    My apologies for taking 4 years to share a chocolate peanut butter BANANA MUFFIN!

    But they’re here and they are easy. They are healthy and these muffins make the perfect breakfast or snack recipe.

    I actually baked this on a total whim a month ago when I went to make my Bakery-Style Banana Spice Muffins and realized I didn’t have all of the ingredients I needed to make them. This is usually how I end up creating many of my recipes actually. I go to bake one from the blog, don’t have the goods and am too lazy to get more ingredients.

    I love that these healthy muffins are made with just 7 key ingredients and they have just the right ratio from moist to cake.

    These muffins also combine 3 of the best flavors in the world into one recipe, so there isn’t really much not to love. We have our banana bread, peanut butter and some dark chocolate.

    Plus you only get 6-7 muffins when you make this recipe, so it isn’t a large batch. Just the right amount for a couple days of snacking and eating.

    What you need to bake these healthy chocolate banana muffins:

    • Mashed banana. The riper the better so they are extra sweet and moist for ya. I actually share my tip for ripening bananas quickly in my cookbook, Just the Good Stuff!
    • Pasture-raised eggs. You can also sub flax egg or chia egg if you prefer or don’t have any eggs on hand.
    • Creamy peanut butter. The creamier the better for this recipe. The kind that is extra oily and drizzly like this one.
    • Gluten-free oat flour. You can also use a spelt flour if not GF or gluten-free all purpose flour. I haven’t tested a grain-free version yet.
    • Cacao powder. To help the muffins get that chocolatey flavor. I use unsweetened cacao powder.
    • Coconut sugar. I prefer a grainy sugar option in this as opposed to maple syrup or honey.
    • Dark chocolate. The more chocolate chips the better. I love using these ones (code RACHL for free shipping!)

    1. LOVE this recipe and these muffins!! Just a heads up that you forgot to put where to add the coconut sugar into them in your steps. I added it in when I mixed the wet ingredients and it worked great. Just didn’t want anyone to miss that delicious ingredient! Thanks so much for creating such amazing recipes and for your new podcast. I have been listening to them when I drive to work and they’ve been so informative and fun to listen to!

    2. Have made two batches of these in 24 hours and they’re delicious! My husband and kiddos love them! I use the King Arthur GF Flour. Also, noticed the recipe has been updated where to add the coconut sugar. I added it to wet ingredients and the recipe turned out great too.

    3. These are my absolute favorite!! When I make the peanut butter topper I add in a little ghee and powdered sugar to make it a little extra tasty. Just ordered your book cant wait to get it!
