Vegan banana chocolate chip muffins


When I entered a new decade in my life, I vowed that I would attempt to only eat home made goodies, anything from bread, to muffins right down to biscuits.

This feat is a bit tricky when it comes to my household, my mum is a vegetarian and if my dad hears I am baking something that is remotely vegan he refuses to eat it, he is under the impression that vegan food is tasteless, that was until I came across a delicious banana chocolate chip muffin recipe that I just had to try out.

His verdict he was gobsmacked and did not want to believe that this muffin was eggless let alone vegan friendly.

And thanks to my new Kitchen Aid mixer, these muffins took less than 5 minutes of prep time.
