When you fancy a muffin but really don’t want to eat refined sugar and over processed food, these are fab! Quick and easy to make and really chocolatey 🙂 AND cacao is a superfood so they’re actually good for you 🙂

I added cacao nibs to create chocolate chips and they worked a treat 🙂

Ingredients – for 4-6 large muffins

  • Ripe or overripe bananas x 2
  • Egg yolks x 2
  • Coconut oil – 1/4 cup
  • Baking soda – 1 tsp.
  • Salt – 1/2 tsp.
  • Honey – 4 tbsp.
  • Maple syrup – 2 tbsp.
  • Almond milk – 1/4 cup
  • Sugar free caramel syrup (optional) – 2 tbsp.
  • Wholemeal self-raising flour – 1.5-2 cups depending on consistency
  • Cacao powder – 4 tbsp.
  • Cacao nibs – 2 tbsp.

Directions

  1. Pre-heat oven to gas mark 5 / 190
  2. Mash bananas in a mixing bowl
  3. Add melted coconut oil, egg yolks, baking soda, salt, honey, maple syrup, caramel syrup and almond milk and whisk gently for a smooth batter
  4. Fold in flour and cacao powder
  5. Add cacao nibs
  6. Stir thoroughly mixing everything together
  7. Pour the mixture into large muffin cases and place into a muffin tray
  8. Bake for 30-45 mins (or until a knife comes out clean when poked in the middle of one)

Easy peasy 🙂

Enjoy!

With love, Tash x
