It was love at first sight with these muffins. A few weeks back I was scrolling through Instagram and came across a picture for Two Peas and Their Pod’s Vegan Chocolate Banana Muffins. I immediately took a screen shot to remind myself to make them as I knew I needed this chocolate-goodness in my life. Little did I know just how perfectly soft and gooey a muffin could actually be. Usually when I make a recipe I find things I want to tweak, but these muffins? These are perfection. Seriously, just look at how each bite is filled with warm, melted chocolate bliss.
While the original recipe is vegan, mine were not as I used melted butter in place of coconut oil and didn’t have vegan chocolate chips on hand. Other than those two small changes, I followed the original recipe exactly and would not change a thing. For that reason, I didn’t feel it was right to post the recipe on my blog. Instead please check out the recipe over at Two Peas and Their Pod by clicking here.
While I feel something this delicious should be enjoyed without worrying over the nutritional content, I understand that some people do need to know how many carbs or calories they are eating. So, here are the nutrition stats per muffin, first using butter and non-vegan bittersweet chocolate chips, and then after using coconut oil and vegan chips. Here’s a toast to a sweet weekend!
