  • Wet Ingredients
  • 1 heaping cup mashed, ripe banana (from about 3 medium bananas)
  • 2 eggs
  • ¼ cup pure maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • Dry Ingredients
  • 1 cup packed fine blanched almond flour
  • 1 cup gluten free oat flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup mini chocolate chips
  • 2-3 tablespoons mini or regular dairy free chocolate chips (I use Enjoy life), for sprinkling on top


  1. 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.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together mashed banana, eggs, maple syrup and vanilla extract until smooth. 
  3. In a separate large bowl, whisk together the almond flour, oat flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt until well combined. 
  4. Add dry ingredient to wet ingredients. Fold in ⅓ cup chocolate chips. 
  5. 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.

Recipe Notes

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. We haven't tested but we think it should turn out!
