  • 1 1/2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 2 cups bananas - possibly 2 mashed
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup dairy free butter melted
  • 1/4 cup almond milk
  • 1 egg replacer
  • 1/2 cup macadamia nuts chopped for the inside of the batter
  • 1/2 cup macadamia nuts chopped to sprinkle on the top of the muffins


  • Lightly grease 12 muffin tins or use muffin cup liners.
  • Mix the egg replacer according to your package directions. Set aside.
  • Combine the flour, baking soda, salt and nutmeg.
  • Mash the banana and combine with the sugars, vegan butter, almond milk and prepared egg replacer.
  • Fold in 1/2 cup of the macadamia nuts.
  • Divide evenly among the 12 muffin tins.
  • Sprinkle the remainder of the macadamia nuts over the tops of the muffin batter in the tins.
  • Bake at 350• for 25 minutes.
  • When done baking let set 5 minutes then transfer to a rack to cool completely.


After they have cooled you may freeze them in any of the methods shown in my article Preparing Food for the Freezer .
They defrost quickly so it really doesn't take any planning. The microwave will also zap them in 20 seconds.
