My chocolate peanut butter banana muffins are moist and flavorful, and have just the consistency you’d expect in a muffin. Crumbly and soft. Why do I mention this? They are gluten free – no need for flour in these muffins! I’ve also replaced the refined sugar and use maple syrup instead. You’ll feel good about snacking on these muffins because you know exactly what ingredients are inside.
These muffins are a trifecta of flavor – you’ve got chocolate, peanut butter, and bananas. Somehow, all flavors take a starring role in these muffins, which are insanely addictive. Plus, they have just a hint of sweetness from the bananas and maple syrup.
You’ll want to use very ripe bananas for this recipe – they’ll provide additional sweetness. They are also easier to blend into the batter if you don’t like seeing banana bits in your muffins. If desired, use a blender! This will provide a smooth consistency in your batter.
