Who knew a healthier vegan muffin could taste so moist and luscious! Eggs are substituted with mashed bananas in this recipe, creating a lovely texture and rich flavour. It’s not only that bananas, chocolate and maca make an excellent flavour combination, together they are also a superfood powerhouse! Bananas are a rich source of potassium and soluble fibre, which help slow down the conversion of carbohydrates into simple sugars. Add the mood boosting properties of maca and chocolate, and what you get is a tasty treat that will keep you full and bouncing with energy!
