Muffins that Taste Like Doughnuts

Vegan Vittles was one of the first vegan cookbooks I purchased so I have a fondness for most all the recipes. My poor little book has seen better days, but after being forgotten on the the stove and pages fallen out, it mends together nicely. This is like the recipes - it's a great book to go back to, not just adventures-in-early-veganism.

Muffins that Taste like Doughnuts:
1 Cup flour
2 Tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 Cup soymilk
1/2 Cup apple sauce
1 Tablespoon maple syrup
1 Tablespoon oil
1 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
cinnamon sugar

Mix the wet, then the dry, then mix together. Sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar before baking in muffin tins for 20 minutes. I used my grandmother's muffin top pans.

This recipe is great because they are light and fluffy but low in fat and sugar. This was the first time I added blueberries were good, but I do not know I would add them again. Thank you Joanne Stepaniak for your great vegan recipes.

I've had that book for awhile now and that's one recipe that's always grabbed my interest. Still haven't tried them out, but maybe I will now!
