I am having one of those weeks where I’m really not motivated to do much. Usually I am quite the busy body and very active throughout the day. I guess we all have those not so great moments in our lives. You feel a little deflated but you don’t quite understand why.

Everything I experience, emotionally or physically I have my autoimmune conditions to blame. I have to pin it down to something, don’t I?? When I’m having a bad day or a bad week or a bad anything I just cook and bake. These Egg-Free Banana Coconut Muffins definitely made me feel better.

I was up early this morning testing out my new recipe for Egg-Free Banana Coconut Muffins.  They lifted my spirits and turned out perfect too, especially for Egg-Free. All I can say is that they are yum! My mum-in-law taught me how to make an egg-free Fruit Cake when I was down in Durban for our recent holiday. I followed a similar recipe to make these muffins.

We abstain from meat a lot, for religious festivals and on Mondays and Tuesdays and that includes eggs. Therefore I love having some of my own egg-free recipes. I suppose the egg-free recipes are also good for people that are allergic to eggs.

Here in SA I don’t see any egg-free muffins or cakes in our stores. These Egg-Free Banana Muffins are also really easy to make. I pop all the ingredients into a food processor and once it’s all mixed into the oven it goes. Mrs Fuss-free is at it again.

I know the recipe calls for Self-raising flour and baking powder. And no it’s not an error. It’s what my mum-in-law uses in her recipe and I followed through. It’s works amazingly well with a perfect rise so I didn’t want to take that chance and change it.

You will note I didn’t add loads of sugar because I hate overly sweet stuff. For me this amount was perfect as I felt the Bananas also added that extra bit of sweetness. You can always add more should you wish. I also just sprinkled some pecans on top because my boys are not crazy about them. You can double the amount and add some to the batter if you wish.

Overall I am very pleased with this recipe. I have struggled to make egg-free stuff taste yummy but I think I am finally there.

    I made these as I had run out of eggs, and they were absolutely gorgeous, moist and fluffy! I also added dried cranberries which added a lovely subtle sweetness. I used shredded coconut which worked well too. Highly recommend this recipe.

    Do you know how I could make this work with apples? Thanks!

      Thank you so much Molly! They are delicious even without the eggs, I agree. For the apples you can follow the method exactly like it is, skip the bananas, add some cinnamon and at the end you can fold in the apple. I will post a recipe shortly. Good luck!
