Recipe: Vegan Banana Crumb Muffins


For the Muffins:
  • 2 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/4 cup almond milk (or any unsweetened plant-based milk)
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
For the Crumb Topping:
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons vegan butter or coconut oil, melted


Making the Muffins:
  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Line a muffin tin with paper liners or lightly grease it.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the mashed bananas, unsweetened applesauce, almond milk, apple cider vinegar, and vanilla extract. Mix well.
  3. In another bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt.
  4. Pour the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and stir until just combined. Be careful not to overmix; a few lumps are okay.
Creating the Crumb Topping:
  1. In a small bowl, combine the flour, granulated sugar, and melted vegan butter or coconut oil. Mix until it forms a crumbly texture.
Assembling and Baking:
  1. Fill each muffin cup about two-thirds full with the muffin batter.
  2. Sprinkle the crumb topping evenly over the muffin batter in each cup.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 18-20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean.
Cooling and Serving:
  1. Remove the muffins from the oven and let them cool in the muffin tin for a few minutes. Then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.
