Banana Blueberry Muffins

After the busy holiday season, I took a few days off from baking. My break didn’t last long because Caleb begged me to bake banana muffins for breakfast. I can never say no to his cute little face so I went to the grocery store and bought a bunch of brown bananas. I love that most stores sell overripe bananas at a discount! They can always count on me to buy them! I came home and got busy in the kitchen! I granted Caleb’s wish and made Vegan Banana Blueberry Muffins!

Healthy Vegan Blueberry Muffins

I don’t mind making these muffins for Caleb because they are easy to whip up and they are a healthy-ish breakfast treat. I use whole wheat flour, coconut oil, almond milk, mashed bananas, and blueberries. Caleb has no clue these vegan blueberry muffins are on the healthy side because they taste so good! They are a great breakfast treat for kiddos and adults. I don’t mind making them for Caleb so I can steal one or two:)

Banana Blueberry Muffins for Now and Later

These vegan blueberry muffins freeze beautifully, which is another bonus. We usually eat a few when I pull them out of the oven…it is too hard to resist a fresh, warm muffin. I try to save the rest for the freezer so I can give Caleb a banana blueberry muffin when he asks for one, which is just about every day! To defrost, pop a muffin in the microwave for 30 seconds and you are good to go!

If you are looking for a healthy breakfast treat, give these Vegan Banana Blueberry Muffins a try! They are a favorite at our house.

  1. Being a vegan some muffin recipes can end up a bit stodgy and dry..These are absolutely delicious! By far the best vegan muffins I have made so far -clean ingredients, moist, lovely flavor and soooo Moreish!! This will become a regular in our house.
    Thanks Maria!

  2. OMG, thank you SO MUCH. I’ve been searching for a good vegan banana muffin recipe for some time now, and they always turn out stiff, they don’t rise and they taste really unimpressive. Your recipe was a win since the batter (I almost didn’t put them in the oven)!! My whole family LOVED them, and it only made me happier that they don’t have anything that comes from animals! <3 Regards from Brasil!

  3. We’ve been enjoying these for over a year now.  What a fun way to interact with my homeschooled son.  These provide a perfect healthy treat for our poetry teatimes, too!

    So delicious! I am not convinced of the health properties of coconut oil so substituted with vegetable oil, added a couple Tablespoons of Flaxmeal and an extra 1/2 cup of blueberries. Thank you for a great recipe!

  5. This recipe is a beaut! I wanted to try out coconut flour for the first time.. I swapped 1 cup plain flour for 1/2 a cup coconut flour and it turned out perfectly. What a delicious recipe, thank you 🙂

    He’s muffins were really good snack muffins, they’re not too sweet so you can give them to your kids without feeling guilty. If I was serving them to company I might add a little sugar. My daughter ate 2 immediately.

    Excellent texture and flavour. I did cut the sugar down to 1/3 cup and did not sugar the top. These are so easy to make.

    I used Unbleached All-purpose flour instead, added 4 extra Tbsp. I did bake them a little longer too, about 10 mins. They turned out perfect, moist and fluffy 🙂
