Grain free CHOCOLATE BANANA MUFFINS (Great for Healthy Lunchbox!)

Share

If you love dark chocolate you will LOVE these healthy grain-free chocolate banana muffins. You will not taste the banana taste in them. They will also won’t taste like a paper as most gluten-free baked goods do. These chocolate banana muffins taste awesome, and I am not exaggerating a bit. I really loved them, both for the ingredient list and for the taste. The muffins are packed with protein, magnesium, potassium, collagen, and healthy fats.

Ingredients:

Tools needed:

Instructions:

1. Preheat the oven to 350 F.

2. In a blender cup, add bananas, vanilla extract, and eggs. Blend until incorporated, then add coconut sugar, cacao powder, collagen powder, sea salt, and blend again. Pour the melted ghee or butter, make sure it is not hot. Blend. Then add the baking powder and cassava flour. Blend until mixed well. You don’t have to blend a lot, just until well incorporated.

3. Grease the muffin molds or use muffin paper cups. Pour the batter in each muffin cup until 3/4 full.

4. Bake the muffins in a preheated oven for 18-23 minutes. The timing depends on the size of your muffin cups, also how full the cups are. If they are pretty full, then it takes about 23 minutes. If they are exactly 3/4 full, then about 18 minutes. Check the readiness by using a toothpick – insert a toothpick in the middle of a muffin. If the stick comes out dry, then the muffins are ready. The muffins will crack on the top when baked, however it is better to check the muffins with a stick for readiness.

5. Let the muffins cool, then serve.
