Banana protein mini muffins #vegan

I’ve been playing with baked good recipes to find some new options for desserts/snacks. I’ve discovered a quick and easy, yummy mini muffins. I based the recipe after the William-Sonoma banana bread recipe.

My tweaked recipe:

1 cup pancake mix

2/3 cup plant-based protein powder (vanilla flavor)

3 bananas

splash of vanilla extract

sprinkle of cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves

applesauce or water or oil (to add moisture to the mix)

vegan chocolate chips (as much as you’d like for the ratios of dough to chocolate)
(my fav melty choc chips, found at my local Safeway –>

Pop them in the oven in mini cupcakes tins (spray the tins or put vegan butter on them to keep the muffins from sticking). Oven temp at 350 degrees. Bake until you can stick a knife in the middle of a thick one and it comes out clean. Cool on a rack and try not to eat them all in 10 minutes. (Been there, done that.)

Enjoy!!

Alternatives #reuse #savetheplant

Swap out this for that:

 

  • paper napkin FOR a cloth napkin

    Cut up an old t-shirt or an old towel that’s falling apart, stick it in your lunch box and viola. Super easy! I found out that I really don’t make a giant mess at each meal, so why do I need a new paper napkin at each meal? I ended up using one cloth one for an entire week of lunches. Refolded and used new fresh corners when necessary and washed it with my clothes at the end of the week. Boom. Done.

 

Substitutes #vegan #food

egg =
applesauce
or banana
or oil
or egg replacer powder + water
or tofu

I’m a baker. I’m learning to be a chef with real people foods. But I’ve always been a baker. Honestly, the egg adds a little rise and some liquid. You can solve that many different ways.

greek yogurt =
almond yogurt
or soy yogurt

I attempted to make my own versions of this and failed but there are those that have done this. Otherwise, local grocery store (or Target in this case) for the win!

chocolate =
vegan chocolate

just rediscovered this is a thing and it tastes just as amazing as the real thing. Cacao is the chocolate part, not the added in milk.
