Apple Hemp Muffins

May 5, 2009 at 5:06 am 10 comments

We love muffins around our house…but I’m kind of a one recipe girl πŸ™‚ I LOVE my banana nut muffins and rarely stray away from them…but this morning I didn’t have all the ingredients so I went looking for an alternative. I knew Dreena Burton wouldn’t let me down. This recipe is from her fantastic cookbook, Vive le Vegan. These muffins are very flavorful and hearty…similar to her Stork Muffins. You’ll love these too!

Apple Hemp Muffins
1 1/2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
1 cup ground oats (blend quick oats in food processor until flour consistency)
1/2 hemp seed nuts
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg (freshly ground is best!)
1/8 tsp ground cardamom
1 cup unsweetened applesauce (we made our own in the Vita-Mix)
1/2 cup pure maple syrup or agave nectar
3/4 cup soy milk, almond milk or other non-dairy milk
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
3 tbsp olive oil

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In large bowl, combine all dry ingredients. In another bowl, combine all wet ingredients. Mix together gently and fold until blended (do not over mix).Β  Bake for 25-30 minutes (I used 21-22 minutes for smaller muffins).

Makes 8 medium-large muffins or 12 small muffins.

    Looks delish! Can’t wait to try it. What are the units for the soy milk and maple syrup? They just say 1/2 and 3/4. I’m guessing cups, but want to be sure.

    Thanks! Love your blog!

    I just realized a couple of weeks ago that I could blend oats into a flour… made some zucchini muffins with it and it was amazing!!! I’ll have to try out the muffin recipe(s) you have posted now πŸ™‚

    It’s always nice to try something new. You can really find another “favourite receipe” this way. The best are the ones that sound disguisting but turn out delicious!

    Thanks in advance!! they look and sound wonderful!

    Quan…it could work, but might have a different taste. I would probably use less.

    II would love to try the muffins. Not to change the subject
    but if you like corn tortillas you will love them made with hemp.
    They come with regular corn, New Mex red chili, green chili
    and blue corn. You can see the tortillas on the chia seed web
    page. Only the ones on the web page do not have hemp yet.

    Let me know==

Words to Eat By

"It is easier to change a man's religion than to change his diet." -Margaret Mead

"I don't understand why asking people to eat a well-balanced vegetarian diet is considered drastic, while it is medically conservative to cut people open and put them on cholesterol lowering drugs for the rest of their lives." - Dean Ornish, MD

β€œFinish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
