Vegan Banana Muffins

Mashed banana is the perfect replacement for eggs in baking so this recipe is great if you are new to catering for allergies, are vegan or if you have lots of over ripe bananas in your fruit bowl! This doesn’t happen in our house, if I want to bake banana cake I have to hide a few bananas so they don’t get eaten!
It’s very quick to make and freezes really well too. The following recipe will make 16 -20 large muffins or one 2lb loaf cake!

YOU WILL NEED:

290g self raising flour

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp bicarb of soda

120g caster sugar

1 large over ripe banana

175g oat milk (or other non dairy milk)

150ml veg oil

Demerara sugar

 

METHOD:

  1. Preheat the oven to 180*C and place your muffin liners in a muffin tray or prepare your loaf tin with a greaseproof liner.
  2. Mix all of your dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, bicarb and caster sugar) in a large bowl and mash your banana in a smaller bowl.

  1. Sprinkle the tops of the mixture (generously!) with Demerara sugar which will give you a lovely crunchy top when they are baked (the best part!)
  2. Bake for around 30 minutes for muffins and 40 minutes for a loaf cake.

TO FREEZE: Muffins can be placed in a plastic tub or in a freezer bag. Your loaf cake can be wrapped whole in cling film and frozen or you can slice it first. Just separate each slice with greaseproof paper and store in the same way as the muffins. Place in a lunch box while still frozen for fresh cake at lunch time!
