The BEST gluten free + dairy free banana chocolate marble muffins! The most perfect combination of chocolate and banana, just the right amount of sweet, and the softest center.
I am absolutely obsessed with these banana muffins! I know you all will be too 🙂
I have always wanted to make a marble muffin or loaf recipe, and I’m so happy I finally made one for the blog! They were honestly WAY easier to make than I expected. I already can’t wait to make these again!
These muffins are made with almond flour- I wanted to keep these as simple as possible and stick to one type of flour for the base. They turned out to have the best soft and moist center- I am so happy with how they turned out.
The marbling process is actually quite simple. Once you make the main batter, you just divide the batter into two bowls. You’ll then add some melted chocolate and cocoa powder to one of those bowls and just mix until a smooth chocolate batter forms.
After both of your batters are ready, You’ll spoon a little of the chocolate batter into the bottom of your cupcake liners. You’ll then spoon the regular batter in for the middle layer, and finish it off with another chocolate layer on top.
Finally, you’ll use a knife (or a skewer) to gently swirl the batter a bit- but not too much! Then just bake, cool, and enjoy! 🙂
I cannot wait to hear if you give these marble banana muffins a try! Let me know in the comments below, and tag me on Instagram so that I can see!
Hey! Do you think these would work the same with regular flour?
Obsessed with this recipe! I realized I didn’t melt enough chocolate so I just threw some chocolate chunks in and it gave it a great texture. Also used cacao and it worked perfectly.
Made this the other day! Left them out on the counter and later my Dad said “Those cupcakes you made were great!” haha. Family favorite! Great recipe and great snack. Thanks Mia!
These were sooooooooooooooooo good! I had one everyday after breakfast haha. I followed the recipe exactly, and they turned out great. So yummy!!
I made these vegan by making flax eggs….but I forgot the flax eggs in the fridge LOL. So I baked these without eggs/flax eggs and they still turned out amazing! I love marble anything so I will definitely make these again!
Absolute delicious I added cashews to some of them and took away the chocolate ships and it was just perfect 10/10 would recommend it’s a great snack
Made these today – so soft and delicious!! Perfect mix!
It was delicious! I didn’t have chocolat chips so I susbtituted it for cocoa wich I mixed with half the coconut oil so that it can dissolve. In total, I used 4 tablespoons of cocoa powder and added 1 tablespoon coconut oil to the recipe. Next time, I would like to cook it in a loaf of round mould, I was wondering if I should cook it for longer…
