Vegan Banana Muffins
Yields 6 Giant Muffins
1 cups soy milk (additional quarter cup may be needed)
1/4 cups oil
2 cups whole-wheat flour
1/4–1/2 cup brown sugar (for a sweet muffin, use 1/2 cup or more)
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2-3 ripe bananas, mashed (potato masher works well)
1/2 cup wheat germ
1/2 cup walnuts, rough chopped
Pre-heat oven to 400º. Oil a 6-cup muffin tin. Mix together all ingredients until incorporated. Mixture will be quite thick. Add more soy milk if dry. Do not over mix. Mound the batter into the 6 muffin cups so it stands about an inch or so above each hole in the tin. Place on a cookie sheet (in case there is spillage) and bake for about 40-45 minutes, checking every 15 minutes. If muffins are browning too fast, lower temperature to 375º. Remove muffins and let cool 10-15 minutes before carefully removing and placing on serving platter. Delicious!
