Crushed Cracker Crumb Muffins

What you need: 

1 cup crushed cracker crumbs (I used Town House type crackers)
1 cup flour
3 tablespoons oil
3 tablespoons sugar
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup soy or rice milk
Additions: 1 Ener-G egg substitute 1/4 cup shredded vegan cheese, 1 tablespoon grated onion, parsley, etc.

What you do: 

Spray a 24 cup muffin pan and preheat oven to 400.
Crush crackers with hands, some slightly larger pieces (up to half a dime sized) are fine. Add flour, soda and salt and mix well.
Make a well and add oil, sugar, water and any add ins. Mix until just blended- batter will be lumpy. Scoop into tins and bake for 15-20 minutes, or until tops are lightly browned.
These taste strongly of your cracker, so plan accordingly. Mine tasted very light and buttery, like the crackers. I think it would work well with Triscuts and Wheat Thins as well, but I have not tried.
Instead of crackers, try this recipe with Matzo, crushed corn chips, crushed hard cookies...anything stale or hard you need to get rid of or have on hand.

SO HOW'D IT GO?

I really liked how these turned out. I used graham crackers and added a bit of peanut butter, too. They smelled like cinnamony peanut butter cookies. I added raisins instead of the cheese. Hoping these will go over well for breakfast tomorrow. The batter was delish!

I must have done something wrong, because instead of winding up with 24 muffins, I got 10.  Were these supposed to be mini muffin size?? I made mine cupcake size...Also was a little confused in regard to the instructions saying to add water, and that wasn't an ingredient. 
These are still baking, so I can't say how they will turn out, but just disappointed that the yield was off.

the ingredients list calls for baking powder, but the instructions says soda.  just wanted to know which it's supposed to be.

Baking powder!  Sorry about that!

I just made something similar to this with graham cracker crumbs... less oil and flour in my recipe though. And I used chocolate soymilk and dashes of cinnamon... yummy!
