Easy, delicious and healthful muffins

Recipe from Robbie

These are good for breakfast, snacking and lunch boxes. This recipe is a vegan version of the recipe on the Bob's Red Mill cereal bag.

            1 cup Bob's Red Mill eight-grain Cereal (available at Mother Earth's)

            1-1/4 cups whole-wheat pastry flour

1 tsp. each non-aluminum baking powder, baking soda, and sea salt (OK to reduce salt)

            1-1/2 cups soy milk

            2 tsp. apple cider vinegar

            1 tsp. vanilla

            1/3 cup mild, good quality oil; grape seed or walnut works well

            1/3 cup chopped nuts or dried fruit

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Mix the vinegar into the soymilk in a large bowl (makes them tender).  Then add the cereal and let it soak 10 minutes.

Meanwhile mix flour, soda, baking powder and salt in another bowl. A fork is fine no machinery needed to make these. When well mixed, add the fruit or nuts.

Add the oil and vanilla to the wet mixture. Mix well.

Combine the wet and dry ingredients, using a fork, and please don't over mix.

This amount will make 12 "regular" size muffins. Use paper baking cups or oil lightly.

Bake at 375o for 15 minutes.  Test with a toothpick; it may take another two minutes if the pick still has batter on it.

For parties use mini-muffin pans and reduce baking time.


We look forward to hearing from you
