Chunky Monkey Muffins

I owe the finding of this recipe to my friend Susan. The recipe came from Tropical Tradition's free recipe site. It is SO yummy and absolutely does not have the texture of a gluten free muffin at all. I did make a few tweaks, and mine haven't looked at all like the picture on the site, which is kind of funny. One side affect of these muffins is you may randomly go around saying "chunky monkey, chunky monkey" just for fun. Don't ask how I know ;)

Chunky Monkey Muffins

1/2 c coconut flour
dash salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
dash cinnamon
6 eggs
1/3 c honey
1/3 c coconut oil, melted (I usually place in a small glass dish and place in the oven so it can melt while the oven preheats)
1 T vanilla
3/4 c mashed banana or applesauce (or a combo of both...oooh, this might be yummy with pumpkin!)
1/2 c walnuts, broken in small pieces
1/3 c unsweetened coconut flakes
1/3 c chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 F. In a small bowl, mix together flour, salt, cinnamon and baking soda. In a large bowl, mix together banana, eggs, honey, oil, and vanilla. Mix the dry ingredients with the wet till thoroughly mixed. Fold in walnuts, coconut and chocolate.Scoop batter into muffin tins to 3/4 full and bake for 20 minutes. Enjoy!
