How to Make Easy and Delicious Vegan Carrot Muffins
- Grease muffin pans well, using cooking oil of choice. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. In small mixing bowl shift together dry ingredients; flour, blended oats, bran, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger. Mix well. Set aside.
- In large mixing bowl cream together wet ingredients using mixing spoon; ground flax seed, vinegar, shredded carrots, blended pineapple, cooking oil of choice, vanilla extract, water, sugar, and shredded coconut. Add ½ cup walnuts or raisins, if desired. Mix ingredients well with hand mixer.
- Mixture will be thick and lumpy. Using spoon, fill well-greased muffin tins almost full. Muffins will not rise much in oven.
- Bake the carrot muffin batter on middle shelf of oven until tooth pick comes out clean when inserted, so around 40 to 50 minutes. Let cool slightly before removing from pans. Use fork to gently pry carrot muffins from pan.
Make sure to store vegan carrot muffins in an airtight container to keep moisture longer.
