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.

SO HOW'D IT GO?

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!

I really enjoy these when made with 1 1/2 cups of packed sugar, but my boyfriend loves them with slightly less than 1 1/2 cups loose sugar. I guess it depends on how sweet you like things. I've made these several times since finding the recipe a couple of weeks ago, and they always disappear within a day. Last night I forgot the brown sugar and added it at the end, I couldn't work out the flour lumps so I just put them in the oven lumps, and all. My boyfriend said they were the best yet.

These are excellent! I preheated at 450 and baked at 400 and they came out looking burned, but they were not. The brown sugar is very evident. I took them to school and everyone enjoyed them. They have a unique texture that is enjoyable.

oh wow. SO good. the best vegan muffins i have ever ever made. i followed some suggestions that others posted. i only used 1 cup of sugar, used chai tea for the water, added some flaxmeal, cinnamon, cardamom, nutmeg, a mashed banana, a hand full of oats and some oats on top. SO SO good. filled the tins up all the way and baked for 20mins. and they rose better than any other vegan muffin i have ever attempted to make.

i wonder if i could use something in place of the sugar like maple syrup? or would that be too liquid-like?

thanks!!

This were really tasty, my boyfriend who is an muffin connoisseur gave them the thumbs up. He said the texture was just right.

I can't believe I've found a vegan muffin recipe he likes!

But, my muffins didn't rise as much as the others in the photos and once they were cold they flattened out a little. The outside was also a little overdone and crispy but the inside was brilliant. I only cooked them for 20 minutes.

Is my oven to hot or too cold?
Was I not working fast enough?

These muffins make my tummy happy!  I love how quick and easy they are to make.  I can whip them up in no time for a yummy before-school treat.  I used 1 cup unbleached white flour and 1/2 cup whole wheat flour, added about 2 tablespoons wheat germ, reduced the sugar to 1 cup (and probably could have used a little less), threw in some cinnamon, and replaced all of the oil with applesauce.  They only needed about 18 minutes in the oven and they came out perfectly.  Next time I think I'll replace some of the sugar with maple syrup and throw in some pecans.  Thanks for the awesome recipe, Steven.  ;)

I just made these and they are soo good! Like others suggested, I added flaxmeal, walnuts, raisins, cinnamon plus substituted the oil with 1 cup banana and applesauce. I also preheated the oven to 450 then turned it down to 400 and baked for 20 minutes. They are absolutely delicious, moist and taste very healthy! I'm definitely making these again!  :)

I wasn't sure whether the recipe caled for 1 1/2 cup of packed brown sugar or 1 1/2 cups of unpacked brownsugar so I ended up using 3/4 cup of packed brown sugar. I also baked them for 30min under 375 and glazed them with a little lemon icing and they were fabulous. Even on its own, it's a must try!

Super good, once I made a few adjustments:
Whole wheat flour
2 mashed bananas instead of oil
chopped walnuts
a dash of cinnamon
1 cup organic brown sugar

I preheated the oven to 450, then put it down to 400 when I put the muffins in.
They're really tasty!!!!
