  • muffin pan
  • muffin liners
  • large bowl
  • whisk


Dry Ingredients

  • 1 cup white whole wheat flour⁣ 130 g
  • ½ cup cacao powder
  • ½ cup coconut sugar⁣
  • 2 tablespoons baking powder⁣
  • 1 teaspoon espresso powder
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt⁣

Wet Ingredients⁣

  • 2 flax eggs 2 tablespoons ground flax seeds + 6 tablespoons water
  • 3-4 ripe bananas⁣ 1.5 cups mashed
  • cup maple syrup⁣
  • ¼ cup vegan yogurt
  • ½ cup coconut oil
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

To fold in

  • ¾ cup chocolate chips


  • In a large bowl, peel and mash the bananas. Then add the rest of the wet ingredients and whisk them to combine.
  • Next, add the dry ingredients and combine them well with the wet ingredients.
  • Finally, fold in the chocolate chips.
  • Line a muffin pan with muffin liners. I decided to make jumbo muffins and used tulip liners to give the muffins more of a bakery-style feel. This is totally optional- you can use a regular-sized muffin tin and use normal muffin liners if you prefer.
  • If you make jumbo muffins, you will get about 6 muffins. If you make them in a regular-sized muffin pan, you will get about 12 muffins.
  • Bake the muffins at 350*F/ 175*C for 30-35 minutes if you are making jumbo muffins, or 25-30 minutes if you are making regular-sized muffins.
  • To check if the muffins are done, you can stick a toothpick in the center of the muffin. If the toothpick comes out clean, the muffins are done baking.
  • Once the muffins are done baking, remove them from the oven and place them on a cooling rack to cool off at room temperature.
  • Once they have cooled off, dig in and enjoy!
