Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

Banana Chocolate Chip Yummy Healthy Muffins

I am always asked, “what should my kids eat for snack?”. I make these muffins and keep them in the freezer for a quick breakfast or go to snack. Buy the mini-chocolate chips as a little bit goes a long way. I’m not normally a fan of hiding healthy things in food but I couldn’t help myself¬†this time. Adding a few crushed walnuts and flax seed meal provides you with healthy fats and Omega 3’s (and they taste DELICIOUS!)! I also find that the flax meal gives the gluten-free flour a little more substance. Enjoy!


1) In a large bowl, smash 3 bananas with a fork.  Beat the following until well blended:

  • 2/3 Cup of Coconut or date sugar (or honey or maple syrup)
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1/3 Cup of Coconut Oil (melted)
  • 1 1/2 Teaspoons of Vanilla

2) In a large measuring cup or bowl, combine dry ingredients below. Then add to banana mixture:

  • 1 2/3 cup of Gluten-free flour (I like Bob’s Red Mill 1 to 1)
  • 2 Teaspoons of Baking Powder
  • 1/4 Teaspoon of Baking Soda
  • 1/2 Teaspoon of Salt
  • 1/2 Teaspoon of Cinnamon

3) Mix in Healthy alternatives (optional):

  • A sprinkle to 1/2 cup of Mini-chocolate chips (slowly transition to less and less)
  • 2 TBS- 1/4 cup of Flax Seed Meal
  • 2 Tablespoons of crushed walnuts (I like to crush a batch and add keep in a ziploc)

4) Spray muffin tins with Coconut Oil (or use paper cups) and bake for approximately 15-20 minutes until golden brown.
