… Apple Pecan Muffins!
I’m super excited to be guest posting on Tales of Expansion; as my blog is geared towards dressing professionally as a vegan, writing about food is a fun diversion from the vegan clothing and accessories. Since I’m a vegan on a budget (aka – law school grad with loans on a government salary), I make a batch of vegan muffins every weekend and then eat one or two for breakfast every morning (one if I make jumbo sized; two if I make regular size). This week I made Apple Pecan Muffins based on a recipe in The Joy of Vegan Baking.
And the necessary baking instruments:
The batter had some trouble holding all of the chopped apples (perhaps I cut too many; oops), but I found a way to smush them all in! Based on the batter issues, I decided to make regular sized muffins so I could better monitor their progress in the oven. The over-stuffing didn’t hurt the muffins at all. Here they are pre- and post-bake:
Of course, I had to taste-test one of them:
It was very yummy — so yummy that I intend to bring some to my co-workers on Tuesday (I have today off!). I am on a quest to prove to my co-workers that vegan baked goods are just as tasty as, and possibly better than, baked goods that incorporate butter, eggs, and milk. Based on co-workers’ previous comments, so far it’s working! So, next time you are at Whole Foods or think about baking something from scratch, don’t forget to consider vegan options. 😉
