Sugar-free Choc & Nut Banana Muffins

Choc chip muff 2

Hands up who loves chocolate chip muffins? But how can these be healthy? By using a few crafty substitutes to conventional recipes, you can rustle up these sugar-free & almost fat-free muffins within an hour (If you want these completely fat-free, just add an extra banana for more moisture). A case of having your cake & eating it!

These muffins have widespread appeal as they are so tasty, you wouldn’t even know that they are healthy; a great way of encouraging children & the less health-conscious to eat more healthily! The recipe as it stands is suited for vegetarians & coeliacs, but can easily be adapted for vegans too (details below).

They are highly portable, making them great for breakfast-on-the-go, lunchbox snacks, picnics & as pre-work out energy boosts. They also make super healthy (& cute) alternatives at afternoon tea.

So what are the substitutes?  The sweetness is provided by ripe bananas & dried dates & apple-sauce replaces fat ( which also adds moisture). By using a Pulsin’s sugar-free chocolate drops, the sugar-free status is maintained. These chocolate drops are 72% cocoa, vegan, gluten-free & dairy-free too! They taste like dark chocolate but are not as bitter as cacao nibs, making it more palatable for children.


An optional topping for these muffins, (which I love), are Pulsin’s vegetarian whey protein crispies..they look a little like snow in snowglobes! They are reminiscent of crunchy sugar granules sometimes found on the top of cakes, but these are healthy & not sweet. They are gluten-free, sugar-free, low fat & make a terrific protein-boosting crunchy topping, adding a lovely textural dimension to these muffins. Vegans can opt for puffed rice, toasted almonds or sunflower seeds instead.


These mini muffins are now a firm family favourite; they are moist, with a satisfying bite from the sunflower seeds, walnuts & whey protein crispies & packed with banana, fibre, ground flaxseed, with creamy-richness coming from the cocoa in the chocolate drops. These are much tastier & sustaining than conventional sugar-laden muffins.

The muffins can be made gluten-free by using gluten-free flour & whilst I have used eggs, flax or chia eggs also work (use a tablespoon of ground chia seeds or ground flaxseed soaked in 1/4 cup of water for 10 mins per egg).

Tip: The riper the bananas the better! This is a great way of using up those bananas in the fruit bowl that have turned scarily spotty & or even uniform brown.

Preparation time: 20-25 mins

Baking time: 25 mins

Makes 24-26 mini muffins


4-5 large ripe bananas (the riper the better)

20g (1/8 cup) coconut oil, or Pulsin’s cacao butter buttons, melted

65g (1/4 cup) of sugar-free apple sauce

2 eggs (or chia or flax egg substitute)

180g (1.5 cups) wholemeal self-raising flour or gluten-free flour

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/2tsp baking soda

2 tbsp protein powder (I use Pulsin’ soya  or pea derived. If you have run out, you can omit and use 2 tbsp more of flour

1/2 tsp salt

3/4 cup  or 80g ground flaxseed

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

140g (1 cup) of chopped dates (prunes and figs work well too!)

60g (1/2 cup) chopped walnuts (pecans work well too)

35g (1/4 cup) sunflower seeds

60g  (3/8 cup) Pulsin’ sugarfree chocolate drops

Topping: sprinkle liberally with Pulsin’ whey protein crispies (or vegan substitute) & extra sugarfree chocolate drops

Choc chip 14


Preheat the oven to 170ºC. Lightly grease 2 X 12 hole mini-muffin tins with spray coconut oil. (I have silicone non-stick ones).

In one bowl, mash up bananas using a fork. Mix with melted  coconut oil or melted cacao butter buttons, sugar-free apple sauce, & eggs (or chia/ flax substitute).

Choc chip 1 prep

In a separate bowl, mix together wholemeal flour, baking powder, baking soda, protein powder (if using), salt, ground flaxseed & vanilla extract.

Gradually mix the flour mix in with the banana mix.

Fold in chopped dates, chopped nuts, sunflower seeds & sugarfree chocolate drops.

Choc chip 3 prep

Spoon teaspoon portions into the greased mini muffin tins. Sprinkle liberally with whey protein crispies & stud with extra chocolate drops.

Choc chip 4 prep

(See how cute they look already!)

Choc chip 5 prep

Bake in the preheated oven for 25 mins, or until a skewer inserted into the muffin comes out clean. Allow to cool in the silicone tray for about 10 mins before removing & allow to cool on a wire rack.

Choc chip 6 prep

Allow to cool for 10 mins in the tray before removing onto the wire rack (can you wait that long?!)

Nom nom!


You can add cinnamon (1/2 teaspoon) or coffee (by adding 1 tbsp of ground espresso powder), or cacao & maca powder (use 2-3 tbsp cacao powder) or orange zest for interesting variations.

