Marshmallow Swirl Double Chocolate Banana Muffins

"With a long name like that these better be some amazing muffins, and let me tell you THEY ARE! It's another rainy August morning in Seattle and I woke up really craving some banana muffins. After looking through my recipes I decided to create something a little bit different that your average muffin. First off these muffins are gluten-free which makes them great for anyone looking for a gluten-free breakfast option. I always use Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free 1-1 Baking Flour, which I find lends a great texture when baking and honestly I can rarely tell they are even gluten free! I then loaded these up with all the classic banana muffin ingredients with the addition of some Hershey's Mini Chocolate Chips and Cocoa Powder. These both add such a rich chocolatey bite that will honestly keep you going back for more. Lastly (and definitely not least) I swirled some Jet-Puffed Marshmallow Creme on top, and OMG these actually might be my most favorite muffin recipe yet."
