Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

When overly ripe bananas enter your kitchen, bake these babies! I created this super simple gluten free banana chocolate chip muffin recipe.

Wake & Bake

Do you ever wake up and look around the kitchen and think to yourself, I would absolutely love to bake today! Well this happened to me earlier this week when I had ripe bananas in the kitchen. I created this easy gluten free banana chocolate chip muffin recipe

This muffin recipe is absolutely delicious! I love baking them and then freezing them so I can enjoy them as I please. These muffins are delicious for breakfast with nut butter, an energizing afternoon snack or a yummy sweet treat in the evening.

Perfect for the freezer or meal prep!

These are the perfect Sunday meal prep recipe for yourself, lover, family or friends! Personally, I love having one of these muffins with my morning cup of coffee before heading off to the gym. Even though it is not a fully balanced breakfast, sometimes it’s all I need.

When you bake them, if you have a surplus just freeze them and then when you’re ready to enjoy one heat it up in the microwave for 30 seconds.

Here’s what you’ll need to bake these muffins:

  • Coconut Oil: This adds healthy fats to this recipe, a key ingredient.
  • Vanilla Extract: Vanilla sweetens these paleo muffins naturally.
  • Organic Coconut Sugar: Clean substitute for white sugar!
  • Gluten Free Flour: I love using an easy 1-1 gluten free flour.
  • Dark Chocolate Chips: Chocolate chips are a must in these muffins! These are a sweet touch that will curb other sweet cravings.

Once you’ve got all your ingredients together, it’s as easy as mixing up the wet ingredients, mixing up the dry ingredients, stirring them all together, and then baking up your beautiful muffins!

 Enjoy these in the morning or as a snack with a little butter or almond butter!

Have a blessed and beautiful day. I love seeing all of your creations, share them with me Tag @theempowerist on IG or direct message me!
