Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins: Mama’s Dairy-Free Favorite


These banana chocolate chip muffins are another favorite shared with us by our Associate Editor, Sarah.  The recipe originally appeared on her blog No Whey, Mama, but she wanted Go Dairy Free viewers to enjoy it, too! The simple recipe uses 8 everyday ingredients, and is part wheat for a sneaky bit of wholesomeness. It’s also oil-free, but you can add a couple tablespoons of oil if you prefer a more tender texture.
