5. Chocolate Chips
This is an optional add on. But let’s be honest. Chocolate is never optional in my world.
6. Coconut flour
I added coconut flour from my original flourless banana bread recipe to give them a little fluffy factor. However, if you prefer denser texture, you could emit the coconut flour.

Coconut sugar is optional if you prefer sweeter. I have made these banana muffins with and without it.
