Calling all chocoholics and banana bread lovers!: These muffins may just be your new favorite treat!

A mash up of sultry chocolate cake and banana bread, these double chocolate delights contain a little something for everyone. It’s also a riff off my classic Paleo Banana Bread recipe.

These healthy muffs are mouth-watering enough to be considered dessert, but nutritious enough to be considered snack. Post-workout refuel? Get it!

Made with almond flour, cacao powder, and ripe bananas, these muffins are squeaky clean. They are gluten-free (and grain-free), oil-free, and dairy-free. 

Making these double chocolate banana bread muffins is as easy as can be.

How to Make Chocolate Banana Bread Muffins:

All we do to prepare the muffin batter is blend everything except for the chocolate chips in a blender. Once blended, we fold in the chocolate chips, transfer the batter to a muffin tray and bake!

Change it up by added chopped nuts and get wild with your chocolate selection.

Can I Make This Recipe Using Coconut Flour?:

Yes, but no. You can absolutely make chocolate banana bread muffins using coconut flour, but the whole recipe will be different. If you want to make them using coconut flour, follow my recipe for Coconut Flour Banana Bread, but add 1/2 cup of cocoa powder and 1/2 cup chocolate chips.

Follow the ingredients on that recipe, but prepare it in a muffin tray and bake for 20 to 30 minutes.

Batches on batches on batches aaaaand GO!

I just made these and love them! They were a bit too dark for me though! For next time, would you advise maybe cutting the cocoa powder in half if I prefer it a bit sweeter?

Thanks!! :) :)

You could add more pure maple syrup or banana, or cut down on the amount of cocoa powder...any of those options will work for sweeter muffins! xoxo

Can you replace almond flour with spelt flour 1:1?

Hi there,

I haven't tested the recipe using spelt flour, so I can't be sure firsthand, but my google search tells me it should be 1/2 cup of spelt flour for every 1 cup of almond flour. I would use this ratio and adjust if the batter looks too runny. Let me know how it turns out! xo

Made these over the weekend, they turned out moist and definitely 'double' chocolate-y. I would have liked them slightly sweeter, perhaps it's the very dark chocolate I used that made the muffins on the bitter side. The recipe, however, is easy and yields the number of muffins as promised.

Made a double batch. Ate one out of the oven and now I don't want to share with my grandchildren. I may need remedial sharing lessons.
