Servings 6 jumbo muffins


  • jumbo muffin tin


  • oil spray for greasing tins
  • 1 1/2 cups blanched almond flour
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 1/2 cup dark cocoa powder I use Hershey's Special Dark
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 3 large eggs room temperature
  • 3/4 cup granulated monkfruit sweetener sub coconut sugar
  • 1 teaspoon instant espresso powder optional but recommended
  • 3/4 cup well-mashed ripe banana approximately 1 1/2 bananas
  • 1/3 cup avocado oil sub coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips plus more for topping


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and grease a 6-cup jumbo muffin tin well.
  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together almond flour, coconut flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
  • In a separate mixing bowl, whisk together eggs (check for shells!), monkfruit, espresso powder, mashed banana, avocado oil and vanilla.
  • Add wet ingredients to dry and stir until creamy and combined. Fold in ½ cup chocolate chips.
  • Evenly scoop batter into muffin tins, approximately ½ cup per muffin. Give a gentle shake to make sure batter is evenly distributed, then add a few chocolate chips on top of each.
  • Bake for 25 - 28 minutes, until a toothpick comes out mostly clean but has a bit of batter.
  • Cool in the tin for 10 minutes, then run a butter knife around the edges to loosen. Gently lift onto a cooling rack and cool another 15-20 minutes before enjoying.
  • Once completely cooled, leftovers will keep tightly sealed at room temperature up to three days or frozen 4 months.
