I recently came up with this Paleo Chocolate Banana Bread Muffin recipe.

I needed to use up some ripe bananas and had already made my Cinnamon Banana Bread three times during this Covid quarantine.

I wanted something different. I wanted something chocolatey, but dairy-free.

So I decided to make a chocolate version of banana bread!

Ingredients needed to make these Paleo Chocolate Banana Muffins:

  • olive oil
  • coconut sugar
  • eggs
  • vanilla
  • bananas
  • almond milk
  • almond flour
  • tapioca flour
  • coconut flour
  • baking soda
  • salt
  • cocoa powder
  • dairy-free chocolate chips

Ingredient tips for these Paleo banana chocolate chip muffins:

Tip 1: use ripe bananas here… they result in more banana flavor. They also mash more easily and I find result in a better banana muffin in general.

Tip 2: use light olive oil. It works better for flavor here as well. I like using extra light olive oil for baking. It is very light in color and taste and works well to replace dairy in baking recipes.

If you want, you can use coconut oil, vegetable oil or corn oil, BUT I find olive oil works best here.

Tip 3: Use unsweetened cocoa powder. The coconut sugar and banana make these muffins sweet enough.

How to make these gluten free banana chocolate muffins:

First, you mix together the olive oil, coconut sugar, eggs, vanilla, mashed bananas, and almond milk together in one bowl.

Then you mix together the dry ingredients in another bowl. This includes the almond flour, tapioca flour, coconut flour, baking soda, salt, and cocoa powder together.

Next, you mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and fold in the dairy-free chocolate chips.

And lastly, you bake them!

My oven tends to run hot, so 25 minutes was plenty enough time for these Paleo Chocolate Banana Muffins.
