Vegan & Gluten Free Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

Vegan & Gluten Free Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

Vegan | Gluten Free | Makes 12 Muffins | 40 Minutes Total

Brown bananas are the perfect excuse to bake, am I right? These muffins are super banana-y, chocolatey and moist and you’ll be enjoying one in less than 45 minutes! My recommendation is to look at these muffins as a treat. Bake them and share them with family and friends!
