Ingredients

Scale

Wet Ingredients

  • 1 + 1/2 cup mashed ripe banana (~3 large ripe bananas)
  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • 1/3 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/4 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 flax egg (1 tbsp ground flaxseed + 3 tbsp water)

Dry Ingredients

  • 2 cups oat flour
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Mix-Ins

  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a muffin tin with parchment muffin/cupcake liners.
  2. Create the flax egg by combining 1 tbsp ground flaxseed + 3 tbsp water. Set aside for 15 minutes to thicken.
  3. Add all wet ingredients to a large bowl. Whisk together.
  4. Add all dry ingredients to the bowl. Mix ingredients together until evenly combined. Then, fold in the chocolate chips.
  5. Scoop the batter into each muffin liner. Top with additional chocolate chips (optional).
  6. Bake muffins for 25-30 minutes. After, remove from the oven and allow muffins to cool for 15-20 minutes before removing them from the tin. 

Notes

  • Make sure you measure the flour correctly. Do not scoop or pack the flour. Flour should be gently spooned into a measuring cup until completely filled. Then, any excess should be scraped off with a knife.
  • Use liquid or melted coconut oil. If your coconut oil is solid at room temperature, add several spoonfuls to a bowl and microwave it for 30 seconds to melt. Then, measure 1/4 cup and proceed with the recipe.
