Banana and chocolate muffin

Chocolate is known as a “craving” food!
It can be explained by its nutrition facts : chocolate contains tryptophan, an amino acid that, coupled with carbs (here banana sugar), creates serotonin (called the “hormone of pleasure “). To benefit from its advantages, prefer those with 80% cocoa minimum and without other fats than cocoa butter. To enjoy with moderation!

– 2.5 oz ground almonds
– 1 big egg
– 1 sachet of vanilla sugar
– 1 big banana
