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)...
