Directions
  1. Pre-heat oven to 355F/180C. Lightly grease a muffin pan with coconut oil, non-stick cooking spray or with liners.
  2. In a medium size mixing bowl measure and whisk together dry ingredients (oat flour through to sea salt) until evenly dispersed. Note: I recommend using a measuring scale for the ingredients because if you over-measure it will make a difference in the final result! If you do not have a kitchen scale, lightly fluff your flours with a spoon before scooping them up and measuring them.
  3. Mash the bananas in a large bowl and measure to make sure it's exactly 1¼ cups. Add the coconut sugar, vanilla extract, unsulfured molasses and whisk together. Whisk in the cocoa powder until a thick-ish chocolate mixture is formed.
  4. Fold the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and stir together until a thick batter is formed (see photo). You do not have to worry about over-mixing because there is no gluten in the batter. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  5. Scoop the muffin batter into the muffin pan (using an ice cream scoop or a slightly greased ¼ cup measuring cup makes this a lot easier!). There is approximately ¼ heaping cup in each muffin cup. Bake for 14 - 17 minutes, the amount of baking time with depend on your oven. The muffins are ready when an inserted toothpick comes out almost clear. Leave to cool in pan for 10 minutes before removing and transferring to a cooling rack.
Notes
1) Replace coconut sugar with cane sugar or light brown sugar.
2) Feel free to use naturally decaffeinated instant coffee.
3) Make sure all your ingredients are certified vegan and gluten free if necessary.
4) It's really important to leave your muffins to cool for 5 - 10 minutes in the muffin pan before transferring them to a cooling rack so they stay together. Okay, maybe sneak one muffin but leave the rest to cool!
5) You can make your own almond meal and oat flour by blending together oats or almonds in the blender until a fine flour-like consistency is formed.
