Vegan Healthy Banana Oatmeal Muffins

Over the years I have baked a lot using bananas, but haven't baked banana oatmeal muffins. This time while browsing for banana recipes in Pinterest I happened to see a couple of banana muffins with oats recipes. Many of those banana oat muffins recipes were easy to bake and healthy too.

Took inspiration from few recipes and I put together my own eggless version of healthy banana muffins with oats. These are not just oatmeal banana muffins without eggs but are vegan too.

I have used flax egg as egg substitute in this banana muffin recipe. Also since I was not following any recipe in particular I decided to make a small batch because didn't want to take a chance of wasting the ingredients if it didn't turn out good.

Egg Free Banana Oatmeal Muffins

I need not have worried after all because these no egg banana oatmeal muffins turned out absolutely great! The muffins could have been a little bit sweeter for most of the people I guess but it was fine for us because we don't prefer very sweet muffins.

I also made it as mini banana oat muffins so that I can pack it as a small snack for my kids' school. That's why didn't add walnuts or any other nuts because schools here are nut-free.

I tried to incorporate few ingredients to make it a healthy breakfast oatmeal muffin recipe. So I have used whole wheat pastry flour, coconut palm sugar, avocado oil and organic almond milk. In the past I have sometimes not liked banana muffins made with whole wheat flour.

So tried it with whole wheat pastry flour this time and it was really good. Didn't miss the all-purpose flour at all.

These eggless banana oat muffins can be frozen and thawed before serving. Once the muffins are cool completely wrap it individually with plastic wrap and store the wrapped muffins in a freezer safe plastic bag. Thaw it overnight or warm it up in the microwave oven for a few seconds before serving.

A few things can be done to make banana muffins more moist such as:

  1. increasing the quantity of mashed bananas
  2. increasing the quantity of oil a bit, and
  3. reducing the baking time.
  4. adding yogurt or buttermilk might also help.

    Just made these. Used white flour because I didn’t have whole wheat pastry. Followed all other directions exactly. I cooked them for about 20 minutes because they didn’t seem quite ready. They didn’t look like yours did not change in size but were tasty! Thank you.

      Did you make them as mini muffins or regular size muffins? Regular sized muffins will need more time.

    “That’s why didn’t add walnuts or any other nuts because schools here are nut-free.”

    What is almond milk made from?

    We have a child who is allergic to milk, eggs and tree nuts (he can have peanuts).

      Thanks for bringing it to my attention, Jackie.
