Vegan Carob Banana Muffins (Gluten & Dairy-Free)

A late-night sweet tooth and limited ingredients had me determined to make a tasty treat.


I told my fiancé we were out of butter spread, eggs & almond milk so pickings were slim.

Looking in the freezer, I remembered we had some bananas left, so I knew they were the answer!

I used some omega-3 & plant sterol enhanced mayonnaise for the first trial, which turned out well.
They were really good, but I imagined a vegan, whole foods option would be even better.

Frozen bananas are a favorite treat of mine and they come in handy in recipes. Check out my how-to page for more on frozen bananas, including how to peel them.

That is what I’ll share with you.

  3. I never really tried something gluten free, although I know this is the new popular type of foods and bakery goods. It’s a pity that so many people have these days gluten intolerance, when years ago this was almost unheard of.
    Great looking muffins btw, yum!

  4. Great idea to make these muffins from the few ingredients to hand. Unfortunately, I don’t have most of them here in England. But I made some great banana pikelets without flour last week.
