Healthy Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

Everyone needs a go-to banana chocolate chip muffin recipe in their life. Well, I think so anyway. A banana chocolate chip muffin symbolizes so many things to me: childhood, road trips, comfort, and the list goes on.

So with that, here I present to you a healthy version of a classic banana chocolate chip muffin. It’s perfectly moist, fluffy, and everything you could ever look for in a muffin.

“Healthy” Ingredients

While no food is inherently good or bad in my opinion, I love to make my recipes with a nutrient-conscious approach if you haven’t noticed already;)

For example, I use oat flour in a lot of my recipes instead of regular flour. This does not mean white flour is the devil… I eat bread almost every day, and I’m doing just fine. However, I like to think of snacks as an opportunity to 1. eat cause I’m hungry duh, and 2. get a dose of macros and micros to make my body happy.

On another note, I like to try and make recipes that anyone can eat, so whether you are gluten-free, dairy-free, or whatever the case may be, I hope you can find some of my recipes to your liking.

Alternatives

You can make these muffins vegan by swapping out the eggs for a flax egg, make them dairy-free or vegan by using your selected chocolate chips… You can also use regular flour if you just ran out of oats this morning! Think of the recipe as something you should follow as guidance, but not a rulebook. That’s how I got here, making my own versions of recipes to share with you peeps.

Enjoy friends!

I'd like to consider myself a food and coffee enthusiast. I always get excited to create eat flavourful recipes that fuel my mind and my body. A few of my favourite foods consist of salads (the fun kind), sourdough bread, avocados, and almond butter. My coffee order is an iced americano with oatmilk no matter the weather.
