A couple of days ago, a dear friend asked my for an easy crowd-pleasing recipe. Oh, and party-proof aka can be eaten by hand as well. There’s isn’t much that screams party like a good muffin (maybe ice cream though…) and no forks or plates needed. After all, a party without a cake is just a meeting. This Banana Chocolate Muffin recipe is quite a cheeky monkey tbf. It’s so delicious your guest will never know that is is gluten-free, white sugar-free and vegan (the horror)….haha…
Cheeky monkeys aren’t your cup of tea? Maybe have a look at my Fig Anise Biscotti instead?
This recipe for vegan Banana Chocolate Muffins is:
- Vegan (no dairy, no eggs)
- No added white sugars
A party classic: These deliciously moist Banana Chocolate Muffins are vegan and super easy to bake.
- 4 very ripe bananas
- 100 g gluten-free oats
- 130 g rice flour
- 1 pinch of salt
- 1 tbsp. flax seed flour (ground flax seeds)
- 2 tsp. baking powder
- 80 ml oat milk
- 150 g vegan dark chocolate (mind 85%)
- 80 g maple syrup
- 0.5 tsp. cinnamon and ground ginger
- 0.5 banana, sliced
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C and grease a muffin pan with coconut oil or your grease of choice. In case you have muffin liners, you can use them of course. Prepare a flax egg: Add the flax flour into a small bowl and add 50ml warm water, combine really well and set aside. Grind the oats until you get fine oat flour and combine with the rice flour, salt, spices and baking powder. Chop the dark chocolate into small pieces and add to your flour mix. Set aside. Now pick up your blender again and add the chopped bananas, 80ml of oat milk and maple syrup. Blend well until its all mush. Add the flax egg and blend again. Add your wet mix to the flour bowl and combine swiftly. Don't over-do it. The dough doesn't have to be well incorporated at all, i.e. flour bits should still be visible. Distribute evenly into your muffin cups and place a banana slice on top of every muffin. Bake for about 30 to 35 minutes.

Hi there! I created Miss Walter’s to include loved ones with dietary restraints (chosen or not) at the dessert table. I share all my favourite vegan dessert recipes with you so that you can do the same. Because sharing food has the power to unite us, so let’s not get our diet in the way of eating and sharing delicious cakes.
