Remember when I said I would be posting lots of healthy sweets recipes this month? Well, tonight I’m starting that off with these delicious Choco-Banana Hazlenut muffins. They’re gluten free, dairy free, high fiber, refined sugar free, and low glycemic.
These are always a crowd pleaser in my family and with guests. They’re rich, chocolatey and have some wonderful warm, nutty undertones!
These sweet, banana filled muffins are inspired by “Despicable Me,”
1/2 cup refined coconut oil
1 cup coconut sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp almond extract
3 bananas, mashed
1 cup oat flour
1/4 cup millet flour
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1/4 tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 cup roasted hazelnuts, chopped
Line a muffin tin with paper liners.
Cream together coconut oil and coconut sugar.
Add vanilla & almond extract and eggs.
Mix in banana until well incorporated.
In a separate bowl, combine your dry ingredients.
Fold dry ingredients into the wet.
