Flourless Banana, Blueberry Chocolate Muffins

Paige is like me; a chocoholic.  I could probably add chocolate to anything, and she’d eat it.  The color of these muffins threw her off a bit at first, since…well…they are sort of ugly, but when I told her they were dark because they contain chocolate, she dove right in.  I’ve been making these for a while but only just recently started adding blueberries. Sometimes I use peanut butter and other times I use Sunbutter.  If you aren’t allowed to pack peanut butter at your child’s school, Sunbutter is a great replacement.  Paige doesn’t like Sunbutter but she doesn’t even know I use it for these muffins!Paige, hold up the muffin and smile!Paige, take a bite of the muffin and smile!

Flourless Banana, Blueberry Chocolate Muffins

Ingredients

  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 2 cups natural, smooth peanut butter (or Sunbutter or almond butter)
  • ½ cup maple syrup
  • 1½ cups pureed banana (about 2 whole bananas)
  • 4 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup dark chocolate chips
  • ¼ cup fresh blueberries

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a muffin tray with cooking spray (or line with muffin liners).
  2. In a large bowl, combine eggs, nut/seed butter, maple syrup, banana, cocoa powder, baking soda and vanilla. Whisk together until smooth.
  3. Fold in the chocolate chips and blueberries.
  4. Fill the muffin tins to about ¾ full (and note, you will likely have enough to make about four more in another muffin tin)
  5. Bake 30-35 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.
