Chocolate Coffee Banana Muffins ~vegan~ Coffee + Chocolate + Banana Bread = A Match Made In Heaven :)

Coffee + chocolate + banana bread = a match made in heaven

Seriously, talk about taking banana bread up a notch!!!

On a recent 6am trip to the grocery store (yes, 6 am…toddler issues, don’t ask!) I walked past the “discount” bin and found 12 perfectly ripe bananas for only $0.62!   I guess the early bird gets the worm!  This super saver buy got my mind going.

Here was my train of thought:

It’s 6 am, I’m tired and need coffee, cheap bananas, banana bread, chocolate (I always think of chocolate!)Bingo!…chocolate coffee banana bread!

Who needs eggs and butter when you can blend bananas and coconut oil?  This combo makes the fluffiest and “buttery” muffins around!

They are super easy to make too…

Blend the bananas, coconut oil and sugar, sift the dry ingredients, mix together and bake!

    Came by from Tastespotting. How cute these are! I love the muffin liners. They go great with the color of the muffins. I am not Vegan, but I am so tempted to try these.

    Hi Crissy!

    Can you make these with quinoa flour? Or some other gluten free substitute?
