One-bowl recipe. Oil-free. Refined Sugar-free, Vegan. And damn delicious! These muffins are lightly sweetened with maple, packed with applesauce, banana and walnuts, and super easy to make.
These are the ideal breakfast muffins. They are not dessert-for-breakfast muffins, but actual proper, not all that sweet, packed with healthy stuff, muffins. There’s no need to start your day with a boatload of sugar like so many muffins contain, especially when bought from the a store. American muffins are basically cupcakes without the frosting. Nothing to see here folks, just an entire country with a sugar addiction.
These don’t need a lot of sugar because they are naturally sweetened with the super ripe banana and applesauce. Fruits are an excellent sweetener! They’re especially nice when you want a lighter sweetness and are not trying to put yourself into a sugar coma (not to say they’re aren’t moments where that is needed too!).
