Are you looking for the vegan banana muffin recipe with a little sweet addition such as chocolate? These vegan banana chocolate chip muffins are my go-to breakfast I like to make if I am feeling a little on the naughtier side.
The good thing with vegan breakfast muffins is that you can make them as healthy or as healthily-sweet as you like. For a healthier version, omit the vegan chocolate chips and you have healthy and yummy vegan banana muffins. Also, there is a sweet ingredient that is a secret of mine that I use to make my muffins (and vegan desserts) naturally sweet.
You can adapt this recipe to your style, using and trying new ingredients, for example, different fruits or even coconut chips or dried fruits. I came across this banana muffin recipe that incorporates raisins, nuts and seeds, so if this is more your type, check it out! It’s definitely a healthy option also. Whatever you choose, banana muffins are not only delicious, but they pretty much take up no time at all. They are great to make all in one go, say on a Sunday night and take them to work during the week, not just as a vegan breakfast, but as a vegan snack to munch on during the day.
This recipe is going to give you 12 muffins. If you want to make more, double all the ingredients of the recipe.

For the Blender
- 250 ml of plant based milk (you can try to adapt it and use any cruelty-free vegan milk)

2. Add two teaspoons of vanilla extract and one teaspoon of white vinegar.

7. Mix all the ingredients together, until the consistency looks like this.
8. Spread the mixture evenly until you have 12 muffins.
