Chocolate Chip and Almond Banana Muffins

Chocolate Chip and Almond Banana Muffins
Reading Time: 1 minute

I’m so excited to share this recipe with you guys! I am constantly losing out when I buy bananas. I buy them totally green, blink once and they’re T-O-T-A-L-L-Y done for.

I finally stopped being lazy and tried my hand at banana muffins. I’m not the best baker (y’all know that), but these are AWESOME. They are so springy and moist. They’re also slightly sweet, and I used coconut sugar and honey which are natural, lower GI sweeteners, and the bananas add a little sweetness – meaning they won’t spike your blood sugar as quickly.

I hope you enjoy! The smell of toasted almonds and bananas is filling my kitchen, and I’m in love!
