Kid Friendly Gluten Free Mini Chocolate Chip Muffins

This is a simple gluten free recipe made with healthy ingredients.  These mini muffins taste so delicious no one is going to know they are:

  • gluten-free
  • dairy-free
  • refined-sugar free
  • nut-free 
  • and plant based.

When my kids were little I was not baking with the best quality ingredients.  At the time I thought I was but now I know that I wasn't.  I really could have used a recipe like this.

This is a quick healthy recipe that can be made on the weekend and packaged into bundles of 3 and frozen.  Pop a package out of the freezer and put it right in the lunch box.

    Lets do this....get out your mixing bowl and those ripe bananas and lets go.

    Start with the wet ingredients; mash the banana and mix in the pure maple syrup, coconut oil, vanilla and coconut milk.  

    Add the dry ingredients and stir.  And don't forget those mini chocolate chips.  My favourite brand of chocolate  chips is 'Enjoy Life'.

    Scoop into your muffin tin and bake.

    Sprinkle shredded coconut on top.  I like to mix a little cinnamon in with the shredded coconut.  Anywhere you can add in extra nutrition go for it.

    Mmmmm so good.  Even if you are not a gluten free eater your still going to love them!

    Once they come out of the oven, let cool and munch on some maybe share a few with the neighbours and and then package them up in bundles of 3.  Store them in the freezer so anytime you need a grab and go snack you are ready.
