Banana Bread Muffins

What you need: 

1 cup sugar
3 bananas
1/2 cup Earth Balance margarine
egg substitute for 3 eggs (I used Ener-G Egg Replacer)
2 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon water or juice
sugar for sprinkling

What you do: 

For some reason I always seem to buy more bananas than I can eat before they go really soft. This recipe is a great way to use bananas that have kind of lost their raw eating appeal.
Put bananas in a bowl and mash, mash, mash. This works best, obviously, if they are really ripe. Add vegan sugar, Earth Balance, egg replacer and water/juice. Mix well. Add dry ingredients and mix just to combine.
Pour into greased muffin cups, sprinkle with vegan sugar and bake at 350 for 10-15 minutes.
Also, you can freeze this batter.

I added blueberries to it the recipe and now I can't stop eating them.
It did take a little over 20 minutes to cook though
great simple recipe though 


After a few alterations, these turned out fantasticly well.  First, I reduced the sugar to 1/2 of a cup, and they were still delightfully sweet.  Second, I added vanilla and almond flavoring (for a light flavor, 1/2 teaspoon of each should do the trick).  Third, I increased the number of bananas to four--mainly because I had four, and I didn't want to waste the leftover one. 

I don't know if it is neccessary to add egg replacer for 3 eggs.  Banana is an egg replacer in itself... and the batter was almost too sticky with 3 Energ-egg eggs.  Next time I will use less, if any, and I will update as to how that goes.

But the real point here is... there will definitely be a next time!  The texture of these muffins is absolutely perfect.  I also appreciate the simple recipe, because it is conducive to all sorts of flavor additions.


These are super duper good!  I added some chocolate chips to them & brought them to work.  They didn't last long at all and I received many, many comments about how good they were.  Thanks for sharing!
