Vegan Banana Muffins

Last week when I was sick, my mom was awesome (as she always is) and waited on me the entire time. She made these vegan banana muffins for breakfast and I thought I would share the recipe with you. These are made with no dairy or eggs, and the banana is used to bind the ingredients together. My mother made them plain, but adding cinnamon or chopped walnuts make for a yummy twist on the recipe.
Vegan Banana Muffins

3 browned (ripe) bananas
1/4 cup oil or vegan margarine, softened
1 cup sugar
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
1 tsp cinnamon (optional)
  1. Pre-heat oven to 360 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl, mash the bananas with a fork till soft. Add the oil or vegan margarine and sugar and cream together.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine together the flour, salt, and baking soda. Combine with the banana mixture, stirring gently just to combine.
  4. Grease or line a muffin pan, and fill each muffin about 2/3 full with batter. Bake for about 25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into a muffin comes out clean. 
*We use Earth Balance brand vegan margarine, which can be found at WalMart.
