Vegan Cinnamon Banana Crumble Muffins—perfectly sweet and moist, is a great balance between tender and crunchy, and 100% delicious! It takes less than 10 minutes to whip together the batter for these muffins, but it makes for a great healthy alternative for a little sweetness in the morning for breakfast, a midday snack or even for quick dessert.
When it comes to banana bread, in the past, I rarely wanted to eat it. Perhaps it was due to my family’s traditional way of making it (I come from a Jamaican household).
Perhaps it was the ‘plainness” of it. Either way, I just wasn’t a fan of it.
Since making banana bread on my own terms (especially the vegan version), I’ve become addicted! YUM!
I’m not sure if my addiction has anything to do with the fact that they’re moist or the crunch from the crumble, but I’m a new believer in all things Banana Bread!
I can still smell these muffins baking in the oven with a loud aroma of banana and cinnamon, coupling together to create such a captivating smell. Much like this Vegan Cinnamon Crunch Banana Bread.
Oh how I LOVE these little muffins! Honestly, I think that these are the best muffins I’ve ever made!
I guess that’s why I felt inspired to add a nice crunch to these muffins.
I wanted them to as close to my Banana bread as possible AND I must say that adding a crunch to this WORKS PERFECTLY! Speaking of crumble, I did make these Cranberry Orange Crumble Muffins, which are EVERYTHING!
These muffins are moist and tender, with a great orange flavor and burst of cranberries and crunch in every bite. What more can you ask for in one sweet treat?
But if you’re not much of a muffin fan, you can try this Baked Strawberry Banana French Toast Casserole. This the epitome of an evolutionary dish for all the bold flavor lovers!
Of course, I chose to keep things a little more traditional (at least for the most part!) with these Loaded Spinach, Bacon, Egg, + Cheese Sweet Potato Boats.
Packed with a velvety roasted inside of mashed sweet potato tossed in shredded sharp cheddar cheese, topped with spinach, fluffy scrambled eggs, and a bold flavor from the brown sugar bacon; these boats are the perfect way to kick-start your day, meal prep for the week ahead, or even to enjoy for brunch.
Let’s dig right into this recipe, shall we?
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and line a 12-cavity cupcake/muffin pan with parchment liners (or grease it using vegan butter).
In a large bowl, combine the mashed bananas, vegetable oil, and coconut milk together and mix until well combined.
Then stir in both flours, the baking powder, baking soda, organic brown sugar, maple syrup, cinnamon, vanilla extract, and sea salt and mix until well incorporated! **Try not to over-mix!**
Scoop batter in the prepared cupcake/muffin pan (about 1 Tbsp in each) and make the crumble topping!
For the Crumble Topping: Place the organic all-purpose flour, organic brown sugar, chopped pecans and walnuts, and cinnamon in a medium bowl, mixing them together until well combined. Add the partially melted vegan butter and using a spatula, mix until well incorporated.
Now evenly sprinkle the crumble topping atop your batter and place it in the oven. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until a toothpick or knife that is inserted in the middles comes out clean.
Once done, remove muffins from oven and let them cool for a bit (about 10 minutes) before removing them from the cupcake/muffin pan.
