What You Need To Make Small Batch Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

3 ripe medium spotted bananas
your favorite milk chocolate bar

What’s The Key To Making These Gluten Free Banana Muffins Fluffy?
The key element in having a fluffy muffin is using cane sugar and the correct all purpose flour.
Gluten Free all-purpose flour differs by brand. I recommend either using the Bob’s Red Mill or King Arthur Gluten Free Flour for the best results. Also, don’t swap or lower the amount of cane sugar in these.
Some may think lowering the amount of sugar or omitting it altogether will make for a healthier muffin and yield the same texture, but that isn’t the case. Sugar is one of the key ingredients that can’t be cut out of recipes. It combines with the butter and egg to help the flour rise and by cutting it out or not using the 3 Tablespoons called for, it will likely yield a flatter muffin,
Why Should I Ditch The Chips?
Chocolate chips will 9/10 have more sugar, less cocoa butter, and contain stabilizers.
So, in a pinch yes chocolate chips will get the job done, but if you want a rich chocolate in these bars I recommend a nice chocolate bar because you only deserve the best.
Also, when chopping up the chocolate, you can decide how big or small you want the chunks to be.
Can I add more than 1 scoop of collagen?
You can, but I would expect the texture to change. It would likely create a flatter muffins and may introduce a gummi-like texture.
I call for one optional scoop of collagen to add just a bit more protein, but any more than that would likely change the muffin too much.
