Ingredients

  • 3 bananas medium sized, the riper the better
  • 3 eggs large sized
  • cup coconut oil melted
  • 1 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups almond flour or almond meal
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ¾ cup chocolate chips regular, dairy free, sugar free

Instructions

  • Heat Oven and Prepare Muffin Tray - Heat oven to 180C | 350F and line a 12-cup muffin tray with paper baking cases (if you are using a metal tray)
  • Prepare Wet Ingredients - In a large bowl, combine the bananas, eggs, coconut oil and vanilla extract.
  • Add Dry Ingredients - Then add the almond meal, baking powder and cinnamon powder to the wet ingredients, mixing until well combined.
  • Add Chocolate Chips - Finally, add all the chocolate chips and fold through the mixture.
  • Divide Mixture - Spoon mixture evenly into the baking cases or muffin holes (if using a silicone tray).
  • Bake - Bake for approximately 15-18 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean.
  • Allow to Cool - Set aside in the pan for 10 minutes before turning out onto a wire rack.

Notes

  • You can use either a metal baking tray with baking cases or my personal favourite, a silicone muffin tray

  • Use room temperature eggs for the best outcome
  • Store for 3-4 days in an air-tight container
