    Today, I am sharing with you a favorite Paleo banana nut chocolate muffins recipe. I love how they turned out – moist and delicious, but not overly sweet. You can taste the bananas, nuts and chocolate chips – the muffins taste just like banana bread.

    I just returned from a long fun weekend away in Mississippi with my family but I am excited to get back home to my routine, meal planning and cooking at home.

    Paleo Banana Nut Chocolate Muffins

    These muffins are paleo, gluten-free and dairy-free. I made with almond butter, coconut oil, and coconut flour. This combination creates the perfect texture for these paleo banana nut chocolate muffins.

    • 3 eggs
    • 1/4 cup melted coconut oil
    • ½ cup almond butter (or nut butter of choice)
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 1/2 cup coconut flour
    • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
    • 1 tsp baking soda
    • 1 tsp baking powder
    • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
    • pinch of sea salt
    • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
    • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts

    Preparation

    Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Place muffin paper cups in the cups of a muffin pan.

    Add the coconut flour, coconut sugar, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon and sea salt to the wet ingredients and mix well. Fold in the chocolate chunks and chopped walnuts.

    Pour the batter into the prepared muffin pan (fill the paper cups to the top). Bake in the preheated oven for about 25 minutes. A toothpick inserted into the center should come out clean.

    I love using banana to sweeten things!

    How can I store them? They are an after school snack for my son and I find they get a little ‘mushy/moist’ in the fridge and wondering if they freeze and defrost well?

      Delicious Meets Healthy

      Hi Joanna,

      I usually store them on the counter for a few days because they don’t last long. I haven’t tried to store them in the freezer but I guess they might get soggy when you defrost them from all the condensation. Glad to hear that you love them! I love to make them every time I have some leftover bananas that are about to go bad.

    Joanna

    5/5 STARS!
    They are wonderfully delicious! The best recipe ever!

    Aline

    Look delicious! Can I make it as a whole cake? If yes, how long to bake?

      Delicious Meets Healthy

      Hi Aline, That’s a great question! I have never tried to make these muffins as a cake. I will have to give it a try now! 🙂 I guess it might take around 30-40 minutes, or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
