These banana peel vegan muffins are moist, lightly sweetened with maple syrup and accented with dark chocolate. This is an intriguing recipe to surprise your friends with and offer up seconds as they ask, “With banana peels, really?” If you need something to do with those extra bananas you can go into a baking frenzy with these almond pulp cookies. This was a fun one to test out so let us know if you give it a try! #closedloopcooking

I am totally surprised by this post. I would never, ever have thought to use the banana peel as an ingredient!
I was surprised as well! And they turned out so tasty 😀
I can’t believe you can use banana peels! I’ve wasted so much…
Most people don’t even think of the peels as a real ingredient, definitely worth trying!
I have had a couple friends make things with banana peels lately, and while I am still skeptical, I AM intrigued. and I love the way you pureed these, so you can’t even tell, ha! so many nutrients…
I think puree is a great introduction to this new ingredient. I was just as skeptical!
This is such an inventive idea! My kids go through bananas so quickly that I’m always adding peels to the compost. It would be nice to utilize the peels as well as the fruit. Thanks for sharing!
Absolutely! I go through quite a few myself during the week. Let me know if you give them a try!
I’ve never seen a recipe using banana peels before, but I am intrigued by this! I love that it really uses all of the waste that I would normally throw in the compost bin to make something tasty and nourishing!
Exactly! Super nourishing and a great way to keep produce out of the bin!
Hi ! Great idea, yet a “miss” slipped through : whdn do you add your flax eggs to the mixture ? Poor forgotten eggs…
Angel!! Thank you! Haha those poor forgotten flax eggs. I knew I was forgetting something in this site re-do 😀
Appreciate you <3
I’m definitely going to try this soon. Do you have any other banana peel recipes?
Let us know how it goes! Don’t have any other peel recipes yet, but we’re still experimenting 🙂
