  • 3
    ripe bananas, mashed
  • ¾ cup (180 mL)
    unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 Tbsp (14 g)
    refined coconut oil, melted
  • 1½ cups (156 g)
    oat flour
  • 1 cup (116 g)
  • ½ cup (112 g)
    granulated sugar
  • 1 Tbsp (4 g)
    instant coffee granules
  • 2 tsp (7 g)
    baking powder
  • ¼ tsp



  1. Lightly grease the wells of a muffin tin and preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C)*.
  2. Add the bananas to a large bowl and mash until puréed. Then add the milk and oil and mix well.
  3. Add the remaining muffin ingredients and mix until there are no lumps left. Fill the wells of the muffin tin until ¾ full.
  4. In a small bowl, combine the sugar and cinnamon for the topping and sprinkle it on the muffins. Add a pecan to the top of each muffin.
  5. Bake on the centre rack in the preheated oven for 16 - 18 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean. Let cool for 5 minutes before removing from the muffin tins, and enjoy!


  • Refined coconut oil is coconut oil that doesn't smell or taste like coconuts. If you prefer a distinct coconut taste, use unrefined coconut oil instead.
  • Use store-bought oat flour, or make it yourself by adding old-fashioned rolled oats to a food processor and blending until you achieve a flour-like consistency.
  • We don't advise swapping out the chickpea flour for all-purpose flour as it may result in muffins that are too dense and dry.
  • * We used top and bottom heating (not fan-assisted/convection).


  • Best to enjoy these muffins immediately, warm out of the oven.
  • The muffins can be stored in an airtight container on the counter for up to 3 days.

Aileen - April 12, 2024, 8:47 a.m.

These are to die for!! Oh my! I added some chocolate chips on top of a few instead of the pecan, too, as I love chocolate. These muffins are delicious. I devoured it within seconds as soon as l took my first bite. Yum!

Also, I believe this recipe is missing the “one bowl” tag. (One of my favorite tags.)

PUL Team - April 13, 2024, 4:14 a.m.

Yayy so happy to hear you're enjoying the muffins, Aileen! We opted not to add the "one bowl" tag to this recipe since it uses a large bowl and separate small bowl 😊

Aileen - April 13, 2024, 7 a.m.

I see, thank you!

Melanie - Feb. 21, 2024, 2:59 p.m.

These are so yum! I used a liquid coffee extract instead of the granules and reduced the amount of plant milk. They came out amazing. Will make them again!

Lily Wu - Feb. 17, 2024, 8:23 p.m.

Yum!!! One of the best looking muffin I’ve done in a while - rose perfectly and the topping was the perfect touch.

I didn’t have oat flour so subbed in almond flour 1:1. Also sub the milk with Oat milk… and instead of coffee - subbed in chocolate powder. Lately, didn’t have pecans so did walnut instead. Ha.

It’s super tasty and fluffy! Thank you for this wonderful recipe. Will definitely add it to our regular baking schedule!

PUL Team - Feb. 18, 2024, 6:42 a.m.

Yayy we're beyond happy to hear that the banana coffee muffins were enjoyed, Lily! Love the substitution ideas 🤗

Jessica Bunce - Feb. 6, 2024, 4:15 p.m.

fun and delicious, I made mini muffins, shortened time by two minutes (24 min bake) and added half the sugar since my banana were extra ripe. Plus I did add Demara sugar and Himalayan salt with a dash of cinnamon for a nice crunch on top! Last sub was AP flour, which is what I have on hand, and I can’t compare to the original but this is a success in my book!

Jessica Bunce - Feb. 6, 2024, 4:16 p.m.

*14 mins (NOT 24…oops)

PUL Team - Feb. 7, 2024, 1:44 a.m.

Thanks a bunch for sharing your experience with the banana coffee muffins, Jessica!

Heidi - Feb. 5, 2024, 4:17 a.m.

These are DELICIOUS! I made a batch for my toddler (omitting the coffee and added cinnamon instead). She loves them and I’m so glad because it’s a nutrient dense muffin and simple to make! Off to make another batch now!

PUL Team - Feb. 5, 2024, 7:06 a.m.

A lovely idea to idea to use cinnamon for your little one, Heidi, thank you! Happy baking 🤗

Michelle - Jan. 31, 2024, 11:01 p.m.

So yummy! I didn't have oat flour so I swapped it for AP and they turned out great! They rose nicely and the toppings really took it up a notch. I think next time I might try incorporating pecans into the batter as well. Probably my new favorite muffin recipe!

PUL Team - Feb. 1, 2024, 12:32 a.m.

Thanks for sharing your modification with the muffins, Michelle! We hope you enjoy the banana coffee muffins with pecans if you try it out 🤩

Archa N.G - Dec. 19, 2023, 7:22 p.m.

I made them yesterday and came out very well. I substituted chickpea flour with gram flour (besan in Hindi). The only problem was that the bake time was more and there was leftover batter even after filling for 12 muffins. But overall it was easy and the muffin was delicious.

PUL Team - Dec. 20, 2023, 8:41 a.m.

Glad to hear your muffins turned out well with the substitution, Archa, and thanks for sharing the insight with it 🤗

Kitty Ernst-van den Broek - Dec. 16, 2023, 9:19 a.m.

I eat them almost every week. I keep them in the frezer and heat them in the microwave. They are my favourite and easy to make!

erica bulow - Nov. 18, 2023, 3:29 p.m.

Made these mini and substituted cinnamon for coffee to make it more kid friendly.

Ann-Mari - Nov. 7, 2023, 8:09 p.m.

I made minimuffins out of the batch and swapped the pecan for ripples of melted chocolate. That also worked well and tasted lovely.

Denisa K - Sept. 22, 2023, 7:55 p.m.

Delicious and fast. Would definitely made again.

suzanne - Sept. 6, 2023, 11:25 a.m.

Love them, super tasty!!

C. Reynolds - Aug. 24, 2023, 5:16 a.m.

I made the Banana Coffee muffins and they turned out great. My only substitutes were I used soy milk and almonds on the top. (I used what I had). I also used coconut sugar in the recipe instead of granulated sugar. What a lovely, not too sweet treat. I appreciate that they are gluten free as my brother doesn't eat gluten. I appreciate that the pea flour adds more protein.

PUL Team - Aug. 26, 2023, 2:46 a.m.

Oh how lovely, C, we're so glad the muffins are being enjoyed!

Georgina - Aug. 13, 2023, 5:57 a.m.

I forgot to put in the baking powder! Surprisingly enjoyable anyway. I will definitely make them again (correctly, this time!)

PUL Team - Aug. 13, 2023, 7:08 a.m.

Glad they were still enjoyed, Georgina! In case you're interested and haven't seen already, you can click the ingredient names to cross them out. We find it helpful to click on the ingredients after adding them to ensure that we don't forget anything 😊

Claudia S - Aug. 2, 2023, 1:28 a.m.

omg these are delicious! perfect breakfast muffins. Thank you Sadia

Siddhi - July 28, 2023, 12:43 p.m.

I made a batch of these muffins and they were absolutely delicious. Your recipes are perfect and easy to make. Thanks Sadia!

PUL Team - July 30, 2023, 6:42 p.m.

Woohoo! So happy the muffins were enjoyed, Siddhi, thank you 😊

Deepa Prabhath - July 13, 2023, 8:42 p.m.

