Ingredients for one-bowl Vegan Chocolate Banana Muffins

This recipe calls for 11 ingredients that get mixed into just one bowl and transferred to a 6 jumbo muffin pan. You’re going to need:

  • Very ripe bananas: here’s a link on how to ripen bananas fast.
  • Nut milk: I used unsweetened almond milk.
  • Coconut oil
  • Cocoa powder
  • All purpose flour: I prefer unbleached.
  • Light brown sugar: sub for coconut sugar.
  • Baking soda & baking powder.
  • Dark chocolate: roughly chopped. Opt for an unsweetened or 70% cacao chocolate bar.
  • Walnuts or pecans: roughly chopped.


Combine the wet ingredients, add the dry ingredients and fold the chopped chocolate and pecans. Fill muffin liners 3/4 to almost full and bake for 22-25 minutes at 350ºF.

How to store muffins

Store in an air tight container at room temperature for up to 3 days.

  1. Would these work with a GF all purpose flour blend (brown&white rice flour, potato and tapioca starch with xanthan gum)? Or another gf flour like just brown rice flour or oat flour for example? Thanks so much! Look amazing!!
