Recipe type: Muffins, Vegan, Gluten Free, Dairy Free
Serves: 12 muffins
Wet Ingredients
  • 3 medium, very ripe bananas (a little over 1 cup)
  • ¼ cup melted coconut oil
  • ¼ cup pure maple syrup
  • ¼ cup coconut sugar
  • 1 flax egg (1 tablespoon ground flax + 3 tablespoons water, whisk together, set for 5 mins)
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Dry Ingredients
  • 1 ¼ cups gluten free oat flour
  • ¾ cup almond meal
  • ½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda

  • Optional: 2 tablespoons assorted vegan chocolate chips for topping
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a standard 12-muffin pan with cupcake liners.
  2. Peel bananas and add to a large mixing bowl. Using a sturdy whisk or fork, mash bananas until completely smooth. Add the rest of the wet ingredients: coconut oil, maple syrup, sugar, flax egg, and vanilla. Whisk until well incorporated.
  3. Add all dry ingredients: oat flour, almond meal, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Whisk together until just incorporated, making sure no flour patches remain. Be careful not to overmix.
  4. Pour batter evenly into cupcake liners. Optional: sprinkle chocolate chips on top of the muffins.
  5. Bake for 25-30 minutes.
  6. Place the muffin pan on a cooling rack. Allow to cool for about 1 hour. Lift out and enjoy!
