This healthy bran muffin recipe doesn’t contain white flour or refined sugars. It uses brown rice, gluten-free flour and coconut ingredients.



  • 1½ cups brown rice flour
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil
  • 1 egg
  • ⅔ cup coconut sugar
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup gluten-free flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • ½ cup raisins
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ cup pecans, chopped


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit, and line muffin tin with liners.
  2. Mix brown rice flour and coconut milk together in a bowl.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix oil, egg, coconut sugar and vanilla. Once combined, add to flour and coconut milk mixture.
  4. Fold in gluten-free flour and cinnamon.
  5. Add in remaining ingredients and mix until well incorporated.
  6. Spoon batter into lined muffin tins until 3/4 full and bake for 15–20 minutes.


  • For a sweeter muffin, add chocolate chips.
  • You can swap the pecans for another nut of your choosing.
  • Try another dried fruit in place of raisins if you’re looking for a different flavor, such as cherries.
