I made these Vegan Banana Walnut Muffins at least twice before posting the recipe.
The first time, they were really good but I forgot to add the walnuts…in a recipe called “Banana Walnut Muffins”.
These usually make their appearance when I have bought too many bananas that we can’t eat fast enough so it’s a good recipe to use when you need a “my bananas are getting ready to go bad” recipe.
Store-bought muffins have a long list of unhealthy ingredients:

Where to Buy: If you have trouble finding any of the ingredients to make this recipe, you can order online from Amazon and have them delivered straight to your door:
Tip #1: I reduced the sugar from the original recipe down to 1/2 cup. You may want to taste the batter before pouring them into your muffin cups to see if you need to adjust the amount of sugar.
Tip #2: I increased the amount of walnuts from 3/4 cup to 1 cup because I really like the crunch of the walnuts in my muffins. You can also adjust this amount to your preference.
