Almond, Banana and Chocolate Muffins

The perfect morning tea time treat to nourish and satisfy any craving.

I love a good treat that’s easily justified as a healthy snack. These winter-warming muffins do just that. They are easy to throw together and enjoy half an hour later without breaking into a sweat trying to prepare them.

They satisfy any sweet tooth minus the sugar, meaning you don’t have to worry about your waistline – always a plus!  They are higher in fat due to the almond meal and macadamia oil but a bit of fat didn’t hurt anyone and fat is essential for healthy gorgeous glowing skin. Eat up beautiful!

Almond, Banana and Chocolate Muffins – ABC Muffins

Gluten-free, Refined sugar-free, Dairy-free, Grain-free

Makes 12 muffins

3 smallish bananas, approximately 250 grams
2 large eggs
60mL macadamia oil
Pinch of salt
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
3 sachets of Natvia or 2 tablespoons of maple syrup or honey
2 cups of almond meal
½ teaspoon bicarb soda
¼ cup chopped vegan chocolate (I used Loving Earth dark coconut sugar chocolate)
Flaked almonds and sliced banana to decorate

GET ORGANISED:
Grease a muffin tray with macadamia oil and preheat your oven to 140 degrees Celsius.

If you have a Vitamix, you can do the following:
Combine bananas, eggs, and macadamia oil. salt, lemon and Natvia and blend on a low speed until combined.

OR:
Mash bananas in a bowl until, err, mushy? With a wooden spoon add eggs one at t a time beating until well combined. Add the macadamia oil, salt, lemon and Natvia and mix until well combined

THEN:
Combine almond meal, chocolate chips and bicarb in a bowl and give a quick mix with a spoon. Add the wet banana mixture and mix until just combined.

FINISH:
Spoon into muffin pan making sure the mix is evenly distributed. Top with a slice or two or the banana and a few flaked almonds. Place in the oven and cook for approximately 20 minutes. The muffins should spring back lightly to touch and be aesthetically pleasing with a nice golden muffin tan!

SERVE:
Leave to cool in a tray for approximately 10 minutes. Carefully turn out and play on a wire rack to cool, or grab one and eat it while driving to work!
