Ingredients And Substitutions
These are the main ingredients and substitutions for Double Chocolate Banana Muffins. Scroll down to the recipe card for a full list of ingredients and instructions.
The base of these muffins are made with all purpose flour. You can make them gluten free by using a 1:1 gluten free flour blend such as Bob’s Red Mill. Alternatively, you can use oat flour.
Use cacao powder for that rich and deep chocolate flavor. You may use coco powder as well.
Baking powder will help these muffins rise and have a nice, fluffy texture.
Salt helps to balance out all the flavors.
Use spotty ripe bananas for best results. These are naturally sweeter and much easier to mash.
Coconut sugar is a great natural sweetener that I love to use in my recipes. You may however use brown sugar, cane sugar or monk fruit sweetener instead.
Coconut oil will help these muffins have a moist flavor and texture. You can use any other type of oil such as Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Avocado Oil or even butter or ghee.
Ground flax adds a great amount of fiber without changing the taste or texture, you can omit if you don’t have any on hand.
Use almond milk, or any other dairy free alternative to keep these muffins dairy free. Otherwise, milk will work as well.
Eggs are going to help these muffins have a fluffy texture while also providing a moist flavor.
Vanilla extract adds flavor to any baked good.
Use dairy free chocolate chips to keep this recipe dairy free, otherwise any type of chocolate will work. Feel free to use a chopped up chocolate bar, chocolate chunks or chocolate chips.
