texture and remind me of eating mini-donuts. Except baked and vegan, nice.

They’re surprisingly light and fluffy for an egg-free muffin, which are often more like dense, lead balloons.

They’re not too light, though. Banana bread is and should be somewhat dense, and these have just the right amount of substance.

They’re so soft and moist, thanks to the coconut oil and bananas. The smell in your house while they bake is heaven-sent. Bread baking with bananas, vanilla, and coconut oil is beyond scrumptious.

I popped them in one after the next. Just one more. And one more. The ones we didn’t immediately scarf actually got softer on the second and third days, and the flavors intensified.

Mini food really does taste better.

Fluffy Vegan Coconut Oil Banana Muffins

No butter, no eggs, and no mixer is needed for these soft and fluffy vegan muffins and mini muffins. Thanks to the coconut oil and bananas, they're moist, flavorful, and remind me of mini donuts. If you're not a huge fan of coconut, that's okay because there's very little coconut flavor imparted. Instead, the banana, vanilla, and cinnamon-sugar shine. If you're looking for an easy muffin recipe that delivers light and fluffy results, and that just happens to be vegan, look no further than this one. Mini food really does taste better and these are so poppable.

Yield: about 30 to 36 mini muffins, or 16-18 regular

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes


1 to 1 1/4 cups mashed ripe bananas (about 3 small/medium or 2 large)
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg
pinch salt, optional and to taste
1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
1/2 cup coconut oil, melted (canola or vegetable oil could be substituted but I prefer coconut oil)
1/2 cup milk, slightly warmed (coconut, almond, soy, rice, cow's; I used unsweetened vanilla almond milk)
1/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
about 1/3 cup granulated sugar, for dipping
about 1 tablespoon cinnamon, for dipping


  1. Preheat oven to 400F. Spray non-stick muffin pans with floured cooking spray, or grease and flour the pans. (I prefer cosmetically to not use liners, and also the muffins could stick) I made 24 mini muffins and 7 regular muffins. I estimate the recipe will make 30 to 36 mini, or 16 to 18 regular-sized muffins. Set pans aside.
  2. In a small bowl, mash the bananas; set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, nutmeg, optional salt, and stir to incorporate; set aside.
  4. In a medium bowl, combine 1 1/4 cups granulated sugar, melted coconut oil (about 1 minute in the microwave), slightly warmed milk (about 20 seconds in the microwave - this prevents the cold milk from re-solidfying the coconut oil on contact), brown sugar, vanilla, and whisk to combine. Fold in the bananas.
  5. Pour wet mixture over the dry, stirring until just incorporated. Make sure to get all the dry bits from the bottom of the bowl, but don't overmix or muffins will be tough. Batter is quite thick and if yours is seemingly too thick, add a splash of milk to thin it.
  6. Using a cooking sprayed one-tablespoon measure for a mini muffin pan or a sprayed one-quarter cup measure for a regular sized pan (or what is appropriate for your pan size). Fill the cavities between 2/3 and 3/4 full; don't exceed 3/4 full.
  7. Bake until done. A toothpick inserted in the center should come out clean or with a few moist crumbs, but no batter. Tops will be domed, springy to the touch, and will be on the paler side rather than golden. Done for me was about 9 minutes for mini, 15 minutes for regular sized. Baking times will vary widely based on size of pans used, how many pans you have in the oven at once, how moist your bananas were, and how many times you open the oven door to rotate pans. Watch your muffins, not the clock.
  8. Allow muffins to cool in pan for about 10 minutes before carefully turning out onto wire racks to cool completely.
  9. If desired, after they're cool enough to handle, stir together about 1/3 cup granulated sugar and 1 tablespoon cinnamon, and dip the tops (or entire muffin) into it. I didn't need to brush with melted coconut oil or (vegan) butter in order for the cinnamon-sugar to adhere.
  10. Muffins will keep airtight at room temperature for up to 5 days or can be frozen for up to 3 months. They get softer and the flavor intensifies on the second and third day.

