Breakfast used to be a free-for-all in our house. We have a few boxes of plain cereals, old fashioned + steel cut oats, toast, eggs, and fruit. I’d just make whatever with them depending on my mood, but it would be hectic and unsatisfying. Now I’m trying to treat breakfast with the same attention I pay to dinner, and it’s working out well.
These muffins are Ada’s favorite addition to her meal. I usually give her two with a banana and some milk. I made a few with chocolate chips for a semi-healthy snack, but you can really toss anything in them -- frozen or dry fruit, shredded veggies (like carrots or zucchini), baking chips, seeds, nuts, etc.
VEGAN BREAKFAST MUFFINS
What you’ll need . . .
- 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 3/4 cup whole wheat flour
- 1-2 tablespoons flax meal
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/4 cup brown sugar*
- Pinch sea salt
- 1 cup almond milk (or other)
- 1/4 cup olive oil (or coconut)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla or almond extract
- 1/2 - 1 cup add-ins (see above)
* I only have brown sugar in the house right now, but I think coconut sugar would taste amazing in this recipe. Or cane sugar -- other natural alternatives -- in the same ratio.
Method . . .
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a muffin tin with paper liners (or just grease well). Set aside.
- Whisk together the flours, flax, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, sugar, and salt.
- Then, in another bowl, combine the milk, oil, and vanilla.
- Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and mix until just combined. Then fold in whatever add-ins you want to include. Portion equally into the 12 tins.
- Bake around 20 minutes, until lightly brown and done in the middle (you can test with a toothpick).
