How to make vegan banana muffins

Print this recipe
I don’t know how I’d get through life without my favorite breakfast —muffins. There is no better way to get the day started than a slightly sweet, fruity, cakey muffin. The recipe that follows is easy to make, can be made ahead so you can have your beloved treat for days, and is totally portable. Just grab one and head out the door.
I use brown sugar instead of white sugar in these muffins because I love the rich, toffee like flavor it gives the muffins. You can add other mix-ins in addition to the walnuts, such as raisins or even chocolate chips. Sprinkle a little turbinado or raw sugar on top of the muffins before baking for a sweet little crunch.

In a separate mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and beat to combine.
Stir in the walnuts.
Scoop the batter into the prepared muffin cups, filling cups halfway.
Bake in the preheated oven for 19 to 21 minutes, until the tops are golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
Transfer the muffins to a wire rack to cool completely.

This might look like a complicated recipe, but the brilliance of it is that you can make the parts separately. The pickled onions last up to two weeks in the fridge, and the rest of the recipe is incredibly quick and simple to make.

Watermelon is quite possibly the tastiest fruit to enjoy during the hot summer months. Unfortunately, getting to that juicy fruit can be a bit of a hassle.
