Healthy Chocolate Banana muffins | Real Wholefoods only!
Hello chocolate lover readers. I am just entering my third trimester for baby two. The sweet cravings knock at my door again. But I am very happy though. No gestational diabetes this time. I guess I was right. Eating real food is the best way to avoid diabetes again. I prove that it is alright to sweeten your baking with natural banana and a bit of natural sweetener.
There is no need to go on a sugar free diet. So today I share another easy banana muffin recipe. I love those healthy chocolate banana muffins. It is simply sweetened with banana and brown rice syrup. The batter is ready in 5 minutes in my food processor. Plus, it is nut free so I can add them to Emma lunchbox.
I always loved swirl chocolate cake when I was a kid. So I had fun with those healthy chocolate banana muffins. I split the batter in half. I flavored only half with unsweetened cocoa powder. Then I arrange layers of muffin batter in my muffin tin. Give a swirl with a knife in the batter and boom ! You just made cute healthy chocolate banana muffins. And you had fun making them! I love when healthy food is fun. Baking is so relaxing.
For the big chocolate lovers add a square of dark chocolate in the center of each muffins. Everyone loves a runny chocolate muffin. For low sugar options choose 90% cocoa chocolate or even 70% cocoa is fine. It is only a square per muffin !
