Chocolate-Banana Muffins How to make Gluten-Free Chocolate Banana Muffins1 (2)Gluten-Free is the new buzz word, yeah? I see and hear gluten-free everywhere I go – Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest..everywhere. And of course a big topic of conversation among my health freak friends too.

And, as always, I’m averse to change and it would take a lot of coaxing to make me try something new. And even if I would try something that lies out of my comfort zone, 8 times out of 10, I end up not liking it.

But but, I gave in to the almond meal or almond flour. Mainly because I actually like almonds and I had no problems of trying to bake with it. First I made a banana bread with the almond meal and even though it was not as fluffy as I would have preferred, it tasted great nevertheless and that served as my husband’s breakfast bread for a week.

Now that I was hooked, I wanted to bake more with almond meal and I carried on to chocolate banana muffins. The muffins were DELICIOUS. My 4-year-old liked them too and that made me happy. The best part is that these yummy Chocolate-Banana Muffins can be your go-to breakfast muffins if you are in a rush and don’t have time for breakfast. They taste great with black coffee and don’t forget, they are – Gluten-Free, Grain-Free, Dairy-Free and Paleo.Glutton Free Baking, Chocolate Banana cup cake, Almond Meal, Healthy Baking

These Chocolate-Banana muffins are so easy to make as well. The bananas that I used were very ripe and very sweet, so I added less sugar. You can adjust sugar as per your taste.

INGREDIENTS:
  • 2 overripe bananas finely mashed
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs or 1/2 cup yogurt
  • 1/4 cup olive oil or coconut oil (I used olive oil)
  • 2 cups almond flour
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 3 TBSP coconut flour or rice flour (I used coconut flour)
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips. I used Ghirardelli brand
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt

METHOD:

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  • In a large bowl, mash the bananas, add the sugar and stir.
  • Add in the eggs (or yogurt) and oil and stir until well combined.
  • Add the almond flour, coconut flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt and stir just until combined and then stir in the chocolate chips.
  • Spoon the batter into the muffin liners and bake for like 18 to 20 minutes

  3. Did you call me a freak? Ha, I am gluten free because of Acid Reflux anyway Almond Meal is insanely good to cook with right? I have experimented a lot with gluten free flours and I use gelatin instead of the usual binder they recommend. Another little tip is adding gluten-free pudding mix it makes baked goodies so soft.
