Here are the instructions, happy baking!

Chunky Double Chocolate Banana Muffins
(makes 12 muffins)

1 ½ cup buckwheat flour
3 tbsp cacao powder
1 ½ tsp baking powder
½ baking soda

1 ripe banana
12 fresh medjool dates, pitted
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1 – 1 ¼ cup plant mylk of choice

¾ cup dark chocolate chips (non-dairy)
1 ripe banana, diced

Start by preheating oven to 175°C. Grease a muffin pan with dash of coconut oil or use paper liners.

In a large bowl mix all the dry ingredients together, stir well to combine.

Place peeled and chopped banana, pitted medjool dates, vanilla extract and plant mylk (starting with one cup) into a blender/food processor and blend until smooth. Transfer into large bowl with dry ingredients and stir well to combine. If batter appears too dry/thick, add in the remaining dash of plant mylk.

Add chocolate chips and diced banana, carefully stir just a couple times (without mashing the banana) to get everything mixed.

Divide the batter evenly into muffin pan and bake in the oven for about 20 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Remove out of the oven, serve and ENJOY!

Thank you for stopping by, have a beautiful day! 🙂
