flourless peanut butter chocolate chip muffins

I’ve been wanting to share this recipe with you for a while now, but they don’t stick around long enough to photograph!  I’ve made them every week since I found the recipe on Pinterest from the blog www.averiecooks.com  She has some wonderful recipes for sweet treats, you should check it out!

This recipe is completely grain free, but you would never know because these mini-muffins are so plump and doughy!

Flourless Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Muffins

(makes 3 dozen mini-muffins)

2 ripe bananas

2 eggs

1 cup smooth peanut butter

1/4 cup honey

2 tablespoons vanilla extract

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

pinch of sea salt

chocolate chips for top

-Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Coat a mini-muffin tin with cooking spray.

-In a blender, add bananas, eggs, peanut butter, honey, vanilla, baking soda and sea salt.  Blend until a smooth batter is formed, around 1-2 minutes depending on the type of blender you use.

-Using a tablespoon, scoop batter into mini-muffin cups, filling to 2/3 full.  Top with a few chocolate chips.  (I added 3 to each mini-muffin)

-Bake for 8-10 minutes or until tops are set and toothpick inserted comes out clean.

-Let cool for 10 minutes and enjoy!

You can find the original recipe here.  Note:  I doubled the original recipe and also altered it a little by cutting back on the amount of honey used.  She recommends using peanut butter such as JIF.  Please don’t do that!  Find a smooth all-nautral peanut butter instead!
