Servings
Makes 12 muffins

Ingredients

  • 2 large eggs

  • ¼ cup milk or unsweetened dairy-free milk

  • 3 medium-sized very ripe bananas, peeled

  • ¼ cup honey or maple syrup 

  • 1½ cups hazelnut meal/flour

  • ½ cup plain or vanilla plant-based protein powder

  • 1 tsp. cinnamon

  • ½ tsp. baking powder

  • ½ tsp. baking soda

  • ¼ tsp. salt

  • ½ cup dark chocolate chips

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Place eggs, milk, bananas, and honey in blender or food processor, and blend until smooth. Blend in hazelnut flour, protein powder, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Stir in chocolate chips.
  2. Divide batter among 12 standard-sized greased or paper-lined muffin cups. Bake 22–25 minutes until set and lightly browned on top, so that a toothpick inserted into center of muffin comes out nearly clean. Let cool a few minutes before unmolding and cooling completely on metal rack. Chill up to five days.