These were easy, used all ingredients that I had on hand, and so delicious. The perfect muffin texture, soft and springy and perfectly dense. I could definitely taste the coconut – it wasn’t really strong but it’s there. That’s a good thing for me since I love coconut and since my boyfriend / family don’t that means I get them all! :)

    I made a batch of these last night – yum! I absolutely love them, and will definitely make them again (when I happen to be out of eggs or butter). I used canola oil instead of coconut and they turned out just fine. Using a 1/4 cup measure, I got 15 full size muffins out of this recipe, and I baked them about 18 min. Next time, I will probably reduce the sugar a bit – I found the natural sweetness of the bananas to be enough, and when combined with the sugar called for in the recipe, the muffins tasted more like dessert than breakfast. Also, my muffins didn’t dome quite as much as the ones in the picture; they rose perfectly fine, but they just didn’t have a nice rounded muffintop. One thing worth mentioning: when I first pulled them out of the oven, I was worried because the tops were actually a bit hard and crunchy, probably due to the high oven temperature. But after leaving them to sit overnight, the tops softened and became wonderfully chewy. I’m assuming that it’s because of the brown sugar.
    Thank you for the wonderful recipe, Averie, I love your blog and I’m looking forward to getting your cookbook!

    • Averie Sunshine — June 3, 2013 at 5:32 pm (#

      My bananas weren’t of the super sweet/very ripe variety and so yes, just adjust sugar to taste. If you didn’t get domed muffin tops, I would try filling your cups just a little fuller, maybe another teaspoon or two of batter. That should do the trick. And of course, bake until they’re done but no longer to avoid any hardened tops. Also, if you dip the top in melted coconut oil or melted butter or butter substitute and then dip in cinnamon-sugar, that will also take care of any slightly firm tops. Or, just put in a ziplock til the next day and that does the trick, too, as you found out. Thanks for trying and LMK if you try again with any variations!

    Ahhh! I made these last night and I found them to be simply AWESOME! I love that the recipe is so simple and it happens to be vegan! It’s light and fluffy and the muffins aren’t dense, dry or cake-like at all. I was disappointed that they didn’t dome up like I thought they would. I made 12 bigger muffins and baked for 10 minutes at 400 degrees and then raised the temp to 425 and baked for 4 more minutes, hoping that would make them dome up but it sadly did not. Otherwise, no complaints :) and the batter was delicious as well haha.

    • Averie Sunshine — August 15, 2013 at 11:44 pm (#

      With muffins, I’ve found you should start hot and get cooler, if you’re going to tinker with your oven temp. Reason being is b/c the hotter the oven, the more/stronger the chemical that’ll take place. And I also got a bigger rise, relatively speaking, in the mini muffins than the full-size ones. Mini muffins are a pain to make, but I did get more of a puff out of them than the fullsize. However, really, not that important. Some muffins don’t get crazy ‘puffy’ or domed and these are that kind. For vegan muffins, I am just grateful they’re as light and good as they are!

    These are FANTASTIC. I don’t particularly like banana bread but I occasionally make it for my husband when we have too many over ripe bananas – and these are sooooo good I can’t stop eating them. Since my bananas were already extremely ripe I cut the sugar back to 1/2 cup. I also used whole wheat pastry flour and substituted unsweetened applesauce for half of the oil, and they are still so light and fluffy I can’t believe it. I made these yesterday and they taste even better today :) Thank you!!!

    Do you think you could use either coconut or almond flour instead of all purpose?

    • Averie Sunshine — July 7, 2014 at 12:15 am (#

      No because they both behave totally differently than AP flour in terms of how the muffins will rise, how the flour will absorb and incorporate, etc.

      You could use those flours to make muffins with – just not these muffins with the ratios I used.

    Just wanted to leave a note for anyone wanting to make these gluten-free. I made a batch last night and the results are ok, nothing amazing but still tasty. I used an all-purpose gluten-free flour blend {Pamela’s Artisan Blend} with no added xanthan gum because the blend contains guar gum already. The muffin flavor is great but they did not rise and they’re pretty dense. Love your recipes though Averie!


    • Averie Sunshine — March 27, 2015 at 8:48 am (#

      Thanks for trying the recipe and for giving it an attempt at GF!

      GF baking can be tricky and I haven’t made these with GF flour so can’t speak for personal results. But yes, baking without gluten, things do tend to be dense and don’t rise as well because there’s no gluten, which creates rising and lightness in texture. I think if you make these with regular AP flour like I did, you’d love them! If you want a naturally GF muffin (not vegan though) try these! Amazing! Everyone loves them! http://www.averiecooks.com/2013/10/flourless-peanut-butter-chocolate-chip-mini-blender-muffins.html
