Recipe: Mrs Parsons’ Gluten-Free Vegan Apple and Banana Muffins

If you’ve been missing these muffins (which make the Top 5 of the St John’s D.S.G. Kitchen’s “Most Requested” list), then you’re in for a treat: Mrs Parsons has shared her recipe with us!

Here is what you will need:


  • 230g gluten free flour
  • 150g brown sugar
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp bicarb
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 red apples
  • 3 bananas
  • 55ml coconut milk
  • 45ml coconut oil


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Line a muffin tray with cases.
  2. Core and peel 1 apple and cut into small cubes. Leave to one side.
  3. Mix the dry ingredients in a large bowl.
  4. In a separate bowl, mash the bananas until smooth, then add milk and oil and stir together.
  5. Combine the wet and dry ingredients, then add the apple cubes and give everything a really good mix.
  6. Pour the mixture into the muffin cases.
  7. Before baking, cut the remaining apple in half, core it then cut each half into thin slices. Top each muffin with a slice and a sprinkling of cinnamon.
  8. Bake for approximately 25 minutes until the muffins are golden and a knife inserted into the centre comes out clean.
