SCD Recipes

Decided to give this topic its own page, since recipes are pretty much the “stuff” of surviving on SCD. So here, at last, is the Banana Muffin recipe I mentioned in a previous post.

I’ve made these about four times now, and 3 out of 4 of those bakes came out just perfect. They even get eaten! Originally adapted from a recipe in the Muffin Bible, published by Penguin (http://www.penguin.co.nz/afa.asp?idWebPage=30233&ID=1788526&SID=858711552). I hope I am not breaching their copyright, by publishing my SCD-compliant version of their recipe. If anyone has any insights on this, I’d appreciate it if you leave a comment for me.

Banana and Ginger Muffins


  • 60g (2 oz) butter
  • 1 Tbsp honey
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 – 2 bananas mashed
  • 2C Almond Flour
  • 1C Coconut Flour
  • 2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 cup SCD yogurt
  • finely sliced walnuts (optional)


  • SCD french cream
  • honey and ground ginger to taste.

Mix liquid honey with softened butter, then add eggs and lightly mashed banana and yogurt. Combine Almond and Coconut Four with baking soda and ground ginger.

Mix wet and dry ingredients and add the walnuts now if you are using them.

Bake in prepared muffin pans at 200 deg C (390 deg F) for 15 minutes.

 The reason I am so stoked with this recipe is that they come out “dry” as opposed to soggy, which is what many of my SCD efforts have been.

The ginger flavoured French Cream is just yummy as a topping. Bon appetit everyone! 🙂

  1. Do you think you could make this recipe completely with coconut flour? I’m sensitive to almond flour. And I miss banana bread so much! This would be perfect.

  2. I dont see why not. I think all coconut flour might make for a drier mix so maybe you’d want to play around with either liquid or butter quantities. Lots of things in SCD take a lot of experimentation before you crack it, but its usually worth a bit of trial and error. Good Luck. I’d be pleased to hear of your results if you give it a try.
