Healthy Banana Chocolate Chocolate Chip Muffins: tender & moist chocolate banana muffins. The best healthy chocolate banana muffins—fluffy & fudgy, with deep chocolate banana brownie flavor. SO GOOD!



Wet Ingredients

  • 1 cup mashed, very ripe bananas (about 3 medium bananas)
  • ¼ cup melted coconut oil
  • 3 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 1 flax egg (1 tablespoon ground flaxseed + 3 tablespoons water, whisk together, set for 15 mins)
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Dry Ingredients


Optional Topping


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a 12-cup muffin pan with muffin liners.  Set aside.
  2. Peel bananas and add to a large mixing bowl. Using a pastry cutter (recommended), sturdy whisk or fork, mash bananas until smooth. Add the coconut oil, maple syrup, flax egg and vanilla. Whisk until well incorporated.
  3. In a medium bowl, sift together oat flour, cacao powder, almond meal, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  4. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients. Whisk together as long as you can. Switch to stirring and folding with a rubber spatula until well incorporated and no flour patches remain. Fold in chocolate chips. Batter will be very thick—do not add additional liquids.
  5. Using a large scoop, scoop and drop batter evenly into prepared muffin pan. Fill each cup all the way to the top for a smaller quantity of big, round-topped muffins, and ¾ of the way for a larger quantity of smaller muffins.  Optionally, sprinkle with chocolate chips and lightly press down into each muffin top.
  6. Bake for 18-28 minutes. Mine took 23 minutes for large, high-topped muffins. Place muffin pan onto a cooling rack for 30 minutes. Then, gently transfer muffins directly onto cooling rack for 1 hour to cool completely. Enjoy! Storing instructions below.