I tried this recipe today. Am not a fan of chickpea flour. So I replaced it with almond flour and the muffins turned out just perfect . Thanks Sadia!

Athena - July 11, 2023, 1:28 a.m.

Appreciate the effort of making recipe. Following exactly as recipe, muffins had way too overpowering taste of flour.

PUL Team - July 12, 2023, 7:36 a.m.

Hey Athena, thanks for taking the time to share your experience with the muffins. We're so sorry to hear! In case you used cup measurements, it can help to ensure that the flour isn't too packed in the cup, but rather, gently spooned into the measuring cup and levelled. This will ensure that not too much flour is added 🙂

Rikardo and Patrik - July 10, 2023, 6:58 p.m.

Delicious cupcakes! 100% recommend 😋

Chris F - July 3, 2023, 9:07 p.m.

I made these yesterday and the taste is great but mine were also a bit gummy. Baked until toothpick was clean but think I’ll try adding flax eggs to see if that improves texture. If not, will go to AP flour/whole wheat combo.

PUL Team - July 5, 2023, 4:01 a.m.

Hey Chris, thanks for sharing your experience with the muffins. In case it helps, if you don't bake the muffins long enough or if we mix the batter too much, they can become gummy. Oat flour can also sometimes make baked goods gummy when they're warm, but the texture tends to improve as they cool down 🤗

Laura - April 2, 2023, 3:59 p.m.

These muffins are sooo good!! Can't stop eating them :) thank you!!
I have replaced sugar with a smaller amount of coconut sugar.

PUL Team - April 2, 2023, 6:49 p.m.

Thank you for sharing your experience with the muffins, Laura 🙂

Orlanne - March 23, 2023, 12:02 p.m.

Simple and quick recipe! I added more espresso powder because the one I had was not of best quality and it worked brilliantly.
The third time I made this recipe, I swapped chickpea flour for green lentil flour cause I didn't have any chickpea flour left, and it worked great again!
Thank you for this comforting recipe. I wish I could include the picture I took of these treats.

PUL Team - March 23, 2023, 8:09 p.m.

Oooo thanks for taking the time to share, Orlanne, it means so much 🤗

Orlanne - Jan. 12, 2023, 8:51 a.m.

I loved this easy treats! I didn't have any raising agent so I used soda bicarbonate and a bit of apple cider vinegar and it worked brilliantly. I may add more espresso powder next time though, mine was not that strong. I'll make it again, for sure!

PUL Team - Jan. 14, 2023, 6:59 p.m.

Thanks for taking the time to share your experience with it, Orlanne 😃

Mary Judiel - Nov. 20, 2022, 4:44 a.m.

I really love how Pick up Limes provided me how much grams should I use depending on the number of muffins I need! THANKS US SOO MUCH!!! Its now easy for me and no need to compute LOL!

PUL Team - Nov. 20, 2022, 7:53 p.m.

Aw thank you, Mary Judiel, we're so happy to hear!

JaWe - Sept. 15, 2022, 3:42 p.m.

The first time I made these, they were amazing and so light and fluffy. Everyone enjoyed them in my family.

The 2nd time I made them, they were very gummy and dense. I did not understand what I did differently. Taste is ok, but the texture is off-putting so no one really cared to have more.

I have now made it a 3rd time and it is in-between - not as dense and gummy, but not fluffy and light as the first time. It tastes good, but the light and fluffy texture is missing from the 1st time I made them.

Anyone have issues like that? Did I overmix the batter? Were my ripe bananas too big this time? Is my baking powder old? Did I not bake long enough?

PUL Team - Sept. 15, 2022, 9:14 p.m.

Hey there, JaWe! Thanks for sharing your experience with the muffins. Underbaking the muffins or overmixing the batter can lead to a gummy texture. Oat flour can also sometimes promote a gummy texture in baked goods when warm, but the texture gets better as the baked good cools.

We'd recommend being sure to bake the muffins until a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean and letting the baked muffins cool for 5 minutes before removing them from the muffin tins. We hope this helps for now, and do let us know how it goes if you give the muffins another try 😃

JaWe - Sept. 16, 2022, 10:06 a.m.

Thanks for the tips! I am definitely giving it another try as it is a great option for nut-allergy folks to also enjoy muffins.

PUL Team - Sept. 16, 2022, 4:33 p.m.

No problem, JaWe! In case you haven't seen them already and are interested, we have a few other nut-free muffins on our website here:… 🙂

Kayla Jane - Aug. 23, 2022, 2:18 a.m.

My whole family loves these muffins. I have to limit the so many a day. I love how simple it it to make them also

PUL Team - Aug. 23, 2022, 8:23 p.m.

We're so happy to hear the muffins are being enjoyed, Kayla, thank you!

Irene the Greek - Aug. 15, 2022, 3:32 p.m.

I can eat them even without baking them!

Veona - Aug. 12, 2022, 11:44 a.m.

Just perfect! Its unbelievably easy to make <3

Marianne - July 26, 2022, 10:23 p.m.

love these. so tasty and easy, and any number of toppings can be used in them.. i found dark pans gave them the nicest texture, with a firm-ish crust and soft center. yum. i'll make these all the time.

PUL Team - July 29, 2022, 2:51 a.m.

So glad they're being enjoyed, Marianne, and thanks for the tip!

Nina - July 19, 2022, 5:15 p.m.

Thank you for another deliciour recipe! I didn‘t have instant coffee so I swapped the milk for the same amount of freshly brewed espresso. And I used all purpose spelt flour (with a tsp baking powder and backing soda) instead of chickpea flour. Fluffy, moist, perfect!! You are awesome!!

PUL Team - July 20, 2022, 3:48 a.m.

Sounds delicious, Nina, thank you for taking the time to share your experience with this one!

Jac - June 28, 2022, 6:13 a.m.

Turned out perfect. Amazing warmed up for breakfast, served with coconut yogurt & fruit 😍🤩

PUL Team - June 28, 2022, 7:14 a.m.

Mmm sounds lovely, Jac, thanks!

Laurel - June 11, 2022, 7:46 a.m.

I made a batch of these intending to eat them for breakfast all week. My family ate them all in two days. Guess I’ll have to make more!

PUL Team - June 15, 2022, 3:05 a.m.

A sign to make more indeed! So happy the muffins were enjoyed, Laurel 🙂

Ellie - June 11, 2022, 3:27 a.m.

10/10! Even though I used white and buckwheat flour

Erica - June 9, 2022, 7:25 p.m.

I cannot get enough of all the banana muffin recipes. This one is so tasty! I love being able to pop them out of the freezer to have whenever I want!

PUL Team - June 10, 2022, 11:05 p.m.

So happy the muffins are being enjoyed, Erica!

Patrycja - April 8, 2022, 6:51 p.m.

Wow! I was a little bit sceptical since I have never baked with oat and/or chickpea flour but... They are so, so delicious. Like I'm in love. I substitute pecan for small amount of dark chocolate and it was a great idea! I recommend it if you don't have pecans. Thank you very much for this delicious recipe I will be making more for sure! :)

PUL Team - April 10, 2022, 9:44 p.m.

Mmm dark chocolate sounds lovely, Patrycja, thank you! So happy the muffins were enjoyed ☺️

Adair - April 3, 2022, 10:40 p.m.

I wanted to share some subs I made with these! I have made this recipe a bunch as written (except I use flax or oat milk instead of almond due to allergies) but I realized that my chickpea flour smelt off and was likely not useable anymore once I had already started the recipe. SIGH!

