Vegan MoFo Day 15: Muffin Monday

It's Monday already, how did that happen.And no, Muffin Monday isn't a new MoFo theme, I just like alliteration.

But anyway, I made muffins yesterday and they turned out good, if a bit mutated, so I thought I'd post the recipe, as I haven't posted a recipe for a while.  I'm sure there's a billion similar recipes on the tinternet but sod it, have another!

I'm gonna call them chunky monkeys too because, nuts & chocolates & bananas and stuff.
Yes, those are Christmas muffin liners. It's all I could find and hey, there's only 100 days to go!! You're welcome. :p

Chunky Monkey Muffins
Wet Ingredients
3 overripe bananas
1 cup unsweetened soy or other non-dairy milk of your choice
1 tsp apple cider vinegar
1/3 cup sunflower or rapeseed (canola) oil
2 tsps vanilla paste or extract1 tsp maple extract (optional but awesome!)
1 cup of sugar

Dry Ingredients
2 cups self-raising flour (or if you don't have that, use plain flour and 1 tsp baking powder + 1/2 tsp baking soda)
1/2 cup oats
Pinch of salt
1/8 tsp allspice
1/2 cup walnut pieces
1/2 cup chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F and line a 12 hole muffin tray with paper liners.

Mash the bananas, they don't have to be totally smooth, some texture is good. Then mix in the rest of the wet ingredients until combined.

Then add in all the dry ingredients and stir until just combined; don't over-mix.

Once combined, divide between the muffin cases (I totally overfill every time I do muffins, so I only got 11!) and bake for around 20 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean.

Cool in the tin for a few minutes then transfer to a wire rack to finish cooling.

Try to wait longer than 30 seconds before troughing one to avoid burning the crap outta your tongue. Not that that happened!!



  1. Mmmm muffins!! And hey, at least you didn't use Christmas liners in January. September is almost acceptable.

  2. You're a trendsetter with the liners. Fashionably early.


speak to me, yo!
