Print Recipe


  • 3 Tbsp hot water
  • 1 Tbsp ground flax seed
  • 4 overripe mashed bananas about 1½ cups
  • cup avocado oil
  • cup pure maple syrup dark
  • 2 Tbsp spiced rum
  • tsp cinnamon extract
  • tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp nutmeg
  • tsp cloves
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ¼ tsp Celtic sea salt
  • cups whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips


  • In a small bowl, whisk the flaxseed and hot water to make an "egg". Set aside for 5-10 minutes. Preheat the oven to 425° and line a muffin tin with 12 parchment liners.
  • In a large bowl, whisk the mashed banana and avocado oil. Then add the flax egg, maple syrup, cinnamon extract, and rum. Whisk to combine.
  • Add the cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves, followed by the baking soda and sea salt.
  • Finally, add the flour and gently mix with a wooden spoon or spatula until just combined. (Be sure not to over mix!) Fold in the chocolate chips.
  • Evenly distribute the batter between the 12 muffin cups. They should be about ⅔ full.
  • Bake for about 15-18 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Enjoy!


Use dark maple syrup as opposed to amber to achieve a deeper flavor.
If you don't have avocado oil, melted coconut oil or butter work well too.
