Vegan Banana Date Oat & Hemp Muffins

Vegan Banana Date Oat & Hemp Muffins

When art imitates life...

These muffins are inspired by our fan favorite, Banana Cinnamon Date pints. Customers are always so intrigued by this flavor and the flavor profile reminds them of banana bread. In the Wonderlab, along with making gelato, we love cooking, baking and creating new recipes. Our founder, Kirsten, created this recipe to bring the flavors of Doozy Pots into a warm, wholesome baked treat; perfect for a cozy weekend breakfast or served with a scoop of gelato for dessert. We hope you enjoy!
