Easter Special: Choc Banana Bunny Muffins

 

Hello lovers! Easter is coming up and everywhere you look there’s Easter bunnies and Easter eggs and of course… CHOCOLATE!! If you’re vegan or trying to stay on the health-train then this time of year can be torture. BUT, I am here to make sure no one misses out on treating themselves over the long weekend. This recipe is the perfect treat all year round but add some “ears” and you’ve got yourself little bunny muffins. Every time I make these muffins for friends they’re all gone within minutes and I also cooked these for an event I catered. Vegan or non-vegan, these are a winner!
