  • 1 ripe banana - peeled
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup plant-based milk (I used unsweetened rice coconut milk)
  • 1/4 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil - melted
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/3 cup chocolate chunks (save a few to add on top right before baking)
  • 1/4 cup walnuts - chopped (save a few to add on top right before baking)
  • 3 tablespoons peanut butter - chilled


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F/180°C.
  • In a large bowl, mash the banana. Add the maple syrup, plant-based milk, apple cider vinegar and coconut oil. Whisk to combine.
  • Into the bowl, add the flour, baking powder, and baking soda. Stir to combine. It should be a thick batter. 
  • Add in about 3/4 of the chocolate chunks, walnuts, and peanut butter. Stir to combine. 
  • Scoop the batter into a muffin pan lined with muffin papers or silicone forms. The batter should be enough for 6 muffins. Divide the rest of the chocolate, walnuts and peanut butter onto the muffins. 
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes until golden on top. You can use a toothpick or small wooden stick to check if the muffins are baked all the way through. Let them cool off a bit before digging in!
