Surprise surprise, I’m hitting you with yet another baked good that has chocolate in it - ok enough judgement just let me be me please. If you know me you know that anything chocolate is my first love, and banana bread is a close second in my books so don’t even get me started on chocolate chip banana bread *drools* .

These muffins are the perfect (yes I used that word!) version of chocolate chip banana bread but in muffin form. They’re gluten free, paleo, high in fiber, low in sugar aaaand they have chocolate in them so like you can’t really go wrong.
