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.

i made these with all whole wheat flour, apple sauce instead of oil, 1 cup of turbinado sugar, dashes of cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, and ginger, and frozen blueberries. I sprinkled the tops with sugar also. They turned out delicious, and i love that they are relatively healthy  :)


Very simple and tasty recipe and it is very forgiving for adding stuff. I reduced the sugar to just one cup (white, I had no brown), subbed applesauce instead of the oil, added a dash of vanilla, and a couple swirls of  natural boysenberry sauce/syrup--that gave it a delicious flavor and hinted of blueberries, (which I was craving but had none!  ;)

Very good!  It's My fav muffin recipe now  ;D


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!  :)
