These banana marbled muffins are surprisingly tasty. An easy recipe, ideal for children and for those with an allergy to eggs. Because yes, you read that right, this recipe does not include eggs. The dough you’ll get is fluffy and with a perfect moisture.
For those who are not very familiar with the word “marbled”, it’s about muffins or cakes whose dough is half chocolate and half vanilla, where a mixture of both is made to obtain a bicolor dough. Besides of being delicious, they look beautiful.
Remember that on this kind of recipe the ingredients may be adapted to fit your preferences or needs. If you do not like vegetable milk, such as almond or coconut, you can use regular cow’s milk, either low fat or whole. As for the sugar, you may sweeten the dough with Stevia, or you can also use maple syrup, coconut sugar, brown sugar, or just traditional sugar, it’s your choice.
I got my inspiration on this recipe from Isa Chandra, who actually presented a cake, but I transformed it into these tasty banana marbled muffins.
