Vegan Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

One of my kids is a fairly picky eater.  He likes very few foods.  Luckily, the foods he likes are healthy.  We just made an awesome smoothie together.
We just threw in the Vitamix:
chia seeds
a peeled orange
a banana
about 1/4 cup hemp seeds
Blend it all up and enjoy a cup of healthy deliciousness!

My picky eater never knows what he wants for breakfast.  On the weekend we try to create some healthy muffins to eat throughout the week.  Here are the muffins we just made, hot out of the toaster oven.  These muffins are vegan if you use one of the 3 egg substitutes. I prefer 3 T of aquafaba (chickpea brine).  If you do not like aquafaba you can easily substitute a chia egg or a flax egg.  If you are not vegan you should use 2 egg whites.

These can be made non-vegan as well.  Those substitutions are in parentheses.
