These (gluten & dairy-free) banana bread muffins -- that are loaded with healthy fats and plant protein from Manitoba hemp hearts -- are one of my favorite way to fuel a busy morning.
  • 3 very ripe bananas
  • 2 eggs
  • ¼ cup coconut oil, melted & cooled
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 1 Tbsp. pure vanilla extract
  • 2 cups almond meal
  • 1½ tsp. baking powder
  • ½ cup Manitoba hemp hearts
  • ½ cup dairy-free chocolate chips
  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. In a large bowl, mash the peeled bananas with a fork until smooth (small lumps are okay); whisk in the eggs, coconut oil, honey and vanilla extract.
  3. Add the almond meal and baking powder to the wet ingredients. Stir to combine.
  4. Fold in the hemp hearts and chocolate chips.
  5. Line a muffin tin with parchment paper liners (or spray with coconut oil).
  6. Distribute the batter among the 12 muffin cups.
  7. Sprinkle the top of each muffin with hemp hearts.
  8. Bake for approximately 18 minutes until golden brown.
  9. Store in an airtight container at room temperature for a couple of days (or store in the freezer).
These muffins freeze well.
