How I have been recipe developing for over 6 years and this is my first chocolate chip muffin recipe?!

Technically I was a little more innovative a couple years ago and made that Dark Chocolate Chip Muffin Bread (gluten-free + vegan)that is still to this day a personal favorite.

We have made other kinds of muffins like those Paleo Cinnamon Roll Muffins and Blueberry Crumb Cake Muffins but today we are making what is officially my number one muffin recipe on the blog – Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins! Pretty much a blend of banana bread and chocolate into muffin form, so what isn’t to love?

These Chocolate Banana Muffins are made with just 6 key ingredients and they are paleo, gluten-free and vegan.

You can enjoy these for snack, with breakfast, as dessert, anything! I love pairing mine with some coconut yogurt and peanut butter for breakfast. Plus they freeze well like most of the other baked goods on the blog. So feel free to bake them and freeze some for later (if you have will power). They are also one of Ezra’s favorite breakfasts or snacks to enjoy.

What ingredients we need to bake these muffins:

  • Mashed banana – you can also use applesauce. The more ripe the bananas though the better!
  • Non-dairy milk – any variety works. I love using cashew, almond and coconut. Just look for no added sugars though as those are sneaky in milks.
  • Flax egg – I make this by using Garden of Life Organic Ground Flaxseed and mixing with water (instructions below!)
  • Coconut sugar – the sweetener here. I don’t recommend subbing a liquid sugar like honey or maple syrup
  • Almond flour – check out this post for more info on how to use this flour
  • Chocolate chips – the more the better! Use the code RACHL for free shipping

  1. These are the first muffins I have made with almond flour, and it turned out good! I replaced the flaxseed with eggs, used unsweetened coconut milk from a carton, and added some chopped walnuts since I only had 1/4 cup of chocolate chips left. I used tiny muffin holders and put them in the oven for about 22 minutes. I’ve never had a muffin so moist! The chocolate was great in these, and I think blueberries would be excellent as well.

  2. These muffins are EPIC!! I ran out of almond flour and subbed the remaining amount with oat flour (I was so worried it wasn’t going to work) and they still turned out perfectly!! I guess you could call it a 1:1 ratio sub! Thank you for these amazing muffins <3 You continue to amaze me
