Vegan banana walnut muffins for breakfast on Meatless Monday
No one's saying you have to go meatless just because it's Monday -- but here's some incentive to join the growing movement.
We're now featuring an animal-free recipe each week. For our opening act, we decided to tackle vegan baking. It's surprisingly easy: These muffins are moist and fluffy, and they make a portable and delicious breakfast or snack.
You will need:
2 1/2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup oil
4 ripe bananas, mashed
1/4 cup water
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup walnut pieces
Makes 12 muffins.
Preheat your oven to 350F degrees and grease your muffin tins.
1. Mix together the flour, baking soda and salt until blended.
2. In a separate bowl, combine the sugar and the oil.
3. Peel the bananas and place them in a third bowl. (Last one, we promise.)
