Jessicas Hardcore Banana Nut Muffins

What you need: 

1 cup flour of your choice
1/2 cup oatmeal or wheat germ
1/4 to 1/2 cup Sucanat or sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 Ener-G Egg Replacer [powder goes with dry ingredients, liquid goes with wet ingredients]
3/4 cup soy milk
1/4 cup cooking oil
3 medium-size bananas, mashed
1 handful or so of walnuts, howe'ver much you like
1 Tablespoon or so of cinnamon [optional]

What you do: 

Preheat oven to 400 degrees and grease muffin tins.
Stir together the flour, oats, vegan sugar [adjust the amount depending on how sweet you like muffins], baking powder, walnuts, cinnamon, and the egg-powdery-stuff (if you add the dry), in a big mixing bowl. Be sure to mix the Ener-G Egg Replacer powder really well - otherwise you'll end up with crunchy egg-replacer bits in your muffins. Not cool at all.
In another bowl, peel and slice the bananas. Now mash those suckers with a potato masher or a couple forks. Put in the Ener-G Egg Replacer liquid (if using the liquid instead of the dry), milk and cooking oil, and mix it up. Then dump this stuff into the dry ingredients and stir just until combined, not too long - you know the drill.
Then spoon the stuff into 12 muffin cups about three quarters full. Bake em for about 20 minutes, or until they just start to brown and look done. These ROCK.

So I made them again with the egg replacer and they turned out perfect!  My new favorite recipe!


YUM!  I think next time I'll cook them at a lower temp though.  They burnt a bit and were a bit gooey, but sooooo tasty.  I also didn't use any egg replacer and used 1/4 c of sugar, turned out brilliant!


Made these last night, they smelled awesome in the oven.  Looked very pretty and done in there, but then they deflated (could actually see the steam coming out of them and them going down) once I took them out of the oven.  Thoughts?  And I only used 1/4 cup sucanat and these are very sweet.  Want to try making these again, but wondered about the whole deflation issue...any help would be appreciated!  :-*


This was a really great, simple, easy base recipe. I changed a few things though:

-used 1/4 c. sugar
-used applesauce in place of both the egg replacer and oil
-completely omitted the walnuts (I just didn't have any on hand)
-Added a couple tablespoons of natural peanut butter to the batter, just out of curiousity. It added a nice, very subtle flavor.
-Also, I put a glaze on top of the muffins. I used brown sugar, milk, and cinnamon and heated it up in a double boiler, then dipped the muffins into it.

Really great, versatile recipe!! Be creative with this one!