Instead, I did some playing around. I subbed in more oat flour and also added in ground flax, hemp seeds, maple syrup instead of sugar (about a tablespoon), cinnamon, and a little bit of vegan dark chocolate chunks.

Came out SO good! Not quite as airy maybe as with chickpea flour as a disclaimer, but moist and warming! If like me you want to cut back on the sugar, I suggest using a bit of maple syrup (added to the wet ingredients) or maybe vanilla. The bananas add so much natural sweetness that other times I have omitted sugar or additional sweeteners altogether!

PUL Team - April 3, 2022, 11:53 p.m.

Hello Adair, thanks a bunch for sharing all of the modifications! We're sure it will be helpful for others as well. So happy the muffins are being enjoyed ☺️

Stacy - March 13, 2022, 7:58 a.m.

These turned out deliciously moist and tasty!
I subbed in soy milk, coconut sugar, and walnuts on top, as that was what I had, and the muffins turned out great! I did use less sugar, ~70g, and they were still nice and sweet.
This was a wonderful recipe - I would never have thought to use chickpea flour in a sweet dish (I usually use it for omelettes). Thank you for such an interesting, eye-opening recipe!
Keep up the great work, Sadia and the PUL team.
Love from South-western Australia :) :) :)

PUL Team - March 13, 2022, 4:06 p.m.

Hi there Stacy! Thanks a bunch for sharing your modifications with us - we're so glad it was enjoyed. Sending an abundance of love to South-western Australia ✨

Mahima Kalla - March 12, 2022, 1:40 p.m.

I don't really like the flavour of coffee.
Can I swap it with cocoa powder 1:1 ratio? Or skip altogether? Thanks!

PUL Team - March 12, 2022, 7:41 p.m.

Hey Mahima! You can totally omit the coffee granules if desired. We've heard some positive reviews with substituting the coffee granules with other spices such as cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, and ginger or pumpkin pie spice. Cocoa powder sounds like an interesting idea too! It may give a slightly bitter taste, so we'd recommend dutch processed cocoa powder if possible 😊

Mahima Kalla - March 12, 2022, 10:31 p.m.

Thanks heaps! Appreciate the ideas!

Richa - March 9, 2022, 10:30 p.m.

Can this be made into a cake or in a bread baking tin

PUL Team - March 10, 2022, 9:53 p.m.

Hey Richa! That's a lovely question. We haven't tested it out but imagine you could! We'd recommend lowering the temperature of the oven by a bit (such as 350°F) and increasing the baking time until a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean. Let us know how it goes if you give it a try 😊

Viviana Silva - Nov. 13, 2022, 1:33 a.m.

Hola. Yo hice la receta hace unos 4 meses y no tenía molde para muffins. Así que la hice en molde para pan y como dice PUL me tomó un poco más de tiempo. Pero salió deliciosa! En este momento la estoy volviendo a hacer (había muchas bananas en casa) pero en vez de café agregué cocoa en polvo. Vamos a ver cómo me quedan! Muchas gracias por las recetas, me encanta la forma en que las enseñan. Un saludo desde Colombia❤️

PUL Team - Nov. 13, 2022, 2:20 a.m.

Aw we're so happy to hear, Viviana! Sending lots of love to Colombia 🤗

Shilpa - March 9, 2022, 5 a.m.

wow it turn out sooooo good. I was a bit skeptical for Chickpea flour in muffin but it is great recipe...mine is looking same as yours....thanks a lot.
I have made quite a few of your recipes and just love it.Today only I made two of it, this one and candid pecans..👌
I will browse your website more and will make few more dishes..🙏

PUL Team - March 10, 2022, 8:06 a.m.

Awe we're so glad the muffins were enjoyed, Shilpa! Happy cooking ☺️

Lou - March 7, 2022, 6:34 p.m.

I just tried this recipe. This is so easy and delicious ! I was looking for a healthy snack for the afternoon at work and I think I've found the gem ! Thanks so much for this <3

PUL Team - March 9, 2022, 2:06 a.m.

Oh, Lou, we appreciate it so much! Thank you :)

Amanda - March 6, 2022, 6:41 p.m.

These muffins are great! I must have missed the note about not swapping out the chickpea flower for all-purpose flour because that's what I normally do and I haven't had any issues. I also add walnuts to them, gives a nice crunch. Thanks for the recipe!

PUL Team - March 7, 2022, 6:15 a.m.

Hey there, Amanda, thanks a bunch for sharing the insight with us! It's so appreciated. It seems that there are mixed reviews with all-purpose flour for this one, although we'll note this down in case we look into it further. Love the addition of walnuts too!

Pick up limes - Feb. 26, 2022, 4:33 p.m.

Hi my name is Charlotte I made the banana coffee muffins
On Saturday 26 of February for breakfast my husband and I enjoyed it
Thank you for you wonderful recipe

PUL Team - Feb. 26, 2022, 9:14 p.m.

Hi there, Charlotte, we're so happy to hear! It means so much :)

Veronica Mcville - Feb. 25, 2022, 2:51 a.m.

These very so easy to make and delicious !!! This will be a staple forever in my humble home!!!

PUL Team - Feb. 25, 2022, 4:26 a.m.

Aw we're so thrilled the muffins are being enjoyed, Veronica, thank you!

Veronica Mcville - Feb. 25, 2022, 2:50 a.m.

I just made these and they did not disappoint! Very tasty loved loved loved them!! Thank you sooooooo much, very blessed!!

Geeta - Feb. 10, 2022, 5:54 p.m.

Hi… Can you suggest any alternative flour for chickpea flour ?

PUL Team - Feb. 11, 2022, 12:59 a.m.

Hey Geeta! We haven't tested it out, but have heard some positive reviews with whole wheat flour. Perhaps some other ideas could be almond or oat flour. Let us know how it goes if you experiment with any substitutions 😃

Kelsey - Feb. 7, 2022, 11:56 p.m.

These were my first vegan muffin that I’ve tried and they are amazing! They were so easy to make and were so delicious (even though I forgot to put the coffee in)! My husband who is as picky as the fussiest toddler tried a bite knowing he isn’t a muffin lover and he actually really liked them too!! PUL is making my slow transition into veganism so doable!!

PUL Team - Feb. 8, 2022, 10:53 p.m.

We appreciate the kind words, Kelsey, it means so much! Wishing you all the best on your journey 🌻

Cindy - Jan. 21, 2022, 2:10 p.m.

WOW!! I am so overwhelmed with every recipe and informative information on your site!! I Love everything on every video and literally do not know where to start? Thank you for having such a Beautiful and healthy post because I thrive on eating and being healthy. You inspire me even more than I already am and hope you keep making these videos so Thank you again. If you had to give me one savory and sweet recipe of yours to start with which ones would you suggest first?

PUL Team - Jan. 21, 2022, 4:54 p.m.

Hey there, Cindy, awe thanks for the kind words. That's a suuuper hard question! Perhaps our one-pot creamy mushroom pasta (…) and one-bowl chocolate banana bread (…) may be fun to start with. Happy cooking ✨😃

Georgina - Jan. 11, 2022, 10:15 a.m.

Have been plant based for over 4 years now, and think these are my favourite breakfast item! So easy to make, easy to bulk produce and then freeze to have fresh ones then reheated in the air fryer each morning. I usually add twice or three times the coffee. Thanks so much for this recipe. Delicious. Also leaves me energised and not just more hungry or tired or too full (like a lot of breakfast items), just happily satisfied 😋

PUL Team - Jan. 12, 2022, 4:20 a.m.

