Happy Easter! Welcome to March Muffin Madness (MMM) once again! This is the best March Madness, folks. It’s full of gluten-free muffin recipes, cookbooks, guidebooks, meal plans, subscriptions, food products that you need and love, and—this might be the best part—fabulous kitchen equipment! After all, the grand prize is a Blendtec!
Paleo Coconut Flour Banana Muffins from GAPS Diet Journey
Starlene of GAPS Diet Journey is sharing Paleo Coconut Flour Banana Muffins. She doesn’t call them “paleo,” but they do fit the requirements for paleo, which means they’re gluten free, grain free, dairy free, and refined sugar free. As Starlene shares GAPS diet-compliant recipes on her blog, you won’t be surprised that this recipe is also suitable for those on the GAPS diet. Last, it’s nut free!
Starlene’s description of these muffins is to the point: “This is one of my favorites, Banana Muffins. So easy to make, always turn out perfect and everyone loves them!” The only thing left is the making and enjoying of these muffins!
Starlene has some other muffin recipes you must check out, too.

Today’s Daily Giveaway
Starlene is a self-taught expert on using coconut flour, which is a grain-free and nut-free flour used for paleo, GAPS, and other special diets. She says: “Coconut flour is VERY UNIQUE when compared to other flours; however, you CAN discover how to work with coconut flour and you will be successful once you have all my tips and tricks for baking with coconut flour.” Note that she uses eggs in her coconut flour baking; only a few of her recipes will work with flax gel eggs or egg substitutes. All of her recipes, including today’s Banana Muffins recipe, are made using Tropical Traditions organic coconut flour (by the way, I totally agree with Starlene on using this brand of coconut flour). Thanks to Starlene for sponsoring this giveaway of her cookbooks! She also sponsored the giveaway of the silicone baking cups earlier in MMM.

What great recipes
I’ve been gf for quite a few years but have been trying more paleo and trying to cut out the sugar. This looks like a good recipe to try.
Love coconut flour and I can always use more coconut flour recipes.
I would love a Blendtec
Charlotte Moore says
Would love to try the Insta Pot Pressure Cooker. I have read lots about them.
I would love to see the quick breads cookbook.
Joy Carlton says
I have never used my coconut flour although I fully intend on using it. It is just a little intimidating to me. The Coconut Muffins look wonderful! I will try these.
The quick breads cookbook looks great!
Sarah V. says
I have a lot of coconut flour that I need to use up, so winning any of these cookbooks would be great. I’d especially love the pumpkin one!
I am grain free so I would love to win the coconut flour cookbooks. Anxious to try the muffins.
Sheila Hurt says
I just a bag of coconut flour and i was looking for different ways to bake with it. These cookbooks would really help with that.
Sheila Hurt says
That Blendtec would really save me a a lot tof time in the kitchen.
Michelle P says
Wow, again sounds like a great recipe. And the cookbooks sound great as well. I don’t bake much now, but these would come handy!
I love the natural sweetness of baking with coconut flour
Wendi Niccole says
I’d love to have Mastering the Art of Cooking with Coconut Flour. The muffins sound delicious.
Wow, all your books look great…just started using coconut flour
Every time I’ve used coconut flour, the finished product has been so dry! I know that it absorbs a lot of liquid, but even when the recipe calls for a tonne of liquid it still seems to dry out…might have to play around with the recipes a bit.
Debbie Beck says
Made these, they were so good!!!! I added 1/2 c. chopped pecans, next time I’m adding mini choc. chips, instead of the pecans.
