Vegan Double Chocolate Banana Blender Muffins- made with whole grain oats and naturally sweetened, no one would ever guess these fluffy muffins are gluten-free, oil-free and vegan!
I’ve been slowly working my way through veganizing all of the versions of my blender muffins and these double chocolate banana muffins were second on my list. If you’ve tried the original recipe then you know how good they are. Fluffy and perfectly moist. They’re like eating chocolate cake for breakfast!
I realize it might seem easy to just sub regular eggs with flax eggs but I’ve found when it comes my flourless muffin recipes that trick just doesn’t work the same. They turn out overly dense and gummy which is because real eggs provide a lot more lift than flax eggs. That said, apple cider vinegar plus a combination of baking soda and baking powder produces a decent amount of air that allows for an extra fluffy texture. Beyond that change, the liquid amounts also have to be tweaked to get them just right. So it’s not always as simple as you might think.
