What you need:

Prep time: 15 mins | Makes 12 Muffins

WET Ingredients
  • 4 very ripe bananas (look for lots of brown spots)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup almond milk (or any plant-based milk)
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup melted coconut oil (Or MCT Oil – Read JK’s Tip!)
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
DRY Ingredients
  • 1 1/2 cup gluten free oat flour
  • 1/2 cup gluten free rolled oats
  • 1 cup of quinoa flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup of organic raw coconut sugar
Add in’s
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
Toppings
  • 1/4 cup gluten-free granola

JK’s TIP: With any recipe you could sub out up to 1/4 cup of coconut oil for MCT Oil  for extra nutritional value! However, I wouldn’t recommend baking with MCT Oil over 350 F due to its medium heat point index, meaning if it gets too hot it could become rancid!

Steps:

  1. Preheat oven to 325 F & fill a muffin pan with individual cupcake liners
  2. Mash the bananas and mix in all the wet ingredients, whisk until smooth
  3. In another bowl, combine all the dry ingredients
  4. Gradually add the dry mixture to the wet mixture, blend until well incorporated
  5. Fold in chocolate chips
  6. Using an ice-cream scoop, or large serving spoon, scoop and drop batter evenly in each muffin liner
  7. Bake for 25 minutes, remove and let cool slightly before serving
  8. Sprinkle gluten-free granola over top of each muffin for a satisfying crunch!
  9. Storage: cover and store these muffins on your kitchen counter, or easily freeze them in an air tight Ziploc bag and to be reheated & enjoyed later!

JK TIP: Beautify your muffins by adding 1/3 cup of Marine Collagen to the dry mixture, for extra nutritional value and nourishing benefits that won’t compromise taste! With one muffin you’ll reach your daily recommended dose of collagen!
