  • These healthy choc chip muffins are great for little kids – and adults! They’re nut-free so you can add them to the school lunchbox. Or you can serve them at kids birthday parties. Just make sure that the choc chips you use are also nut-free.
  • If you’re coeliac, I don’t recommend using oats (to be safe) but if you’re sensitive to gluten, you may tolerate oats OK.
  • You can swap choc chips for blueberries, fresh or frozen for a healthier option.
  • You can easily adjust how much maple syrup you add to adjust the sweetness.
  • You could also swap the maple syrup for honey if you prefer.
  • The more overripe your bananas are, the sweeter the muffin will be.
  • Don’t have a muffin tray? Just pour the mixture into a small baking tray (or loaf tin) and bake. When you stick a knife in and it comes out clean, it’s ready. Cut into slices.
