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.

    Aloha from Hawaii!

    Just made these and they are awesome! So much richer than I was expecting considering they don’t contain eggs.

    I used coconut oil (which I use mostly now that I’ve read “The Coconut Oil Miracle”) and whole milk.

    Mahalo for the great recipe!

Words to Eat By

"It is easier to change a man's religion than to change his diet." -Margaret Mead

"I don't understand why asking people to eat a well-balanced vegetarian diet is considered drastic, while it is medically conservative to cut people open and put them on cholesterol lowering drugs for the rest of their lives." - Dean Ornish, MD

“Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
