The Best Banana Choc Chip Muffins You Have Ever Tasted

Option 3

This recipe is a staple, go-to recipe in our house.  We use it probably far too often, but a batch of these delicious muffins never lasts long.  Especially good when nice and warm, fresh out of the oven, but also great the next day, if they last that long!  I don’t think you could call them healthy exactly, but you might notice that there is no sugar added to this recipe (the bananas, honey and chocolate chips take care of the sweetness), and the bulk of the flour is wholemeal, so that’s got to be a good thing, right?

We use coconut milk because I tried it that way once with some left over coconut milk I had and they were fluffier and more delicious than ever, so now we always use coconut milk, but, as it says in the recipe, you can use any milk you choose.

You also won’t believe how quick and easy these are to make – just a few simple steps:
