Grain-free chocolate chip and banana muffins

I've been wanting to bake some muffins for a while now, so when the fitnessista's grain-free chocolate chip muffins recipe popped up last week, I bookmarked it right away and looked forward to making them on my day off on Friday.

Since I had a ripe banana, I tweaked the recipe a bit by adding a mashed banana, which in turn added more time for them in the oven. That was ok though because the end result was delicious and healthy!

It was a delicious treat with a cup of coffee!

They may not look pretty, but they sure are tasty!
