Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 1/2 tablespoon coconut oil, melted and cooled
  • 2 tablespoons creamy almond butter or peanut butter

  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips, plus more for adding on top

Chef notes

This is the recipe for when you are craving banana bread, but only have one banana to make it with! I also love the fact that this is a small-batch recipe, so if you're just cooking for one or two, there's nothing to waste. 

Technique tip: Mix wet and dry ingredients separately to ensure even incorporation.

Swap option: Instead of almond butter, you can use peanut butter or cashew butter. Instead of egg, you can use a "flax egg" (just mix 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed mixed with 3 tablespoons water, leave it to thicken into a gel-like consistency for about 5 minutes). Instead of maple syrup, you can also use honey.

Preparation

1.

Preheat oven to 350°F.

2.

Cream together mashed banana with beaten egg, almond butter, maple syrup, and melted coconut oil. Make sure the coconut oil has cooled for a few minutes so it doesn't scramble the egg. 

3.

In a separate bowl, whisk together almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.

4.

Combine wet and dry ingredients. Gently fold in chocolate chips.

5.

Lightly grease a cookie sheet with coconut oil, and form batter into four muffin tops. Place extra chocolate chips on top.

6.

Bake for 15-20 minutes until edges are golden brown. Serve immediately or store in an air-tight container for an easy on-the-go snack.
