Flax ‘n Gl’oat Vegan Breakfast Power Muffins

by Angela (Oh She Glows) on June 25, 2009

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. :)



Prep Time:
15 min
Cook Time:
17 min
Total Time:
32 min
8 power muffins


  • 1 banana (ripe)
  • 2 T canola oil
  • 1 t egg replacer + 2 T warm water
  • 1/4 cup organic sucanat sugar
  • 1/4 cup agave nectar
  • 1/4 cup ground flax
  • 1/2 cup unbleached AP flour
  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1/2 t baking soda
  • 1/2 t aluminum-free baking powder
  • 1/4 t fine sea salt
  • 1/2 t pure vanilla extract
  • 1 t cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350 and grease 8 muffin tins or line.
  2. Mash banana into a medium sized bowl.
  3. Mix egg replacer and set aside.
  4. Beat in oil, egg replacer, and sugars.
  5. In a separate bowl, stir together the dry ingredients (Oats, ground flax, flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt).
  6. Add dry ingredients into wet and stir. Do not over mix.
  7. Add nuts or dark chocolate chips if preferred.
  8. Spoon into muffin tins. Bake for 17 min.



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:


These are hands down my favourite cookie that I make!

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.

1) I’m back in the kitchen the rest of the day…I am quite behind now! Doh! Thank you for your order emails…I promise I will get to all of them within the next couple of days! :)

2) Don’t forget to keep those SGBC Casting Call submissions coming in!!! I’m loving them! :)

3) We just had a crazy thunderstorm and winds so the house is nice and cool. Although the storm passed within 10 mins. and now it is HOT and sunny once again.

4) I see Hot topics/FAQ’s in your future!

5) As always, Amazing Grass is powering me throughout my busy days! don’t forget if you enter ‘ohsheglows’ at the checkout you get 15% off your order!

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


Pam Striker June 25, 2009 at 1:17 pm

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!

Angela (Oh She Glows) June 25, 2009 at 1:18 pm

Ohh I so need to make both of those muffins!!


Karen June 25, 2009 at 1:22 pm

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…


The Running Yogini June 25, 2009 at 1:28 pm

Danielle C. June 25, 2009 at 2:02 pm

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


Amy June 25, 2009 at 2:06 pm

You poor girl… baking in this sweltering heat! I get hot just blow drying my hair, so I can imagine whats its like baking!

I’m allllllll about the banana muffin. MY favorite!

Have a great day!


Kelly Happy Texan June 25, 2009 at 2:07 pm

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. :)


Whitney June 25, 2009 at 2:08 pm

As much as I love all your recipes, I have a little affair going with [email protected]’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.


Krista June 25, 2009 at 2:53 pm

How long does the code at Amazing Grass last for?


Holly June 25, 2009 at 3:45 pm

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 :)


Heather @ Health, Happiness, and Hope June 25, 2009 at 4:00 pm

Awesome recipe Angela. You sure have been busy in the kitchen! Thanks so much for sharing your adventures and that delicious recipe! :)



Jenn June 25, 2009 at 4:11 pm

Everything looks good!

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.


Leah @ Simply Fabulous June 25, 2009 at 4:52 pm

Photos are looking fab!


Jenny Marie June 25, 2009 at 5:11 pm

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!


leslie June 25, 2009 at 5:41 pm

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!


Trish (girlatgym) June 25, 2009 at 5:54 pm

I’ve been planning to make some muffins. I just can’t make up my mind what kind I want! :-)


Shelby June 25, 2009 at 6:38 pm

Yes I know the muffin man! He gives me blueberry muffins! My favorite =)


[email protected] June 25, 2009 at 6:48 pm

Eric’s coworkers are lucky to get your cast offs! Amazing Grass has been keeping me going this week too. Energy x 10!


N.D. June 25, 2009 at 8:39 pm

glad it worked out -they look delicious!


Katie June 25, 2009 at 10:09 pm

i just wanted to say i really wanted to try your “Swamp water” hehe so i ordered the chocolate kind of amazing grass powder!! and ill let you know how it tastes!!


Joanna June 26, 2009 at 6:03 am

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!


Sarah Oliver March 16, 2015 at 9:42 pm

I know this is an older one, but I just wanted to add that these are my absolute favorite muffins ever!!! They are a huge hit with everyone I share them with! Thank you so much for this recipe.


Sandeep May 16, 2018 at 1:06 am

I Love these muffins, So delicious and thank you for the recipe, I’m gonna try it soon
