Healthy Banana Muffins
I love pastries! A LOT! I would eat pastries for breakfast everyday if I could. Muffins, scones, donuts, croissants, you name it, I love it. But I also love to eat healthy, especially at breakfast time. These healthy banana muffins are perfect for those mornings that I’m craving something sweet for breakfast but want to eat healthy. I love how easy they are to make, you don’t even need a mixer! If you use extra ripe bananas, the muffins will be sweeter.
- 2 very ripe bananas
- 3 tbsp real maple syrup
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
- 2 cups almond flour
- 2-3 tbsp oat flour (plus more if batter is too wet)
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp kosher salt
- 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 2 tsp ground flaxseed
- 2/3 cup dark chocolate chips (optional)
Preheat the oven to 350F, line a 12 count muffin pan with muffin liners. In a large bowl, mash the bananas until smooth, add the remaining wet ingredients and whisk to combine. Mix all dry ingredients together in a separate bowl, then stir into the wet ingredients. Fold in chocolate if using. Scoop batter into muffin pan (3/4 full) and bake for 20-30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Enjoy these warm from the oven or let them cool and enjoy later. I like to spread almond butter on these for an extra dose of protein.
