Vegan Whole Grain Banana Muffins

This morning I came downstairs hungry and realized we had three ripe bananas that were begging to be made into something. Now normally I have a system for my bananas — if I have 2 ripe bananas I make pancakes, 3 I make bread and 4 I make my usual banana muffin recipe. But when I peeked in the fridge I realized we had no milk, no eggs and no butter. What’s a girl to do? So I experimented a bit and made these vegan banana muffins since we were out of everything! And my, are the moist and delish for being pretty healthy too. Whole grains + sunflower seeds, pecans, and flax seeds give them rich flavor…plus I added some chocolate chips, just for good measure. ;)


3 ripe bananas
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup maple syrup
1/3 cup canola oil
1/3 cup coconut or almond milk
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup oatmeal
1/2 cup nuts or seeds (I used sunflower seeds, flax seeds, and pecans)


Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees. Mix together wet ingredients. I like to mash the bananas right in my Kitchenaid mixer before adding all the rest. Then add the remaining dry ingredients, followed by the nuts and seeds. Scoop into greased muffin pan and sprinkle a few nuts on top. Bake for 18-20 minutes. Makes 12-16 muffins.
