Vegan Banana Oatmeal Muffins

Delicious, not too sweet banana oatmeal muffins are to die for!
Once upon a time, in a kitchen far, far away, two little once yellow green bananas sitting on the counter turning browner and browner, stared at a vegan maker dancing hardcore to The Smiths, wondering if she would stop and bake them into something wonderful and tasty.
It's not just in my imagination.
Sometimes the food really speaks.
So I obliged the fruit by quitting horrible jiving that would never get me on "So You Think You Can Dance" and instead focused my creative talents on baking yummy addictive muffins worth sharing!

1 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup oats
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ginger
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon turmeric
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 ripened bananas at room temperature
2/3 cup unsweetened almond milk (used Almond Breeze brand)
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup toasted walnuts
1/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
2 teaspoon cocoa (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and prepare a muffin tin with baking cups.
Mix all dry ingredients separately.
Cream vanilla, bananas, and almond milk in a blender.
Combine wet with the dry.
Add remaining ingredients.
Pour into cups and bake for 20-25 minutes.

I love these polka dot baking cups! Running quite low on them.
These are super duper moist & rich muffins.
Meant to be enjoyed with almond milk & chick flicks.
Spicy, sultry banana vixens in a muffin cup!
All the taste buds reveal is banana at its creamy finest blended with the best of seasonings, a reminder of the warm autumn breeze as each soft, tender bite of moist, decadent muffin is savored slowly. Gotta love that chewy texture of oats and coconut combined with the crunch of walnuts, and that hearty cinnamon flavor.
Great for an on the go breakfast!
If you want a little spread on top, might I suggest almond butter or a bit of fruit jam?
Though, I highly recommend it strictly naked with a side of dairy free milk! Yummmy!!! :)
Since there were many leftover sweet treats to spare and overcome with a rather joyous disposition after having my desired fill, I placed extra muffins in my trusty "spread the love" wicker basket and handed them out to friends, always happy to bring that unexpected vegan celebration to someone's stomach.
As always, the feedback was positively uplifting!
