i made them without the crumb topping and are fabulous


Mmmm, yummy!

My boyfriend and I made these tonight for dessert and they were great!  Although, we did end up making a few changes...

We didn't have enough regular sugar so we put in about 1/2 cup of white sugar and 1/4 cup of brown--highly recommended.  It gave a more complex flavor to the muffins.

For the egg replacement, we took 2 tbsp of ground flaxseeds (the blueberry kind from trader joe's) and whisked it with 3 tbsp of water until it had a gelatenous texture.  It gave the muffins a wonderful texture and bit of a nutty flavor (not to mention the health benefits of flaxseeds)

When we first put the ingedients together, it looked really dry (maybe the flaxseeds did this?) so we just kept adding soymilk until it looked right (who ever said baking was an exact science?)

Anyways, these turned out fabulously and they got the thumbs up from my meat-eating, muffin-loving boyfriend!


I also forgot to say that I followed the metric measurements and it worked fine, used banana for egg replacer and only baked them for about 19-20 minutes.


whoaaa these are so good - if it wasn't 10 at night I woulda eaten a lot more than I have already by now. I subbed maple syrup (slightly under 1/2 cup) and used a little in the topping instead of sugar. I also threw in some cinnamon and it's to tasty. aweesome :D can't think what they'd be like with blueberries. positively orgasmic! hehe thanks for a recipe that actually worked for me :o


Can you make these and leave out the fruit? They sound really good but I just don't have any blueberries on hand.

I think these muffins would be delicious sans-blueberries. I've only made this recipe with the blueberries, but if you tossed in some cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice (and be sure to make the topping!), I think it would be a nice change. You could also get creative and use other fruits (apple, banana, dried cranberries) or things like chocolate chips or nuts.

I have made these muffins many times now and each time they have come out wonderfully !!  I am so pleased with these muffins, my husband (meat eater) loves them and I've just brought a batch to work and wowed the MD and all my meat munching colleagues in my department  ;D  I am so glad, everyone is so amazed that they are vegan.


yummmmmmmmm!  i made these in a heart shaped muffin tin and gave them to my very non-vegan boyfriend so he could have a loving breakfast for a few mornings, and he loved 'em.

try this recipe out, the topping makes it great.



don't do what I did. I heard about the tendency toward dryness, so I added more OIL! They were yummy but so so heavy, my kids had to roll me into bed! I am going to try again using more soymilk.


These are so great  ;D

I added coconut, dates, and walnuts to mine, added more liquid too. They are terrific :o