Pecans, almonds, macadamia nuts, brazils, sunflower & pumpkin seeds also work well instead of the walnuts

Curry night! Tonight we cobbled up this Thai red curry using veggies left over in the fridge: mushrooms, french beans, cauliflower, sweet potato, carrot and peppers and a lonely onion, garlic and ginger lying around in the veggie basket. Add to it some Thai curry paste, coconut milk, you have a quick #plantbaseddinner! ⠀ .⠀ What's your supper?⠀ .⠀ Tip: Why not used powdered coconut powder @coconutmerchant ? Just add water, stir and it is ready! Really useful when your recipe only needs half a can of coconut milk! Also, add a tbsp of chia seeds to help the sauce thicken and add extra nutrients at the same time!⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ . . . . . .⠀ @thrivemags @thefeedfeed @veganfoodspot @hbloggerscom @veganshares @thefeedfeed.vegan @vegandaily1 @vegandailyuk @naturesheartuk @pulsinhq @SukrinUK @BionaOrganic⠀ .⠀ . . . . . . #thaicurrynight #thaicurryrecipes #veganinspo #veganvibes #lowcarbrecipes #lowcarbvegan #lowcarbyum #lowcarbpaleo #veganpower #proteinpowderecipe #thaicurrysimple #curryup #currystagram #glutenfreevegan #wholefoodrecipe #allergyfree #eatstagram #healthblogger #feedyoursoul #eathealthyfood #eatbetternotless #leaneating #lovefoodforhealth #lovefoodie #veganfoodspot #veganprotein #colourourplate #healthyveganfood #glutenfreefoodie
Sorry I couldn't post yesterday; I had double spin and friends round for supper. So this isn't a breakfast post, but a post of what we ate last night.... ⠀ .⠀ We had Toad soup! Ok Ok, it isn’t toad soup (that’s just what they called), but don’t you just love the deep green colour? A great soup for Halloween don’t you think?! It's actually a vegan version of cheesy broccoli and spinach soup, using nutritional yeast to give the savoury 'cheesiness.' I've served this with some bruschetta topped with salsa and guacamole with mini cucumbers (the size of my thumb!) and dried goldenberries.⠀ ⠀ Just throw together some garlic, white onion, celery, sweet potatoes or pumpkin, stock, spinach, protein powder, #wheatgrass and nutritional yeast and blend!

Its cookie time! These crumbly chocolate chip, nut and oat cookies are so good with a cup of tea or hot cocao; great for rainy days like today! They are soft, chewy and crumbly and melt-in the mouth chocolate chips. Nom nom! ⠀ .⠀ They are so much healthier than shop-bought cookies, containing only wholefoods including oats, protein powder, hemp seeds, and they can be made sugar-free by using only stevia and gluten-free by using coconut flour too. What do you think? ⠀ .⠀⠀ .⠀ .⠀ Preparation time: 25 mins⠀ Baking time: 10 mins⠀ Ingredients:⠀ 80g instant oats (gluten-free if required)⠀ 70g coconut flour*⠀ 30g protein powder (soya bean, pea)⠀ 30g coconut sugar⠀ 10g stevia (If using only stevia, use 30g)⠀ 20g hemp seeds⠀ ½ tsp. baking soda⠀ Optional: 1 tsp. maca powder⠀ 2 large eggs, beaten or vegan alternative: flaxseed of chia eggs⠀ 65g coconut oil (melted)⠀ 1 tsp. vanilla extract⠀ 40g raw hazelnuts, roughly chopped⠀ 50g dark chocolate chips ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ Method:⠀ ⠀ Preheat the oven to 180°C and line and grease a large baking sheet⠀ In a large bowl, mix together the oats, coconut flour, protein powder, coconut sugar, stevia, hemp seeds, baking soda and maca powder, if using.⠀ Add the eggs or egg substitute, melted coconut oil, vanilla extract, chopped hazelnuts and chocolate chips. Mix to combine and form a dough.⠀ Using a 3cm ice cream scoop or a 1 tbsp. measuring spoon as a mould, compress moundfuls of the cookie dough into the mould and release onto the prepared baking sheet. ⠀ Bake at 180°C for 10mins until golden brown. Remove from the oven and allow to cool.

Is it #foodprepsunday? I always feel better once I've prepped up healthy food for the working week. Is this normal? Hehe. Today I am making these trail mix bars which use puffed puffed quinoa instead of rice to boost up the #plantbased protein content. You can't go wrong with nut butter, nuts, crispies, #chia and a bit of #plantprotein!⠀⠀ .⠀ Makes: 14-18 bars⠀ Preparation time: 25 mins. Refrigerate for 2hrs+⠀ Ingredients:⠀ 150g maple syrup ⠀ 3 tbsp. nut or seed butter ⠀ 2 tbsp. coconut oil⠀ 80g jumbo oats⠀ 40g crispies 100g dried fruit of choice.

To do this, scatter onto a dry baking sheet and pop in an oven at 150ºC for 5 mins.⠀ In a medium sized saucepan, melt together the maple syrup or honey along with the nut or seed butter of choice and coconut oil and stir to form a silky smooth liquid. Set aside.⠀ In a large bowl, mix together the oats, crispies, dried fruit, nuts and/or seeds, goji berries, protein powder, dark chocolate and salt.⠀ Add the coconut oil mixture and stir to combine. Pour into the prepared baking tin, level and press down firmly with a spatula. Refrigerate 2 hours+ to set, slice up into bars.

