My Gluten Free, Dairy Free Chocolate Banana Muffin Recipe

Hi and welcome back.

I hope you are all doing well and looking forward to Easter. It seems such a strange time to be in lock down, and with the weather set to be warm, I hope everyone stays in and safe. Easter as a child for me meant Easter Eggs, plenty of chocolate and endless egg hunts with my brother. Now I am older, I still love the chocolate temptation and who can resist an egg hunt?

It feels like banana loafs are all over Instagram, and if you are looking for a basic recipe, you can find mine here. It is gluten free and very easy to adapt to dairy free too. As I am still on self-isolation I find myself getting more creative in the kitchen. I have such a sweet tooth and didn’t want to miss out on the Easter baking. I decided to add cocoa powder to a banana muffin recipe and it worked amazingly so I sharing the recipe today. These muffins have been decorated using the same cocoa powder and dairy free butter for butter icing. I have sprinkled mine with gluten free mini-eggs and the utterly decadent gluten free kit kat bunny.

Sadly this option is not dairy free.

Decorate with what you love and adjust the recipe as needed. I hope you enjoy. C. -x-
