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 used 1 cup wheat flour and 1/2 cup regular flour. Added 2 tbsp (blueberry) flax seeds, 1 cup sugar and 1/2 cup brown sugar. 1/4 cup rice milk 2/4 cup water, Some raspberries, 1 tsp fresh strawberry juice.
I brought it to school, and they were gone by 1st period.
All my friends(and people I didn't know) loved them, and everyday they ask me for more.
I've even had people say they would be vegan forever if I made these muffins again.


These are so good! I added a cup of mashed banana, a couple handfuls of chopped walnuts, and used only 1 c of brown sugar and they are so yummy! And moist! My only complaint is that the edges look burnt, and I only baked them for about 23 minutes, but they're practically perfect on the inside, so I don't want to reduce the cooking time and have them undercooked inside, maybe adjusting the temperature would help? Either way, really tasty, I can't wait to make these again!


these were VERY good! my whole family enjoyed them. I plan on skipping off to the kitchen to make more after i finish typing this!


wonderful!! I used a third of the sugar, threw in a handful of oats and about ten strawberries - my dragon boat racing team loved them!


I love this recipe.  I've tried different variations - adding mashed banana, using all or some whole wheat flour, halving the sugar, substituting applesauce for half the oil - and all have worked great.  they always taste great, but sometimes aren't as pretty as the ones in the picture.  I found that if I preheat the oven to 450, then turn it down to 400 when I put the muffins in, it makes the tops rise more so that they look more picturesque.


I just fixed these tonight and they turned out wonderfully. I added in some dried cranberries which was a nice touch. I would just advise people to be careful about how long they bake them.  I set my timer for 25 minutes and by that time they had become a little burnt around the edges and this was despite the fact that I made them in my Texas-sized muffin pan.


These look WONDERFUL.  I see these as being the perfect easy muffin to jazz up with dried cranberries, dried apricots, blueberries, even shredded soy cheese!


Thanks so much for this recipe.  It was so easy, and my husband loved them too.  I'll definitely be cooking this again soon.
