Yummy muffins…

Music: Hana Pestle


These came out great!


I made these on Sunday, improved and adapted from a Vive le Vegan recipe:

2 C ground oats
1 C whole wheat pastry flour
3/4 C unsweetened shredded coconut
1 tbsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp sea salt
2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
3/4 C raisins
1/4 C dried cranberries
2 tbsp ground flaxseed meal
1 1/4 C soymilk
1/2 C pure maple syrup
2 tsp almond extract
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/3 C vegetable oil

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Set up your muffin tins by either lightly oiling them or using cupcake liners. In a large mixing bowl, combine dry ingredients EXCEPT flaxseed meal, sifting in the flours, baking powder & soda. In another smaller bowl, combine flax & milk. Add maple syrup, extracts, & oil & mix. Add the wet ingredients to the dry & stir through until well mixed. Spoon into muffin pans. My muffin tin only has 12 slots & I had leftover batter so I used a mini bread loaf pan for the rest. Bake about 18 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out squeaky clean! If making as a bread, wait 10 minutes until turning out onto cooling rack.

Enjoy with a hot cup of tea.
