Feel free to add in other ingredients to dress up your muffins; blueberries, dairy-free chocolate chips, walnuts or other nuts, dried fruit, or shredded coconut are all tasty additions to any banana muffin. And if you want to make your morning meal a little extra special, try whipping up a deliciously dairy-free and gluten-free cashew butterpumpkin butter, or vegan lemon curd.
