These moist and not-too-sweet muffins taste so good, they should be bad for you. Soft and fluffy with very ripe bananas, flecked with ground coffee beans and flavoured with toffee notes from natural molasses sugar, these muffins make you want to get out of bed in the morning! Made with a list of whole food ingredients, these muffins are rich in fibre, complex carbohydrates, protein and minerals, and they don’t come any better… except maybe topped with a few chocolate chips!

This recipe uses the Chef Sense XL 6.7L – KVL6100P.
