  • 3-4 medium bananas about 1⅔ cups mashed
  • 3 eggs room temperature
  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil melted
  • 1 teaspoon real vanilla extract
  • cup creamy almond butter
  • cup coconut flour
  • ¾ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¾ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • cup ground flax seeds optional
  • 4 ounces chocolate chips or chunks


  • Line a muffin pan with paper liners or coat with coconut oil, then preheat the oven to 350ºF.
  • In a large bowl or mixer, combine the mashed bananas, eggs, softened coconut oil, vanilla extract and almond butter until fully combined. 
  • Add your dry ingredients including the coconut flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt (flax seed if using) to the wet ingredients and mix well. Use a whisk or an electric mixer. With a spatula, fold in chocolate chips or chunks.
  • Fill each of the 12 muffin cups about 2/3 of the way full with batter. Top with more chocolate chunks or chips, if desired. 
  • Bake for about 20 minutes. To check for doneness, insert a toothpick into the center. It will come out clean when done.  Also, the muffins should spring back when poked with a finger (not stay indented).
  • Remove from oven and allow to cool in the pan on a wire rack for about ½ hour. Take muffins out of the pan and allow to fully cool.


To store, place in an airtight container in the refrigerator for about a 5 days.
