  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • approximately 1/2 cup of chopped nuts
  • mini chocolate chips optional


  • Pre-heat oven to 375F
  • Mash the bananas thoroughly .
  • Then, add all the wet ingredients together. Milk, oil/butter,Maple syrup & espresso. If you are using instant coffee, then mix it in with water first and then add it. Combine well.

  • Fold in chopped nuts.
  • Place the liners in the muffin pan . Pour the batter onto each liner. Bake at 375F for 22-24 mins. Or until toothpick comes clean.
  • Let the muffins cool down for 5 minutes in the muffin pan, then transfer to a wire rack to continue cooling.
  • Store the muffins in room temperature for a couple of days and up-to a week in refrigerator.


  • coconut oil and butter induce different levels of moisture to the muffins. Muffins tend to be on the moister side when coconut oil is used. 
  • The type of sweetener will also add a slight change in the texture and flavor of the Muffins.
  • If you are using jaggery, add a little more than what recipe calls for. Finally, adjust the spices and sweetness according to your taste.
  • I used maple syrup and coconut oil while making this recipe
  • Swap 1/2 cup of flour with rolled oats for whole grains and chewy texture in the muffins.
