- In a large bowl, mix together coconut milk, rice milk, vanilla, maple syrup, oil, and applesauce, and then add the flax mixture to this. (for less fat, use more applesauce and less oil.
- Add flour mixture to the large bowl of wet ingredients until just mixed (don't over-mix). Fold in mashed and chopped bananas, granola, walnuts, and coconut. Scoop into muffins tins and sprinkle the tops with the wheat germ, if using.
