Banana Muffins, Version 2 (with mini chocolate chips!)

photo-3

 

I’ve been making my banana muffin recipe for months now and have tweaked it a little bit over the months, resulting in a better muffin (I think).  Plus, I sometimes add chocolate chips to the muffins to make them more dessert-like.  Chocolate makes everything better.

Banana Muffins, Version 2

3 very ripe bananas

3 eggs

2 teaspoons of vanilla

3 tablespoons of coconut palm sugar (or 1 T of honey)

2 tablespoons of coconut oil (softened)

6 tablespoons of Flaxseed meal

2 cups of almond flour

1/2 teaspoon of salt

1 teaspoon of baking soda

1/4 cup of chopped walnuts

1/4 cup of mini chocolate chips (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line your muffin pan with paper muffin liners.

Cream the bananas & eggs with a hand mixer in a large mixing bowl.  Mix in vanilla, coconut oil, & coconut sugar.

Add in almond flour, salt, flaxseed meal, and baking soda and mix well.  Mix in nuts & chocolate chips.

Spoon batter into the muffin cups, until mostly full.

Bake for about 30 minutes or until muffins are golden brown and a toothpick comes out clean.

Remove from oven and allow to cool.

Enjoy!

This recipe was originally a bread recipe, but I like muffins better.  There’s just something about a lightly toasted muffin with butter slathered all over it for breakfast.
