Chocolate Banana Muffins (Vegan, Gluten-free)

This is one of my all-time favorites. And since I’ve discovered that you actually don’t need any additional sugar, I love it even more!

Vegan Gluten-free Chocolate Banana Muffins

The bananas add a beautiful sweetness and moisture; and as long as the initial dough is not too dry, the muffins will stay moist for a few days.

Vegan Gluten-free Chocolate Banana Muffins

For 6 medium sized muffins you’ll need:

5 very ripe FAIR-TRADE bananas
1 cup (140g) buckwheat flour
1/2 cup (70g) brown rice flour
3/4 cup (75g) FAIR TRADE cocoa powder
1 tablespoon fiber husk
2 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 pinch salt

2 tablespoon olive oil
1 cup water


1. Preheat the oven to 190°C (top/bottom heat). Prepare the muffin tray.

2. Mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl.

3. Mash the bananas in a medium sized bowl. Add the olive oil and water and stir well.

4. Pour the banana mixture into the bowl with the dry ingredients. Mix it well but avoid stirring it too long otherwise the dough won’t rise properly.

5. Scoop the dough into the muffin tray. It might seem like a little too much but it should work well.

6. Bake for approx 30 minutes at 190°C (depending on your stove). When an inserted wooden skewer comes out almost completely dry, they are ready.

Enjoy! 🙂
