Well, what was supposed to be a quick and easy order this morning turned into The Battle of The Muffins BAKE-OFF!!!

You just never know what I’m going to do in that kitchen!

I was doing up an order and part of the order called for my Flax ‘n Gl’oat Breakfast Power muffins.

The only problemo?

These muffins had not been ‘veganized’ yet!

So my first batch was the traditional muffins with egg:

And for the second batch, I used my traditional recipe and modified it…A LOT!

The new vegan version is on the right!

 

I really enjoyed these vegan Flax ‘n Gl’oat muffins! The only thing I would change next time would be a bit less agave and a bit more sugar. They had a slight ‘agave’ taste to them. I’m very picky with agave for some reason! lol.

And I’m feeling pretty darn sweet today, so I am going to share my recipe with you all. :)

I also made a batch of vegan banana muffins that were a HUGE flop!

They were much too dense…

Eric and I both didn’t love them. They were ok don’t get me wrong, but not vault worthy. :D He’s going to give them to his coworkers! LOL. They’ll eat anything…

Packaging up!

I use this awesome thermal bubble wrap specifically made for shipping food products. It keeps heat and moisture OUT!

I get asked a lot where I buy my packaging products from. I buy everything in LARGE bulk orders from www.uline.ca It is hands down AMAZING!!!!!! Best customer service and selection aournd!! Check em out. :

A batch of my fabulous Chocolate Chip and Walnut Spelt Cookies:

More Blueberry Banana Vegan mini loaves

When I create recipes in the kitchen, I literally do it on the spot as I did with my new vegan Flax ‘n Gl’oat muffins.

It gives me a rush not knowing how it will turn out! :) See all my scribbling??? It is chaos, but it works for me! Now I just have to type up the new recipes and discard the old ones.

I love regular old bran muffins with nothing in them. That’s so boring – but really one of my favs.

Hi Angela,

All your baking looks wonderful and thank you kindly for the recipe.

I love all muffins, but I would have to say blueberry peach with a strusel (sp-?…lol!) topping and of course, gluten free!

Have a great day and I enjoy your blogging!

Did you happen to see the comment I left yesterday about agave nectar? It was on the I Like It Green post. I was wondering what you think about it…

I think it’s a even tie between banana and pumpkin for favorite muffin flavor. I like them equally. So good!

Amazing Grass folks gave me some samples. Tried it for the first time this morning and L.O.V.E it! I’m hooked. It rocks my world. I’m wanting another one. :)

As much as I love all your recipes, I have a little affair going with Heather@Heathereatsalmondbutter.com‘s Banana Almond Butter Muffins. They are soooo good.

Of course your Flax and Oat power muffins get a spot in the top 5.

Basically anything with banana in it. I love banana.

How long does the code at Amazing Grass last for?

I think my favorite muffin to date has been a peach ginger one I got at whole foods. It was so moist with chunks of peach and had raw sugar sprinkled on top. So. Good.

On a similar note, I was watching an episode of Barefoot Contessa where she was baking 2 versions of different things, one with a “secret ingredient.” For her chocolate muffins, she included a teaspoon of instant coffee which she claims intensifies the chocolate flavors without adding a coffee taste. I thought it was really interesting and thought I’d share :)

I love fresh out of the oven, toasty warm bran muffins, sliced open with a pat of Becel – mmmmmmmmm.

Oh and banana nut come in a close second.

I love the names you come up with, not only are you creative in the kitchen but with your words and blogs too! I just got my order of the samples of Amazing Grass, can’t wiat to try them out!

pumpkin muffins are my favorite, although blueberry is a definite close contender.

i am a big kitchen experimenter with cooking – i always come up with a recipe on the spot. i’m always afraid of baking because you don’t know how it will turn out! with cooking you can usually alter things, but with baking you’re just stuck with it. good thing you have eric’s coworkers to eat them up!

I’m curious what your motivations are for giving up eggs in your baking (obviously if you’re baking for committed vegan customers or those who have egg allergies, that’s obvious) – but it seems your own tastes are gravitating to the vegan. Eggs are an amazing source of protein and generally very healthy for everyone except people with unusually high cholesterol levels – so what’s the argument for abandoning them? And what is “egg replacer” made out of? I’m really just curious, as I know you do a lot of research into your nutrition decisions – the question isn’t meant to sound critical!
