Light, fluffy and delicious Egg Free Banana Muffins that will satisfy any muffin craving. This recipe for eggless banana muffins can be adapted to suit common food allergies - egg free, dairy free, gluten free, and low sugar. Or make these muffins without eggs if you are caught without eggs for your usual recipe.
Preheat oven to 350°F / 175°C. Line or lightly grease a standard 12-hole muffin tin.
In a medium bowl, mix together the mashed bananas, milk, cooking oil, vanilla extract and brown sugar. You can mix this by hand, or use a hand mixer on low speed. I usually use a hand mixer since I find that it quickly will mash/puree a ripe banana.
In a separate large bowl, whisk together the flour, oats, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt.
Add the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix together until just combined. Stir in the vinegar.
Divide batter evenly among the muffin cups. Top the muffins with the oats and turbinado sugar.
Bake muffins, rotating pan halfway through, until a tester inserted into the center comes out clean, 25–30 minutes. Transfer pan to a wire rack and let muffins cool in pan 5 minutes. Transfer muffins onto a rack and let cool completely.
Store in an airtight container for 2 days.Dairy-Free muffins: You can replace the milk with a milk alternative of your choice. As my son is also intolerant to dairy, we use Oatly Oat Milk, and have had great success baking and cooking with Oatly.Gluten-Free muffins: You can use gluten free flour and gluten free oats. My favorite gluten free baking flour is Bobs Red Mill Gluten-Free 1-to-1 Baking Flour.Low sugar muffins: You can use anywhere between ¼ cup - 1 cup sugar for this recipe. I don't like too much added sugar in our diet, particularly when I'm making these muffins for my toddler, so I typically make these muffins with ¼ cup sugar, and sometimes even less. Instead, try using a ripe banana for natural sugars and flavor. However, if I'm bringing these to a potluck, or sharing it with friends, to make the recipe taste more like a sweet muffin you might get at a coffee shop, I would recommend using up to the full 1 cup of sugar.
