Oil-Free (and Vegan) Banana Muffins

I’m always trying to find ways to indulge in what I love but keep it lower in fat and calories. So I created this incredibly delicious recipe for oil-free banana muffins that are so dense and sweet you’ll eat the whole batch! No seriously, you will…

Recipe: Banana Muffins From: Margaret Chapman at Plant Based on a Budget

  • Yield : 16
  • Servings : 16
  • Prep Time : 5m
  • Cook Time : 25m
  • Ready In : 30m


  • 3 very ripe Bananas (mashed)
  • 1/2 cup Vanilla Almond Milk (or any non-dairy milk + 1 tsp. vanilla extract)
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • 2 cups Flour (can omit for oat flour)
  • 1 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1/2 tsp Cinnamon (optional, but do it!)
  • 1/4 tsp Salt


Step 1

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F

Step 2

In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking soda, salt & cinnamon. In a medium bowl, mash up your 3 super ripe bananas with a fork, then whisk in the almond milk & vanilla extract if using.

Step 3

Fold the wet with the dry and mix till full incorporated. You can use a mixer, but I just used a fork and it works perfectly. Since we’re not using oil in this recipe you’ll need to line your cupcake/muffin pans with liners.

Step 4

Using a tablespoon scoop, measure out two rounded scoops of batter per cup/liner. Bake for 22-26 minutes or until golden brown and cooked in the middle.

Step 5

Top with a dollop of peanut butter and some banana slices. Serve warm with a glass of almond milk, Enjoy!

A cup of sugar!!! Muffins used to be wholesome bread substitutes and now seem to be dessert. Please don't poison yourselves or you family with sugar. Just say no! Doesn't Care2 screen these recipes?

This sounds fantastic, but I wonder if 1 cup of sugar will make it too sweet though. I will have to try it and then adjust it if I need to.Thank you for sharing the recipe.
