  • Preheat your oven to 350F and line a 12-hole muffin tin.
  • Combine all ingredients (except chocolate chips, if using) in a large bowl. Mix until all ingredients are incorporated.
  • Add chocolate chips (if using) and stir to mix them in.
  • Using a spoon or small measuring cup, portion out the batter between the 12 lined muffin tin holes.  Top with more chocolate chips, if desired.
  • Bake for 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle of the muffin comes out clean.
  • Let cool for 20 minutes and enjoy.
  • Let cool completely before storing in an air-tight container in your fridge or freezer.


*Chocolate chips often contain dairy, so if dairy-free is important to you, be sure to pick a dairy-free brand.
