Chocolate Walnut Banana Muffins

Processed with VSCO with c1 preset

Recipes makes ~9 large muffins:

In a large mixing bowl, blend together the following ingredients:

  • 2 small ripe bananas
  • 1/4 cup greek yogurt (or coconut yogurt/dairy free yogurt if needed)
  • 1/4 cup egg whites (swap for flax eggs if vegan)
  • 1/3 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tbsp almond butter
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 tbsp brown rice syrup
  • 1 1/2 tsp coconut oil, melted

Once all these wet ingredients are blended together. Begin to mix in the following:

  • 1/3 cup whole wheat flour (or flour of choice)
  • 1/2 cup oat flour
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/3 tsp ground sea salt

After the wet and dry ingredients are completely mixed, fold in the following using a spatula: 

  • 3 tbsp dark chocolate chips OR I used 3 tsp dark chocolate puffed quinoa (from BulkBarn)
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts

Directions:

  1. After mixing your batter thoroughly, preheat the oven to 350F. Line a muffin tin with paper muffin cups OR as I did, grease with coconut oil.
  2. Bake for ~18-20 minutes. Allow to sit and cool. ENJOY 🙂
