Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins or Dave’s Favorite Muffins Ever (recipe adapted from here) – gluten free and vegan
- 6 brown-spotted ripe bananas
- 1/2c. + 2T. milk (any kind – we use almond)
- 3t. vanilla
- 1c. unsweetened applesauce
- 3/4c. truvia baking blend (or 2 1/4c. brown sugar)
- 6c. oat flour (I make my own by grinding oats in the blender)
- 4 1/2t. baking powder
- 1 1/2t. baking soda
- dark chocolate chips (shake in as many as you think it needs)
Cream together the bananas, milk, vanilla, applesauce, and truvia until bananas are well mashed and ingredients are well mixed. Add in flour, baking powder, and baking soda. Mix until just combined. Fold in chocolate chips.
Spoon into greased muffin tin, filling each cup about 3/4 of the way full. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Makes 2 dozen.
We’ve been making these muffins on a regular basis. Dave is in deep, deep loooove with them. Direct quotes from him: “This is what has been missing in my life” and “It tastes like Christmas!” He’s just a little obsessed with them. Leo chows them down, too. They’ve also been great for having Leo start helping in the kitchen. Right now we just pull the step stool over to the counter and he watches while I mix things together – and samples chocolate chips. Soon I know he’ll be able to help measure and pour, which will be a lot of fun (and messy!), too.
Hope you like these as much as we do!
