Ingredients to Make Almond Flour Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

  • 2 cups almond flour: A good gluten-free baking flour.
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup: A natural sweetener.
  • 2 eggs: Helps hold the muffins together
  • 1 tablespoon avocado oil: Can use melted coconut oil or olive oil instead.
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract: Adds flavor.
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder: Almond flour does not rise as well as regular flour so you need to use more baking powder than usual.
  • ¼ teaspoon salt: Helps enhance the flavor.
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips

Storing Almond Flour Muffins

The muffins can stay fresh up to 5 days if you store them in an airtight container either at room temperature or in the fridge. Since they last several days, they’re good to prep ahead of time for breakfast or snacks during the workweek.

You can pop one in the microwave for about 15 seconds if you want to warm it up before eating it.