Oh, Georgina, you're too kind! We're so thrilled the muffins are being enjoyed ☺️

Rms - Jan. 8, 2022, 10:16 p.m.

I didn't have chickpea floor so I sub'd all-purpose floor for it, but yeah.. they came out very dense, uncooked in the middle (I kept checking with a toothpick and putting them back in the oven, to no avail) and were kinda tasteless. They looked gorgeous and smelled great but... Maybe I did something wrong. Might try using just regular flour, as one commenter suggested. I do love your channel, though.

PUL Team - Jan. 10, 2022, 2:15 a.m.

Hi there, Rms! Thanks a bunch for taking the time to share your experience with this one. It's so appreciated to help us improve. Initially, we believed the substitute worked well, although it doesn't seem to consistently be the case for everyone. Due to this, we've gone in and removed all-purpose flour as an alternative. We're so sorry to hear the muffins weren't enjoyed and do hope if you're interested in using chickpea flour that they turn out better. They're one of our favourites! If not and you're interested in an alternative recipe, our Spiced Walnut & Fig Muffins use all-purpose flour:…. Thank you again, Rms, and happy baking 😊

Kalila - Jan. 5, 2022, 8:38 a.m.

Just made these and they smell and taste incredible!! 😍 I substituted the oat flour for gluten free all purpose flour and used less baking powder!x They rose so well and are so fluffy!!xx Definitely making these again, thank you❤️

PUL Team - Jan. 6, 2022, 5:02 a.m.

Woohoo! Thanks for sharing your experience with it, Kalila 😃

Ecem - Dec. 12, 2021, 4:27 p.m.

It's so easy and yummy. It's also mess-free :)
I really love your recipes and I watch them whenever I want to feel better :) They are so therapeutic for me, is it weird? :)
Love you

PUL Team - Dec. 13, 2021, 8:20 a.m.

Aww not weird at all, Ecem - it means so much to hear 🙂 Thanks for helping make the PUL community so special 💚

Diana - Dec. 11, 2021, 10:26 p.m.

I made these this morning, ground my own oat flower and used monk fruit sugar instead of sugar. They are very substantial and filling; I was pleasantly surprised for a gluten-free muffin. I have been making muffins for years and while these aren’t as light as my usual banana muffins, they’re more filling and more nutritious so I could only manage 2. Just discovered you last night; watched a bunch of your YouTube videos when I couldn’t sleep. Glad to have discovered you!

Aw welcome to the PUL community, Diana! Thanks for sharing your twists for this one 🤗

Natasa - Dec. 10, 2021, 1:59 p.m.

Great recipe, so easy to make!
I used measurements with only 2 bananas, and I used only all purpose flour, choped dark chocolate into the dough and baked for 17 minutes. Muffins turned out so soft and delicious. Thanks!

PUL Team - Dec. 11, 2021, 9:21 p.m.

Lovely modifications, Natasa - we're so happy the muffins were enjoyed 😃

Shani - Dec. 7, 2021, 11:45 a.m.

Made these last night and wow! didn't expect it to turn out this well considering the ingredients. Highly highly recommended.

PUL Team - Dec. 8, 2021, 1:33 a.m.

Aw it means so much to hear, Shani - thank you!

Susi - Dec. 4, 2021, 8:58 a.m.

The Chickpea flour is very overpowering. I did enjoy the cinnamon and sugar combination.

PUL Team - Dec. 4, 2021, 10:41 p.m.

Hey there, Susi, we're sorry to hear the flavour didn't come out as expected! Were the ingredients and portion sizes followed as outlined in the recipe? We'd love to help get to the bottom of it if possible 😊

pieplant - Dec. 2, 2021, 1:12 p.m.

These are so so good! I added some dark chocolate too, which i really recomend. Thaks so much for this amazing recipe!

PUL Team - Dec. 2, 2021, 5:28 p.m.

Mmm love the idea to add dark chocolate, thank you, Pieplant 😍

Allie - Nov. 1, 2021, 10:44 p.m.

These are epic! They do not taste gluten free in the slightest! I used soy milk instead of almond milk because that's what I had. I also added 1/2 cup chocolate chips to the batter and sprinkled pumpkin pie spice mixed with granulated sugar on top. Unreal. Will definitely be making again and again.

PUL Team - Nov. 4, 2021, 2:56 a.m.

So happy the muffins are being enjoyed, Allie, and thanks for sharing the adjustments!

Lorna Yonés - Oct. 26, 2021, 5:11 p.m.

Just made this recipe with oat flour and whole wheat flour instead of chickpea flour (I didn't have). I also used ground cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, and ginger instead of coffee (I made it with my 4 yr old) and it turned out great! My preschooler was so happy baking this with me. Even just putting the pecan on top was something exiting for him. lol I'm a homeschooler mom, so this recipe was perfect to have him in the kitchen with me. Thank you Sadia and PUL team!

PUL Team - Oct. 27, 2021, 2:19 a.m.

Oo thanks a bunch for sharing your experience with this one, Lorna, it's so appreciated! Hugs to you and your little one 😃

Mary - Oct. 18, 2021, 1:02 a.m.

I just made these tonight and substituted the chickpea flour with all purpose. And I put two pecans on top because I love them. Turned out perfect and delicious! Thank you for another great recipe.

PUL Team - Oct. 18, 2021, 1:44 a.m.

Mmm sounds delicious, Mary, thank YOU for the kindness 🤗

Rebecca - Oct. 13, 2021, 5:08 p.m.

I cut the recipe in half (used one large mashed banana) for 6 muffins, and when I tasted the batter, I was skeptical these would turn out. The batter was on the bitter side. I used a walnut halve and four chocolate chips on top with the cinnamon sugar. Omg I just ate two! These are quite tasty. I’m wondering if you could make pumpkin muffins m using the same base recipe but subbing about I cup pumpkin purée for the banana and using pumpkin pie spices in the batter instead of coffee granules? Really good recipe, thank you.

PUL Team - Oct. 14, 2021, 3:16 a.m.

Hi Rebecca! Thanks for sharing your experience with this one. The pumpkin version sounds like a lovely idea 🎃 Perhaps half a banana with half a cup of pumpkin puree may be a good starting point for six muffins in case the pumpkin adds too much moisture? Do let us know if you experiment with it!

Rebecca Pettiford - Oct. 14, 2021, 4:39 p.m.

I just polished off another two of these banana coffee muffins. They are so darn good! I noticed I have another overripe banana in the fridge. Normally I'd freeze it for a smoothie, but I know how I'll be using it! I am really surprised that the chickpea flour doesn't interfere with the yumminess.

Margaret - Oct. 9, 2021, 4:08 p.m.

Pickuplimes never fails to make delicious recipes! I made this last night and it is SO yummy! Hopefully, it'll last me all week ;)

PUL Team - Oct. 9, 2021, 11:57 p.m.

So happy the muffins are being enjoyed, Margaret! Thank you :)

Louise Magnusson🇸🇪 - Oct. 8, 2021, 8:15 a.m.

I’ve read all previous comments and have understood that the chemistry of this recipe is sensitive😮‍💨👩🏼‍🔬. Nevertheless, I dared to substitute some ingredients as I didn’t have the default ditto at home.

