Coconut muffins – Sugar & Butter free 

This recipe is super easy and really fast to make. The idea was to produce a sugar free option that didn’t lack flavour and I think these are it! I would describe their consistency as a fluffy scone – Post baking is the time to add your own toppings if you are after a sugary hit! I went for a drizzle of honey and pistachio butter, but they would work just as well with a lemon curd or a fruit jam of your choice.

This recipe makes 12 coconut muffins.


  • 12 muffin cases
  • 1 cup unsweetened desiccated coconut
  • 1 cup self-raising flour
  • 1 cup plain flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 cup milk (your choice which type)
  • ½ cup oil
  • 1 large egg


  1. Heat the oven to 190c. Place muffin cases into a muffin tray and set aside. In a large bowl measure out all the dry ingredients
  2. Separately in a measuring jug add the milk, oil and egg. Whisk to combine.
  3. Create a well in the middle of the dry ingredients and gently fold in the wet mixture. When all is just combined spoon into muffin cases.
  4. Bake – Middle shelf oven for 20 minutes until risen and golden brown.

Store in a cool dry place!
Happy baking,
