These lemon coconut muffins are rich in flavor and are topped with a lemony glaze that will satisfy any sweet tooth. They are made with Greek Yogurt, coconut flour, oat flour and sweetened with maple syrup. 


  • 1 cup oat flour (see notes)
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 eggs, whisked
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 1 lemon, zested
  • 1/2 of a lemon, juiced (about 1 tbsp)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2/3 cup plain, 2% Greek Yogurt


  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 of a lemon, juiced (about 1 tbsp)
  • 1 cup shredded coconut flakes


  1. Preheat oven to 375F and prepare a muffin tin with liners. 
  2. In a large bowl combine oat flour, coconut flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a bowl. Mix to combine. 
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk the eggs and add melted coconut oil, maple syrup, lemon zest, lemon juice, vanilla and Greek Yogurt. Mix until no clumps are present. 
  4. Pour the wet mixture into the dry mixture and stir. The batter will be thick and sticky. Fill muffin tins about halfway full and place in the oven at 375F for 18 minutes. 
  5. While the muffins are baking, place the powdered sugar and other half of the lemon juice in a bowl and whisk to combine. Place the shredded coconut on a plate or a bowl. 
  6. Once the muffins are finished baking, allow to cool for 5 minutes. 
  7. Begin to ice the muffins by dipping the top of the muffin into the glaze and then rolling it in the shredded coconut flakes. 
  8. Recommend storing at room temperature in an airtight container. 


  • If you do not have oat flour, pulse regular rolled oats (or quick cooking) in a blender or food processor until fine, flour-like texture.
