Vegan Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

Adding chocolate chips to the batter makes these whole wheat banana muffins a real treat. For extra flavor, add a handful of toasted chopped hazelnuts or almonds. (egg-free, dairy-free, vegan recipe)

Vegan Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 cup unsweetened soymilk or almond milk
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup sucanat or organic evaporated cane sugar
1 cup mashed very ripe bananas
1/4 cup canola or safflower oil
1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla
1/2 cup vegan semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line 12 regular size (2 1/2-inch) muffin cups with paper baking cups. (Or, coat muffin cups with cooking spray.)

In large bowl mix flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon. Set aside.

Stir together soymilk and vinegar; let stand 2 minutes until thickened. In medium bowl mix soymilk mixture, sucanat, banana, oil and vanilla until well blended. Add to flour mixture, stirring until just combined. Stir in chocolate chips. Divide batter among muffin cups.

Bake 18 to 22 minutes or until browned and toothpick inserted in centers comes out clean. Cool in pan 5 minutes. Remove from pan and cool on wire rack. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Makes 12 muffins

Tip: You’ll need 3 medium bananas for this recipe. Use very ripe bananas for the best flavor.

    Those look delicious! I love the ingredients list 🙂

    Mmm, those look scrumptious! I like that there’s not a ton of oil in the ingredients… a lot of vegan recipes have much more than that. AND there’s not any bizarre ingredients that I don’t keep on hand… simple is better! I love it. I can do it. 🙂

    I made these last night…delish!! And my non-vegan husband loved them, too!

    Kelly- That’s great! I love it when people discover that vegan and vegetarian foods are delicious…not weird.
    Thanks for sharing,

    I just made these tonight and the whole family loved them! Thanks for the recipe. I used vegan carob chips instead of chocolate (due to an allergy) and made them as mini-muffins (baked them at 350 degrees about 11 minutes).

    Very tasty! I added 1/2 cup of hemp for protein.

    Hi Nancy- Great idea to add hemp to the muffins. Did you add hemps seeds or a hemp protein powder? I’ll have to give it a try the next time I make muffins.

    Hi Jen, I added 1/2 cup hemp seeds. They made the muffins very filling!

    I made these muffins tonight, and they were lovely. I used white whole wheat flour and chunked up a dark chocolate bar for the chocolate chips, I also made them in mini-muffin pans. The best part? my father (an omni who considers vegan food to be a deeply suspicious domain of hippies) not only tried one without any prodding, he grabbed a couple more off the cooling rack to snack on. Delicious!

    Hi Erica- Thanks for your note. The comment about your father made me smile…sounds just like my dad! Glad the muffins were a hit.
