Flourless SunButter & Chocolate Muffins

If you have a couple ripe bananas on hand, you’re well on your way to creating some delicious treats! This SunButter & Chocolate Muffins recipe uses simple ingredients and transforms them into moist and flavorful muffins. Let’s get baking!

First, the base of your muffins will be SunButter, ripe bananas, eggs, and baking soda. Additional flavorings will include honey and vanilla extract. The lemon juice is there to prevent the SunButter from turning green (the chlorophyl in sunflower seeds causes a harmless color change during baking, but we don’t want green muffins since it’s not St. Patrick’s Day!). And last, the chocolate chips. You can use dairy-free chocolate chips, if desired.

These muffins are very simple to prepare and take less than 15 minutes to bake. They’re a hit with kids and adults alike. And, what I really love about these is that they are flourless, making them a much less intimidating baking recipe for those who are new to gluten free. Personally, when I first went gluten free, I stuck with recipes like meringues that were naturally gluten free, so I hope if you’re new to GF you’ll feel a bit less intimidated by recipes such as these flourless muffins.
