Delightful Banana Nut Muffins

This is my most requested recipe. They are AMAZINGLY wonderful, moist, and vegan! They are delicious with hot tea.

Delightful Banana Nut Muffins
Cookbook: The Garden of Vegan
By Sarah Kramer and Tanya Barnard


1 1/3 cups whole wheat flour
½ cup dry sweetener (I like rapadura or turbinado)
1 t baking powder
1 t baking soda
½ t salt
¾ cup ground flaxseed (or oat bran)
½ cup chopped walnuts (optional)
2 bananas, mashed
1/3 cup olive oil
1 t vanilla extract
2/3 cup soy, rice, or almond milk

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a large bowl, stir together the flour, sweetener, baking powder, baking soda, salt, flax or oat bran, and walnuts. In a small bowl, combine the bananas, oil, vanilla and soy milk. Pour the liquid ingredients with the dry and mix together gently until “just mixed”. Spoon into a lightly oiled muffin pan and bake for 15-20 minutes. Makes 12 muffins.

I'm hoping you'll find this question. Have you tried using wheat bran in this recipe? I'm going to try it, maybe a mix of the two brans, and hope I don't get mush.

Why do you use flax seed?

Yes, in fact...wheat bran is what it originally called for, but because I never had it on hand, I substituted flax. Either one works great. I've also done 1/2 and 1/2 and it's fine. You just have to experiment to find your perfect texture. Yum!

I'm going to fiddle with this recipe at bit, for the dry and wet ingredients. I like to use yogurt and molasses in muffin recipes

Have you bookmarked now. Thanks Sara.

Love these muffins! I will use wheat bran instead of flax to cut cost, but I will be saving this recipe- thanks!

These were good. I used unstweetened apple sauce instead of canola. It saves some calories. I also used brown sugar. They were lacking in the sweetness the kids would want so I drizzled honey on them. The honey made them perfect!

I'm so excited to have found this recipe, and your blog! I was looking for a vegan banana nut muffin, and was hoping for one that had whole wheat flour and flax seed--and there you were!

Thanks for posting...I'm looking forward to reading more of your blog. :)

Sara: I knew when I scooped the batter into the muffin pan and the recipe created the perfect amount for twelve muffins, that this was going to be a winner. We were not disappointed - light, tender and not too sweet - perfect for vegan cream cheese and sweet raspberry jam. BTW, I substituted organic unbleached white flour (it is all I had on hand) and canola oil (the Israeli olive oil in my pantry had too strong an olive flavor for muffins, in my humble opinion). Sheer banana nut joy!

Hey, just looking around some blogs, seems a pretty nice platform you are using. I'm currently using Wordpress for a few of my sites but looking to change one of them over to a platform similar to yours as a trial run. Anything in particular you would recommend about it? Sbobet Casino Tangkasnet

I must admit that this is one great insight. It surely gives a company the opportunity to get in on the ground floor and really take part in creating something special and tailored to their needs. Prediksi Bola Agen Bola Prediksi Bola

Hrmm that was weird, my comment got eaten. Anyway I wanted to say that it's nice to know that someone else also mentioned this as I had trouble finding the same info elsewhere. This was the first place that told me the answer. Thanks. Spesifikasi Smartphone Prediksi Bola
