Banana chocolate chip muffins

Banana chocolate chip muffins

I made these muffins two days ago, and have been walking around in a happy little fog since then because these little vegan morsels of yumminess are so incredibly AWESOME.

Light and tender, moist and chocolately, what more could you want in a muffin? If I had a cafe, these would be on the menu every freakin’ morning.

I adapted a recipe found here. I cut the sugar to 2/3 cup, and they were still really sweet, so next time I’ll cut it to 1/2 cup.

British       American
210g   plain (all-purpose) flour   1-3/4 cups
145g   sugar (or less)   2/3 cup
1 teaspoon   baking powder   1 teaspoon
1 teaspoon   baking soda   1 teaspoon
1/2 teaspoon   salt   1/2 teaspoon
    vegan powdered egg replacer equal to 1 egg    
125ml   soya yogurt   1/2 cup
125ml   mild vegetable oil   1/2 cup
1 teaspoon   vanilla extract   1 teaspoon
230g   mashed ripe banana (about 3 small)   1 cup
120g   vegan chocolate chips   3/4 cup

1. Preheat oven to 200C (400F). Grease a muffin tin, or use muffin liners.

2. In a large mixing bowl, stir together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt until well mixed. Set aside.

3. In a medium mixing bowl, add water to the powdered egg replacer according to the package directions for the equivalent of one egg. Whisk mixture together until foamy. Put the yogurt, oil and vanilla into a measuring cup and whisk with a fork until emulsified. Then whisk yogurt mixture into egg replacer until well blended.

4. Gently fold wet mixture into dry, just until evenly mixed. Do not overmix. Fold in mashed bananas and chocolate chips.

5. Spoon into prepared muffin tin.

6. Bake for 22 to 25 minutes, rotating tin halfway through, until a toothpick inserted in the centre of a muffin comes out clean. Cool five minutes in pan before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.

Makes 12 incredible muffins.


  1. wow I just discovered your site and LOVE it!! wonderful work you are doing and delicious looking recipes 😉 as a vegan of 10 years it is easy to get lazy in the kitchen-but I’m inspired now!
    I’m a fellow Canadian looking to move to the UK (my mother’s a Brit) I was wondering if I could email you with some questions?

  4. I love this combo..there’s a similar recipe in the Joy of Vegan Baking. But I gotta save it for special events (aka any little excuse I can make up) cause I cannot stop eating them! So delicious!

  5. oooh… I now know what to do w/ the always present surplus of bananas we have. I buy some, andy then buys some, and they add up. you can only drink just so many smoothies, ya know 🙂
