Easy Vegan Banana Nut Muffins

These muffins are the perfect on-the-go breakfast or a quick afternoon snack! They’re naturally sweetened with bananas and maple syrup and contain just 200 calories per muffin. They are really easy to make and are sure to be a new staple breakfast recipe.


Flax egg – A flax egg is a replacement for an egg. This is necessary to make sure the muffins stick together and hold their shape. Just mix 1 tablespoon flaxseed with 3 tablespoons water and set aside for 5 minutes. After 5 minutes, you should notice the mixture become more gel like in consistency.

Oat flour – You can buy oat flour or make your own. To make your own, simply add rolled oats to a food processor or blended and blend until they resemble a flour consistency.

Almond butter – I recommend a natural, drippy almond butter. I like the Kirkland brand. You can substitute another nut butter but almond butter tends to be more neutral tasting. I find it gives it the best flavor without being overpowering.

Bananas– I recommend using bananas that are very ripe. They should be brown and spotty. The riper the bananas, the sweeter the muffins will be. They are also easier to mash when ripe.

Maple syrup – This adds extra sweetness to your muffins. Make sure to use 100% pure maple syrup not pancake syrup.

Walnuts – You can substitute walnuts for any nut you prefer. You could also use chocoocltae chips or raisins instead.
