These chocolate glazed banana muffins are pretty amazing. Scrumptious banana muffins, topped with a simple vegan chocolate ganache. Yes, vegan ganache does exist! I use So Delicious coconut milk coffee creamer (the French vanilla is my favorite) with dairy free chocolate chips. It’s out of this world!
This is my new EASY recipe for banana muffins (delightful even without the chocolate ganache). I’m loving the texture. The coconut oil adds great flavor too. The ganache adds just enough, not too much, sweetness. You can make these in either the mini muffin size, as I did, or in regular sized muffins. I give instructions for both. I baked up a batch of these for my women’s bible study and they loved them! I hope you will too!
