Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400° F.
  2. Lightly grease each slot of a standard muffin tin. Use paper liners to keep the recipe oil-free.
  3. Prepare flax eggs in a small bowl, by mixing together the ground flax & water. Set aside about 10 minutes. It will thicken up and become gel-like.
  4. When the flax eggs are ready, add all the ingredients (except the toppings) into a high-powered blender or food processor. Blend until smooth, about 1-2 minutes. Scrape down sides as needed.
  5. Pour mixture into each slot about 3/4 of the way full. Sprinkle each one with your favorite toppings. Be sure not to press toppings into the batter so that they bake up better.
  6. Bake for 15-18 minutes, until lightly golden brown. Insert a toothpick in the middle of a muffin or two. If it comes out mostly clean, they are done.
  7. Let muffins cool for 10 minutes in the pan before transferring them to a cooling rack, then cool for another 10-15 minutes. The muffins might flatten out a bit which is normal.
Recipe Notes

Topping Ideas: Berries, granola, vegan chocolate chips, chopped nuts, seeds, dried fruit, rolled oats, crushed cookies.

This recipe makes about 10-11 muffins, depending how much you fill the slots. If you've greased a slot that won't be used, just add a small amount of water to it, or wipe out the oil to prevent smoking.

Some muffin liners have a tendency to stick. If you aren't sure about them, just lightly grease the inside to prevent sticking.

If you don't have ground flaxseed, you can use chia seeds instead. The measurements and method are the same as the flax, except the chia seeds can be used whole. If you only have whole flaxseed, you can grind it in a coffee grinder.

To avoid the liner sticking to the muffin, let them completely cool before enjoying. If not using liners, gently pop out each muffin with a butter knife.