I used oatmilk, warm pressed rapeseed oil (thus no flavour), the same volume of spelt flour instead of oat flour, chickpea flour, granulated sugar, and Nescafé instant coffee. Just mashed the banana, poured in the wet ingredients first, and added the wheat flour and baking powder last. I omitted the sugar sprinkle, but put the cinnamon inside the batter. Topped of with walnuts. I used muffin paper liners and baked the muffins for 17 min at 200 degrees Celsius.

They came out amazing! I put them in the freezer for long term storage. I ate one today for breakfast together with diced apples (to honour the autumn): no problem to thaw overnight in fridge and then heat it in the microwave at 360 W for 1,5 min. The muffin was so moist, fluffy (the baking powder and gluten had done their magic 🪄), and it’s delicious when warmed up as the coffee flavour became more distinct. I liked the chickpea flour in this recipe, as it’s otherwise difficult to use this bitter flour. Perfectly balanced by the sugar 👌🏻

Wonderful option for weekend breakfasts!!

PUL Team - Oct. 9, 2021, 8:32 p.m.

Hey there, Louise! The food chemistry with this one is indeed a bit delicate. Thank you for sharing your modifications with us 😃 Very lovely substitutions. Do let us know how it goes if you give the recipe a try with the other ingredients!

Nandini uppadhyay - Oct. 7, 2021, 3:51 p.m.

loved it. i made them in air fryer though

Sanjana - Oct. 4, 2021, 4:39 p.m.

Love the recipe, can share few recipes with no granulated sugar???

PUL Team - Oct. 4, 2021, 6:38 p.m.

Hey there, Sanjana, thanks for the request. In the meantime, you may find the filter feature on our recipe page helpful if you haven't already seen it. For example, filtering snacks and excluding sugar here:… 😊

Merve - Sept. 28, 2021, 5:23 p.m.

This has become one of my favorite muffin recipe! I use pecan/walnuts, both turn out great.
Thank you.

Liz - Sept. 28, 2021, 3:27 p.m.

I am at a "for dummies" level of cooking at this point in my life and your channel has been a life changer, you are helping me build up my confidence for cooking/baking things. More specifically for this recipe, I didn't have a muffin tin so I poured the mix onto a greased baking tray and a lovely little cake-muffin hybrid came out - delish!! I just had it fresh out of the oven with some yoghurt on the side. Thank you so much! x

PUL Team - Sept. 29, 2021, 7:08 p.m.

We appreciate the kind words so much, Liz! All the best on your journey with cooking 🤗

Catarina - Sept. 28, 2021, 12:04 p.m.

I tried to make these and they are just perfect! The pecans really make a nice crunch! 5/5!

Archa - Sept. 24, 2021, 10:26 p.m.

Hii.. I love the coffee flavor and it is a great idea for a gluten-free snack. But I don't have a muffin dish, do you think I can bake it in a loaf pan and cut it? Never made muffins before so sorry if this is a stupid question. Love you as always <3

PUL Team - Sept. 26, 2021, 1:44 a.m.

Hey Archa! No such thing as a silly question 😊 We've had a few positive reviews with using baking dishes rather than a muffin tin. Although we haven't tested out a loaf pan, we'd recommend lowering the oven temperature to 350°F and increasing the baking time until a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean. Let us know how it goes if you give it a try!

Tia Z - Sept. 23, 2021, 7:53 p.m.

These are great! I made them and they were gone within about 3 days. I have Celiacs and my daughter has non-gluten wheat sensitivity, plus we're trying to eat less animal products. I often come here to find recipes to expand my repertoire of plant based meals. The hardest thing for me has been to come up with alternative breakfast ideas since I am allergic to a bunch of random but frequently included ingredients. These muffins are one of the rare things that have nothing in them I'll get sick from, plus they are great for quick breakfasts with a bowl of yogurt. Super easy, super tasty, and a healthy snack as well!

PUL Team - Sept. 24, 2021, 7:16 p.m.

Hi Tia, so happy the muffins are being enjoyed! It means so much☺️ In case you haven't seen it already and are interested, the "allergen" and "exclude ingredients" filter may be helpful on our recipe search page. Such as filtering gluten-free with breakfast here:…

Barbara - Sept. 20, 2021, 3:20 p.m.

These muffins are just as good as they are easy to make! I've just had one, straight out of the oven and goodness me... that little sprinkle of sugar and cinnamon on top of it, is just Heaven! I am vegan and eat gluten-free: it's very rare to find such good snacks/desserts that are also easy to make. So thank you a million times for your recipes. I'm a huge fan and I'm not ready to leave !!!!

PUL Team - Sept. 21, 2021, 2:39 a.m.

Awe you're too kind, Barbara! Thank you for being here and sharing the kind words ☺️

PUL Team - Sept. 21, 2021, 2:39 a.m.

Awe you're too kind, Barbara! Thank you for being here and sharing the kind words ☺️

Maddie - Sept. 15, 2021, 7:42 a.m.

Hi these look amazing and I really want to make them but I just had a quick question about the amount of bananas I should use. Is there a measurement in cups of how much I should add? In the videos the bananas Sadia used looked like a medium size and I have large ones at home so I wanted to know if I could get a more precise measurement of the amount to get the perfect consistency!

PUL Team - Sept. 15, 2021, 5:06 p.m.

Hi Maddie, thanks for the question. We indeed used medium bananas, which were around 120 grams each. Based on the USDA, this should work out to approximately 1 and 1/3 cups. It should be fine if a tad more or a little less is added 🙂 We hope you enjoy the muffins!

Barbara - Sept. 20, 2021, 3:37 p.m.

Hello! I only had 2 large bananas at home and it worked perfectly fine :)

Jess - Sept. 13, 2021, 3:39 a.m.

Super easy to make and yummy! I added slightly more coffee than what the recipe said because I'm a huge coffee fan, which worked well. The pecans on top are the perfect addition to tie all flavours together. Thank you for making vegan baking so enjoyable and healthy!

PUL Team - Sept. 14, 2021, 1:39 a.m.

We appreciate this so much, Jess! So happy you're enjoying the muffins 🤗

Nat - Sept. 12, 2021, 8:17 a.m.

What a great snack idea! I enjoyed these and will do it again. Great to bring into work to share with others. I enjoy your recipes and YouTube channel. Thank you for your beautiful photos and balanced meals.

PUL Team - Sept. 12, 2021, 8:06 p.m.

Mmm so kind of you to share the muffins, Nat! Thank you for being here and supporting PUL 🥰

Aesha - Sept. 2, 2021, 12:11 p.m.

Wow these muffins came out great! I was a bit nervous about the chick pea flour since it was the first time using in a sweet recipe but aside from the color I couldn’t tell any difference. The instant coffee gave it a different taste but I liked it and so did my 2 year old so win win 🏆 😋

PUL Team - Sept. 3, 2021, 4:15 a.m.

We're so thrilled the muffins we enjoyed, Aesha, thank you!

Kayla - Sept. 1, 2021, 3:30 a.m.

Love the simplicity of this recipe! I was at first a little unsure about the chickpea flour because I have found it to have a very distinct taste in anything I've made with it but you don't taste it at all in these muffins. They are very yummy and perfect for a quick breakfast on the run. My family and I love the pecans on them so I think next time I'll put some chopped pecans in the batter as well. Oh, and I went a little stronger on the coffee and it was absolute perfection! Thank you!!

PUL Team - Sept. 1, 2021, 4:31 p.m.

