I’m all for eating healthy. But did you know that a vegan muffin at a bakery or grocery store can set you back as much as $3.75!? That’s for one muffin, people. The thought of my husband spending upwards of $15 a week on muffins makes me, well, sad. So I set out to make my OWN muffins, filled with healthy ingredients such as whole wheat flour, fruit, nuts and of course – lots of love! This easy recipe yields 18 muffins and it costs considerably less (especially when you have plenty of ingredients leftover to make ’em again and again!).

You’ll need:

Directions

1. Toss nuts in food processor to chop.

2. In a big bowl, combine pastry flour, cinnamon, salt, nutmeg/allspice, baking soda and chopped nuts.

3. In a smaller bowl, mix together oil, vanilla, sugar, brown sugar, yogurt and sliced fruit.

4. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix well – just long enough to get the dry stuff moist.

5. Drop mixture into lined muffin tin.

6. Optional: If you want to get a bit fancy, top the muffins with bits of nuts, fruit or a few dry oats.

7. Bake at 400 for 20 minutes or until done. (Remember, you are using whole wheat so they will be darker.)
