Nutty Flaxseed Chocolate Chip Muffins

These muffins have zero added sugar besides the chocolate chips and the naturally occurring sugar in the bananas. Perfect for a snack at work or school, or after a workout!

Nutty Flaxseed Chocolate Chip Muffins



Ingredients:

1 C cashew meal
3/4 C almond meal 
1/4 C flaxseeds, ground
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp cardamom
1/8 tsp himalayan salt
2 medium really ripe bananas
1 egg, beaten
1 tbsp melted coconut oil (or butter)
1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
2 tsp vanilla
2 tbsp almond milk
1/3 C mini chocolate chips

**note: I adapted this recipe from ambitious kitchen.com.
The original recipe called for 1 3/4 C almond meal, however I love cashews so wanted to use them instead! Feel free to substitute with another nut flour.

Directions

Preheat oven to 3 fiddy (sorry- I've been listening to gangsta rap all day, that's 350°)

In a medium bowl, combine dry ingredients and mix together. In a separate bowl, combine wet ingredients and mix together until smooth. 

Add dry ingredients together and mix until just combined. Fold in chocolate chips.

Fill a greased muffin pan with batter about 3/4 full and bake for 25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean! Makes 8 muffins.

Store in airtight container in fridge.
