Banana Muffins

Vegan Mofo 2010 – Day 11

Wow it’s day 11 and Vegan Mofo is really flying by. I don’t have any fresh food to show because it was a killer of a day and I had to survive on take-outs. So I decided to dig up an old favourite of mine…. banana muffins.

They’re moist and delicious and everyone will love them – and who said baking isn’t easy ?

3 ripe bananas
1/4 cup oil or melted margarine
1 cup sugar
2 cups flour
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
1 cup chopped walnuts (optional—see other options listed below)

• Mash bananas (overripe ones make the best bread). Add oil/margarine and sugar. Mix well.
• Sift the flour, salt, and baking soda together and add to the banana mixture. Mix until the flour is blended (do not beat).
Pour into muffin pans or a bread pan and bake at 360°F (175 C) until a toothpick comes out clean. [Approx 15 minutes]

Optional: Add a handful of walnuts, oatmeal, raisins, chocolate chips, currants, coconut, or all of the above!
