Vegan Banana Muffins

Vegan Banana Muffins – Warm muffins jam-packed with fresh bananas and perfect for breakfast or even a midday snack! Plus, they are vegan!

Well, I am officially snowed into my apartment for the first time this year! I was not able to get my car out to go get groceries so I had to improvise and make muffins for breakfast this morning and these muffins were the result! I am not vegan but I have this thing against using eggs in baking unless I really have and flat out refuse to eat omelettes and such so I tend to bake vegan foods and they are still always so delicious!

I actually was trying to make cranberry banana muffins since I have 1/2 a bag of cranberries in the freezer but these didn’t turn out very pretty as the color bled a bit into the muffin and they had been placed on top in a pattern but hey, they were tasty so feel free to try adding 1/2 cup to the batter! I might end up making another batch in a day or two with more cranberries because they were so good! And I love the fact that they are pretty healthy!
