Chocolate Chips, Bananas ๐ŸŒ and peanut butter ๐Ÿฅœ combine for these ultra delicious, mini muffins.

These Chocolate Peanut Butter and Banana mini muffins are loaded with goodness like belly filling fiber ๐ŸŒพ and just a touch of sweetness. Peanuts and peanut ๐Ÿฅœ butter have gotten a bad rap lately.

While itโ€™s true peanuts have a higher level of omega 6 fatty acids as compared to omega 3s – many of us consume far too many omega 6 fats that can cause inflammation – in moderation, peanuts can be an excellent addition to your way of eating. Peanuts are also grown on the moist ground which can be a breading zone for mycotoxins and mold ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

Okay, thatโ€™s the bad of it, but hereโ€™s the good ๐Ÿ˜‰ โ€ฆ

First off, peanuts are delicious!

When it comes to buying peanut butter (or any foods for that matter) quality is key! I always look for organic peanut butter, I make sure the label has only one ingredient. The one and only ingredient should be organic peanuts and if there is an additional ingredient, salt is acceptable ๐Ÿง‚ Watch out for added sugars, oils and additives that can wreak havoc on your gut ๐Ÿ˜

Peanuts to be fair, arenโ€™t nuts at all but legumes and these little legumes have a pretty โ€œbalancedโ€ supply of all three macronutrients – fats (72%), carbohydrates (13%) and protein (15%). Peanuts are also host to several vitamins and minerals including vitamin E, B3 and B6, Folate, magnesium copper and manganese. Not to mention, peanuts also have their fair share of vitamin B5, iron, zinc selenium and potassium.

So if youโ€™re like me and you enjoy the delicious taste of peanuts and peanut butter, rest assured that in moderation, peanuts do in fact have great benefits to your health ๐Ÿ˜‡

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 350ยฐ fahrenheit. In a large mixing bowl, stir together your oat flour, cinnamon, baking powder and the pinch of pink Himalayan salt. Set aside.

Add the remaining ingredients (except for chocolate chips and flax egg) to a blender. Purรฉe until smooth. Stir the contents of the blender into your mixing bowl followed by the flax egg. Finally, stir in the chocolate chips; you could omit these… but why?

Scoop batter into mini muffin pan and bake for 10-12 minutes. Alternatively, pour batter into a coconut oil greased loaf pan and bake for 45-50 minutesโ€ฆ either way, you wonโ€™t be disappointed!
