Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400F (200 °C = 180 °C Fan = 400 °F = Gas Mark 6).
  2. While the oven is preheating, place the chopped pecans in a cake pan or tray, toast them until lightly golden and then place in a bowl to cool.
  3. Sift all the dry ingredients together and set aside. (Important: For accurate cup measurements, I sift the potato starch before measuring, so that there are no lumps/clumps. All cup measurements are firmly packed.)
  4. In another bowl, whisk together the mashed banana, milk, coconut oil, vanilla extract and the maple syrup.
  5. Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients and pour in the wet ingredients, mixing until combined, before stirring through the chopped pecans.
  6. Fill each liner to approximately ¾ full. Now sprinkle a few of the chopped pecan nuts over each muffin and approximately a scant ½ teaspoon of the Demerara sugar.
  7. Bake for approximately 20-22 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  8. Allow the muffins to cool in the tin for 2 minutes, before transferring them to a wire rack to cool.

Notes

All cup measurements are firmly packed. For accurate cup measurements, I sift the potato starch before measuring, so that there are no lumps/clumps.
