Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

The first lockdown is synonymous with banana bread so for lockdown 3.0 I’m bringing you… vegan banana muffins!

One of these with a cuppa when they’re fresh out of the oven is something special, I’m telling you! Warm and fluffy in the middle with melted chocolate chips: it’s a dreamy combination.

Chocolate chip muffins are such a crowd pleaser and never last longer than 24 hours in my house! Whip up a batch and enjoy them as a breakfast snack or a sweet treat with a cuppa.
