Gluten-Free Banana Chocolate Chip Muffin Recipe

I’m a big fan of baked goods. I am also a big fan of chocolate. These gluten-free banana chocolate chip muffins are a perfect combination of them both.

As part of my self-care journey and wanting to become healthier, I’ve been trying to make small alterations in my diet. This has become increasingly important as I strive to rid my body of Reactive Arthritis (read more about that here).

When searching for a baked good I could take along to work, I stumbled upon this Chelsea Sugar recipe for these banana and chocolate chip muffins and decided to mix it up a little. In the recipe below, you’ll see the ingredients I chose to use, making it slightly healthier for me. I am trying to be conscious of the food that I put into my body – especially in meals or baked goods that I make from scratch.

Gluten-Free Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins


1 3/4 cups (220g) Edmonds gluten-free flour
1/2 cup (110g) Chelsea low GI cane sugar
1 tablespoon Edmonds baking powder
1/2 teaspoon Mrs Rogers Himalayan pink salt
1/2 cup Whittakers fair trade 72% dark chocolate, cut into chips
1 Bioland organic egg
1/4 cup (65ml) Lupi Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1/4 cup (65ml) Anchor lactose-free milk 
1 cup mashed fair trade bananas (purchased from Pak’nSave)


  1. Preheat your oven to 180 degrees.
  2. Place muffin cases into the muffin tin, or grease as necessary.
  3. Measure flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and chocolate chips into a large bowl and mix thoroughly.
  4. Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients bowl.
  5. Beat the egg in a small bowl, until frothy. Mix the oil, milk and bananas in the same bowl.
  6. Pour the wet mixture into the well of the dry mixture.
  7. Stir the dry and wet mixture together, only to moisten. Be aware that the batter will be lumpy.
  8. Fill muffin cups 3/4 full.
  9. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes.
  10. Let cool and serve (you may wish to sprinkle some icing sugar on top before serving).

I hope you enjoy your muffins – let me know how they turn out!
