  • 3 brown bananas
  • ½ cup unsweetened applesauce
  • ¼ cup maple syrup or agave
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/c cup brown sugar
  • 1 ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp cinnamon

  4. Add the flour, baking soda, oats, cinnamon, chocolate chips and walnuts to the mixture.
  5. Gently mix until all ingredients are incorporated together.
  6. Line a muffin tray with baking cups or spay the tray with non-stick spray.
  7. Pour the batter into each well. They should be filled almost to the top.

  9. Let cool for 10-15 minutes and enjoy!


  • In order to achieve the best banana flavor, use those super brown almost rotten bananas.
  • You can also use regular chocolate chips if you’re not vegan.
  • Omit the walnuts for a nut-free muffin.
  • Use baking cups instead of non-stick oil to keep this recipe oil free.
