Banana Blackberry Muffins

Today is the last day of Vegan MoFo 2012, and I'm totally going to miss all of you! If you think you might miss me too, don't fret! You can subscribe to my posts via email just by entering your email address in the box to the right, or you can use the facebook to keep up with the posts.

I have to say I have fully enjoyed myself during this vegan month of food. There have been some great dishes and some awful ones (y'all didn't hear about those, obviously).

Today, I will be doing a double posting one spectacular dish that I totally recommend for dinner tonight, and this one. Banana Blackberry Muffins. These guys are sweet because they have no sugar in them (see what I did there?). I used maple syrup instead, and I just think they turned out real swell.

If you need a quick breakfast for mornings on the go make sure you have some of these stashed away and on hand. They are the bee's knees.
I topped these muffins w/pumpkin & sunflower seeds
and I filled them w/heaven.

3 bananas
1/4 c oil
2 c whole wheat flour
1 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
3/4 c maple syrup
1 carton blackberries
Pumpkin seeds, for garnish
  1. Preheat the oven to 350. 
  2. Mash the bananas and mix with your oil and syrup. 
  3. In a separate bowl mix together flour, salt, and baking soda. 
  4. Combine your dry ingredients with the wet and fold in the blackberries. 
  5. Scoop a few tbsp of batter into muffin tins and give them a sprinkling of pumpkin seeds.
  6. Pop em in the oven and bake for about 20 minutes or so. 

Enjoy w/strong coffee, good company, & great music.


  1. Soooo, I have made these a few times for my BikerManFriend and we are both in love with this recipe. It is the perfect energy booster when on a long ride. I love that you can literally taste the good healthiness that is in each one. I've tried adding almond butter and substituting raspberries for the blackberries. Both experiments were fantastic. Keep 'em comin'!

    1. Holy shit. This makes me so happy. Also, hey do I know you? You looks familiarized?

      I'm trying your subs. Thanks for the recommends.

    2. Totally familiarized actually. I'm friends with your BandMan and such. We may have only met a couple of times though.

      This blog equals foodgasms all around.

    3. any friend of BandMan's is a friend of mine. don't be a stranger.

      food porn tends to lead to foodgasms, and I'm not complaining.

Happy MoFo! I'm excited to be back on my newly revamped, but same old same, mediocre blog for Vegan MoFo 2018. Last year I participated but I participated exclusively on the gram (you can follow me if you feel like it). While I loved the daily prompts, I totally missed sharing the recipes; so I'm glad to be back. 
Quick explanation about the name change (in case you noticed):In previous years, this blog participated in Vegan MoFo as "Vegan4One." There were a lot of reasons why I felt the need to change my blog name but ultimately the main reason was that my recipes were no longer 4One and I found the name misleading to readers. When I originally started this blog back in September of 2009, I was cooking vegan for one person but so much has happened over the years (as it should) and to make that long story short, I'm cooking for more like 6 folks now (2 grown men, 1 teenage boy, myself, and an extra serving for my lunch the next day).

Fried Peach Pasta Salad w/fresh mangoes & blueberries

But for 24,240 hours, you've patiently waited for me while I explored other things like getting married, expanding my reach on Instagram, getting a promotion, going on many tours with my band and recording two amazing (if I do say so myself) albums. And now I'm back for a little while because I missed you and I hope you missed me too.Speaking of missing stuff: ya know how in the Summer heat you can wait for Fall so you can wear your favorite sweater? And in the dead of Winter all you can daydream about how tan you're going to be come Summer? Well, Boise is officially entering the phase of Summer that makes you beg for Fall. With temps over 100 everyday it can be hard to cook, eat, or just function in general.

This quick and cooling salad is a one stop shop for a meal. It's got everything you need for it to be a successful single main dish, but it def works as side dish too.

Look a lot of people are dependent on salt to enhance the flavor of their food but here's the deal - too much salt (like anything else) is not awesome for your body, or your head, or your brain, or your mind (claps for anyone who can guess what movie that loose quote is from). I could go in to a long lecture-speech on the effects of eating too much salt but y'all ain't here for that and google is free. 
When you're ready to reduce your salt intake look for other flavor enhancers to make your meal's best attributes (a.k.a. flavors) P O P ! Like adding a squeeze or two of fresh lemon or lime juice, or your fave type of vinegar if you don't have any fresh lemon or limes; you really can't go wrong with adding fresh minced garlic, ginger, green onions, cilantro, basil, jalapeƱos, like literally any fresh strong flavor will do the trick and do it salt-free. In those times of desperate need get you a lil pump spray bottle and fill it with Braggs Liquid Aminos or co…
