These yummy gluten free banana applesauce muffins are simple and oh so fluffy and chocolatey! 



Wet ingredients

  • 3 medium spotty bananas
  • 3 Tbsps cane sugar ( if your bananas aren’t very sweet you may want to add a bit more)
  • 5 Tbsps of melted butter (or butter substitute)
  • 1 large room-temp egg
  • 1 heaping tsp of vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup applesauce

Dry Ingredients 

  • 1 1/2 Cups all purpose gluten free flour ( I used the King Arthur brand)
  • 1 scoop collagen peptides
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 cup chopped chocolate chunks¬†


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 and line 12 muffin tins with muffin liners
  2. Melt the butter in a small bowl in the microwave for about 30 seconds. When melted, add the egg and sugar to a large bowl and beat it for 1-2 minutes.
  3. Add the vanilla extract into the large bowl and mix it until combined and set aside.
  4. Mash the spotty bananas with a fork until chunks are minimal. When done, add them into a large bowl and combine with the other wet ingredients.
  5. Add the dry ingredients (except the chocolate chips) into the large bowl and mix until there is no chunks of flour or baking soda or powder in the batter.
  6. Mix in the chopped chocolate and make it evenly combined in the batter.
  7. Pour the batter into the muffin tins until 3/4 full. Tap the muffin tray against the counter a few times to help the batter even out.
  8. Bake in the oven for 23-25 minutes. The muffins will be ready when you stick a toothpick into the muffins and it comes out with no batter sticking to it.
  9. Store in an airtight container in the fridge for 2 days and then store in the freezer after.
