Grain free dark chocolate and banana muffins

Inspired by a recipe from glugleglutenfree.com find her banana and chocolate muffin recipe here. I have made some Chocolate and banana muffins. These muffins are grain free, made using ground almonds and cacao. I also added some 85% gluten free dark chocolate which melted inside the muffins, yum!

1/2 tsp sea salt

1/2 tbsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp nutmeg

2-3 ripe bananas

3 large free range eggs

1/4 cup melted coconut oil

1/4 cup raw honey ( for sweeter muffins add 1/2 cup of maple syrup or honey )

1/4 broken chocolate pieces 70% or 85% gluten free I used Lindt excellent ( unsure if this is still gluten free, I now use green and blacks 85% )

The muffins are definitely a dark chocolate flavour and are low sugar, but are perfect for a treat if you are avoiding too much sugar.

Happy baking!
