There is something so delicious about the classic Banana Choc-Chip muffin. I was determined to make a guilt-free version, which was still delicious and with any luck nutritious. We finished our first batch of these muffins within a few hours, so I’d call that a success! Check out the gluten-free, dairy-free and refined sugar-free recipe below!
This recipe is honestly ridiculously simple, for the first time in just about ever I didn’t even use my stand-mixer to whip these together - just a simple bowl and spoon.
There is something about that simplicity which I think makes this recipe even more delicious, it reminds me of baking in the kitchen as a child. Mum would have to put the ingredients together quickly enough so I didn’t get a good shot at stealing mixture from the bowl - must have been a little stressful for her but I thought it was all good fun.
What I love about these muffins in particular though is that they give you a real taste of banana and gooey chocolate, and they’re not overwhelmingly sweet - which almost encourages you to go back for more!
I think these would be a fantastic snack for kids' lunchboxes, and I’ll definitely be popping these in my bag for uni.
Buckwheat is one of the healthiest, nuttiest and most versatile whole grains. Buckwheat flour is packed with fibre - four times as much as regular flour. Not to mention it’s also gluten-free despite the term ‘wheat’ being very misleading. It’s completely unrelated to wheat and any of the grasses in the wheat family. Strange right?
Let’s get down to the important details, the recipe!
