These fabulous muffins are Vegan & Refined Sugar Free (gluten free option as well)! You have room to be creative as you design a muffin that totally satisfies you desire for a treat and your desire to be healthy!
Preheat oven to 350 and line a muffin tin with paper liners (this recipe makes 12)
Combine dry ingredients in one bowl and egg substitute and wet ingredients in another. Mix until just combined, then add in the diced fruit, nuts and creative additions. Bake for 25-30 minutes then let cool completely. This dough is usually very crumbly and somewhat dry when filling the muffin cups, but the end result after cooking is dense, scrumptious, healthy muffins.
1 cup whole wheat flour (gluten free works too,but they will come out a bit crumbly.)
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup coconut sugar
1/4 cup light brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
vegan egg substitute for 2 eggs
2/3 cup coconut oil
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 apple cored, pealed and diced
1/2 cup dates, raisins, or other dried fruit
1/2 cup grated carrot
1/2 cup chopped pecans
You may make substitutes for some of the add-ins for different tastes. I've enjoyed adding dried coconut, pumpkin seeds, starfruit, crystallized ginger and pineapple. Use what is on hand and what you are craving!
