Spice in the Kitchen: Vegan Blueberry Muffins

Enter here to win a copy of this cookbook. Giveaway open until Tuesday, May 1, 2012.

While my tendency in muffin making tends to basically take a yellow cake batter and add berries to it, I don't feel that great serving that to my children for breakfast. They're already sweet enough without all that extra sugar surging through their veins! I wanted to find a recipe that was more wholesome, so I grabbed my copy of "Sticky Fingers' Sweets: 100 Super-Secret Vegan Recipes" to see if there is a recipe for blueberry muffins. Sure enough, there is!

The recipe was fairly easy to follow and I made sure to read the tips and tricks in preface to the muffins section to obtain the best results. Do not overbeat. Check. Lumpy batter is good. Check. And the end product? Sweet without being overly sweet. Moist without being wet. The addition of whole wheat pastry flour made for a more nutritious muffin with a toothy texture that felt more healthy than desserty. I did add a bit a lemon zest as I like a lemony blueberry muffin. Overall, I give the recipe a big thumbs up! A great way to start your mornings off right.

If you'd like to try the muffin recipe for yourself, win your own copy of  "Sticky Fingers' Sweets: 100 Super-Secret Vegan Recipes"! Contest open until Tuesday, May 1, 2012.
