Amazing, 10-ingredient vegan banana Nutella muffins sweetened with coconut sugar and made in one bowl! 


  • 1 flax egg (1 tablespoon ground flax mixed with 2.5 tablespoons water)
  • 1 3/4 cups mashed overripe bananas (from 34 bananas)
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/3 cup virgin coconut oil, melted
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1 1/2 cups light spelt flour 
  • 12 heaping teaspoons vegan “Nutella” spread 


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and line a 12-cup muffin tin with paper cups. 
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flax and water to form your flax “egg.” Wait a few minutes, until it thickens. Add the mashed banana, coconut sugar, and melted coconut oil. Whisk to combine. 
  3. Whisk in the baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon, followed by the rolled oats.
  4. Next, whisk in the flour. Mix just until incorporated. 
  5. Add 2 tablespoons of batter to each muffin cup. Top each with 1 heaping teaspoon of “Nutella.” 
  6. Finally, top each with 1 heaping tablespoon of the remaining batter. 
  7. Bake for 22-25 minutes, or until the tops are golden brown. 
  8. Let cool in the muffin tin for a few minutes before removing from the pan and transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. 
  9. Store in an airtight container at room temperature for a few days, or in the fridge for a week. 


Good brands of vegan “Nutella” are Nutiva and Brinkers La Vida Vegan.
