Gluten-Free Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

Banana chocolate chip is a popular muffin flavor I hadn't tried yet so they are on the menu this week.  I loved how they turned out!  These muffins look and feel like a treat but they are loaded with protein and are not high in sugar.  I know my kiddos will devour these!

Here is the recipe I used for these muffins:
1.5 cups almond flour
1/2 cup millet flour
1 scoop Naturade pea protein powder
1/4 cup Enjoy Life chocolate chips
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
2 bananas (mashed)
1 cup almond milk
1 egg
1 egg white
I mixed the dry ingredients together.  In a separate bowl, I mashed the two bananas and incorporated the rest of the wet ingredients.  I combined the wet and dry ingredients and folded in the chocolate chips gently. This mix is enough for 7 large muffins.  I baked the muffins at 350F for 23 min.

I love seeing the golden domes on muffins!  The nutritional content of these does not disappoint.  I did not want to have high calorie or sugar content for my young kids.  I'm pleased to see they are well-balanced with a good amount of fat and protein in them.

These muffins have a cake-like feel to them and just the right amount of moisture.  I love how the almond and millet flours always have this effect.

I hope you enjoy these muffins too!  Thank you for reading!
