Vegan Banana Date Muffins Recipe

  • Author: Liv B
  • Total Time: 45 minutes
  • Yield: 12 muffins


These Banana Date Muffins are sweet, fluffy and taken to the next level with a sweet streusel topping. They’re the perfect snack, easy dessert, or vegan breakfast to share over morning coffee. All you need is 10 simple ingredients.


  • 1 cup mashed banana
  • 1/2 cup dates, soaked to soften and mashed until smooth (see note)
  • 1/3 cup melted vegan butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3 tbsp egg replacer (I used JustEgg liquid egg replacer. If using powdered egg replacer or flax egg, do 1 tbsp mixed with 3 tbsp water)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 cups flour 
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1/2 cup dairy-free chocolate chips 

Streusel topping:

  • 1/4 cup vegan butter
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup flour


  1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease or line a 12 cup muffin tin.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine bananas, dates, vegan butter, egg replacement, sugar, cinnamon and vanilla.
  3. Add the flour, baking soda and salt and mix until just combined.
  4. Fold in chocolate chips.
  5. Spoon into prepared muffin cups.
  6. Add streusel topping ingredients to a small mixing bowl. Use your hands to mix together until crumbly. Add on top of muffins.
  7. Bake 25-27 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean and they are golden brown on top. Allow to cool for 5 minutes in the tin and then transfer to a cooling rack.


Soak dates in hot water for 10 minutes to soften. Drain, then use a food processor or potato masher to mash until relatively smooth.
