Muffins, Muffins and More Muffins!

Muffins… The cupcake’s healthier cousin, and a fun snack for all ages. Muffins are great because you can make them in so many different flavors, both savory and sweet.

Unlike most muffins, the recipes in the following collection contain no eggs or dairy, so they’re cholesterol-free and do not include any ingredients that involve animal exploitation.

If you’re skeptical about the results of baking without eggs or dairy, consider the impressive accomplishment of vegan chef Chloe Coscarelli, who recently won a $10,000 prize with her gourmet cupcakes on The Food Network’s Cupcake Wars.

Read all the way to the end for a home-made substitute for store-bought soy milk to be used in baking. For more vegan baking tips, see Veganizing Your Favorite Baked Goods.

I baked muffins Friday. Too bad I didn't see these recipes first. Would have saved me using eggs. LOL. But I did use lactose free milk and butter. I made carrot/chocolate muffins and I haven't eaten one yet. Have very high self control. Hahaha. Thanks for posting!
