Ingredients

Dry Ingredients

  • 1.5 cups white whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips (+ more for topping)

Wet Ingredients

  • 1 cup mashed banana*
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions

  1. First, preheat oven to 350ºF and line a muffin tin with muffin liners. We suggest also spraying your muffin liners with cooking spray just in case.
  2. Next, place dry ingredients into a medium bowl and mix.
  3. Then, in a small bowl, mash 1 large banana. Measure it and add 1 cup to a large bowl.
  4. Crack 2 eggs into the large bowl and whisk with mashed banana. Add maple syrup, almond milk, and vanilla extract and mix until combined.
  5. Add dry ingredients into wet ingredients and then mix. Then, add in melted coconut oil and mix again.
  6. Fill each muffin about 3/4 of the way full (these are going to be big muffins) and sprinkle on a few more chocolate chips. Then, place in the oven at 350ºF and bake for 18-22 minutes or until the center is fully cooked.
  7. Let cool for 5 minutes and then remove from the muffin tin to continue cooling.

Tips & Notes

  • *If you don’t like bananas, feel free to use another fruit puree such as applesauce or pumpkin.