Aw this is so lovely, Kayla, thank YOU for taking the time to share the incredible review 🤗

Isa - Aug. 30, 2021, 1:57 p.m.

I followed the recipe but I got 6 servings only. I mean still enough for me :) I also added some cacao and will make them again. Love your blog!

PUL Team - Aug. 31, 2021, 1:27 a.m.

So glad you enjoyed the recipe, Isa! Do you know what size your muffin tin is? We suspect one culprit may have been if the wells are larger than a standard muffin tin 🙂

Adria - Aug. 29, 2021, 3:14 p.m.

Delicious! Would definitely make again.

Fabia - Aug. 26, 2021, 8:02 a.m.

I wanted a yummy snack and only had some ingredients but managed to substituted the rest: Regular Wheat Flour for the Chickpea Flour; Vanilla Essence (not extract) for the Coffee Granules; Cow's milk for the Almond Milk.

Not exactly vegan, but oh, oh OH so delicious!!! They turned out perfectly and even inspired me to turn an unfinished portion of superfood-loaded, mixed-berry Oats I made that day, into a new batch of muffins!

Thank you for the amazing content! You keep inspiring me to adopt a more plant-based lifestyle.

PUL Team - Aug. 28, 2021, 6:37 p.m.

Hi there, Fabia! So glad you enjoyed the muffins. We appreciate the kind words so much 😊

Arpana - Aug. 24, 2021, 8:27 p.m.

Absolutely loved these muffins. Its so hard to find a high-protein, vegan and gluten free sweet treat!! Iv made 3 batches in 2 weeks and it's come out perfectly everytime!! THANK YOU!!!

Sage - Aug. 17, 2021, 4:40 a.m.

I'm soo sad! I used all of the ingredients suggested but the muffins turned out a bit odd. They puffed up like a regular muffin but they ended up being a bit chewy and dry. I think that the instant coffee made the muffins taste funny and made them a bit on the bitter side and my family hated them because of it. I'll definitely be trying this recipe again but with different kinds of ingredients like a different instant coffee (I used decaf Nescafe) and maybe a different sugar (I used refined white sugar). I did notice that the instant coffee didn't dissolve like it was supposed to so next time I will mix it with the almond milk prior to mixing it with the bananas instead of afterwards. I also put walnuts on top instead of pecans because we didn't have any but they didn't go with the banana/coffee autumnal flavor at all. Although this didn't work out this first time around, I'm hopeful that they will be delicious if I try other ingredients! Recommendations/suggestions would be much appreciated! 😭💕

PUL Team - Aug. 18, 2021, 5:05 a.m.

Hey Sage, aw sorry to hear you didn't have the best experience with these muffins. May I ask if you measured in cups/Tbsp or did you use the mL/gram measurements? Did you also use both the oat flour and chickpea flour, or did you substitute either of them for another type of flour? I'm more than happy to offer some suggestions once I know a bit more - hope to have you trying the muffins again and enjoying them the next time 🥰

Oliwia - Aug. 13, 2021, 9:09 p.m.

Muffins are AMAZING! Thank you so much. I made tons of them for my Aunt's 50th birthday party and they all loved them!

PUL Team - Aug. 14, 2021, 6:49 a.m.

So kind of you to make them for your aunt, Oliwia, happiest of birthdays to them 💚

Dee - Aug. 13, 2021, 3:51 a.m.

For context, I made this with Oatmeal Flour , sub chickpea flour with All Purpose flour. I don’t recommend full sub with AP, as mentioned by PUL, diff gluten level, diff results

First Trial - failed, sad. Similar results to some of the comments, gummy/dense

Second Trial (out of sheer curiosity)- I tried this recipe the second time after some adjustments and it worked! My muffins came out yummy, fluffy and banana-ey. So hopefully this can help others as well

1. Use the weighted measurements (grams/ounces) whenever possible. Accuracy can be critical in baking, recently i realised my cheap measurement cups are not accurate. This will just prevent any unnecessary baking issues

2. Prevent overmixing: All purpose (AP) flour has higher gluten. First time I mixed according to the recipe, all in one go. Longer mixing made gluten more likely to develop, so if using AP, do the traditional way: mix wet ingredients in one bowl, dry ingredients in separate bowl. Then FOLD GENTLY in PARTS 2/3 dry mixture, then remaining 1/3. I srsly think this part is crucial for texture

3. Puree banana if possible: if you have a blender, use it to puree banana with milk and oil (steps 2-3) makes it more smooth and yummy

Side note: I used monkfruit sugar bc i’m diabetic, perfect sub, no issues. For diabetics looking to transition frm conventional baked goods and incorporate more fiber, i recommend this. Still flour and some sugar but wayyyyyyy better imo than a conventional muffin

PUL Team - Aug. 13, 2021, 6:29 a.m.

Hey there, Dee! Thanks a bunch for sharing your experimentation with us. It's super helpful 😃 We're so happy the muffins were enjoyed after the successful adjustments ✨

Sherry - Aug. 10, 2021, 5:26 p.m.

Could I sub chickpea flour to Almond flour or coconut flour?

PUL Team - Aug. 11, 2021, 2:49 a.m.

Hi Sherry! We haven't tested it out but we've seen some good reviews with almond flour in place of chickpea flour. Do let us know if you give it a try :)

Elisabeth - Aug. 9, 2021, 8:58 p.m.

These muffins are so delicious! Thank you!

Sarah - Aug. 9, 2021, 2:41 p.m.

I was a bit worried after popping these in the oven as I could only find olive oil in my house and I took a taste of the batter and the Chickpea flower had an overwhelming taste, but they turned out great! Some comments said not to use liners and make sure to grease, but I just used silicone liners, let them cool about 5 minutes and they popped out easily! They're not too sweet which I really like. Next time I might add a little more instant coffee, but that's just personal preference :).

PUL Team - Aug. 10, 2021, 3:07 a.m.

We're so happy the muffins were enjoyed! We appreciate you sharing your experience with the muffins so much, Sarah 😃

Eni - Aug. 6, 2021, 3:54 p.m.

Absolutely in love with this recipe! The texture, the was perfect! I also added some chopped nuts and chocolate and it turned out heavenly.

Emy - Aug. 5, 2021, 9:53 p.m.

These muffins are really nice, they're quite thick and chewy but that's really enjoyable. They are also not too sweet at all, which bothers me about a lot of "breakfast" banana bread and muffin recipes I have tried previously, this will definitely be my go-to now. The coffee is also a really lovely little kick!

PUL Team - Aug. 6, 2021, 1:40 a.m.

So glad you're enjoying the muffins, Emy! Thanks for taking the time to share 🌻

Eunice - Aug. 3, 2021, 4:32 p.m.

I made this recipe in a 9x11 inch baking pan and they came out great! I did not have any muffin tins so for someone looking at this recipe and also does not have any muffin tins I highly recommend giving it a go! I reduced the temperature to 350 degrees F and baked a little longer just eye balling and doing a toothpick test. I do recommend sizing down to a 9x9 pan if possible. I also did not have chickpea flour so instead I used gluten free flour and they came out great! Even after all the alterations I had the recipe still holds. I am definitely going to be making this again!

PUL Team - Aug. 5, 2021, 4:49 a.m.

We're so thrilled to hear the recipe was enjoyed, Eunice! Thank you for sharing how you adapted this one :)

Avis - Aug. 3, 2021, 12:42 p.m.

