Tasty Tuesday: Vegan Banana Muffins

Long weekend calls for home-baking!

This week we put together a vegan banana muffin recipe, where you can adjust the flavours yourself. Banana nut? Banana blueberry? Banana chocolate chip? Banana raisin? Banana chocolate peanut butter? Or all of them in one? I mean whatever floats your boat.

Recipe adapted from simple-veganista


  • 1 3/4 cups spelt flour, or flour of choice
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup light flavored olive oil or warmed coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup organic pure cane sugar or coconut sugar
  • 4 small or 3 large overripe bananas, mashed
  • **Optional: chocolate chips, walnuts, raisins, frozen blueberries, peanut butter, cocoa powder



  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Combine all dry ingredients ie; flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt in a medium/large size bowl and set to the side.
  3. In a small bowl, mix oil, sugar and vanilla and mix in with the dry ingredients. Temporarily set aside.
  4. Mash up the bananers, there should be about 1 1/2 – 1 3/4 cups. Add to the batter and mix until it is well combined. If it seems as though the mixture is too dry, add a bit of non-dairy milk.
  5. This is the step you get to choose your flavours/toppings. Mix in whatever ingredients you would like and adjust accordingly to your liking.
  6. Scoop into a paper lined or well greased muffin tray. 19692616_10156493949278508_631069610_n19832791_10156493949353508_1630552108_n-e1499179473424.jpg
  7. Bake for 20-25 minutes. Use a toothpick to test the centre, if it comes out clean then it is ready.


  8. Remove from oven and let cool for about 10 minutes. 19756234_10156493949528508_826007776_n.jpg
