Egg free, simple, and delicious. The surprise is a chocolate center... or you could make these banana chocolate chip cupcakes.

Thank you for caring to share this fabulous recipe! I first tried exactly according to the recipe and then tried playing with it. All three batches turned out deliciously. All of my cupcakes rose perfectly, no issues at all. Yummy! I will try to post the sub-creation recipe on this site. Stay tuned: Fresh Strawberry Icelandic Skyr Yogurt Cupcakes!
