Paleo Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

8 Jun

Typing this I realize I forgot to take a picture of the finished product…

Usually it’s the opposite. I get a pic of the finished product but forget to take pictures along the way. I like a blog that has pictures of the various steps. I succeeded in that for this recipe but forgot to snap a pic of the muffins when they were finished. I guess you just have to trust me on this one!!! They were so moist and delicious and Austin just ate the last one. So unless I ask him to regurgitate it you don’t get a finished pic. Hopefully, I can fake you out into thinking these were mine.


Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins Recipe

source- not mine

Did I trick you? No? Oh well. Trust me they were greeaaat! So make them.

I am super excited because I got to use something really exciting for the first time while making these. Drum roll please…….


Kitchen Aid!!!! I got this at my shower Sunday. Technically I’m “not supposed to use this until we’re married”. Pshhhhhhhhh. Can’t wait. #sorrynotsorry

I was inspired to make these because my friend Jenna knows I will eat a banana up until they are way past normal brown status, and she threw some of these in my shower present. Can’t let them go to waste!!!!!!

Paleo Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

Makes 1 dozen

3 eggs

2-3 ripe and mushy bananas

1/2 cup coconut flour

1/4 cup maple syrup

1 tbsp olive oil (or coconut oil. didn’t feel like melting it)

1/2 tsp salt

3/4 tsp of baking soda


Mix wet ingredients (bananas, eggs, maple syrup, oil) Then add the dry and mix (by hand or with your awesome Kitchen Aid like I did) until it becomes a batter. The batter will be thick. You can add more syrup or a little almond or coconut milk if it’s too thick.


Thick batter^

Then add chocolate chips. I have been obsessed with these Enjoy Life chocolate chunks. Yeah- they’re not lasting long in my house. I may or may not be grabbing handfuls as I pass by the cabinet.

mega chunks

I love this brand of chocolate. I like it more than regular chocolate. Never going back.


I chopped them up and added them to the batter.

I baked the muffins at 350 for about 25 minutes.


I even snapped an extremely terrible picture of them in the oven but forgot to do one at the end!!! Terrible blogger. I reaaaaaally have to get a better camera.

Does anyone want to give me suggestions for a starter camera for blogging? Seriously considering buying one. I don’t have a fortune to spend.

    Those look great! I have to ask though (as a non-paleo dairy and flour lover)–do they REALLY taste as good as the real thing??

    Jealous of your mixer btw!

      I mean….I don’t even know if I remember what the
      ‘real thing’ tastes like I do so much experimenting in the kitchen. But in my opinion, they’re better!!! My fiance ate them and loved them and he’s the pickiest person alive so that says a lot.

    These look delicious! For blogging, I actually use my iPhone most of the time! It has a pretty good camera in it 🙂

    I honestly think the iPhone takes GREAT pictures. I have a Cannon Rebel but my husband’s iPhone can take some really wonderful shots too 🙂

    Banana muffins are probably my favorite muffins. The addition of chocolate chips sounds awesome! I am thinking that cinnamon chips would be a great addition, too :).
