Made with just a few basic ingredients, this easy vegan banana muffins recipe is a perfect baking recipe for beginners. They are fluffy, moist, and delicious.
Though even in normal days I am strictly against wasting food, the current global crisis of COVID-19 has made me more conscious of effectively using whatever is available in my kitchen. These days I am trying to cook only with minimum and easily available ingredients.
Today I am sharing a very easy and tasty vegan recipe which you can make with pantry staples. The recipe is of vegan banana muffins which are loved by everyone in my family. The recipe is so simple that even baking beginners and kids can make them easily.
Type of banana to use
This vegan muffin turns out best if you use overripe bananas, the ones with brown skin. Personally, I cannot eat overripe bananas which are too soft to touch so this is my favorite way of finishing them off. If you have bought too many bananas in your panic shopping and now don’t know what to do with them try this recipe.
Frozen bananas can also be used in this recipe. However, since after thawing they will release extra moisture either wipe it off with a tissue paper or adjust the quantity of milk to get the right consistency of the batter.
- Instead of walnuts, you can use any other dry fruit or berries of your choice. A combination of dry fruits, berries, and nuts will make them yummier
- If you love chocolate, add chocolate chips to the batter. You can also add cocoa powder to it
- Add a few tablespoons of peanut butter to the batter to make banana peanut butter muffins. You can also add chopped roasted peanuts to add a crunch
