Perfectly fluffy, light, and full of banana flavor, these classic vegan banana muffins are the perfect breakfast or dessert. You’ll love the soft texture inside as well as the crunch of sugar on top of each muffin.
There’s nothing like a warm batch of vegan banana muffins! The aroma of fresh baked muffins or banana bread is always a welcome way to start off your morning.
There are so many ways to make banana muffins. No matter what kind of dietary needs you have, you can probably find a recipe that will suit you!
This recipe is dairy free and egg free, making these suitable for a vegan diet. This is a recipe that works well for breakfast, brunch, or packing in school lunches. You can even make a double batch and freeze some of them so that you have them on hand whenever you need a snack in a hurry.
I love these banana muffins because they are so simple and delicious. These are fluffy, have a great flavor, and the crunch of sugar on top is a nice touch that reminds me of a bakery style treat.
- Egg Replacer – This recipe actually has a couple of egg replacers. Bananas are a great substitute for eggs, and they do double duty in this recipe – adding great flavor and holding these muffins together. And to get these muffins to rise, and become light and fluffy, this recipe uses baking soda and vinegar.
- Water – There’s no need for any milk or non-dairy milk in this recipe. Water works just fine!
- Flour – I used white spelt flour, but you can easily use all-purpose flour if you like.
- Sugar – I used organic cane sugar, but you could use light brown sugar or even coconut sugar if you prefer. The color of the muffins will be slightly darker if you use those types of sugars.
- Vegan Buttery Spread – I like the flavor that melted vegan buttery spread gives to these muffins, but you could also use organic canola oil or melted coconut oil.
Tips for Success
- Make sure you use parchment paper cupcake liners for the best result – that will make it easy to get the muffins out of the pan.
- Use a banana that is ripe or over ripe for the best flavor.
- If you’re using frozen, over ripe bananas from the freezer, be sure to thaw them fully before adding to the batter.
If you want to try something different, you can add any of the following to the batter:
- chocolate chips
- pumpkin seeds or sunflower seeds
- nuts like walnuts or pecans if you don’t have a nut allergy
- dried cranberries
