Vegan Muffins Monthly: Chocolate-Banana (Vegan, GF)

Jenn and I have decided to exploit Happy Herbivore's awesome vegan muffin recipe as much as we can. So we are presenting Vegan Muffins Monthly which will be: Completely Vegan, Gluten-Free, Soy-Free, Xanthan Gum-Free and Oil-Free. Not possible you say? Well you are going to have to get used to this crazy concept...monthly... ENJOY! :)

Muffins in the sun :)
1 1/2 cups Gluten-Free flour blend (see substitutes)
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup cocoa
3/4 cup mashed bananas
1/4 cup applesauce
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/2 cup sucanat
1 tsp vanilla extract
Vegan chocolate chips (optional)

Preheat oven to 350F. Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cocoa in a medium bowl. Combine remaining ingredients in another bowl. Combine wet into dry, mix until just combine, then mix in chocolate if desired. Spoon mixture into paper lined muffin tins. Bake for 26 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Makes 10 muffins.
