Banana Chocolate Chip Einkorn Muffins

As a mom of young children, it seems like they are always hungry! It’s hard keeping up with their growing appetites!I began making muffins each week in order to stay away from giving them processed snacks. If I don’t plan ahead, I tend to grab whatever is available and it’s not usually a healthy choice.  I love making these muffins because I usually have all the ingredients laying around, even when I am low on groceries. Making banana bread or muffins is one of my favorite ways to use over-ripe bananas.

 

This recipe uses einkorn flour which has quickly become one of my favorite grains to bake with! I talk in detail about it in this post. If you or your family have a sensitivity to gluten, I would give einkorn a try. While it does contain gluten, many who struggle with gluten-sensitivity don’t react negatively to this type of flour.  Einkorn is an ancient grain that has never been hybridized or altered in any way, so it is still in its original form.

My children LOVE muffins. Possibly because I put chocolate chips in them. Its all about balance around here! I don’t feel guilty about giving them these homemade muffins because they are naturally sweetened and made with whole ingredients. We eat these for snack, but also for a quick breakfast in the morning if we are in a hurry. Give this recipe a try and they just might become a favorite in your house too!
