Eggless Mocha Chocolate Chip Banana muffins

Happy Raksha Bandhan everyone! This is a festival to celebrate the love between brother and sisters. A festival where all the sisters tie a beautiful Rakhi to their brothers and get blessings and gifts from them. "Raksha" means Protect and "Bandhan" means Bond, that is the Bond of Protection. One of the sweet tradition in India where brother vows to protect his sister no matter what. And sister ties the sacred Rakhi to protect her brother from any harm.
