  • 3 very ripe bananas (mashed (about 1 1/2 cups))
  • 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 2 tbsp oil (canola, grapeseed, any neutral tasting oil - not olive oil though)
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 cups gluten-free flour blend (I like Bob's Red Mill 1-to-1 baking flour)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 1 cup dairy-free chocolate chips (I used Guittard dark chocolate chips)


  • In a large bowl, mix together mashed bananas, creamy peanut butter, oil, granulated sugar, gluten-free flour blend, salt, baking soda, baking powder, apple cider vinegar and vanilla extract. Stir to combine.
  • Take one cup of the batter and place in a smaller bowl. Stir in the cocoa powder and water and mix to combine.
  • Spoon peanut butter mixture into muffin tin lined with cupcake liners. Add a rounded tablespoon of the chocolate batter to each muffin well and swirl with a toothpick or a knife. Top with chocolate chips.
  • Bake at 350F for 20-25 minutes, until muffin is lightly browned and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  • Let cool in the pan for 5-10 minutes before serving.
