almost-vegan banana muffins

almost vegan banana muffinsSo last night, I randomly read that February 23 is National Banana Bread Day. I had also come across a simple and yummy recipe for banana bread a week ago on the Instagram page of a delightfully named vegan food blog called Where’s The Beet?

It seemed like fate, plus I’d been looking for a way to use up the overripe bananas taking up space in my freezer.

Since I don’t currently have a loaf pan, I made muffins instead. I’m calling them “almost-vegan” because I cheated a bit and added some milk at the end, as the batter was a bit dry.

Overall, a great go-to muffin recipe which doesn’t require butter or eggs if you happen to be out of those, but have tons of otherwise useless overripe bananas on hand!

Happy National Banana Bread Muffin Day!
