Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins Recipe #CoolerwithAlmondBreeze
I’ve been drinking almond milk for a few years now whether it’s in my smoothies, my coffees (especially my mochas), as cool drink to quench my thirst or my daughter’s personal favourite mixed in with some hot chocolate yum! Lately I’ve been exploring my options for baking with almond milk and I’m happy to say that it’s just as delicious in our baked goods as it is to drink. Our new favourite is making banana chocolate chip muffins with you got it almond milk in them.
These muffins are super moist, fairly light and full of flavour. They rise fairly well but if you want them to rise more you can add a bit more flour and a little less banana but we like them just as they are.
They are not high in sugar as the bananas sweeten them more than enough and of course we’ve got chocolate chips in them so they are plenty sweet. A perfect afternoon snack and treat for me is to sit down have one of these muffins along with my banana berry peach almond milk smoothie. You can check out the smoothie recipe HERE. Oh the delicious flavours.
- 2 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/3 cup almond milk
- 1/3 cup coconut sugar (can substitute for white or brown sugar)
- 1 tbsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp cocao powder
- 1 tbsp vanilla (less if you prefer a more subtle vanilla flavor
- 3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (more if desired)
- 2/3 cup sunflower or safflower oil
- 1 egg
- 2-3 large bananas, mashed (depending on how dense you want it and how much banana flavor)
- Combine all of the dry ingredients (except the chocolate chips) in a large bowl (flour, cinnamon, sugar, baking powder).
- In a separate bowl mash bananas and add the wet ingredients, almond milk, egg, oil and vanilla. Add chocolate chips Mix with a spoon and add to try ingredients.
- It all mixes quite easily so you should be able to mix by hand.
- Add to muffin tin. They don't rise a lot so fill to the top if you wish unless you increased the flour to bananas ratio which could rise more
- Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes
- Let stand for a couple minutes and then put it on a wire rack to cool
I can’t wait to try out a few more recipes I have in mind for my almond milk. I think next on the list is some tasty soups, a creamy one maybe with potato and possibly some biscuits, oh biscuits. I have a weakness for biscuits.
These banana chocolate chip muffins are always a favourite in my home. In fact as soon as I had taken this batch out of the oven my husband and daughter each tried to snag one before they were even on the cooling rack!
