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
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
Preheat oven to 375
Mix the vinegar into the soymilk in a
large bowl (makes them tender). Then add the cereal and let it soak 10
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.
