Vegan Banana Carrot Muffins

As a kid I always loved baking and helping out in the kitchen, and I'm so happy that our son Levi feels the same way. As soon as he found out I was making muffins he wanted to help out! Since we had a whole bunch of old bananas in the freezer that needed to be used, I looked up vegan recipes that had lots of bananas but were more than just a banana muffin (as much as I like banana muffins, we were in need of a change). I came across this amazing recipe.

As much as we can, we try to buy organic. I was happy to find these organic oats at Provigo.

We pretty much followed the recipe, only changing the Whole Wheat Flour for organic Kamut (I find it a bit lighter), and replaced the Almond Milk with a sample of Coconut Milk I had been given from So Delicious at the Wanderlust Festival. They turned out moist and delicious!

Levi waited patiently to lick the spoon after we finished filling the muffin tray.

Vegan Banana Carrot Muffins.

1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder pinch of salt
1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 cup light brown sugar
3 medium bananas, mashed
1/2 cup carrots, grated
1/2 cup almond milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup rolled oats

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

In a large bowl, mash the bananas until only a few chunks remain. Add the vanilla and almond milk and mix with a fork. Whisk in the brown sugar until no clumps remain.

In a medium bowl, sift the dry ingredients. Fold into the banana mixture about half a cup at a time.

Add the oats and grated carrots, lightly folding until fully incorporated. 

Put batter into muffin tins or ramekins, filling only about 3/4 of the way.

Bake for about 30 minutes, or until a fork comes out clean.
