Banana Choc Berry Muffins (Lo Carb sugar free)

Ok it is muffin  snack time again at the moment I really don't know what else to make I thought I had this I have the pre-diabetes beat but a couple months down the track I am running out of things to make for quick snacks, muffins were good for a while but I am sort of over them. Anyway I haven't found anything else to make so made another batch. go on say it ! these do not look very appetizing!. I know but they will have to do they actually taste ok  but are a bit crumbly maybe because I put to much fruit in them or maybe because I changed the recipe and took out some flour and added coconut flour to it I even added more milk and an extra egg  still the mixture was a bit dry I only added 1 tablespoon of coconut oil to mine and I think it needed two. they are low carb and sugar free, and they certainly fill you up .. I am only new to this low carb sugar free way of cooking so bare with me give these a try and make your own adjustments. Oh and if you guys have any tips for me please leave a comment  so I can improve on them please . thanks
