These delicious Raspberry Banana Muffins are:

- Healthy dessert
What are the main ingredients for Vegan Raspberry Banana Muffins?
Soy milk – You can use any other plant-based milk as well.
Oat flour – You can choose other different healthier flour such as buckwheat, rice, etc. You can try to mix them and create a new delicious taste.
Very ripe bananas – Ripe bananas are one of the most popular ingredients of healthy dessert, and this is the best option how to use overripe bananas not throwing out. Try to use very ripe brown bananas, they will give a naturally sweet taste and be easy to mash.
Agave syrup – You can choose any other healthy sweetener of your choice. I prefer honey, agave syrup, and coconut sugar.
Coconut oil – The main ingredient to make the muffins moist. Coconut oil has to be melted before use.
Raspberries – I used frozen raspberries, it could be a bit more difficult and takes time to unfreeze them, but if you have fresh raspberries, then perfect, use them.
A few tips to make them super delicious:
- You can add a sprinkle of cinnamon or shredded coconut to make them spicy or with exotic taste.
- Do not mash the raspberries and if you unfreeze them, reduce the juice and only add the berry part to the batter to avoid color them blue.
- Do not overmix the batter.
How to store the muffins?
Store them in an airtight container at room temperature for 1-2 days, in the fridge for 3 days or you can freeze them up to 1 month.
