If you find that you have overripe bananas on hand and don’t know what to do with them, then you really need to make these easy and mouth watering gluten-free Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins.
It’s a moist, dense banana muffin with added chopped pecans and loads of bittersweet chocolate chips. They’re a great breakfast and snack choice because they’re small and portable and are just so darn scrumptious!
I use bittersweet chocolate chips a lot of times in my baking because they’re not too sweet. If you’re like me, then stick with the bittersweet chocolate chips. The muffin will still be sweet enough.
However, if you have semi-sweet chocolate chips on hand, then you can use those also and it will still taste amazing!

Can I Make These Ahead of Time and Freeze Them?
Yes, you can. Make and bake these as normal and once they’re cooled down stick them in a gallon sized freezer bag and freeze for up to two months. Make sure to get all of the air out of the bag for best results.
