BANANA NUT MUFFINS- Vegan, Gluten-Free, Refined Sugar-Free & Oil-Free

A Tim Horton’s opened up next to where I work. I walk past it at least twice a day and every time I do memories of their banana nut muffins dance through my head. It wasn’t long before I was craving muffins on a daily basis, so I did what I do whenever I get a craving for a food I can’t have anymore…

Banana Nut MuffinsI make my own version! My own healthier version. My own more delicious version.

Moist banana muffins spotted with crunchy walnuts. These gems aren’t only filled with two different fruits, they’re made with whole grain flours too!

Instructions:

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare muffin tin with liners. 
  2. In a medium bowl cream together banana, applesauce, maple syrup, unsweetened non-dairy milk, coconut sugar (if using), ground flax seeds and apple cider vinegar.
  3. In a second bowl combine flours, baking powder, baking soda, sea salt and spices.
  4. Add the contents of the second bowl into the first bowl and mix until combined.
