Vegan Banana Cupcakes

Vegan Banana Cupcakes are quick and easy to make. I often add 1/2 cup chocolate chips to the cupcake mixture to make them seem a little decadent and naughty.

This recipe for vegan cupcakes is fool-proof. This Banana Cupcake Recipe uses oil which, when combined with the bananas, keeps the cupcakes really moist. They last for several days but will also freeze really well.

The texture is a bit more like a muffin as it is quite dense.

Although I always add the chopped walnuts, they can be omitted if you don't like walnuts or if someone has a nut allergy.
