Banana Walnut Mini Muffins. (Almost) Classic. Vegan.

Maybe you've noticed, but I've been on a bit of an obsessive muffin blitz lately. I can't help it! That cool fall air hits my face, a crisp drizzly rain prances across the soggy streets and all I want is a fresh-from-the-oven muffin. That muffins-baking-aroma that warms the whole house isn't a bad side effect either.

Black-Spots Inspired. A fruit bowl full of black-spotted ripe bananas is all I need to inspire me into a banana bread baking mood. And since I didn't mind the thought of making the house smell like fresh baked banana muffins this past Sunday morning, I whipped up a batch of (Almost) Classic Banana Walnut mini muffins. They are bursting with organic banana flavor and have tender chunks of raw walnuts sprinkled throughout. For brunch, I paired these mini muffins with a fresh pressed organic fuji apple-ginger juice. What a delicious way to soak in a Sunday morning. Get my recipe...
