  • For the wet ingredients, place the mashed bananas, vanilla extract, coconut sugar, eggs, and coconut milk in a bowl. Mix until thoroughly combined. It is okay if there are small chunks of mashed banana pieces swimming in the mix.
  • Add in the wet ingredients into the dry ones. Stir until throughly combined.
  • Stir in the walnuts and make sure that they are evenly distributed within the batter.
  • Scoop the batter into the muffin tins (they will be pretty full) and bake for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle of one of the muffins comes out clean.
