Three words to describe these muffins you ask? Easy, nutritious and incredibly tasty! Okay that was more than three words… But seriously these muffins are so chocolatey and super healthy – the bulk of the sweetness comes from ripe bananas. A must-try.
Every week I buy bananas to slice on top of my smoothie bowls in the morning, but sometimes I have a few left over that I never got around to eating. I really HATE the taste of overly ripe bananas on their own, so I usually just end up freezing them to put in smoothies or my oatmeal bowls. Thanks to my muffin craving, this week I decided to try something different and put them into muffins. Spoiler alert… They turned out amazing!
I’m a big believer that you can eat comfort food and make it healthy at the same time. These muffins are no exception. Plus, chocolate and banana just go together, don’t you think? These muffins are gluten-free as well – I used almond flour instead of regular flour. All you’ll need for this recipe is a bowl, a fork, a whisk and your ingredients. I’m all about simple, quick and healthy recipes!
