Flourless Chocolate Nut Butter Muffins

Written by bridget on . Posted in Ravishing Recipes

flourless chocolate muffin

Today Im SUPER excited to share with you a super delicious and healthy creation by the ever lovely, and incredibly talented, Amy of Amy’s Piece of Cake

I TRULY believe that living a healthy lifestyle should be a FULL TIME YES experience!

What I mean by that is, in each and every moment, your body, your mind, your soul, is saying “YES! I LOVE this!”

Every time I eat, every time I workout, every time I meditate, get in to nature, connect with friends, listen to my intuition, there is a sense of “YES!” in all the cells of my body!

This is what I believe true health is about.

Living in alignment with what feels RIGHT and GOOD and TRUE for you!

Anywho, without further ado, here is a brilliant recipe that you can try and add to your “healthy living is delicious” repertoire.

Ive been talking a lot about going for 2 & 5 lately in Facey and Insta world, and this little beauty actually contains some fruity, goodness allowing you to “have your cake and eat it too”!

Be sure to let me know what you think of this one! bridget@newleafnutrition.com.au, or come and say hi on Facebook or in Insta!

Flourless Chocolate Nut Butter Muffins
(8 muffins)

3 small bananas, mashed with a fork (approx. 350 to 400 grams)
3 tbsp maple syrup (agave nectar works fine too)
2 dl (little less than 1 american cup) nut butter of choice (I used peanut butter)
3 tbsp (raw) cocoa

Optional but they will be better:
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp bicarbonate

For garnish (if you wish):
some dark chocolate chips or chopped dark chocolate
walnuts, roughly chopped

Method:

Preheat oven to 175C/350F and line or lightly grease a muffin tin.

Mash the bananas in a bowl and add the remaining ingredients.

Stir with a spoon and spoon the batter into muffin tins about 2/3 full.

Garnish with chopped dark chocolate and walnuts if you wish.

Bake for about 15 to 20 minutes.

Insert a toothpick in the center and see if it comes out clean.

If you want them a bit gooey then just take them out earlier from the oven

Wait until they are completely cooled before removing them from the muffin tin.

Enjoy lots, mmm!
