Gluten-Free Banana Chocolate Chip Flaxseed Muffins

Gluten-Free Flaxseed Muffins with Banana and Chocolate Chips

I love gluten-free flaxseed muffins, but they’re tough to find near where I live, so I decided to just make my own. I love having chocolate chips in them as it takes care of my sweets craving while still being healthy. My kids both love these too which is a great bonus as they tend to be a bit picky with healthy foods. I’ve been playing around with this recipe a bit, and I think I finally got it just right! I’d love to hear what you think if you decide to make them yourself!

    I made these and they came out delicious! I had to use a flax/chia blend, because that is all the store had at the time. And I chose to make them as mini muffins, easier for the kids to eat on the run. Baked them for 10 mintues and they were perfect. My son is in love with these. He ate a ton and keeps bring more to everyone else. Thanks for the receipe.
