Delicious Vegan Spelt Muffins

(9)

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.

Yield:
1 dozen muffins

Ingredients

  • 1 ½ cups spelt flour

  • 1 cup rolled oats

  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking soda

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 2 very ripe bananas, mashed

  • ½ cup sunflower seed oil

  • ½ cup white sugar

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease 12 muffin cups or line with paper muffin liners.

  2. Whisk together spelt flour, oats, baking soda, and cinnamon in a bowl. Stir together bananas, oil, and sugar in a separate bowl. Stir banana mixture into spelt mixture just until dry ingredients are moistened; divide mixture evenly into 12 muffin cups.

  3. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 18 minutes. Cool in pan for 10 minutes; remove to cool completely on a wire rack.

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.
