Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Banana Marshmallow Muffin is one of the most incredible combinations. Just imagine melted chocolate with marshmallows in a muffin…So so good!

In this gluten-free muffin recipe, I combined three things that kids love! Chocolate chips, bananas and marshmallows. The banana flavoured muffins are light, moist and filled with mini chocolate chips. To make these muffins stand out, I added a topping of melted marshmallows.

A muffin that tastes this delicious you can find only in a bakery…or can you? Some of you have asked me to make gluten-free muffins that your kids will love and keep them on the healthier side. So here it is! When you combine chocolate chips with marshmallows and add a banana flavour in the muffin, you know your kids will love them. 

To keep these yummy muffins on the healthier side, I took out sugar and butter. For extra protein and fiber, I added almond flour. For fats, I used heart-healthy olive oil, making the muffins nice and moist. I recommend using good quality mini chocolate chips because they make a big difference in flavour and melt beautifully. Again, the marshmallows should be the mini marshmallows, and they work wonders as a topping.

Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Banana Marshmallow Muffin – Vegan Option.

To make this gluten-free muffin recipe vegan is very easy. Substitute honey for pure maple syrup, use dairy-free milk and don’t forget about the chocolate chips. They should be vegan too. 

I must stress, although I made these gluten-free chocolate chip banana marshmallow muffins for kids, they are also adult-friendly…lol. In our test kitchen, we all loved every last bite.

We all know that most kids are picky eaters. Creating gluten-free recipes for kids is a lot of fun because I test them on kids, and they always give me an honest opinion. One particular recipe that has been a huge hit are the gluten-free apple raisin fritters.
