Coconut Banana Oat Muffins

I was looking to make a healthy snack for my kids and had some bananas to use up, so was inspired by one of my favorite recipes from @daniellasilvercooks first cookbook, the Silver Platter. They are based on the Banana Chocolate Chip Cake (an absolutely delicious cake) from that book.

2 eggs
1 cup coconut sugar
1/2 cup grapeseed oil
1 tsp vanilla
2 ripe bananas, mashed
4 tbsp nut butter
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup oats
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
Pinch of salt
3/4 cup soy milk
Juice of 1/2 lemon
1 tbsp unsweetened shredded coconut
1 cup chocolate chips or blueberries

Preheat oven to 350°F.
In a large mixing bowl, mix together eggs and sugar, beat well.
Add oil and vanilla, mix until well incorporated. Then add bananas and nut butter and mix.
Add the dry ingredients to the bowl and mix them until just incorporated.
Slowly mix in the soy milk and lemon juice.
Finally fold in coconut and blueberries or chocolate chips.
Pour into muffin cups (I do so using 1/4 cup measuring spoon). Bake for 20-22 minutes, until toothpick comes out clean
Yield – 18 muffins .

Protein Packed Banana Chocolate Muffins

I’m always looking for the perfect grab and go snack, breakfast or dessert that’s actually healthy and guilt free. These muffins hit the spot and are approved but my 3 pickiest critics 👩🏼👧🏻👶🏻

1 can black beans, drained 
2 ripe bananas 🍌(overripe even)
3 medjool dates, pits removed (can add up to 3 more for added sweetness)
3 eggs 🥚 
1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt 
1 tsp vanilla 
3 Tbsp coconut 🥥 oil, melted 
2 tbsp cocoa 
1 cup oatmeal 
1 tsp baking soda 
1/4-1/2 cup dark chocolate 🍫 chips
12 slices of banana for garnish 

Preheat oven to 350°F. 
In a food processor, process all ingredients, except banana slices and chocolate chips, until smooth. 
Gently mix in chocolate chips. Divide mixture equally into muffin tin. 
Bake 20-30 minutes (it took me 30 minutes using a silicon baking pan but probably less time with metal – check using a toothpick). Enjoy!
