Ingredients
  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 1 cup pitted dates
  • ½ cup almond butter
  • ½ cup coconut flour
  • ¼ cup coconut oil, melted
  • ¼ cup palm shortening
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup dark chocolate chips
  • ½ cup chopped walnuts
Directions
  1. 1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line 12 muffin cups with paper liners.
  2. 2. Puree bananas and dates in a food processor until smooth. Add almond butter, coconut flour, coconut oil, palm shortening, cocoa powder, baking soda, vanilla extract, and salt. Pulse to make a thick batter, scraping sides to fully incorporate ingredients.
