These Double Chocolate Banana Muffins are BURSTING with chocolate flavour! They are moist, soft and light, and taste absolutely delectable! They’re also vegan, gluten free and healthier than your typical muffins!
Fun fact: These double chocolate banana muffins (what a mouthful) will surprise you. It’ll be a pretty awesome surprise too – filled with “wait, these are vegan?” and “wait, these are gluten too?!“. The answers are still yes and yes. These babies took quite a few recipe testing, but the results are definitely worth it. Soft, moist, light and fluffy are only a few words to describe these muffins. 10 minutes of prep time is all it takes to get these into the oven, and onto your plate.
By the way, I hope you had a great Valentine’s Day! I’m very aware that these would have been perfect, but I’ve been nursing a flu. The Mr. had it first (poor thing), passed it on to me the second he picked me up from the airport, and I’ve been a mini prisoner ever since. It’s been a while since I’ve been sick, and it still isn’t any fun. The Mr. ordered in fun, dessert, and a movie and we enjoyed Valentine’s from the comfort of our living room.
Pretty perfect celebration for me, minus the flu of course. Also, I had these chocolate banana muffins to celebrate it too.
After just a bit of recipe testing, lots of ripe bananas, and taking bits and pieces from my gluten free banana bread, these babies were born. I’ve completely transformed that recipe, which was already healthy, to make these even better. Lots of delicious chocolate flavour, and surprisingly, the banana flavour is pretty subtle. According to the Mr. it went from banana 🤓🤓🍌🍌🍌🍌🍌 to oh, banana!😏🍌🍫🍫 Full disclosure, these questionable emoji choices are all my own, yes, I’m a total weirdo.
Anyway, this is perfect if you aren’t too big on banana flavour because you really have to search for it, and even better if you’re a choco-holic like I am. One bite of these chocolate banana muffins, and you’ll definitely be hooked. Perfect way to use up all those super ripe bananas in your home that’ll guarantee everyone will eat them.
