Paleo Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins


This is the first treat I’ve baked in sooooo long. I used to bake every week, then I went on vacation, then it was Christmas, New Years etc. I waited so long for these bananas to be perfectly ripe, I even tried going to the grocery store and buying over-ripe bananas on the reduced rack and they didn’t have any 😦 !
Totally randomly put this recipe together and I love it. Muffins are moist on the inside and have that crispy “muffin top” we all love!

Recipe is Gluten, Dairy, Grain Free, + has No Added Sugar

Ingredients: Makes 6 muffins
2 small very ripe bananas
1/4 cup unsalted roasted almond butter
1 egg
1 egg white
1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
3/4 cup almond meal/flour
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp baking powder
pinch of salt
1/4 cup mini enjoy life chocolate chips
Chocolate chunks for topping (optional)

1. Preheat oven to 350.
2. Mash banana well and mix in a bowl with almond butter, eggs and almond milk.
3. Once that mixture is combined well, add almond meal/flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking powder and salt. Mix until combined. Fold in chocolate chips.
4. Spoon mixture into a lined muffin tray (I use silicon muffin liners, they are AMAZING.) Place a chocolate chunk on each muffin (optional)
5. Bake for 30 mins. Tops should be browned, and of course, muffins should pass the toothpick test.

      I’m not sure, I don’t count calories. You can use the app “My Fitness Pal” to calculate. 🙂

    so i’d love to make them for a friend who is allergic to almonds,peanuts and hazelnuts. i know how to substitute the meal and milk but i don’t have any butter substitute…. any idea on how to do so?

      You can substitute it with cashew butter, or sunflower butter. Not sure how it would taste, but it’s the same texture!

        The issue is that it is already hard to find peanut butter where i live (end of europe) not to mention other nut/seed butters.
