Gluten-free banana nut chocolate muffins

Note: inspired by the chunky monkey muffins from the book Paleo cravings, with my own modifications.

 

These are amazing if you're looking for something different for breakfast!

 

1 cup tapioca flour (you can substitute up to 1/4 of coconut flour for this)

 

1 tsp baking soda

 

1/2 cup butter

 

1 1/2 tbsp honey (more or less depending on personal taste)

 

1 medium to large banana

 

1 tsp vanilla

 

4 eggs

 

3/4 bar 86 dark chocolate, chopped

 

1 cup walnuts

 

Mix dry and wet ingredients separately, then combine. Add chocolate and walnuts. Put into a muffin tin and bake at 350 degrees for about 20 - 25 minutes.

 

Makes 12 muffins.

 

Per 1 muffin: 241 calories, 13.25 g fat, 12.6 g carbs, 4.37 g protein.

 

Enjoy!

I was really surprised when I saw the nutrition facts on here.  Honestly, compared to a lot of mix and bake muffins these are awesome!  I've been trying to find some baking recipes, though I really suck at them, for my Mom since she has a hard time not eating 4-5 of these kinds of sweets.  I bet since this is healthier and more wholesome ingredients that she also wouldn't feel like she needs to eat 5.  Thanks for the recipe and if you have more dessert ideas please post them!
