  • 2.5 cups almond flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 4-5 ripe bananas
  • 3 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips, or cacao nibs


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and grease a 12-cup muffin pan.
  • In a large mixing bowl, mix together almond flour, baking soda, baking powder, and cinnamon using a fork.
  • In a separate, smaller mixing bowl, take 4 ripe bananas and gently smash using a fork or potato masher.  You want your bananas to still be chunky. Add vanilla extract and syrup.  Gently stir to combine.
  • Take wet ingredients and pour into dry ingredient mixing bowl.  Add egg and mix to combine everything.
  • Fold in chocolate chips.
  • Add batter to greased muffin pan.  Fill to just below the top.  
  • Top with extra banana slices, syrup, and or chocolate chips.
  • Bake for 25-30 min.  Test at 25 min using a toothpick or small knife to gently poke through the center of one of the muffins. If the toothpick/knife comes out clean, remove muffins from oven.
  • Let cool before removing from muffin pan.
