No Sugar Chocolate Banana Muffins Recipe


No Sugar Chocolate Banana Muffins Recipe!

This No Sugar Chocolate Banana Muffin is a staple at our house. It is pretty healthy for you since it uses lots of bananas instead of sugar and you can add in nuts, coconut and even hemp hearts. It’s a very easy recipe to make and the muffins turn out really moist.

My 3 year old daughter makes this with me most of the time (when she feels like it) and her favourite part of the whole process is adding the chocolate chips (of course, right?).

This recipe is also a sensory experience since kids can use their hands to mash the bananas or in my daughter’s case, use her hands to mix the batter together. When you’re baking with young children, I find it best to measure out all your ingredients first, then call your child to help.

It’s really hard to get your ingredients out of the cabinet and measure it while telling your child to wait for the next step. Also, kids will make a mess regardless so don’t stress about it and clean it all up when the muffins are in the oven.

  1. This would be a great recipe for me – no sugar but bananas – so less calories but as my husband hates yes actually hates bananas I would have to eat the lot – not sure if that is a good thing or not

  2. Yum! It looks delicious! These would be perfect for my in-laws who have diabetes – they are always looking for no-sugar added snacks.

  3. Just a Quick note to say that dark chocolate chips are made of semi-sweet chocolate which is sweetened with sugar. So these muffins are not entirely "no sugar."

    1. Thanks Anne, thanks for pointing it out. I think Amy (the author) may have meant no-sugar added but, I still think it\’s pretty great! Thanks for letting us know, perhaps carob chips would be a better alternative.

  4. These look so good!! I have started omitting sugar in many baking recipes, and don't miss the sweetness at all.

  5. These sound and look delicious! I've got some bananas, maybe I'll make some right now. Thanks for the recipe.

  6. Hello, tried your recipe, i needede to add milk because the batter wouldnt mix otherwise! Maybe that s the reason the muffins ended up compact and chewy? I ll try again. But definitely dont miss the added sugar, so that's great.
