Vegan Banoffee Muffins Recipe
Preheat the oven to 180C.
If your bananas are not ripe, bake them in the oven for 10 minutes until they are blackened.
Combine the chia seeds with 100ml in a cup and allow them to bloom for 5 minutes.
Mash the bananas with vegetable oil. Mix in the light bown sugar, plain flour, protein powder, baking powder and chia seed water mix to form a smooth, thick batter.
Rub together the instant oats, dairy-free butter, cinnamon powder and 1 teaspoon of brown sugar to form a crumb.
Line a muffin tin with muffin cases and fill each case up so that it’s ¾ full. Top with a sprinkling of the oat topping. Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes.
Drizzle with maple syrup and serve.