Aqua-what? Did you see Great British Bakeoff Vegan week? I haven't yet made meringues but I have made #vegan chocolate mousse using #aquafaba (or chick pea juice). Tastes deliciously light and fluffy. You wouldn't know the difference to be honest-you just need to whip the chick pea juice for longer! (It's a work out and pudding in one!). ⠀ .⠀ Top tip: pop the cans of chick peas in the fridge to speed up the whipping time!⠀ .⠀ .⠀ . What's your favourite vegan dessert?⠀ .⠀ .⠀ Recipe here:⠀⠀ Preparation time: 25-30 mins⠀ .⠀ Serves: 6-8⠀ Ingredients: ⠀ Aquafaba from 2 X 400g tins of chickpeas ⠀ 200g of dark chocolate bars (at least 70% cocoa solids)⠀ 1 tsp. vanilla extract⠀ 2-3 tsp. stevia⠀ ¼ tsp. sea salt⠀ Layering options: Granola, raspberries, blueberries and blackberries, cacao-coated goldenberries, cacao nibs, chopped up healthy snack bars⠀ .⠀ Method:⠀ Melt the chocolate in a microwave or using a bain marie. Set aside to cool slightly.⠀ Drain the chickpeas and save the aquafaba. Pour the aquafaba into a large bowl and using electric beaters, whisk for 10-15 mins funtil you get fluffy white cloud-like peaks.⠀ Then fold in the melted chocolate with vanilla, stevia and salt using a metal spoon, trying not to knock out the air.⠀ Then simply spoon into your vessel of choice. If layering, I like to spoon into glasses and alternate between a layer of mousse, berries and granola (so you can admire the view!), finishing with cacao-coated goldenberries, cacao nibs and some berries.⠀ .⠀ . . . . . . . . .⠀ @naturesheartuk @pulsinhq @SukrinUK @BionaOrganic @veganfoodshare @thrivemags @hbloggerscom @vegandaily1 @vegandailyuk @veganshares @vegandaily1 @thefeedfeed.vegan@veganvultures⠀ .⠀ .⠀ . . . . . . . .⠀ .⠀ #foodblogeats #veganfoodspot #veganfoodlovers #cleantreats #healthyveganrecipe #buzzfeedhealth #nourishyourbody #eatpretty #thenewhealthy #foodblogfeed #f52grams #buzzfeedfood #huffposttaste #feedfeed #nomnom #glutenfreetreats #lovefoodhatewaste #vegansofinstagram #greatbritishbakeoff #gbbo #instafoodiegram #buzzfeedfeed #happyandhealthy #freefrom #friendsnotfood #vegandessert #vegandessertporn #foodphotography

Do you have the munchies?! Luckily I have a few of these hazelnut chocolate nut butter fudge squares in the freezer (hehehe). The recipe is so simple (about 15 whole minutes to make) and the end result is AMAZING! (If I say so myself). ⠀⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ Recipe:⠀ 380g dried dates ⠀ 200ml boiling water⠀ 3 tbsp coconut oil⠀ ¼ tsp sea salt ⠀ 3 tbsp protein powder (soya bean, pea)⠀ 1 tbsp maca powder⠀ 10 tbsp peanut, almond or hazelnut butter⠀ 4 tbsp cacao powder ⠀ 75g whole raw hazelnuts, halve some randomly so you get all sorted sizes to munch on.⠀ .⠀ Method:⠀ Line a small baking tin measuring 16cm X 26cm with baking parchment and a little coconut oil.⠀ Place the dates and boiling water in a saucepan on a low heat for about 5 mins. The dates will become a mushy paste. Turn off the heat.⠀ Stir in the coconut oil and salt.⠀ Transfer the paste into a blender. Add the protein powder, maca powder, nut butter of choice, cacao powder and whizz to combine.⠀ Transfer the fudge mixture back into the saucepan (or a mixing bowl if you prefer!). Stir in the hazelnuts. The mixture will be quite stiff.⠀ Transfer into the prepared baking. Using a spatula, squish the mixture down so that the fudge is level⠀ Freeze for 23 hrs before slicing up into squares⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ @naturesheartuk @pulsinhq @pipandnut @Naturya @coconutmerchant⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ ⠀ #peanutbutterfudge #peanutbutterlover #trickortreat #plantbasedrecipes #plantbasedfoodie #halloween #healthyfoodporn #wholefoodplantbaseddiet #veganasofinstagram #foodiesofinstagram #getinmybelly #veganrecipeblog #veganrecipeoftheday #healthnut #healthyme #veganuk #eatwellbeing #foodphotography #veganfoodpornshare #glutenfreetreats #glutenfreerecipe #glutenfreevegan #nomnom #lovefoodfeelgood #f52grams #lovefood #coconutoil #maca #fitfam #proteinpowderrecipes
