Banana Walnut Muffins (Vegan)

Banana Walnut Muffins (Vegan)

I am totally enjoying this quiet, cozy Sunday today. I am fully committed to being a very lazy girl today. I made great food, and spent lots of time in bed watching my favorite TV shows. The week was quite busy, and I

needed an uneventful, lazy day like this. Since my last post, a lot has happened. I don’t even know where to begin… As most of you know, I am a classically trained cook. This means, I have always been a big fan of using eggs, dairy, and other animal products in my kitchen.

One of my favorite ingredients has been cheese. Like so many others, I have been a cheeseaholic my entire life.  Despite becoming a vegetarian two years ago, I never understood people, who were turning vegan.To me these guys were nothing but a bunch of weirdos, who are missing out on life.

I just couldn’t understand why anybody would give up heavenly delights such as cheese, eggs and other mouthwatering dairy products. I also considered it quite snobbish to be so picky about the things you eat, if so many people on this planet don’t have anything to eat at all.

But all of this changed last week… One evening, after I got done with work, I decided to give this documentary called “What the health” a try. It was recommended to me by one of my relatives, who is a doctor. I was not prepared for what I was about to see.

In this documentary, American doctors were saying that eating meat, fish, eggs, and dairy is directly responsible for causing cancer, as well as other illnesses like heart disease, and that eating a low carb diet might help you lose weight but can result in strokes, heart attacks, and vascular dementia due to clogged arteries.

They also say that it’s not sugar that is causing diabetes, but meat, dairy, and eggs. They had a large amount of studies backing them up on these statements, Harvard studies being part of them. What struck me the most, was that they say only 10 percent of cancers are related to genes, and 90 percent are related to what we eat.

They even say that if you were dealt a bad genetic deck, you can turn things around by eating a plant based diet. I heard enough. I decided, then and there, to eliminate animal products from my diet. Me, a classically trained, dairy-egg-addicted cook. Not in a million years would I have thought this day would come.

If you’d like to watch the documentary as well, you can find it on Netflix or on . By the way, I was not paid to write any of this. I simply felt the personal need to share this information with you. You probably are wondering “how the heck is she planning to cook delicious, non-complicated, heavenly food if she is a vegan?“

Well I have good news! Cooking vegan does not mean that your food has to taste lame, or that you have to use weird, fake ingredients. Just trust me on this one, and let me prove to you that it is just as simple, and just as delicious to cook this way. Wanna bet? Then try my new delicious banana-walnut muffins.

They don’t taste any different from the ones people went nuts about at my adorable, little café that I owned in the past. Here’s what you’ll need:

163 g (5,8 oz) whole wheat flour

1 tsp baking powder

½ tsp salt

70 g (2,5 oz) white sugar

28 g (1 oz) sunflower oil

3 medium sized, overly ripe bananas

35 g (1,2 oz) walnuts, chopped

Preheat your oven to 175 degrees Celsius (345 degrees Fahrenheit). If you are not using a convection oven raise the temperature about 20 degrees Celsius (70 degrees Fahrenheit.) Combine all dry ingredients in a bowl. Then cut your very ripe bananas in small chunks, and add them to your dry ingredients. At the same time, add the oil.

Please note: It is important that you use overly ripe bananas, otherwise your muffins won’t be sweet enough, and will be lacking the wonderful banana flavor. Now mix the dough using your hands. Do so until a nice batter has formed, and the bananas are mashed, and well incorporated. Don’t overmix your batter, since this results in tough muffins.

Now fold in the chopped nuts. Fill your batter into the muffin molds, which you lined with muffin papers earlier. Make sure to fill them almost to the top (but leave a little room at the top). Then bake them for about 10 minutes, or until the toothpick comes out clean. Make sure not to overbake them, otherwise they’ll be dry. Once done, remove them from their pan, and let them cool down. They taste best at room temperature. Enjoy:-)

Love, Peppa.
