  1. Preheat oven to 400 ° F. Spray a standard-size muffin pan with non-cooking spray, or place parchment muffin holders in the cups.
  2. Pour soy milk into a small bowl or liquid measuring cup. Add lemon juice or vinegar and set it aside for 10 minutes to thicken.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk whole wheat flour, all-purpose flour, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda, nutmeg and salt.
  4. In another bowl, whisk eggs, the thickened soy milk, brown sugar, melted margarine, oil and vanilla.
  5. Make a well in the dry ingredients and stir in the wet ingredients until just combined. Add the bananas and chocolate chips. Stir to just combine; do not overmix. Transfer to prepared pans.
  6. Bake until golden brown and a skewer inserted into the center comes out clean, about 25 minutes.



  • Want to go dairy? Use buttermilk in place of soy milk and leave out the lemon juice or vinegar. Replace butter with margarine.
  • Don't have whole wheat flour? Use all purpose flour instead.
  • Prefer a cake? Pour the batter into a loaf pan and bake in a 375 degree F oven for about 45 minutes.
  • Wondering what to do with overripe bananas? Peel, store in plastic bags and freeze. When baking, slightly thaw by removing bananas from the freezer for a few minutes, then slice and add to the batter.
