  • 12-cup muffin pan
  • High-power blender
  • Food portioning scoop


  • 3 bananas very ripe
  • 3 cup almond flour do not use almond meal, as it can make your muffins drier and less flavorful
  • 3 large eggs if you prefer to use just egg whites, substitute in 3/4 cup of egg whites
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt 
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips plus more for topping


  • Preheat your oven to 350°.
  • Line the muffin pan with paper liners or spray them well with cooking spray.
  • Place the bananas, almond flour, eggs, cinnamon, baking soda and powder, and salt in the container of your blender or food processor.
  • Turn the blender on and process the ingredients until you have a completely smooth batter. It will be thinner than a standard muffin batter.
  • Use a spoon or spatula to stir in 1/2 cup of dark chocolate chips.
  • Scoop about 1/4 cup of the batter into each muffin cup and top with a few more chocolate chips.
  • Bake the banana muffins for 18-20 minutes, or until they are golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.


  • Remove the muffins from the tins and allow them to cool completely before storing them loosely covered.
  • The muffins will keep for up to 3 days stored at room temperature, or up to 5 days in the refrigerator.
