These gluten-free double chocolate banana muffins are packed full of rich chocolate-y goodness, all while being gluten, dairy & refined sugar-free!


  • 2 medium sized ripe bananas, mashed (lots of brown spots are ideal for banana muffins)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp pink salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar (or granulated sweetener of choice, I like this for a low-sugar option)
  • 1/4 cup avocado or melted coconut oil (or melted butter/ghee)
  • 1/2 cup cacao powder or unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 + 1/4 cups gluten-free flour (this is my favourite)
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips (I like these for dairy-free & these for sugar-free)


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Line a muffin pan with muffin liners.
  3. In a large mixing bowl add your mashed banana, vanilla, pink salt, baking soda, & coconut sugar & mix together well.
  4. Mix in the rest of the ingredients until combined adding the chocolate chips last.
  5. Pour the batter into you prepared muffin pan, filling each until about 3/4 full.
  6. Bake for 11-15 minutes or until a fork or knife comes out relatively clean. The top should be bouncy to the touch. 
  7. Remove from the oven & let cool slightly before removing from the muffin pan.
  8. Store in an air-sealed container & enjoy!
