VEGAN BANANA CHOCOLATE CHIP MUFFINS

It’s been a while since I’ve posted a recipe and I’m breaking the lull with some sweet muffins… It couldn’t be avoided. I was home alone last night with some overly ripe bananas and I was in the mood to do some baking. The recipes that I’ve tried over the past year for vegan banana bread haven’t quite measured up to the non-vegan banana bread that I was used to. So after spending about thirty minutes searching Pinterest, I decided to take some of the ideas that I scanned over and mix it up a bit…

The result was delicious! The texture and flavor is very similar to what I loved about banana bread in the past. Moist, not too dense… and I feel much less guilty devouring a couple muffins knowing that I avoided refined sugar, white flour, vegetable oil, and opted for whole wheat flour, coconut palm sugar, and coconut oil instead.

If you’ve got a hankering for a chocolaty banana treat, give these muffins a try. This recipe would probably do just fine in a loaf pan as well, though I haven’t tried yet myself. I’m guessing it would take 30 mins or more to bake. Just check it with a toothpick around 25 mins to get an idea of where its at.
