15 Minute Flourless Choc Chip Banana Muffins

15 Minute Flourless Choc Chip Banana Muffins

I don’t usually toot my own horn, but these are genius! My daughter and husband both love them and I love making them for them. These muffins are not only vegan, but they are also gluten-free and they contain a secret ingredient! They are great as a snack to take away and real winners at family parties and school bake sales.

Top tip: it’s important that the peanut butter is runny/loose (use a brand like Pip & Nut or Manilife as they tend to be runnier than other brands) and the coconut oil is melted, otherwise the mixture will become dense and rock-solid… not the muff we are looking for here!

Did you know that V30 is run by a charity?

We create vital resources to help educate everyone – vegan veterans, novices and the v-curious alike – about vegan food, health and nutrition; as well as the plight of farmed animals and the devastating environmental impact of farming.

Through this work we have helped thousands of people discover veganism; but we want to reach millions more! We rely entirely on donations as we don’t get any government funding. If you already support us, thank you from the bottom of our hearts, you are really making a difference! Please share our details with your friends and loved ones too, as every donation enables us to keep fighting for change.
