Healthy Chocolate Muffins with Walnuts

Super pumped for today’s recipe. Why? Well, banana + chocolate = love…especially when you top it with nut butter! These muffins are SO TASTY and SO FLUFFY. There is nothing worse than a dry muffin, do you feel me? Baking the perfectly moist muffin is a challenge for anyone! If you tend to produce dry muffins here are few tips and tricks to making sure your muffins moist!

  • Add that fat! Don’t skimp on the coconut oil in this recipe, it helps keep the muffins moist!
  • Remove muffins from the muffin tin immediately after baking to prevent the muffins from cooking in the pan after you take them out!
  • If you did over bake the muffins, try topping them with nut butter to add moisture!
  • Let the muffins cool completely and store them in an airtight container to keep them fresher, longer!

We’ve made them a few times already and man, they never get old! Here’s what you need for these chocolate banana walnut muffins!

Chocolate Banana Muffins Ingredients

  • white whole wheat flour
  • cocoa powder
  • coconut sugar
  • walnuts
  • eggs

We Love Nonstick Muffin Tins!

I have a revelation. NONSTICK MUFFIN TINS ARE THE SHIT. Team Fit Foodie finally upgraded our old muffin tin to a beautiful nonstick one. It’s nothing special and you can get it from Target for $8.99. Best $9 you will ever spend, I promise, because there is nothing worse than making a batch of muffins and having them stick to your pan. Speaking of sticking to your pan. I prefer my muffins without a muffin liner, but you have the option to do either.
