Vegan banana bran muffins

4 very ripe bananas, peeled
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup oat bran
1/2 cup brown sugar (or so)
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons cinnamon (or so)
3 teaspoons vanilla extract
~1/4 cup milk substitute (I used almond milk)
non-stick spray (I used Trader Joe's non-stick baking spray with flour) or muffin liners

Preheat oven to 350°F. Either spray with non-stick spray or add muffin liners to muffin tin.
In a small bowl, smush the bananas with a fork and then a whisk until creamy. Don't worry about getting all the lumps out, but try to get the big ones smooth.
In a separate bowl, blend all dry ingredients. Add vanilla extract, smushed bananas, and milk substitute. Mix well. If consistency of batter seems too dry, add more milk substitute as needed.
Fill muffin tin 1/2 to 2/3 full with batter. Cook 20-25 minutes until golden brown. Allow to cool 5-10 minutes before removing from tin and allowing to cool completely.

Makes 8-10 muffins (depending on size).
