Vanilla chocolate carob muffins – paleo and vegan

vanilla chocolate carob muffins

Looking for a vegan and paleo breakfast or dessert? Loving chocolate, banana and almonds? Then you definitely have to give these muffins a go!

I love the combination of almond flour which tastes like marzipan and bitter raw chocolate and carob which reminds me of caramel. Adding an overripe banana not only safes you an egg and makes these muffins vegan, it also adds enough sweetness to get some delicious breakfast muffins with amazing macros. In my opinion, you don’t need extra sweetness but if you want to get an indulgent dessert, feel free to add a sweetener of choice and perhaps a chocolate glaze (I love using coconut oil and raw chocolate or melting dark chocolate).

Trying to eat more plant-based again?

It is pretty hard to find recipes which are paleo and vegan at the same time. After some playing around, I managed to create those and I ate all of them in one sitting with some strawberries.

At the moment, I’m looking for a way to decrease my meat intake a bit again. This is really difficult if you can’t have dairy, legumes, tofu, soy products and grains.

I’m pretty happy on the paleo diet but eating this amount fish and meat sometimes leaves me thinking that somehow I have to manage to reduce my intake.

Nevertheless, health is my first priority and I’m listening to my body more than ever.

If you have any food paleo and vegan recipes, comment below! I’d love to get some tips.
