These muffins are full of fresh bananas, chocolate chips and kept gluten free for a healthy and tasty quick grab-and-go breakfast or as an easy snack.

Peanut butter chocolate chip muffins

These muffins have the best of all worlds! Chocolate and peanut butter are added to my gluten-free banana muffins and baked up perfectly. These are a great option for a grab-and-go breakfast, for a lunchbox or even as just a snack with a cup of coffee or tea. While I kept this gluten free you certainly don't have to do so. Simply replace the gluten-free flour with regular all-purpose flour if you desire. I make these on Sundays and they keep well in an airtight container for several days.

Gluten-free peanut butter banana chocolate chip muffins recipe

Yields 10-12 muffins

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups gluten-free flour (I used Bob's Red Mill brand)
  • 1/4 cup ground flax seeds (also known as flax meal)
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 very ripe bananas, mashed
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter or almond butter
  • 1/2 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup agave nectar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a muffin pan with liners or spray generously with nonstick cooking spray and set aside.
  2. In a mixing bowl, add all of the dry ingredients together. In a separate mixing bowl, add all of the wet ingredients. Using a hand mixer, blend the wet ingredients until smooth.
  3. Add the wet batter into the dry ingredients mixing well finally folding in the chocolate chips. Using a cookie scoop or a spoon, fill each muffin cup with the batter about 3/4 of the way.
  4. Bake the muffins for about 15 to 18 minutes or until the muffins are golden brown and baked completely.
  5. Remove from the oven and allow to cool before serving. Store in an airtight container for several days.
