The BEST sugar free, dairy free, wheat free Choc Banana muffins - is that possible?

I've been experimenting a little of late with different sugar free, dairy free, wheat free baked goods - here is a great recipe that I adapted a little from one on the Fast Paleo website.

Here you go:

Yummy Choc Banana Muffins

2 RIPE Bananas
5 eggs
3/4 cup refined coconut oil (melted)
2 tsp honey
1 cup almond meal
1/2 cup Cacao Power (brand) Powder (can get it in most health food stores)
1 tsp cinnamon
2 bars of Mini Blues Sugar Free (Dairy free, Gluten free) Dark Chocolate - crushed
1 tsp baking powder

Preheat to 180
Whisk eggs and coconut oil in a bowl
Mash bananas and add honey - mix well
Combine almond meal, cinnamon and baking powder
Combine banana mixture and egg mixture
Pour wet mixture into dry mixture and mix
Add crumbled chocolate bars and mix

This mixture looks a little too wet but trust me it will come out great so resist the temptation to add more almond meal.  I recon you could also leave out the honey too as it's pretty sweet without it especially if you have super ripe bananas.

Cook for 10mins then check - I then cooked for another 2-3mins then checked with a skewer - again they look a little 'wet' when they come out of the oven but if the skewer comes out clean trust that they will be just right, moist and yummy when they cool.

Let them cool then put half straight into the freezer before you eat them all!
