Ingredients

Full recipe and amounts can be found in the recipe card below.

  • Flour. Instead of using only regular flour, I subbed out most of it for my beloved oat flour. I left a half a cup of flour because I find it gives more structure to the baked muffins.
  • Oat flour.
  • Baking powder.
  • Salt.
  • Bananas. The bananas have two roles in these muffins. They help sweeten them so that we don’t need as much sugar and they also act as a binding agent along with the eggs.
  • Sugar. Instead of regular granulated sugar, try to find unrefined brown sugar or use a sweetener of your choice. Just keep in mind that maple syrup and honey will make the muffins a little stickier and will also alter the flavor.
  • Oil. You could absolutely use melted butter in this recipe but I really prefer canola oil. Not only is the oil neutral in flavor, it also keeps these muffins moist for days.
  • Eggs
  • Cocoa powder.
  • Dark chocolate.

How to make healthy chocolate muffins

  1. Make the batter: In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients. Add the mashed banana, eggs, oil and chocolate. Mix until the batter is combined.
  2. Bake: Line a 12-hole muffin pan with paper liners and give each a light spray with non-stick cooking spray. Fill each cup 3/4 full with the muffin batter. Place in a preheated oven and allow to bake for 15-20 minutes until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely before serving.

Making ahead and freezing:

  1. Make ahead: These muffins can be made up to 5 days ahead and kept covered in the fridge. Because there is no butter in this recipe, they won’t go hard and can be eaten straight out of the fridge.
  2. Freezing: Baked and cooled muffins can be frozen in suitable containers or freezer bags for up to 3 months. Allow to thaw completely before serving.
