Light, fluffy, perfectly sweet and delicious. These one-bowl banana muffins are easy to make, use 9 simple ingredients, and can be whipped up in under 30 mins. Sounding good? Read on to find out how you can make them!

What better way to use up over-ripe bananas than my making a batch of banana muffins? In fact, the riper your bananas are, the better! Those little brown bits are actually natural sugars breaking down, so in this case, the more brown you see, the sweeter your muffins will be(oo that rhymes :)).

Along with being DELICIOUS, these muffins are free of refined sugar, and can also be made gluten free. They contain vitamins and minerals, healthy fats, superfood cacao, and using buckwheat or wholewheat flour packs in extra fibre and protein. A muffin that’s good for you? Is there anything better?!

Rich dark-chocolate chips pair perfectly with the light, sweet sponge. I love using a super-dark raw chocolate bar in this recipe to contrast against the creamy banana, however any choc works amazing. You can also add nuts, or dried fruit if you fancy.

So. They’re healthy, fluffy, rich, delicious, and all ready to be made by you. Happy baking :).
