Vegan Banana Bread Muffins...

Even my skeptical youngest son LOVED these.  The recipe made 17, and I think he ate a third of them!  This is my favorite Banana Bread recipe, tweaked to be delicious, AND they're dairy and egg-free, for anyone with allergies.

V Banana Bread Muffins

3 overripe bananas
¾ c. sugar (I use white an raw)
Pinch of salt

¼ c. canola oil
½ tbsp. baking powder
¾ tbsp. flaxseed meal (mixed with the water)
3 tbsp. warm water
2 c. flour (I use whole wheat)
Vanilla, cinnamon & pumpkin spice to taste (no more than ½ tbsp. vanilla)

Mash the bananas in a mixing bowl, and blend in the sugar, salt and oil.  Mix the flaxseed with the water, and add to the mixture.  Stir to combine.  Add the flour and baking powder as you continue to stir, along with any spices you wish to add.  Pour into prepared muffin cups, and bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes, until a tester comes out clean in the center of the muffins.

Keep in mind, this was my first attempt using the flaxseed to replace the egg, so I don't know how well it would work as an actual loaf.

If you try it, let me know how it turns out!  And I'd love for you to share...  why do you cook Vegan?  Is it a personal choice, or do you have allergies that match the Vegan lifestyle?  Thanks!
