I've finally managed to get spelt muffins light and fluffy! The use of coconut oil and fruit sugar make these healthy as well as moist. It was a lovely surprise, as usual attempts at delicious AND healthy baking never seem to work out. One could make these wheat- free and dairy-free muffins also Vegan by using chia seeds in place of egg; I've read somewhere you can make some sort of chia 'egg' binder. —Becky Gilhespie
12 medium sized muffins
Coconut oil, melted
Egg, lightly beaten
Light Coconut Milk
Large banana, mashed
fruit sugar or other NATURAL sugar substitute (I used Fruisana. Stevia/Truvia would also work nicely. Change quantities as necessary for product. 1/3 Fruisana = 1 cup normal sugar)
desiccated coconut , plus more for sprinkling on top
