Einkorn Chocolate Banana Muffins

This post may contain affiliate links. Please read our disclosure policy.

We are always in the mood for anything chocolaty whether it is a cake, cookie, ice cream or one of these wonderful Einkorn Chocolate Banana Muffins.  And, there is a double dose of chocolate as we added a healthy portion of chocolate chips to the batter.

Rich, low fat, chocolate banana muffins made with einkorn flour, an ancient grain with a healthy gluten and a delicious flavor.  These are a  clean eating breakfast muffin. They are made with the incredibly healthy einkorn flour that has what I call the good gluten.

Although the gluten in einkorn has a healthier composition of proteins,  it is not recommended for anyone with Celiac disease. However many people with gluten sensitivities find they can easily tolerate einkorn.  For more information about why einkorn is easier to digest, check out the information by einkorn.com.

The magic to these rich, moist muffins is in the bananas.  Choose nice ripe bananas and mash them with a fork or potato masher.  I like to use my pastry blender as those little sharp tines do fast work.  Did you know that you can freeze ripe bananas right in their skin?  That is kinda handy as they are right there when you need them.  Plus when they thaw out they are easier to mash.

These muffins can be mixed up without even using your stand mixer.  Not even your little electric hand mixer either.  Just measure out the dry ingredients in a large bowl and the wet ingredients in a smaller bowl, then fold the wet ingredients into the bowl of dry ingredients until well combined.  Stir in the chips and that’s it!  They are ready to be portioned into the paper muffin liners and popped into the oven.

These muffins are so easy to put together that you can actually mix them in ten minutes, bake them for 22-minutes and have a plate of nice warm, einkorn chocolate-banana muffins on the table by the time the kids are dressed for school.  Just the wonderful fragrance floating through the house will wake them up, get them out of bed and to the table.  What a great start for their day!

I can hardly believe these delicious muffins contain less than 200 calories per muffin. They look delicious enough to eat for dessert but healthy enough for a snack or breakfast! Yummy! I can't wait to try this. Luci’s Morsels | fashion. food. frivolity.

Hey Luci, I hope you like them. The banana replaces a lot of fat and saves on so many calories.
