Method

  • Step 1

    Preheat the oven to 180C and line a 6-hole muffin tin with paper cases.

    Place the oats, sweetener, cocoa powder, baking powder and cinnamon into your Ninja Kitchen food processor and whizz up well.

    Add in the banana, milk, egg and vanilla and blend again until quite thick and smooth. Stir in the blueberries and chocolate chips then spoon between the paper cases to fill.

  • Step 4

    Bake for 15-20 minutes until risen and firm then leave to cool.

  • Step 5

    Meanwhile beat together the soft cheese/Quark, cacao powder, sweetener and coconut flour then chill in the fridge until needed.

    Spoon some over each muffin then sprinkle over dried blueberries and cacao nibs (and a drizzle of melted dark chocolate if you fancy it!) and enjoy!
