Chocolate Banana Chia Muffins, Gluten Free

Oh my gosh…. I made these the other day for the first time, and they are so good! I adapted this recipe from another food blog and just made a couple of minor tweaks. The chia seeds give these muffins a nice crunch and the bananas, maple syrup and dates give them such a superb amount of sweetness. These muffins are packed with all natural protein, fiber, antioxidants and omega 3s!

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup oat flour
  • ¾ cup almond flour
  • ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ¼ cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ cup pitted dates, minced
  • 2 large organic eggs
  • ¼ cup Greek plain yogurt
  • ¼ cup coconut oil, melted
  • 1/3 cup pure maple syrup
  • 3 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line muffin cups with paper liners.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk oat flour, almond flour, cocoa powder, shredded coconut, chia seeds, baking soda and salt. Stir in minced dates.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk eggs, plain yogurt, melted coconut oil, maple syrup, mashed bananas and vanilla extract. Whisk until smooth.
  4. Pour wet ingredients into flour mixture and stir until well combined. Spoon batter into muffin cups.
  5. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.

Yields 18 standard muffins.
