Chocolate Banana Muffins

A quick and easy freezer-friendly muffin recipe you can whip up for the kid’s lunch boxes, after-school snack or weekend sporting event.

Who doesn’t love chocolate – and my family is no exception! We all love it in my household, that’s why this Chocolate Banana Muffin recipe is so well received by all my family members! I often make these and pop them in the freezer for an easy-to-grab school (or work – lol!) snack that helps to make school mornings simpler and a little less chaotic. These Chocolate Banana Muffins are also a great way to use up any overripe bananas!

I made these for the kid’s weekend sports, took what we needed and froze the rest for lunch boxes to grab through the week. I grabbed one out of the freezer for myself, left it on the bench for a little while and it thawed rather quickly… it tasted as fresh as the day I made them… so good!

I have shared a recipe previously for Chocolate Banana Muffins, but on this occasion I couldn’t use the recipe as I didn’t have any butter.  I loved this version as it was moist and so banana-ry!!
