Banana Chocolate Chip Flax Muffins

muffins_Fotor

I am always looking for the perfect grain free, sugar-free recipe and I found inspiration over at Healthful Pursuit.  I had not really used ground flax seeds in baking before seeing Leanne Vogel’s recipe.  Who knew they could be so versatile!  As you can see I have changed Leanne’s recipe quite a bit to fit my personal diet choices.  I mention her recipe to give her kudos for the inspiration that spring boarded my muffin creation.  I hope you enjoy!

Ingredients:

3 ripe bananas
1 1/2 cups unsalted almond butter
6 eggs
3/4 cup nut milk or water
1 tablespoon of vanilla
3/4 cup ground flaxseed
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 10 ounce package of dark chocolate chips (Lily’s is a brand that uses stevia to sweeten their chips)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a 12  or 18 count muffin tin with muffin liners.
Mix all ingredients together (except the chocolate chips) in a high powered blender.  I use a Vitamix.  Put mixture into a large bowl and add chocolate chips.  Stir.  Fill muffin liners full and pop into oven for 20 minutes.  Makes 18 muffins.
