Banana-Mango-Chocolate Muffins, Date-Free and Sugar-Free

I love to have a muffin every day, but I have always used dates as the main sweetener. However, my blood sugar is quite a moody character and dates are known to have very high glycemic load – an indicator of how much a serving of food is likely to increase your blood-sugar levels.

So, I was really forced to create a muffin recipe that is date-free and sugar-free. I experimented with several combinations and find that bananas with mango do a fine job. Persimmons would be perfect, but unfortunately the season is over for now.

Besides being plant-based, date-free and sugar-free, these muffins also use no oil and can be made without gluten, if you buy gluten-free oats or oat flour.

Tips for my chocolaty banana-mango muffins:

  • Make leaner muffins by ditching the cacao paste or chocolate pieces and/or peanut butter.
  • You can use any nut butter that you have in hand.
