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 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.