Oh wow...these are heavenly with the guilt...can't believe ingredients like besan and oat flour can produce something so delish!!! Thanks team and a special compliment to the way you present the videos

PUL Team - Aug. 5, 2021, 4:17 a.m.

Thank YOU, Avis, for being here and sharing the lovely review 🥰🌻

Lotte - Aug. 1, 2021, 4:33 p.m.

Made this yesterday and absolutely loved it! Can't wait for my next cup of coffee ;-)

Aisling - July 30, 2021, 8:17 p.m.

Absolutely delicious, and such an easy recipe to follow....even for a novice.
I've made them twice now....they go down a treat!!

Sofie - July 30, 2021, 2:12 p.m.

Tried this with all purpose flour and I ground the oats. Came out like rocks :(

PUL Team - Aug. 3, 2021, 9:53 p.m.

Hey there, Sofie! Did you substitute both chickpea and oat flour with all-purpose? We'd recommend opting to substitute just the chickpea flour rather than both as we haven't had a chance to test it out with only all-purpose flour. All-purpose flour has gluten and behaves a bit differently than oat flour when cooked so if opting to use it, adding less (maybe about 1 - 1.25 cups of flour) in place of the oat flour would likely work better than a direct substitution. Do let us know if you try it out again or have any other questions ☺️

Charlotte - July 29, 2021, 9:44 p.m.

We loved this recipe! ❤ We liked the fact that the banana-coffee flavour was pretty subtle and thought the toppings were the piece-de-resistance! They have a lovely texture too and I will definitely be making them again. 🙌🏻🥰

Maria - July 29, 2021, 6:36 p.m.

Loved this recipe! I added a grated carrot as well, so it’s a perfect combo of banana bread and carrot cake :) Personally, I do find it kind of sweet, so will probably leave out the sugar next time.

Dajana - July 29, 2021, 12:27 p.m.

I love this recipe! I made it for today's breakfast and my boyfriend ate half a dozen of them :D So it must be great!

The only thing I didn't like was granulated sugar, I think there are healthier alternatives out there so I used coconut sugar (might try with stevia once). It would be great if you included those healthier options for people who either cannot consume sugar or just don't want to due to clean diet. :)

Keep it up, can't wait to try something new! :)

Eunice - July 29, 2021, 1:05 a.m.

Hi Sadie, really grateful for what you do. You give the most useful health and nutrition advise is the best way possible. Keep up the good work.

Ps: Is the pick up limes e-cook book still available for purchase. I can’t seem to find it on here.

PUL Team - July 29, 2021, 7:14 p.m.

Thank you for the kind words and interest in a PUL cookbook, Eunice, it means so much! Our 3-year anniversary e-cookbook containing all of our recipes up until the end of December 2019 can be found here: 🌻

Eunice Peterson - July 30, 2021, 10:01 a.m.

Give it a thought?

Best wishes.

PUL Team - July 30, 2021, 11:23 a.m.

We won't be updating it, but we're working on something else exciting at the moment 😉 hope to be able to share what it is in the next few months!

Moraa - July 28, 2021, 9:16 p.m.

Sadia I am so grateful for you and all that you do. I don’t know how to express my gratitude for everything I have learnt from you. Thank you for yet another fantastic recipe (I am just enjoying these). Hugs.

PUL Team - July 30, 2021, 11:22 a.m.

You're too sweet, Moraa, thank you for being here 🤗 so glad you enjoyed the muffins!

Annette Panuco - July 28, 2021, 5:59 p.m.

Loved this recipe Sadia! As a coffee lover, I appreciate the aroma these muffins gave my kitchen. The flavor of them is well balanced (as always) with your recipes. Not too sweet but just the right amount! Thank you so much for sharing! I had a PUL moment with my coffee and muffin all set ut soo cute ☺️

PUL Team - July 30, 2021, 11:22 a.m.

So glad you enjoyed the muffins, Annette 🤗 thanks for taking the time to share!

Leo - July 28, 2021, 5:32 p.m.

Hi, I would like to know if both, the oat flour and chickpea flour can be substitute with all-purpose flour? I do not have any oats.

PUL Team - July 29, 2021, 6:40 p.m.

Hey Leo, great question! We haven't tried it ourselves, so I can't say for sure if it'll work out. All-purpose flour has gluten and behaves a bit differently than oat flour when cooked. If you do try it out, I'd recommend adding less (maybe about 1 - 1.25 cups of flour) in place of the oat flour. If you do try it out, let us know how it goes for you 😊

Amar - July 28, 2021, 3:48 p.m.

Hey Sadia, do you know any way to store these a bit longer? Maybe freeze them? I- eh made them, they are delicious, but then I realised I live alone and now have 15 muffins to go through in 3 days

PUL Team - July 29, 2021, 6:34 p.m.

Hey Amar, we didn't get a chance to try it ourselves but I imagine these will freeze well. If you do try it out, do let us know how it goes 🤓

Brit - July 28, 2021, 12:44 p.m.

I made the mistake of using muffin liners/baking cups instead of greasing the muffin tin (I was lazy). I lost a quarter of my muffin to the liners, stuck like crazy. Will definitely try the recipe again though, texture and taste was amazing!

PUL Team - July 29, 2021, 6:06 p.m.

Aw darn, so sorry to hear, Brit! We've found muffins stick less to liners when cooled if that helps in the meantime. Glad the recipe was enjoyed regardless ☺️

Dee - July 30, 2021, 1:20 p.m.

Hey Brit, this happened to me too , i waited an hr for it to cool and still stuck 😂🙈 i split the batter in half and did the second bake without liners (+ greased the pan) and came out fine. Myb it’s jst the style?

I definitely have to retry the recipe though.. 😭my muffins came out gummy and dense *cry* i may have overmixed the batter. i also read that oat-based muffins can have gummy patches but still need to figure out how to prevent it..if anyone has tips let me know!

Christyna - July 27, 2021, 8:37 p.m.

Just made these about an hour ago. They were absolutely delicious. My 9 year old son also loved them. This is definitely going in my baked goods recipe rotation. Thank you for an amazing recipe, PUL! ❤️

Lauren - July 27, 2021, 4:07 p.m.

Another great recipe from PickUpLimes! These are so yummy and easy to make. I subbed out the chickpea flour for plain as didn't have any and walnuts for pecans and they came out perfect. A great way to mix up regular banana bread. Thank you Sadia!

PUL Team - July 27, 2021, 6:13 p.m.

Thank you for sharing, Lauren, so happy you enjoyed this one 🤩

Viktoria - July 27, 2021, 1:19 p.m.

It is a cool alternative for a banana bread. I am personally not a big fan of the texture of the banana bread, so this recipe wouldn't go to my favourites. But for anyone who likes banana bread, I am sure you will love these too. Easy to make as well!

Stephanie - July 27, 2021, 2:47 a.m.

These came out so pretty! And super tasty. :)

L - July 26, 2021, 3:48 p.m.

Not gonna lie, I had pretty low expectations for these. Chickpea flour? Oat flour? ... Yum? They turned out great though! They were light and fluffy and sweet and my husband thought they were great until I told him what was in them -- and even then, he was willing to admit that these were legitimately good despite his preconceived notions of what they should taste like based on the ingredients. I would definitely make these again and even serve them to family (gotta keep on proving that vegan food isn't gross!)

I split the batter and made half without coffee, and I sprinkled some hemp hearts on top, but otherwise I made them based on the directions. My coconut oil ended up solidifying into chunks a bit because my bananas were frozen, but that didn't seem to affect the end product.

