Found this recipe on my cousins blog {The Cell} who found it on another cool site {Multiply Delicious}.  It’s a great CLEAN muffin recipe that is high in protein and low in refined sugar.    It uses unique ingredients like coconut flour, maple syrup, and coconut milk.  But, if you are trying to “clean” up your eating, these ingredients should become a staple in your pantry.

I found this muffin to be salty, sweet with just a hint of coconut and banana.  With 6 eggs total for this recipe, the muffin has a eggy texture, but ends up tasting perfect and being surprisingly filling.  All in all, I like this muffin and so did the rest of my family {which, let’s face it, convincing them can be the hardest part!}

Coconut Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

6 eggs

1/3 cup coconut milk

1 tablespoons maple syrup (optional)

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/4 cup coconut oil, melted

3/4 cup coconut flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 cup mashed ripe bananas (about 3 bananas)

1/2 cup dark chocolate chips, plus additional for sprinkling on tops of muffin

 

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 400.  Line a 12-cup muffin pan with paper liners.

In a large bowl, combine eggs, coconut milk, maple syrup, sea salt, and vanilla extract.  Whisk to combine and set aside.

Sift coconut flour, baking powder, baking soda, and cinnamon into the wet ingredients.  Whisk vigorously until no lumps remain.  Stir in melted coconut oil until well combined.  Fold in banana and chocolate chips until incorporated.

Using a large ice cream scoop, add one level scoop to each muffin cup.  Sprinkle each muffin with a few additional chocolate chips.  Bake muffins for 15 to 18 minutes or until muffins are golden and spring back when pressed gently.  Once baked, cool for 10 minutes.
