Banana cake will always be a classic, but these gorgeous little muffins are giving the ol’ cake a run it’s money! They’re super easy to make so you can easily whip up a batch in the morning before you get on with the rest of your day. The addition of chocolate chips brings that cheeky choc fix most of us are looking for come afternoon and it’s a great way a little bit of naughty with a little nice. The bananas are full of potassium and the whole recipe has a surprisingly low amount of sugar for a dessert (only 1/2 cup). Give them a go!
