Healthy Gluten Free Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

My five year old son thinks muffins are cupcakes and who am I to crush his dreams?
He's been asking for "cupcakes" the last few days so today, I decided to whip up some super easy & healthy gluten free banana chocolate chip muffins for an after school snack.

What I love about these muffins is that there's no refined sugar in these muffins at all.

They get their sweetness from the bananas, honey and apple sauce.

I won't waste anymore time talking to you guys, lets get straight to the recipe! 


Healthy Gluten Free Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins


Ingredients

1.5 cups of 1:1 gluten free flour 
(you can also use white or whole wheat)
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
3 bananas mashed
1/4 cup of honey 
(or maple syrup)
1 tbsp vanilla extract
1 tbsp olive oil
1 egg
1/2 cup of apple sauce
(can substitute for yogurt)
1 tbsp milk of choice 
( I used unsweetened almond)
1/2 cup of chocolate chips 
(of course you can never have too many chocolate chips)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 
Fill muffin tin with liners.
In a bowl, mix flour, baking soda & salt.

In a separate bowl, mix bananas, honey, vanilla, oil, egg, milk and apple sauce until well blended.

Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients.
Mix until combined.

Divide batter into muffin liners.
