The BEST Vegan Protein Banana Muffins: fluffy, satisfying and incredibly delicious. They’re the perfect healthy breakfast or snack that comes together easily in 1 bowl in under 30 minutes. Made with just 7 simple ingredients and they’re low in sugar, gluten free and oil free.




  1. Pre-heat oven to 425 F (220 C)
  2. Add mashed banana, coconut sugar, 3 tbsp non-dairy milk, vanilla and cinnamon into a large bowl and whisk until combined. Add in the flour, vegan protein powder, baking powder and baking soda. Use a spatula and mix until a thick batter forms. If the batter looks too thick, add an extra tbsp of non-dairy milk (refer to video/photos). 
  3. Divide the batter into 8 muffin tins. Bake for 5 minutes and then reduce the temperature to 350 F and bake for another 15-20 minutes or until cooked through. Check doneness by inserting a toothpick in the centre of one of the muffins, it should come out clean. 
  4. Remove from oven and let it cool in the pan for 5 minutes. Carefully transfer to a cooling rack and allow the muffins to cool for another 10 minutes before eating. 


  • *If using neutral protein, add in an additional 1-2 tbsp of coconut sugar for sweetness. See notes in blogpost for the protein powders I have tested these muffins with success. 
  • Storage: Keep at room temperature in a container for 2-3 days. Freeze muffins in an air tight container for up to 1 month. To reheat, thaw at room temperature with a lightly damp paper towel over it. Microwave for 20 seconds on high with lightly damp paper towel wrapped around the muffin.
