I have been joking lately that I have a house full of chimps. I have had a difficult time getting a few black spotted bananas to bake with because my family is eating them so fast. I am not sure what has caused this sudden rise in banana consumption, but I am not going to complain too loudly when bananas are being chosen. I simply have learned to hide some so they get a chance to reach that black spotted stage that makes them perfect for baking!
I have been craving a chocolate chip banana muffin, and this one fits the bill perfectly. They are simple to whip up in a food processor, have protein from six eggs, healthy fat from olive oil (they make muffins very moist!) are mostly sweetened with bananas and just a touch of honey, and sprinkled with some dairy free chocolate chips. Heavenly! Scroll down for the recipe which makes an even dozen.
Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins (Dairy and Grain Free)
Preheat your oven to 350º degrees F. Line 12 muffin cups with non-stick muffin papers and set aside.
6 Pastured Eggs
1/2 Cup of Coconut Flour (here)
2 Black Spotted Bananas
1/4 Cup of Olive Oil
2 Tablespoons of Honey
1 Teaspoon of Vanilla Extract
1 Teaspoon of Lemon Juice
1/2 Teaspoon of Baking Soda
1/2 Cup of Mini Chocolate Chips plus more for sprinkling (I use these dairy and gluten free ones)
Directions: In a food processor with a blade attachment, blend the eggs and banana until the banana is smooth. Add in the rest of the ingredients except the chocolate chips and blend for two minutes. Add in 1/2 cup of mini chocolate chips and pulse six times just until the chocolate chips are incorporated but not broken up. Scoop the batter into the prepared muffin cups and sprinkle with some extra chocolate chips. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes in your preheated oven until the tops spring back. Remove from the oven, and cool for five minutes before removing from the pan and cooling on a wire rack.
These keep at room temperature for three days. I only know this because I hid one, otherwise my son would have eaten them all. 🙂
Enjoy your day!
