1heaping cup mashed, ripe banana (from about 3 medium bananas)
¼cuppure maple syrup
1cuppacked fine blanched almond flour
1cupgluten free oat flour
1/3cupmini chocolate chips
2-3tablespoonsmini or regular dairy free chocolate chips (I use Enjoy life), for sprinkling on top
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a muffin tin with 10 muffin liners and spray the inside of the liners with nonstick cooking spray. This helps to prevent sticking.
In a large bowl, mix together mashed banana, eggs, maple syrup and vanilla extract until smooth.
In a separate large bowl, whisk together the almond flour, oat flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt until well combined.
Add dry ingredient to wet ingredients. Fold in ⅓ cup chocolate chips.
Divide batter evenly between liners. Sprinkle the tops of the batter with extra chocolate chips. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until tester comes out mostly clean with a few crumbs attached. Transfer muffins to a wire rack to allow them to cool. Enjoy! Makes 10 muffins.
To make as a bread: Pour batter into a 8x4 inch loaf pan greased and lined with parchment paper. Bake for 40-50 minutes until toothpick comes out clean.
To make vegan: use two flax eggs instead of regular eggs.
