Good Morning Muffins

I have a crazy week ahead of me. Not as crazy as last week, but crazy none the less. In an attempt to make it less crazy, today I made banana corn muffins that I could have for an easy breakfast this week.

The original recipe called for apple sauce, but I had some bananas that needed to be used to that was my first substitution, also I used maple syrup instead of agave, again because I didn’t have agave and added some dried cherries and walnuts that I had around and used less oil then the recipe called for.

I ended up cooking them for an extra 7 minutes, but that’s standard with the stove in my apartment.

Over all they came out quite nice, much less dense than other vegan baking I’ve experimented with, not overly sweet like a store bought muffin, though i think they might be bland if I had not added the cherries and nuts.

Ingredients for 12 muffins:

  • 1 cup cornmeal
  • 1 cup whole-wheat pastry flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup mashed ripe bananas
  • 1 cup soy milk
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup canola oil (actually used less)
  • 1 cup dried cherries
  • 1 cup walnuts

Pre-heat Oven to 325. gearse a muffin tin.
Combine all dry ingredients, then add wet. Stir until combined.

Transfer to muffin tin and bake for 25 minutes (original recipe said 15-20, but my oven tends to wary on the slow side)

Successful experiment!
