Vegan Carrot and Banana Muffins

Banana and Carrot Vegan Muffins

For this post, I am grateful for the vegan blogging community I’ve met through this blog and how much I’ve learned about vegan cooking and baking since starting this blog. I’ve been so impressed by the amazing and delicious egg and dairy free recipes I’ve come across. I’m only starting to experiment with vegan baking, but I’m looking forward to trying some new things, like making cashew cream and coconut whipped cream.

These vegan muffins use flax seed and banana as binders. They are tasty and healthy, the perfect breakfast or snack.
