Vegan Banana Bread Muffins Recipe

Makes 8


3 medium ripe bananas
1 and 1/2 cup of all-purpose flour - 200g
1/2 cup of almond milk - 130g
1/4 cup of peanut butter - 80g
1 pinch of salt
2/3 cup of vegan chocolate chunks - 100g
1 teaspoon of lemon juice
1 teaspoon of baking soda
1 teaspoon of baking powder


1. Preheat the oven to 325°F (170°C).

2. Line a muffin tray with paper muffin cases.

3. In a mixing bowl, mash the bananas up with a fork.

4. Once your bananas are mashed up, add the milk, lemon juice and peanut butter. Mix well.

5. Add the flour, salt, baking soda and baking powder.

Whisk until a smooth mix.

However, be mindful that you don’t overmix the mixture.

You want there to be an element of air to the batter.

6. Lastly, add the chocolate chunks and gently stir them through.

7. Pour the mix into the muffin cases and place in the oven for around 30 minutes.

Note: Baking at 325°F is giving these muffins extra moisture and softness.

When they are cooked, take them out and allow the banana bread muffins to cool before enjoying them. 

Serving Suggestions 

Add a dollop of vegan ice cream and enjoy them warm or cold.

They are also excellent on the go so could be a lovely breakfast treat on your way to work.

The muffins are easy to transport making them excellent for the commute to work or even for a school lunchbox. 

Recipe Notes and Tips

While the recipe is quite simple to follow, there are some notes and tips to be aware of that can make them a whole lot easier to make.

Here are a few things to consider:

You may think that baking at 325°F (165C) is too low in temperature but it will give these muffins extra moisture and softness.

Make two batches.

These types of treats always go down well and you can freeze a batch for future use.

If your bananas are not ripe enough add them to a brown paper bag and close it loosely.

Within a day your bananas should be ripe enough to use.

If you are unsure how to check if they are cooked then use a skewer to prick the muffin.

If it comes out clean they are cooked all the way through.

Variations to Try

There will always be variations that you can try when it comes to this recipe, here are a few that you might like to try:

If you are not 100% keen on the peanut butter, you could try almond butter instead.

You could also leave the chocolate chips out if you preferred not to add them.

Add some crushed peanuts, almonds, or walnuts if you want to add a little more protein to the banana bread muffins.
