These Grain-Free "Triple Coconut" Muffins are a delicious snack without the processed sugar, grains/gluten, or dairy.

You know those recipe ideas that grab you and won’t let go? Well, if you’ve never dreamed up an original recipe for something you think would be delicious then maybe not… But anyway, the idea for these crossed my mind when I saw some Double Coconut Muffins on Smitten Kitchen, but why stop at just double coconut? Why not up the ante and make them triple coconut muffins?

These Grain-Free "Triple Coconut" Muffins are a delicious snack without the processed sugar, grains/gluten, or dairy.

I call these “triple” because they use coconut in three different forms: coconut flour, coconut oil and shredded coconut (if you love triple coconut, try quadruple coconut in my Only Coconut Cookies or you can experiment with adding coconut milk and make them quadruple coconut muffins)!

These Grain-Free "Triple Coconut" Muffins are a delicious snack without the processed sugar, grains/gluten, or dairy.

The original recipe has things that I omitted like all-purpose flour, sugar, and yogurt. Instead, I upped up the number of eggs and amount of vanilla to give these muffins height and flavor in a different way.  These are dense, moist, sweet and fantastic with coffee.

These Grain-Free "Triple Coconut" Muffins are a delicious snack without the processed sugar, grains/gluten, or dairy.

The combination of nut flour with coconut flour makes for a better “crumb”, in my opinion, and the coconut flour helps to soak up the excess moisture that’s a result of using a liquid sweetener (honey) instead of a dry one like white sugar.

Enjoy!

Where does the coconut oil come in?

Hello! Do you think this recipe would still work if I used all coconut flour? Thanks!

Fresh Planet Flavor July 20, 2015 - 2:36 am

Unfortunately, no. Coconut works very differently than almond flour… a straight substitution would result in very dry muffins!

These look absolutely incredible — I am a total coconut fiend! Unfortunately, though, I have an almond allergy. Are there other types of flour that are Paleo-compliant that I could use in place of the almond flour? I was hoping using all coconut flour was the answer, but I see that’s not an option. 🙁

I just made them and I replaced the almond flour with tiger nut flour, since I can’t find any other recipesuggestions for it, and they turn out great! I added a little water

Wow! So glad they worked out!

Kathryn August 14, 2015 - 11:45 pm

Thank you! I’d never even hear of tiger nut flour and am so happy to hear that’s an option (both for these and just in general since tree nut flours are so common for Paleo baked goods). I’m super excited to try these as soon as I finish my Whole30.

Hi there,

These look great! Maybe I am totally missing it but I don’t see where/when to add the coconut oil?

Thx so much!

Nope, you didn’t miss it… I forgot to add it! Corrected now.

I have made these twice and they are awesome. I am just getting my paleo toes wet and this was a great start. Although I don’t believe everything the advocates preach, I do believe we need to eat clean. I have never used prepackaged products to any extent and one, not at all. Thanks!

I never know what kind of muffin pan! The same as cupcakes? Or is it the kind where the slots are bigger and there’s only 6?

Reply
Fresh Planet Flavor July 17, 2015 - 3:17 am

Just a regular muffin pan should do just fine, Annie!

Reply
Annie July 18, 2015 - 4:36 pm

Just has 6, not 12 holes, right?

Reply
Fresh Planet Flavor July 20, 2015 - 2:32 am

12 holes! Just a regular muffin tin.

Thanks!

Made these on Monday night and….yum!! I want to make them again and toast the coconut flakes first. Have you tried making anything with the batter pre-egg whites? It had a texture that seemed it *might* make a good cookie… 🙂 Thanks for the recipe!

Reply
Fresh Planet Flavor October 27, 2016 - 4:58 pm

No, haven’t tried anything else with the batter but that sounds like a great idea!

Is the coconut oil a solid 1/4 cup then melted or is the measure you give for liquid?

Reply
Fresh Planet Flavor December 29, 2017 - 10:41 pm

This is a measure for liquid coconut oil.
