Banana Nut Chocolate Chip Muffins

This is an amazing muffin recipe to make for breakfast, a snack, or dessert. It is made from whole ingredients, is gluten-free, and the best part is, it can be made in one bowl, I mean who doesn’t love an easy clean up?

This recipe uses both oat and almond flour. If you have rolled oats at home you can make the oat flour yourself. Simply blend your oats in a high-speed blender until its fine and viola, you have oat flour.

This recipe calls for walnuts and chocolate chips. However, you can omit either (if you’re crazy enough to omit chocolate) or replace with your favourite nuts, dried fruit, or seeds.

Happy baking!

They are also known as Jerusalem artichokes, a very misleading name because they aren’t anything like an artichoke, and have nothing to do with the Israel. This humble root vegetable is easy to miss at the farmer’s market or grocery store because they’re not all that attractive. Continue reading
