Vegan Chocolate Banana Muffins

These Vegan Chocolate Banana Bread Muffins are really something else - the combination of chocolate and banana is one I use regularly, although it can take a little bit of skill to master. Not sure if I should call it skill, but rather careful mixing, as the chocolate and banana can make the batter a little heavy and more difficult to bake, don't let this deter you from making it though, I promise it's worth the effort!

Vegan Chocolate Banana Muffins

These muffins are a great gift idea if you're feeling particularly generous, whoever receives a batch of these will be sure to be one happy person! (That's if you're willing to give them away!!).

Vegan Chocolate Banana Muffins
As I mentioned above, mastering the use of chocolate and banana in a recipe can take a little bit of a learning curve, but as long as you make sure your batter is nice and smooth, and you bake it for long enough you should be okay!

I really hope you give this recipe a go, and if you do, please feel free to tag me on Instagram using #susiechef so I can see!

  1. Hello! I made these and they taste great but inverted - rose then fell dramatically. Do you have any top tips to prevent this from happening? I made these as a trial run for a work colleague's last day so I'd love for them to look as good as they taste! :) Thanks x

    1. I am SO SO sorry I haven't seen this comment until now!!! I think something on blogger must have hidden it from me and it's only just come up, so sorry!! Did you get these to work in the end? All I can think is that maybe the baking powder and bicarbonate of soda was slightly wrong, those things can mess up a recipe! Let me know if it worked :D
