Simple Muffins

What you need: 

1 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 cups organic brown sugar
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 cup nondairy milk or water
1/4 cup oil
nonstick spray

What you do: 

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Combine flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder together in a mixing bowl.
2. Add milk or water and oil. Mix together. Place baking cups in a muffin pan or spray with nonstick spray.
3. Pour mixture into cups. Bake for 25-30 minutes.
How many you make depends on how big your pan is and how much is poured into each muffin.
Note: this is a very plain but delicious recipe. I love it. They’re good for breakfast with your coffee, tea, etc., though I eat them at anytime.

This is an awesome recipe! I halved the sugar and added a tsp of vanilla, dried cherries, and bits of a dark chocolate bar. As someone said before, I turned the oven up to 450 and then lowered it. They came out crispy on the outside and rose nicely! They're amazing. Even my mom likes them!  ;D


Made these last night, they are DELICIOUS!  I ate 2 straight out of the oven...yum.  Used the following variations:
3/4 c white flour, 3/4 c wheat flour, 1/2 c sucanat, 1/3 cup applesauce for the oil, dash of cinnamon (next time I will use more).  SO good, you must try these!


Made these this morning. They came out very pretty with rounded domes and everything. I only used 1 cup of the sugar though I wish I used more. I found them not sweet enough. But I guess I can always smear them with vegan margarine and strawberry jam! Will be good with tea. :)


Amazing recipe! So impressed in fact, that i'm going to scour my local shops here in the UK for a proper Muffin tray to make them even better  :)
Mine were crispy on the outside and soft on the inside, which made them even more perfect. Yum!

Excellent for all, young or old - From my 3 year-old daughter to her 52 year-old grandfather!


i sort of disliked these muffins. i have made other vegan muffins that were much, much better! i am glad i decided to experiment with muffin recipes but i will not bake these again. :(


These are great! Fruit is a nice addition and using a bit less sugar as previously suggested is also a good idea. Thanks for a great resipe!


Awesome! I had more batter than muffin pan space so
I made a muffin loaf too!


I just tried this recipe, and it was SO wonderful. I made a few modifications:

I used wheat flour instead of white.
I added one cup of brown sugar.
I added two bananas and one shredded apple in place of the oil.
I added rasisins (a somewhat large handful).

I made 12 regular sized muffins with these, and they rose wonderfully. I also set my oven to 450 and then turned it down to 400 once they were in.

I love the recipe. There are so many variations that can be tried with it. My mom, who is not a vegan, LOVED the muffins. She didn't believe me when I said they were vegan. Thanks for sharing this recipe!  :)


I think if you try it again with all brown sugar you may have more luck. If it's too sweet for you, use 1 1/2 cups loose brown sugar rather than packed.


I don't really know how to rate this recipe. They tasted very good, but they baked REALLY weird. First of all, the edges burned long before they were finished baking. Secondly, some of the muffins downright exploded. And lastly, the ones that didn't explode ended up with a big hole in the middle - as in, the top was fine and the bottom was fine, but the middle was hollow!! How did this happen? I pretty much followed the recipe, but I used 1/2 cup whole wheat flour and 1 cup white, and 1/2 cup brown sugar (all I had left) and 1 cup white sugar + a few drops of molasses. I also added a dash of cinnamon. Any ideas as to what went wrong? Like I said, they tasted great, although if I make them again I might try reducing the sugar to 1 cup - I love sweet things, but these were so sweet I felt myself getting a cavity as I ate them, LOL!
