Coconut Cupcakes versus Winter Weather

It’s foggy, very cold and generally just gloomy (and it’s been like this for at least a week or so). I definitely need to cheer things up! And nothing works better for me, than a run (yes, even if it’s freezing) and some baking.
Since I’ve been already been out for my run, I can now indulge in some baking…

The Ingredients
2 banane
13oz/360g greek yoghurt
2tbsp honey
2tbsp coconut oil/fat
4tbsp grated coconut
4tbsp quinoa flour or plain flour
2tbsp coconut flour
2tsp baking powder
1 pinch of salt
8 handfuls of blueberries

Preheat the oven at 356 °F/ 180°C. Mash up the bananas with a fork, add the coconut oil/fat, the honey and mix. Then add the rest of the ingredients and stir. don’t add the blueberries until the end and only mix slightly (otherwise the dough becomes a purple mess). Bake for 25 minutes.

Now all you need to do is make yourself comfortable and enjoy!

        Hi Tammy, I tried your Coconut Cupcakes recipe and it didn’t came out good. I end up baking it for 2 hours before it was cooked. It was so liquidy. May be I used too much oil. I followed your recipe which says 2tbsp coconut oil. I don’t know that means 2tbsp of liquid coconut oil or 2tbsp of solid coconut oil? Please advise me? I love this recipe and I wish I could make it myself. Anyway I failed to make it right and I don’t know what the problem is. Please reply? Thank you

        • Dear Jenifer, I used solid coconut oil. When you put the dough into the cupcakes tray it should be sticky. If the mix is too liquid, I would advise to add a little more flour. I hope you get a better result next time.
          Kind regards,

            Thank you Tammy for your response. I used 2 table spoon solid coconut oil too. I was thinking may be 13 oz yougurt is too much. I love this recipe that’s why I want to get it right. Thank you for you advise. I will add more flour to see what happens.
            Take care,

  1. Living in the land of millions of coconut trees (literally) I think I have to try this recipe although I am not a good baker. Hopefully sometime this week (or weekend). It does look wonderful though…I can already imagine sinking my teeth on the steamy cup cake with a steamy black coffee on my other hand…sigh (I am drooling).
