These fluffy vegan banana bread muffins are also gluten-free, require just 10 ingredients, and are so easy to make. They are the perfect bite-sized healthy snack, breakfast, or dessert.


  • 3 over ripe bananas
  • 2 tablespoons ground flax seeds + 6 tablespoons water (sub chia seeds)
  • 2 cups rolled oats, blended into a fine flour *
  • 1/2 cup dairy-free milk
  • 1/4 cup sugar (I used cane sugar)
  • 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar (sub lemon juice)
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  1. Preheat the oven to 425 F.
  2. In a small bowl, mix the ground flax seeds with water to make a flax egg. Let sit about 8–10 minutes to thicken. Set aside.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, mash your bananas really well with a fork.
  4. Whisk flax egg, non-dairy milk, apple cider vinegar, sugar, cinnamon, vanilla extract, and salt into the mashed bananas.
  5. Then whisk in the oat flour, baking powder, and baking soda until well-incorporated.
  6. Line a standard muffin tin with paper cupcake wrappers, parchment paper, or use a reusable silicone muffin tin. Pour the batter into your muffin tin, filling almost all the way to the top.
  7. Bake at 425 F for 5 minutes, then reduce the temperature to 350 F and bake 18-20 minutes until a toothpick inserted into the middle of the muffin comes out clean.
  8. Let cool for at least 5 minutes in the muffin tin, then transfer the muffins to a cooling rack to cool completely.
  9. These banana bread muffins last 5 days stored in an air-tight container at room temperature. Keep in the freezer up to a month!


* If you don’t want to make oat flour, you can sub 2 cups of all-purpose flour.
