45 mins


  • 3.5 medium bananas mashed
  • 3 tbsp plant-based milk
  • ½ tsp cinnamon powder
  • 2 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 cup spelt flour
  • 1 tsp ground flaxseed
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1/3 cup light brown sugar
  • ½ cup walnut pieces
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • Optional: 90% dark chocolate chips work well in this too.

Step by Step Instructions

Step 1

Preheat fan oven to 160 degrees Celsius.

Step 2

Mash bananas thoroughly so there are no lumps and add the plant milk, cinnamon, vinegar, flour and flaxseed and mix thoroughly.

Step 3

In a small bowl, mix together the salt, sugar, walnuts, baking soda and baking powder.

Step 4

Add the contents of the dry mixture to the wet bowl and combine until evenly mixed, taking care not to over-mix or you’ll get a doughy texture.

Step 5

Lightly grease 8 silicone muffin moulds and add the mixture (it will rise).

Step 6

Bake for between 25-30 minutes. Insert a toothpick into the middle of the muffin and it should come out (almost) completely clean.

Step 7

Let cool before storing in an airtight container for a few days. It makes a delicious breakfast or healthy snack for the office.
