Vegan Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins Recipe
By Earth of Maria
🔪Prep Time: 10 mins
👩🍳Cook Time: 30 mins
2 tbsp ground flaxseed
1/4 cup water
1 cup rice flour
1/2 cup chickpea flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp xanthan gum
1/3 cup olive oil
1 cup mashed banana
1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup maple syrup
1 cup vegan chocolate chips
1Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C/350 F and line a muffin tray with muffin cases. Alternatively, you can grease it lightly with vegan butter.
2Prepare flax eggs by stirring together ground flaxseed with the water, and setting aside for 5-10 minutes.
3In a large mixing bowl, stir together the rice flour, chickpea flour, baking powder, baking soda and xanthan gum.
4In a separate mixing bowl, mix together the olive oil, mashed banana, apple cider vinegar, maple syrup, and the flax eggs.
5Add the wet ingredients to the dry, and mix together until evenly combined. Add the chocolate chips and mix once more.
6Distribute the batter evenly between the muffin cases, filling them about 3/4 of the way. Bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean from the centre.

I’ve never been good at introductions because when they’re needed, I seem to forget every single interesting thing about myself. But I guess we’ll start with the basics. My name is Maria, and I am a twenty year old student from England. I study history at the University of Oxford and live in Brighton, but I was born in Russia and moved to the UK around ten years ago. I’m a vegan foodie (as you can probably tell by this blog), a lover of long walks and somewhere awkwardly between extrovert and introvert. Veganism and healthy eating are a huge part of my life, given that both have helped me overcome an unhealthy relationship with food. Finding balance took a lot of time and patience. But, as with many things in life, hard work proved 110% worth it! Whenever I’m not in the kitchen or working in my room, you’ll often find me at the gym, or at the grocery store looking for inspo for my next recipe.
