I know that baking banana bread during quarantine was a huge thing, but I’ll literally never stop baking anything that incorporates overripe bananas, because anything with banana tastes delicious. We’ve been pretty good about waste in our home, we usually are (with some occasions), and for the last few weeks we haven’t had many bananas go to waste because we’ve eaten them before they can turn super ripe or ripe enough to bake with.
Lately I’ve been kind of obsessed with this paleo flour I found on Thrive Market from Bob’s Red Mill. It has a blend of almond flour, coconut flour, tapioca, and arrowroot so it’s grain-free and it holds up really well in baked goods. I don’t personally prefer to bake with coconut flour or even cook much with coconut oil, but in this blend of flours I was very pleased with the results. Coconut flour tends to absorb liquids quicker, so I’m glad the almond flour amongst the arrowroot and tapioca helped keeps these muffins moist, flavorful, and balanced with notes of banana, almond, and barely any coconut. Also, there’s truly nothing better than having the entire house smell like fresh baked muffins on a crummy weekend.
Preheat the oven to 350º and grease a muffin tin. Take the two bananas and mash into a mixing bowl. Add the egg, coconut sugar, maple syrup, oil, and whisk together until all ingredients are combined. Take a second mixing bowl and add the flour, soda, powder, and whisk together. Pour the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and whisk until all of the flour is incorporated. Add in the cup of chocolate chips and whisk again. Separate the batter into the muffin tin and bake for 25-27 minutes. Let cool for five minutes and enjoy! I actually really like these muffins for breakfast with a side of whipped cream and cup of fresh brewed coffee. Delish!
Easy peasy chocolate chip banana muffins, mini versions of the quarantine banana bread, but made with a paleo flour-blend, gluten free and dairy free. These muffins will make your home smell like your favorite childhood memories.
