Recipe: Simple and tasty 4 ingredients cacao muffins

I have done this recipe for couple of times and I have always enjoyed it, even though it is very easy and simple to put together. I love everything chocolate so cacao in this recipe is my favorite taste. All flavors from the ingredients come nicely together and they taste great. This time, I have enriched the recipe with couple of additional ingredients. You can completely leave them out as this is very taste just as is, with 4 ingredients total.

So, here it is:

4 ingredients cacao muffins

  • 4 tbsp cacao powder
  • 3/4 cup peanut butter
  • 2 large bananas 
  • 5 tbsp maple syrup
  • 3 tbsp almond meal or almond flour
  • 1 tbsp maca powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds

In your food processor or even by hand with the fork, start mixing your bananas. If you are using the food processor do not over process, the mixture should not be runny. 

Add peanut butter, then cacao powder and maple syrup.

Mix to incorporate the ingredients well.

Finally add the extras, if you are using them.

When mixed, the mixture should still be slightly thick (not runny).

Pour mixture into muffin trays. You can fill them up as they will not rise. 

Bake at 170-180ºC for about 20-30 minutes, depending on your oven. It can be even a bit longer.

After being baked, muffins should be nice and goey and not dry.

Makes about 8 medium muffins.

This recipe will have success with anyone, adults and kids as well.
