Can I Use Food Processor Instead of Blender?

Unfortunately “no” because blending bananas almost into a smoothie (an egg one) ensures no banana lumps and that pillowy soft texture. I tried to make muffins with mashed banana and a food processor and it is not the same experience.

What Can I Use Instead of Chocolate Chips?

Fresh or frozen blueberries or cacao nibs.

Can I Turn Muffins Into Almond Flour Banana Bread?

The answer is “no” because almond banana bread will come out soggy in the middle. Make small almond flour banana breads in a shape of muffins.
