Raspberry Chocolate Chip Muffins

These raspberry chocolate chip banana muffins are a flavor match made in heaven! Seriously, have you ever tried fresh raspberries, melty bananas, and gooey chocolate chips all together? They’re basically impossible to love. Don’t be surprised if they all disappear right after you bake them!

Why are these Raspberry Chocolate Chip Muffins healthy?

There’s no need to worry about allergens

They’re nut-free, dairy-free, grain-free, gluten-free, and soy-free, using no refined oils or refined sugar. Perfect for anyone with allergies.

They’re easy to make egg-free

You can either use a real egg, or a gelatin egg if you don’t tolerate eggs. I haven’t tried to make these with a flax egg.

 

How to Make These Raspberry Chocolate Chip Muffins

  • Preheat oven: Preheat the oven to 375 F and line a muffin tin with 6-7 muffin liners.
  • Prepare muffin mixture: Combine the coconut oil, maple syrup and banana in a medium bowl and mix well to combine. Sift the tigernut and coconut flour together, along with the cinnamon, salt, and baking soda. Add the coconut oil mixture to the dry ingredients and stir well.
  • Make gelatin egg: For the gelatin egg (sub 1 regular egg if tolerated) add the water to a small saucepot and slowly pour over the 1 tbsp gelatin.  Allow the mixture to rest over 2-3 minutes until hardened. Place the pot on the stove and turn in on low heat. Remove from heat once the mixture turns to liquid. Vigorously whisk the gelatin egg until it becomes frothy. Add the gelatin egg to the batter immediately and mix to combine.
  • Assemble muffins: Fold in the chocolate chips and raspberries, reserving some for the tops of the muffins. Spoon the batter into the muffin liners, filling about 3/4th of the way. Top with extra raspberries and chocolate chips.
  • Bake & serve: Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted. Transfer to a cooling rack and allow to cool completely before serving.
