Banana Muffins With Home-Made Vegan Nutella Frosting

Healthy, sweet and soft vegan muffins perfect for a guilt-free dessert!

    • Vegan Nutella Frosting



    These banana muffins are incredible! So easy to make, but so tender and most importantly completely guilt-free! Why? Because they are sugar-free, just the sweetness of bananas, orange juice and a few teaspoons of maple syrup only in the frosting on top of the banana muffins (which is optional), gluten-free like all the recipes in my blog and, oil-free and of course, vegan!

    I always wanted to be able to make muffins out of simple ingredients, which I have in my pantry because not everybody has the time to rush into a grocery store just for making one dessert! I always keep gluten-free oats, raw almonds, nut butter and some ground psyllium husk in my kitchen not only for baking sweets but simply for morning porridge, nut milks, smoothies, etc.

    How to make the muffins tender without oil and white flour?

    • I always try to skip the oil, where it is possible. Oils should be either not used at all or in moderation, according to Dr. Gregor and other vegan health community, as it is not a whole food, but very concentrated squeezed fat product. That is why in these banana muffins I used the same hazelnut butter as in the frosting to make the consistency creamy and tender. Hazelnut buttes tend to be quite liquid, therefore it was very easy to substitute for any oil. However, you can use any nut butter of your choice, and if it is too think, just add a few drops of nut milk or hot water in it.
    • Bananas are an important ingredient not only for the sweetness but for the soft and creamy texture! Use very ripe bananas as they are the softest and the sweetest!
    • Freshly squeezed orange juice adds that softness, citrusy flavor, and natural sweetness.

    Gluten-Free BananIa Muffin Base

    • In these banana muffins, I solely used quick oats, ground almonds, baking powder and some ground psyllium husk mixed with water (so-called vegan egg). The quick type of oats is pretty small and tender already, I did not grind them into flour. However, if you are using classic old-fashioned rolled oats, you can grind them up a little bit to get a smoother texture for the muffins. If you are not sure, which oats you have, check out this link to help you navigate in oat types.
    • My favorite egg substitute in sweet and savory baking is a psyllium egg because, in my opinion, it works the best! Even better than actual eggs! It helps to stick everything. It is also very easy to make and just combine the ground psyllium husk with water 1:3 or if you let it stay longe 1:5 ratio and add into the muffin mixture!

    Vegan Nutella Frosting

    This frosting is my favorite part as it is so easy to make and so chocolaty! All we need is only 3 ingredients- hazelnut butter, cacao powder and a little bit of maple syrup. Read the exact measurements in the recipe steps. Just mix it all up and the frosting is ready to spread on the banana muffins!

    Add slices of fresh banana on top and sprinkle with ground cinnamon to add the banana muffins a pretty finish!

    Make the Psyllium Egg

    In a small bowl mix 2 tsp. of psyllium husk powder with 6 tbsp of water. That would make approximately 2 vegan eggs.


    Prepare the dry Ingredients in the blender

    1. Add raw almonds to grinder, blender or a food processor and grind them into poppy seed size.
    2. Grind the oats if you are using old-fashioned big oats, if you use the quick ones - leave them whole and add to the food processor along with the ground almonds.
    3. Add baking powder, cinnamon, and poppy seeds to the blender.


    Add wet ingredients

    4. Add peeled bananas and until it looks mushed;
    5. Add psyllium husk "egg", orange juice and hazelnut butter to the rest of the ingredients in the blender and blend until well combined.


    Preheat the Oven to 160C (320F)

    1. Get the muffin tray, lay 10-12 muffin paper cases in it;
    2. Pour the mixture into the paper cases and bake for 30 minutes in the oven;
    3. When the 30 minutes are over, turn off the oven and let the muffins stay in the tray for another 5 minutes, then take the tray out and cool down the muffins completely! It is very important to wait for enough until the muffins are room temperature to be able to easily remove them from the paper cases!!!
