If I didn’t need the weekend as an excuse to bake, I also had some old bananas to use up in the kitchen so I made these little yummy muffins! Unlike regular muffins which are sickly sweet and dense, these are light and fluffy and full of good ingredients – lots of seeds, nut meal and eggs. The bananas add a great natural sweetness so no other sweeteners are needed! Add a scoop of vanilla or caramel protein powder for an extra boost and flavour – otherwise enjoy just as they are.
Tip: store in the freezer and defrost when you feel like a snack!
1/4 cup flaxseeds
1 tbsp chia seeds
1 cup almond meal
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp vanilla
pinch rock salt
1 scoop protein ( optional)
1/4 cup nut milk ( add if the mix feels too dry, or sub with some nut butter to wetten the mix)
1/2 cup dark choc chunks
- Preheat the oven to 170 degrees celsius
- Combine all ingredients in a bowl or blender . If you are mixing in a bowl, mash te banana first before combining with the rest
- Scoop into muffin tin
- Top with a square of your favourite dark chocolate
- Bake for 15 minutes or until golden on top . Enjoy warm for the best healthy treat!
