Maple banana walnut oatmeal muffins



Muffins are one of my favourite things to bake. I always have a batch ready to go for breakfast or snacks during the week. This is the same recipe as my pear and pepita muffins from last Fall, with just a few adjustments. Maple syrup gives these a delicate sweetness that is so incredibly complimentary to the rich and toasty walnuts. They're so delicious that you'd never guess they're vegan, gluten free, and oil free! I hope you love this recipe as much as I do.


This recipe is vegan, gluten free, and refined sugar free.
