Healthy Banana Muffins

There is nothing better then a warm chocolate muffin straight from the oven as a little Friday treat! However, these little gluten and refined sugar free muffins can be eaten guilt free any day of the week!! I created this recipe a few weeks ago and haven’t looked back since…it is definitely my go to recipe for delicious and super simple muffins! The main ingredients are peanut butter, bananas and eggs; so they are great for a low carb, grain free and high protein snack that will fuel you up before or after a workout and anywhere in-between! They also are completely sugar free, with only natural sugars from the banana to sweeten it, there is no worry of an afternoon sugar slump or crashing energy levels.

I love them because they are so light and fluffy and you honestly can’t tell that they are healthy they taste exactly the same as normal ones. Although I haven’t experimented with  a non-dairy milk alternative, I am sure it would work just as well with soya, almond or oat milk. Similarly, I am sure that almond butter would work just as well too!

Recipe for 12 muffins:

1 Medium Banana (make sure it is nice and spotty to maximise the sweetness)

2 Eggs

1 Cup Peanut Butter (I use crunchy PB, with no added sugars or palm oil)

1 1/2 tbsp Baking Powder

1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract

1/2 Cup Milk

100g Dark Chocolate

Method:

  1. Preheat the oven to 220 degrees.
  2. Blend all the ingredients together apart from the chocolate in a blender or food processor, until all the ingredients are smooth and combined.
  3. Chop the chocolate into small chunks.
  4. Stir the chocolate chunks into the muffin mixture until evenly spread throughout.
  5. Line a muffin tray with muffin cases.
  6. Fill the cases halfway with the mixture.
  7. Bake the muffins in the oven at 220 degrees for around 10-13 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean.

Its as easy as that!! Make sure to let them cool slightly before devouring, they never last more than a day in my house!
