Dry ingredients

  • 2 cups flour
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ¼ tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp sea salt

Liquid ingredients

  • 1 cup sour coconut milk add 1 tbsp white vinegar and mix
  • 3 tbsp coconut oil melted
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 tbsp molasses


  • 2 tbsp coconut oil melted
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon


  • In a medium sized bowl, mix together the dry ingredients. In a separate bowl mix together the liquid ingredients except for the coconut oil. Add the coconut oil while stirring liquid ingredient and immediately pour the liquids to the dry ingredients and gently fold together. Spoon into muffin tins.
  • Topping: Mix topping together and sprinkle on top of muffins. Using a small knife, gently cut/mix the topping into the muffins. You should still be able to see the topping when you are done cutting it in.
  • Bake at 350 for 30-35 minutes.


The coconut oil may form small balls when you mix it into the liquid ingredients. This will not effect the taste or texture of your muffins. 
If you want to add a bit of healthy crunch, a teaspoon of chia seeds can be added to the topping mix.
