Ingredients

For Muffins

  • 1/4 cup almond flour
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 1/4 cup oats
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 cup banana mashed
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil melted
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 egg whole
  • 1 egg white
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup mini semisweet chocolate chips

For Peanut Butter Icing

  • 1/4 cup peanut butter creamy, no sugar added
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil

Instructions

For Muffins

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly spray muffin tin with non-stick spray or line with muffin cup liners.
  • Stir together almond flour, coconut flour, oats, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  • In a medium mixing bowl, combine banana, coconut oil, honey, egg, egg white, and vanilla. Whisk well. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the banana mixture until just combined. Be careful not to over mix, a few lumps are ok! Add the chocolate chips and gently fold into batter.
  • Fill muffin cups 3/4 full. Bake 15 to 20 minutes until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Drizzle with peanut butter icing.
  • OPTION: 2 tablespoons of vanilla protein powder can be added with the dry ingredients if desired.

For Peanut Butter Icing

  • In a small saucepan on low heat, combine all ingredients and stir contently until all ingredients are melted and combined. The mixture should drizzle easily off a spoon, if not add a tablespoon of water until proper consistency is reached. Drizzle one teaspoon over the top of the Chocolate Chip Protein Cupcakes.
