Recipe: Vegan banana chocolate chip muffins
- 2 cups whole-wheat pastry flour or unbleached all-purpose flour
- 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1⁄3 cup canola or grapeseed oil
- 4 ripe bananas, mashed
- 1/4 cup water
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips (and/or 1 cup walnuts)
1 Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease your muffin tins.
2 Mix together the flour, baking soda, and salt.
3 In a large bowl, beat the sugar and oil together, then add the mashed bananas. Stir in the water and vanilla and mix thoroughly. Add the flour mixture, along with the chocolate chips, and stir to mix. (Alternatively, you may just peel the bananas, break them into a food processor, and puree them along with the sugar and oil. Add the water and vanilla, then transfer to a bowl. Stir in the flour combo, and add the chocolate chips.)
4 Fill each muffin tin halfway with the batter. Bake for 20–30 minutes, until they are golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
Yield : 9 or 10 muffins.
