"A delicious vegan muffin that is crisp and golden on top, dense and hearty inside, and totally addictive. This recipe is a recreation of my favourite muffins from a terrific vegan cafe in Toronto. Tasty flavour additions to this basic muffin batter include: chopped sweet potato and dates, pear and walnuts, apple and cranberries, or whatever else may tickle your fancy."

Footnotes

  • Cook's Notes:
  • These muffins come out very golden and a little bit crispy on top compared to other softer muffins. Make sure to check with a toothpick that the inside has cooked through before removing from the oven.
  • Add 1/2 cup chopped nuts and 1/2 cup fresh or dried fruit to the basic muffin batter.

I'm going to rate these muffins first based on MY taste as a non-vegan, and then when my vegan niece comes and tries them, I'll make an addition to this review as to her viewpoint. This was my first experience with spelt flour, and it tasted grainy to me. However, the flavor of the muffin itself was very good. I took the liberty of using the addition of sweet potato and dried plums since the submitter suggested possibilities of additions to this basic recipe. There is another recipe here submitted by the same person using sweet potato. The twelve muffins cooked up perfectly and took exactly 18 minutes to bake. I do think adding nuts to these would be wonderful. Thanks, Mandi!

Really really good recipe. :) I made a double batch and swapped a 1/2 cup of honey out for the white sugar. Thanks Mandi!

I didn't have any spelt flour and used all purpose flour. I also add chocolate chips. My husband said they were good and I have to agree. I want to try spelt flour next.
