Flourless Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins


Tired of eating eggs for breakfast every morning? These Flourless Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins will be your new go-to breakfast!

I love simple recipes that don’t require a lot of prep and clean up. I came across this healthy banana bread recipe, and I was sold when I found out that you could make muffins by simply throwing all the ingredients into a blender, scooping out the batter into your muffin tin, and popping them in the oven until they are done!


I made a few modifications to the original recipe and my muffins came out incredibly moist and fluffy.  You would never guess that they are packed with nutrients from almond butter, oatmeal, bananas, eggs, honey, and chia seeds.


I like to stir in just a few mini dark chocolate chips on top of each one so they have enough chocolate for the kids to feel like they are getting a treat but still keeping these muffins on the healthy side.


I’ve made these muffins three times this week and they have been gone within minutes every time. I hope your family enjoys them as much as we did!
