If you're a fan of Ben & Jerry's Chunky Monkey ice cream, you'll love these vegan banana chocolate chip muffins! Banana muffins are one of the best baked goods to make vegan, since bananas are a natural egg substitute + make these muffins moist and fluffy! Perfect for a quick breakfast or on-the-go snack.
Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a muffin baking tray with muffin wrappers; set aside. Note: I found that this batch made 15-18 muffins, depending on the size of the bananas. Having two pans is a good idea!
In a medium mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Slowly stir in oil, almond milk, and vanilla, followed by the mashed bananas and blend with electric beaters. Make sure the mixture in combined well, with no clumps before adding in remaining ingredients. When your batter is smooth, stir in chopped walnuts and chocolate chips.
Using an ice cream scoop, divide batter equally between muffin cups. Pop into the oven for 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean (being mindful of the chocolate chips, which can throw you off on timing; make sure you are inserting the toothpick in the sponge portion). Let cool before serving.
