    Banana & Chocolate Muffins

    Are you one of those people who leave bananas on the kitchen counter for days? And when they get almost black you are wondering why didn’t you make something out of them? Me too…. I like bananas, but usually I have other fruits at home that I like more, especially during summer. 🙂 Therefore, recently, I’m looking to find ways to use ripe bananas, apart from putting them  in the freezer for a refreshing smoothie. After these very delicious pancakes, here comes these healthy vegan banana muffins to give the solution!

    These muffins are perfect for morning coffee, a healthy take-away snack to work or school and, most importantly, they can be stored in the freezer and when they thaw, they are asa good as new! When the weather is hot, cakes and muffins containing fruits do not keep more than two days. In the refrigerator they can be kept 1-2 days more, but in the freezer much longer. And kids love them!

    If you do not have muffins pan, put the mixture into an oblong cake tin. Just keep in mind that it will take a little more baking. Moreover, if you do not have a mixer you can make the muffins by mixing the ingredients by hand. The mixer is not necessary, it just makes things easier.

    As for the ingredients, if emmer whole wheat flour is difficult for you to find, you may use plain wholemeal flour. I used coconut oil for these muffins, since it has a neutral taste, but you may use extra virgin olive oil, as well.
