Vegan Banana Nut Muffins (Gluten/Soy-Free)

Scott bought a mere eight very large and very ripe bananas that all need to get used up, like before they even left the grocery store.

But since they’re ours now, I needed to whip up something using them.  So here’s a quick, easy, vegan muffin recipe for you!

 Blend first two ingredients, the cashews & flax seeds.

Then add everything else and blend it together with whatever appliance floats your muffy-makin’ boat.  Mine was the VitaMuffyMaker.

Batter Up

Pour into Muffin Tins

Bake at 350F for 18-24 minutes (mine were gooey at 18 mins and I took out at 20 mins for that smidge underbaked goodness I go for)

Voila, 8 little Vegan Banana Nut Muffins

Enjoy!  Great for lunches, kid snacks, breakfast with a slather of nut butter on top, you name it, suuuuper easy and as always vegan, gluten & soy-free with no additional oil added.

  9. professional answer to this insurance question: Do all states require car insurance?

  10. Restaurants in the United States. Search or browse list of restaurants.

  11. I would love to make vegan puppy chow, but I would prefer to not make it with Earth Balance.

    Can you think of something else that could replace it?

    Apple sauce wouldn't work right?

  12. Love the vegan puppy chow! Have yo ever tried making it with almond butter?

  13. I had sweet potato fries for the first time from a local deli here and it was a different taste for sure! I like sweet potatoes but don't think I care for them fried too much… I'd like to try the broccoli salad!

  14. yum! my girlfriend makes the vegans chex mix all the time~it is ADDICTING.. i have to stay far from it :)

    your desserts always impress me but when you whip up the savory dishes i am astonished at your creativity. i mean seriously.. you are so good at making up salad dressings! i would never put apple cider vinegar, sugar and mayo on broccoli but i bet it is a bangin savory combo! i am more into savory than sweet so i love when i see stuff like this! plus they are recipes i can use for me and not for the friends.. if i used all your sweet recipes for me i would be roughly the size of a hippopotamus ;)

    loving the SP fries and did you know yesterday was national potato day?! yes yes yes!

    fave kitchen appliance.. hum that is hard. probably my espresso machine though, honestly.. i love some strong coffee!

    ok, long comment :P

    love to you!

    p.s. guess what i did today? mailed something … FINALLY!

  15. Yum, yum, yum! I agree about the stinkiness of broccoli, not much to be done though. It even smells that way Raw! Those dough balls look delish! I am officially in cacao withdrawals so this didn't help! : )

    My favorite appliance is my vitamix as well. Can't live without it! By the way, have you seen the new Ninja blender. It's like the magic bullet on steroids. My sister just got one and loves it. Just thought I'd pass it by you: )

  16. Oh my goodness, I used to eat non-vegan chocolate pb chex mix by the POUND in high school! I haven't had it since then, so I definitely need to make this!! Have you considered starting your own cookbook? I'm being completely serious here. You need to! :) I can help edit, if need be.

    Hope your week is going fabulously!! xoxo :)

  17. ahhhhh vegan puppy chow? i am a goner. this looks too good to be true. along with one of my fave foods of all time – sweet potato fries – this post is killer. and those raw choco chip cookies are adorable!

    love youuuuuuu

  18. Thanks for the broc recipe…I have done a raw broc recipe before, but it has been awhile. Maybe I will try raw broc again and see how I do : )

    The Chex Mix looks amazing!!! Love it!

  19. Chex Mix of any kind is like crack! I couldn't live without my blender despite the fact that its leaky. The chex mix would be a good option for when I'm with my more conventional eating family members.

  20. love love love the broccoli salad – mainly because broccoli is the BEST veggie alive :) so trying that soon.

  21. Averie,
    Reading blogs at work. Have client waiting for me, but had to leave a quick comment that I AM SO EXCITED about your broccoli salad recipe. It's always my favorite thing at salad bars. Something about that bacon raisin mayo combo. Going to try your version soon. We use the same mayo!
    Thanks for posting.
    Love, HEAB :)

  22. My mini food processor has to be my favorite kitchen appliance right now. it seems like i constantly am whipping up things in it and its a cinch to clean as well!! double love:) second would be my vitamix (i have an OLDie but a goodie) and third would be my greenstar juicer because its harder to clean than these other two!

    i can't wait to try the choc chip cookies – but i WONT be making the puppy chow! I have had it in my past and know that to make it is DANGEROUS for me – i could eat the ENTIRE bowl its so damn good. so off limits haha…

  23. I've only been following for just over a week, but I absolutely LOVE your blog! Everything about it is wonderful! I'll be checking it every day! Thanks so much!