Aw this means so much, L, thank you for the review! We're so thrilled the muffins exceeded expectations ☺️

Dani - July 26, 2021, 12:40 p.m.

Very easy to make. I used less sugar and whole almonds instead of pecans (since that’s what I had on hand) and turned out really well. I prepped it as a snack for my work week but already most have been eaten by my family. They’re picky eaters so I guess this muffin really resonated with them.

PUL Team - July 27, 2021, 6:15 p.m.

So glad to hear, Dani, thanks for taking the time to share the review :)

This recipe is greaaat. Just tried it out and it made delicious muffins, exactly what I wanted. Thank you so much, Sadia and the team!!

Made this muffin over the weekend.. turned out yum🤤. Replaced oat flour with almond flour as my husband is allergic to gluten. He absolutely loved it. Will be making again without coffee for my baby.. 😍

Thanks for sharing your experience with the recipe, K!

Hello, I am from Nepal.
Thanks to pickup limes, i started eating healthy + nutritional + delicious foods.
This muffin was super easy to make, delicious and moist.
Definitely going to make this again and again 🙂.

PUL Team - July 27, 2021, 5:18 p.m.

So glad you enjoyed them, Astha! Hugs to Nepal 🤗

Mona-Lisa - July 25, 2021, 3:03 p.m.

Delicious and moist!
I used the doubled amount of coffee, since my boyfriend is a "coffeeholic". And they are great!
Here in Germany, we have some kind of mixed chewy-toffee-swirl-bonbons that I kinds love but never buy. One of those tastes like banana-toffee, another one like coffee-toffee, and these muffins are like the cake lovechild of those two.
10/10 will bake again!

PUL Team - July 27, 2021, 2:07 a.m.

We appreciate this so much, Mona-Lisa, lots of love to Germany ✨🌻

Kim Bresseleers - July 25, 2021, 2:36 p.m.

Just made these muffins and they are so delicious and easy to make! A must-try 😍

Beth - July 25, 2021, 12:24 p.m.

This is going to become a staple snack in our house! Just based on what I had in the cupboard, I swapped pecans for walnuts, almond milk for soya milk and coconut oil for canola oil and they turned out perfectly.

PUL Team - July 27, 2021, 1:24 a.m.

Thanks for sharing your substitutions, Beth, it's super helpful ☺️

Alessia - July 25, 2021, 11:01 a.m.

Hi from Italy!! :)

Thank you for sharing, Alessia! Hugs to Italy 🤗

Rachel - July 24, 2021, 11:30 p.m.

So delicious and moist and healthy!!! 100% will make again, and the little ones loved it too

Priveda Bhiwa - July 24, 2021, 8:49 p.m.

I've tried this recipe and I LOVED IT! So did everyone!!! Easy to make and bake. So soft and tasty! The oat flour is what made the whole difference for me. Thank you!!!

PUL Team - July 26, 2021, 8:06 p.m.

So thrilled you enjoyed the muffins, Priveda, thank YOU!

Haz - July 24, 2021, 12:54 p.m.

Great recipe! I made these yesterday intending to make 16 but the recipe managed 19 (a good thing bcs half of them were going to my friend for her birthday so more for me)! I also swapped chickpea flour with plain flour, and almond milk with oat milk and it worked fine! :)

PUL Team - July 25, 2021, 9:34 p.m.

Thanks a bunch for sharing this with us, Haz! So honoured the muffins were part of the special occasion 🤩

Patricia - July 23, 2021, 6:30 p.m.

Muffins look gerat <3
Can i use frozen bananas ?

PUL Team - July 25, 2021, 8:51 p.m.

Hey there, Patricia! You may find it harder to mash the bananas. We'd recommend letting them thaw beforehand for better results. Do let us know if you give the recipe a try 🤩

Dana - July 23, 2021, 5:28 p.m.

Great muffins! I used decaf coffee so I could share these with my kids--great success! Very easy to make.

Oshini - July 23, 2021, 10:11 a.m.

Hi sadia😊,
can u pls tell if it is ok to use whole milk instead of vegan milk? We rarely find any vegan milk brands in here and even those are hella expensive😟

ari - July 24, 2021, 4:42 p.m.

Clearly not Sadia lol, but I personally think it doesn't make that much of a difference the kind of milk you use: for instance, I constantly switch regular milk for a plant one and it always works wonders, so if you do the opposite I think it would work just fine!

Namisha Mehta - July 23, 2021, 9:06 a.m.

Hi, tried this recipe today for breakfast and it turned out absolutely amazing! You made my day! <3
P.S: Visited the website for the first time and love it!!

PUL Team - July 25, 2021, 7:02 p.m.

Thanks so much, Namisha! And so glad you enjoyed the muffins 😊

Eliz - July 23, 2021, 1:30 a.m.

Hi from Brazil :)
I'll absolutely make this one on the weekend 😍. I'm not vegan, but I LOVE your recipes and of course your carisma! Thanks you all so much for putting all of this together and share with us. You work is flawless and the recipes DELICIOUS!

PUL Team - July 25, 2021, 2:33 a.m.

You're too kind, Eliz - thank you for being here! Lots of love to Brazil ♥️

Gabrielle - July 23, 2021, 12:55 a.m.

I would love to give these a go– is there any possible substitute for the sugar? Would coconut sugar or maple syrup (and reduced milk) work?

PUL Team - July 25, 2021, 2:24 a.m.

Hi Gabrielle! We haven't tested it out so we can't say for certain, although we imagine it could work. Do let us know if you experiment with it 😊

Gabrielle - July 25, 2021, 6:33 p.m.

I used coconut sugar! Consistency-wise, it was totally fine, but definitely not sweet at all (which I don't mind). If I was serving them to others I would maybe add a few pieces of dark chocolate or a splash of maple syrup!

Janet D - July 22, 2021, 10:16 p.m.

Made the banana coffee muffins right after I saw this video; used coffee grinds from my cup this morning! less sugar, and put a walnut on top. Delicious!!!

Kianna - July 22, 2021, 9:09 p.m.

Just made these, and they're the perfect morning snack with coffee! OMG 😍 they're not too sweet and the coffee flavor is not too overpowering. I added some dairy-free chocolate chips to the tops of a few of them, and I'm in love! Even with making my own oat flour, they're still super quick and simple. 10/10

PUL Team - July 24, 2021, 2:11 a.m.

So thrilled you enjoyed the muffins, Kianna!

Mimmi - July 22, 2021, 9:06 p.m.

Omg just made these and they are HEAVENLY! Perfect breakfast food or snack!

Izzi - July 22, 2021, 8:21 p.m.

As a long time follower, one of the things I love most about your videos is that you always offer options to the ingredients you are using. Often I don't have some of the items on hand, so the substitution suggestions are spot on -and really appreciated!

PUL Team - July 23, 2021, 5:08 a.m.

Thank you for the lovely feedback and support, Izzi, it means so much!

Eunice - July 22, 2021, 8:12 p.m.

Hi! I do not have cupcake tins:( could I possibly use a square brownie tin and cut it into squares?

PUL Team - July 23, 2021, 3:41 a.m.

Hi Eunice, we haven't tested it out but imagine you could! We'd recommend lowering the temperature of the oven by a bit (such as 350°F) and increasing the baking time until a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean. Let us know how it goes if you give it a try 😃
