- Prep Time: 5
- Cook Time: 20
- Total Time: 25 minutes
- 3 spotty mashed bananas
- 1 flax egg (1 tbsp ground flax + 3 tbsp water)
- ¼ cup maple syrup
- ½ cup almond butter

- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 ½ cups oat flour

- Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
- Make your flax egg by mixing ground flax and water. Let sit refrigerated for 10-30 minutes.
- In a large bowl mix together all of your wet ingredients including the flax egg. Pour in dry ingredients minus chocolate chips and mix until just combined. Lastly fold in your chocolate chips.
- Add batter to a lined or silicone muffin tray. I filled each slot with a little less than ¼ cup of batter.
- Bake muffins for 5 minutes at 400 degrees, turn down the heat to 350 and bake for 16-20 more minutes.
- Let muffins cool, and serve. These muffins can be stored in the fridge for about 5 days or in the freezer for months.
