Banana Bread Muffins


I had 2 very ripe bananas that needed to be used. I can't give THAT much to my baby for baby food, and I don't really like to eat bananas plain. But I LOVE banana bread! I found a recipe on vegweb, and altered it a lot according to the comments. This came out soooo good!!! It is best eaten warm. I made both muffins and bread that I added flax seeds and walnuts to.

And yes, I did take a big ol' bite out of the muffin before I took a pic!

1 3/4 cups flour (I used 1/2 reg 1/2 spelt)
1 cup sugar (you could use even less, it was pretty sweet)
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 very ripe bananas, mashed
1/2 cup vegetable Oil (you can also sub for applesauce)
Ener-G equivalent of 2 or 3 Eggs
1/3 cup soy-buttermilk (add 1/3 teaspoon vinegar)

Directions:

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.

Mix flour, sugar, baking soda and salt in a large mixing bowl.

Mix bananas, oil (or applesauce), and buttermilk in another mixing bowl.

Combine the banana mixture with the large bowl containing dry ingredients, and stir well. Add the Ener-G Egg Replacer in now, and stir.

For muffins: line muffin pan with liners, scoop about 1/2 full, and bake for about 30 mins, or until a toothpick in the middle comes out clean.

For bread: lightly grease bread loaf pan, pour in mixture, and bake for about an 1 1/2 hours- or until a toothpick in the middle comes out clean.

Looks delicious. I have some bananas that will be perfect for bread making when I get home from being out of town in a few days.

Quincy- I used Ener-G for this one, but there are a variety of different replacers to use :-)

Still up for dinner!

That looks so delicious. Even though I'm not a vegan, I might just try your recipe without telling anybody what's in it.
