Millet and Oat Muffins #vegan

I really hate to add to your To-Do list for the weekend, but a batch of these muffins would be a good idea. They stash nicely in the freezer and given that they are fairly low in sugar they make a healthy addition for the kids lunch box. Or better yet, with a piece of fruit and slathered with nut butter they are a quick and compact little breakfast.

The trick to tender and flaky scones, even when they are vegan, is to not over mix the dough. Mix the dry ingredients together then add the honey (or your favourite liquid sweetener) and coconut oil. Mix well with your fingers to get a fine crumb. Yes, this is like making pastry.

This Blueberry Citrus loaf is a new addition to the must.make.all.the.time list. And while, yes there is a bit of sugar, I’ve seen worse. The bread gets a good amount of sweetness (and flavour) from the orange juice, blueberries and dried cranberries. It is low in fat, no saturated fat, completely vegan and uses whole wheat flour. I say this is a win-win.

When someone says bake something I just naturally go for muffins. And given that it’s that time of year where I find myself overstocked with pumpkin puree, these are pumpkin muffins. Vegan. Whole-grain. And I added a little extra brown sugar streusel on top for fun.

For many of us, cancer had reach deep into your lives and changed them significantly.  Spouses, aunts, uncles, mothers, fathers, neighbors and friends. As cliche as it sounds, it touches all of us. It creates fear and paranoia. Every bump, lump, new ache or sunburn...

Lunchbox food: Oatmeal and Molasses Cookies

There are very few boxed treats I will buy to throw into my kids’ lunch. I find that what I would consider the healthier alternatives are not appropriate for lunches because of the nut-free thing and well, let’s face it most are little more than candy bars anyway.   I...

Breakfast food: Vegan Raspberry Pecan Muffins

A few words about these muffins before I begin. 1) My daughter requested raspberries, which were only available frozen this time of year, meh results – while the flavour was good, they bled purple juice throughout the muffins. I don’t like the purple streaks. 2)...

You know those half tray mini-baking pans?  Mini-muffins, mini-doughnuts?  Yeah, those, where the pan is half the size of a normal muffin tray…. don’t bother!  Just buy the full sized pan.  If you’re going to do mini-somethings.. you are going to want to do a least 24...
