Banana and chocolate chip would have to be one of my all-time favourite combinations! These combine the two in a quick and easy to make muffin. They are egg free and with a couple of easy substitutions, they are also easy to make gluten and dairy free. I actually make these with coconut milk instead of regular milk as I prefer the taste! These muffins are a great snack for the whole family if you're out and about or even for school lunch boxes as they freeze and defrost well.

Use a milk alternative such as coconut milk and nutelex instead of butter and ensure you use dairy free chocolate chips to make these dairy free. Change out regular flour for gluten free flour to make these gluten free.
