Vegan, gluten free, dairy free

 Recipe by Jentry Lee Hull adapted from family recipe and The Minimalist Baker

Yields 12 muffins or 2 small loaves


  • 3 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 3 Tbsp. plant milk
  • 1 tsp. apple cider or white vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp. ground flax meal
  • 6 Tbsp. water
  • 1 Tbsp. melted coconut oil, optional
  • 1 Tbsp. maple syrup or date paste, optional
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 cup almond meal (ground from raw, unsalted almonds)
  • 1 cup oat flour (ground from gluten free rolled oats)
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • ½ tsp. pink salt



  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Line muffin tins with muffin papers or 2 small bread pans with parchment paper.
  • In a large mixing bowl, mash bananas.
  • In a small dish combine plant milk with vinegar. Let sit for a couple minutes then add to mashed banana mixture.
  • In the same small dish (used for the plant milk) whisk together flax meal and water. Let sit for 5 minutes, or until consistency becomes gelatinous ( like a flax “egg”).
  • Incorporate flax egg, coconut oil, maple syrup (if using) and vanilla extract. Mix together until creamy.
  • Incorporate almond meal, oat flour, baking soda and pink salt in with wet ingredients.
  • Using a 1/3 measuring cup, scoop banana bread mixture into muffin cups.
  • Bake for 23-35 minutes at 350, or until muffins are cooked through. Test with a toothpick in the center of a muffin.  If the toothpick comes out clean, remove from oven and let cool for 20-30 minutes.
