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 large mixing bowl using an electric mixer, cream together the brown sugar and coconut oil.
Add the bananas, flax egg, almond milk, and vanilla and beat to combine.
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.
