3 Quick & Easy Vegan Muffins

July 19, 2020

 

It's handy to have a muffin recipe for when you need a fun and tasty treat as a gift for a loved one or for a daily snack.

I have 3 easy recipes below. I bake one of these recipes every week. They are delicious with a cup of tea. They are all similar to one another which makes them easy to remember. I use spelt flour as it's higher in fibre but feel free to use plain flour. I also use coconut sugar but use whichever sugar you have. You can substitute nut milk instead of oil for a lower fat content. All recipes make 12 muffins.

 

 

CHOCOLATE AND BANANA
