Almond Butter Muffins with Bananas & Chocolate Chips

 My Dad recently discovered almond butter, and he loves it! I decided to make him these muffins for Father's Day brunch.


Almond Butter Muffins with Bananas & Chocolate Chips
makes 12 muffins, adapted from made by girl

2 C flour
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp baking powder
2 tsp ground flax seed
2 tsp vanilla
2/3 C sugar
3 bananas
1/3 C coconut oil
2/3 cup chocolate chips or roughly chopped chocolate
1/4 C almond milk
1/2 C almond butter (can vary depending on how much you want on top of muffins)
handful of sliced almonds for the topping (optional)

Preheat oven to 350.

In a large bowl, mash up your bananas. Add in the sugar, oil, vanilla and mix. Stir in flour, baking soda, baking powder, flax, and chocolate chips. Add in almond milk and mix well. Your batter should be pretty thick. Fill up muffin liners about 3/4 full.

With a spoon, form a small hole in the center of the batter and put in your spoonful of almond butter. Top with a sprinkle of sliced almonds.
Bake for 30 minutes.

These were delicious! I love banana bread, and these had a similar taste, but with other fun flavors added in. I highly recommend them.
