(optional) organic semi sweet chocolate broken into small pieces


1. Preheat oven to 350 F and place parchment cups into your muffin tin.

2. Combine the amaranth flour, oat flour, cacao powder, baking powder, salt and baking soda in a large bowl and set aside.

3. Using a whisk, combine the eggs and agave until light and add in the bananas, coconut oil, and almond milk.

4. Pour the liquid mixture into the center of the dry mixture and blend well.

5. Pour the batter into the muffin cups.

    Hi Hannah!

  5. Where do you go out to eat? It seems as though you are such a conscientious eater the options would be slimmed considerably! ;)

  6. I just made these and they are amazing! I had to substitute the agave syrup with maple syrup but I don’t think any damage was done by doing that ;) Thank you for sharing this recipe!
