These gluten-free banana chocolate chip muffins are perfect to use your ripe bananas and make a quick & easy healthy sweet treat, that is super moist and delicious! Ideal for breakfast or snack. Dairy-free



2 ripe bananas

1 large organic egg

1/2 cup of pitted dates

1/2 tbsp of baking powder

1 cup of buckwheat flour

1/2 tsp of cinnamon

1/2 tsp of vanilla essence

1/4 cup of unsweetened plant-based milk (I use almond)

1/4 cup of coconut oil

1/2 cup of 70% chocolate chips or mini chocolate chips


  1. Combine all the ingredients except the chocolate chips in a high-speed blender until all the ingredients are nicely blended. Transfer the banana muffins mixture to a large mixing bowl and combine with the chocolate chips using a rubber spatula.
  2. Divide the muffin batter evenly into muffins cups (use paper cups if you're using a tin muffin tray), and bake in the oven at 180 degree Celsius in top and bottom baking mode for 20-25 minutes. Be mindful to not overcook them!
  3. Get them out of the tin tray, and let them cool before eating. Enjoy!!


Be mindful of the oven settings & time - I highly recommend using the top and bottom baking mode (avoid fan mode).

Use ripe bananas - they're naturally sweeter!

Do not open the oven before 20 minutes of cooking, it will break up the baking and the muffins won't rise as good as they should.

Due to the coconut oil, these muffins can become a bit hard-ish if you're in a really cold place. If so, heat them up for a few seconds in the microwave to soften.

Store at room temperature for up to 5 days.
