We needed a quick snack this evening that would satisfy everyone. Sophie wanted to bake so it had to be simple. Andrew was hungry so it had to be wheat and dairy free. Joe is Joe so it had to be sweet. I needed it to be healthy. The outcome was the easy but delicious banana muffins.
In a blender mix-
1/2 cup almond butter
3 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon vanilla
1 tablespoon of chia seeds
1/4 teaspoon baking soda*
Pinch of salt
Add chocolate chips and mix on low
Pour into a pre-sprayed 12 count muffin tin and bake 9 minutes at 400 degrees. Let cool. Enjoy.
I’ve made these before and after they have cooled I’ve put them in a bag for snacks on the go. They hold up well.
*if the kids are making this make sure you help with the baking soda- the other ingredients are forgiving but this one is important to the rise.
