Tips on Making Vegan Banana Chocolate Muffins:
- Do not overmix the batter. Just make sure everything is well incorporated and no lumps are formed from the wet ingredients. Overmixing the batter will make the muffin hard.
- You can make this into a banana bread instead of muffins. Just use a nonstick loaf pan and bake it!
- If you don’t have regular brown sugar, you can use coconut sugar instead. It has a light sweetness and it’s so natural and organic.
