Healthy Chocolate Banana Muffins (sneakily turned into cupcakes!)

My son turns 2 on Friday, and instead of making him "real" cupcakes (where the sugar content would surely turn him into the Tasmanian Devil), I decided to take this healthy chocolate banana muffin recipe (gluten, dairy and refined sugar free) and top it with a healthy coconut milk frosting! #momwinfosho!

The kids loved them and the adults didn't have to peel their kids off the ceiling after they were consumed. Saa-weet! (pun intended).

You can either do as I did, and combine these two recipes to make healthy cupcakes, or you can skip the frosting and just make the muffins as a healthy breakfast option or as a healthy afternoon snack. Both recipes are ridiculously easy and require next to no time to make.
