Chai Spiced Banana Muffins

Every kitchen needs a recipe like this. A one-bowl delicious creation that doesn’t even need a whisk (I used a fork). What I love even more about this recipe is the chai spice combined with the hazelnut meal and sweet banana. The flavour combination is magical and it is ready in only 30 minutes.

Chai Spiced Banana Muffins


12-hole muffin or mini bundt tray

300g mashed banana (approx. 3 large bananas)

80g hazelnut meal (or almond meal)

30 ml extra virgin olive oil

3 eggs

3 tbsp coconut flour (or gluten-free plain flour)

1 tbsp psyllium husk

1 tsp apple cider vinegar

½ tsp baking powder

pinch of sea salt

½ cup dark chocolate drops (dairy free optional)

Chai Spice:

½ tsp ground cinnamon

¼ tsp ground nutmeg

¼ tsp ground clove

¼ tsp ground cardamom

¼ tsp ground ginger


  1. Preheat oven to 170°C fan forced / 190°C conventional oven / 375°F

  2. In a bowl combine all ingredients.

  3. Spray with extra virgin olive oil the muffin tin and distribute evenly between the 12 muffin holes.

  4. Bake for 25 minutes.

  5. Allow cooling on a wire rack for 10 minutes before serving.

Note: These are also delicious the next day. You can store them in an air-tight container in the fridge as they are delicious cold too!
