Good morning! And Happy Friday the 13th!
What are you doing today? Staying in? Hiding? Looking for black cats? ;)
We are just doing some last minute Valentine’s Day preparations – the boys need to make valentines for Daddy and Grandma and Grandpa, and I need to find my smallest heart cookie cutter to cut out heart-shaped pepperoni because I have a request for a heart-shaped pizza tomorrow.
But, I thought I’d share a really easy and healthier recipe for vegan banana chocolate chip mini muffins today. If you make these in some colorful cupcake liners, these could be a cute addition to your Valentine’s Day festivities tomorrow!
I’ve made these a little bit healthier with the addition of coconut oil and maple syrup. No unhealthy oils here, and just a minimal amount of sweetener. It’s important to use a SUPER ripe banana for that reason – it will add a lot of natural sweetness.
Do I need an egg replacer to make vegan banana muffins?
The mashed banana will not only add flavor, but also work to bind the batter. You don’t need an additional egg replacer for this recipe.
