Gluten-Free Vegan Banana Chocolate Muffins

Gluten-Free Vegan Banana Chocolate Muffins

I have to confess that while I love a sliced banana on my daily oatmeal, I also love peering into the fruit bowl to discover a couple of spotty brown bananas.

I can do without the friendly fruit flies, but that's another topic to tackle later.

I love to find the over ripe bananas because I'm then compelled to make some banana bread.

This is a super fast gluten-free vegan banana chocolate muffins recipe compiled from lots of recipes including our original family favorite from our preschool teacher that we call Georgie Cake in honor of Curious George, our hero.

I've made this fast, easy, gluten-free and vegan too.

These little Georgie Cakes will have your little (and big!) monkeys chattering for more.
