Marbled banana muffins with vanilla icing


My friend was coming over so I wanted to make something fast with the ingredients that I had in my cupboard. So, I came up with these marbled banana muffins with vanilla icing.

I realize now that the marbled aspect was kind of lost with the icing, but who cares! I added one picture of the muffins without it, so you see what I mean. This recipe would work pefectly as a marbled banana bread too (obviously, as the recipe is inspired by this one!).


3 bananas, mashed
2 dl of granulated sugar
2 tsps vanilla sugar
0,5 dl sunflower oil
1 dl oat milk
3 dl plain flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt

3 tbls cocoa powder

Mash the bananas well and add all ingredients except the cocoa powder. Once your batter is smooth, separate one third of it into another bowl. In a cup, mix cocoa powder with a little bit of water, just so that it has a liquid consistency. Add this mix to the smaller amount of batter and mix together very well.

It is best if you are using a muffin tin for this recipe instead of paper cups, because the next step is to make the muffins marbled. First, fill the muffin slot half way full with the banana batter, and then add a little bit of the chocolate batter and mix vigorously with a spoon or knife. Repeate this with all the muffins! Bake in 180C for about 20 minutes.


For the icing, you’ll need

2-3 dl icing sugar
50 g vegetarian margarine
little bit of  oat milk
little bit of vanilla essence (or  2 tsp vanilla sugar)

Mix everything with a fork until smooth and spread over the muffins. I didn’t have time to do anything fancy but I think they look alright!
