Servings: 12 muffins


Flours & Spice

  • 190 g all purpose flour
  • 20 g chickpea flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt

Everything Else Nice

  • 2 very ripe bananas
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil 54g
  • 1/4 cup Maple syrup 80g
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup sourdough starter 140g
  • 1/4 cup full fat canned coconut milk 60g
  • 1 cup blueberries


  • Preheat oven to 350 and grease a muffin tin.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine all the "Flours & Spice" dry ingredients.
  • In another medium bowl, first mash the bananas with a fork, then mix in the rest of the "Everything Else Nice" wet ingredients. If you want the blueberries to stay whole, save them to mix in until the end.
  • Add the wet ingredients to the large mixing bowl with the Flours & Spice and mix well to combine.
  • Divide into the 12 muffin cups and then bake for about 20-25 minutes.
  • Use the toothpick test to see if they're done – stick in a toothpick and if it comes out clean, the muffins are done.
  • Let cool for a few minutes and then move to a cooling rack.


You can use active sourdough starter, or sourdough starter discard – even if you’ve been keeping it in the fridge for a while. Just bring it up to room temperature before using.
