Vegan Pumpkin Banana Muffins with a Sweet Cinnamon Infusion


Vegan Pumpkin Banana Muffins RecipeThis recipe for vegan pumpkin banana muffins is by my good friend Hannah of Bittersweet. She was a freshman in college when she shared this recipe with us. Now she has many cookbooks under her culinary belt, including Real Food, Really Fast, Vegan à la Mode, Vegan Desserts, and Easy As Vegan Pie.

To make these pumpkin banana muffins special, Hannah uses her homemade maple pumpkin butter instead of plain pumpkin puree. It infuses more pumpkin intensity and a dose of spice.

This is a small batch recipe because Hannah created it while living in the dorms. It makes exactly 6 regular size muffins and 4 mini muffins, or 7 to 8 regular size muffins.
