Ingredients
  

  • 2 Bananas
  • 1/3 cup Jaggery Powder
  • 1/4 cup Oil I used Avocado Oil for this recipe, use any vegetable oil that you have
  • 3 Eggs
  • 1 1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 2 cups Blanched Almond Flour
  • 1 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Ground Cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp Ground Nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chunks You can even use same amount of Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips here

Instructions
 

  • Mash the bananas in a bowl. Now add jaggery powder, eggs, oil and vanilla extract. With a hand whisk, mix everything together till all the ingredients are properly blended. Do not over-mix. The wet ingredients mixture is now ready.
  • To the wet mixture, add blanched almond flour, baking soda, salt, ground cinnamon and ground nutmeg. Again, mix everything together till you see a smooth blended mixture and there are no lumps seen. Please make sure not to over-mix.
  • Now add the semi-sweet chocolate chunks to the muffins batter and mix everything together again.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degree F (i.e. 180 degree Celsius). Scoop out 2-3 tablespoons of mixture and pour into the lined or greased muffin cups (To grease the muffin pan, rub the muffin cups with little oil and then optionally, lightly dust each individual cup with a little flour). I was able to make 12 muffins in total.
  • Once the oven is pre-heated, bake the muffins in the oven for around 25-30 minutes or till the muffins are done using the toothpick test, that is, when the inserted toothpick in the muffin comes out clean (I got my muffins ready in exactly 27 minutes). Remove the muffins from the oven, and allow them to cool for 5-10 minutes.
  • The Healthy Gluten Free Almond Flour Banana Muffins are ready to be served warm, or these can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for a week!

Notes

  • Jaggery Powder – If Jaggery Powder is not available, you can replace it with equal amount of Organic Coconut Sugar or Unrefined Cane Sugar.
  • Chocolate Chunks – You can swap the chocolate chunks with equal amount of semi-sweet chocolate chips or chopped nuts of your choice. Or even better, just skip them completely to create perfect healthy sugar free breakfast muffins.
  • Don’t over mix the batter. Over-mixing may result in air pockets which get formed on top and inside of the baked goods. I would advise to gently fold in the batter till you see a uniform mixture being formed.
  • The muffin batter will not be runny like the usual white or wheat flour muffin batters. So, please refrain from adding more liquid ingredients to it.
