Vegan Banana Muffins

Another vegan recipe that is sure to please! Muffins can pack in as many as 600 calories each! There are healthier options on the market now: ic1806. I enjoy a nice 100 calorie, chocolate VitaTop on occassion. Though, they are a little pricey and making your own is much more satisfying! I made these prior to going on a road trip. I stopped in to visit with some family on the way and they loved these muffins so much that they were gone before I left the same day! I think they are the perfect muffin, super moist and very easy to make. Try using the same recipe with blueberries, apples or other fillings.


4 ripe bananas
1/2C brown sugar or 1/2C pure maple syrup (I used brown sugar)
1/2C Vegetable oil
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon cardamon powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
1C whole wheat flour
11/2C white flour
1teaspoon baking powder
1teaspoon baking soda


-Preheat over to 350F
-Grease or place cups in tin for 12 muffins
-Mash bananas in a bowl (or if the bananas are not very ripe, use a food processor!)
-Add oil, sugar (or maple syrup), salt, cinnamon and cardamon and mix
-Add flours, baking powder and baking soda and mix
-Spoon into muffin tins and bake for 20-25 minutes until muffins are done and slightly browned on top
