This recipe takes traditional bran muffins up a notch! These Vegan Blueberry Banana Bran Muffins are oil free and supremely delicious!
I’m just going to come right out and say it – I think bran muffins will always be a guilty pleasure for me. I am usually a chocolate fiend, but I find that “healthy” flavour of bran to be so satisfying. I may or may not be partial to bran muffins when given a choice. They’re just so dang good!
Especially these ones! These are are a bit of a spin on my Vegan Cranberry Flax Muffins. Instead of cranberries, these are studded with dried blueberries and the oil is replaced with mashed banana! They’re like mini banana bread-blueberry-bran-muffin hybrids! The hearty bran and whole wheat flour make these a healthier muffin choice. No oil makes them even healthier. On top of all the fiber in these muffins, they are also loaded with flax, so we’ve got a nice dose of omega-3 fats as well! Whoop whoop.
I love a couple of these as a midday pick me up snack. The sweetness of the blueberries satisfies the sweet tooth and the heartiness of the muffin fills me up. But hey, I love these as a dessert option too – who says ‘healthy’ muffins can’t be dessert!
