SO HOW'D IT GO?

These were good! I subbed a couple of things as well, like veggie oil for canola (b/c i didn't have any canola, no other reason),  and no maple syrup either so i used 1/4 cup agave nectar and 1/4 cup raspberry syrup. now i wish i would've used all raspberry syrup, because i couldn't really taste the raspberry, but could tell it would've been good if i had added more! they are plain, like you mentioned, but good with margarine on them while warm, and really good dipped in tea! (almost like a scone) i baked these for only about 16 minutes and they were DONE, but i guess that depends on the size; it made 12 pretty small muffins for me.

These were good-I might quite a few subs/additions. I used about 1/2 and 1/2 canola and applesauce. I also used part maple syrup and part butter pecan syrup, I added more cinnamon, soy milk instead of water, and added huckleberries! I think they maybe could have used a little more salt and a little more sweet. No need to use the paper cups-just a waste. I just spray generously with oil, and they come out just fine.  ;)

This is a great recipe.  I expected it to be dense and bready, but it was actually very moist and sweet like a cake.  I used applesauce instead of the oil and doubled the cinnamon as others had suggested.  I also added raisins.  Next time I might add some walnuts, too.  I baked these in a square pan lightly covered in oil.  Had to keep in the oven for about 30 minutes (used the toothpick test), but they were perfect and came out of the pan easily.

I liked these quite a bit.  I thought the sweetness was fine and they weren't overly heavy or dry. I like "hearty" bread products anyway.  Subbed all the oil for applesauce, added pecans, used soymilk in place of water, and upped the cinammon as suggested. I use silicone muffin cups and there wasn't a sticking issue. Thanks for a yummy recipe!

These came out a bit dense and heavy but I guess that's pretty standard for whole wheat.  It makes for a filling, hearty breakfast.  The flavor was good and not too sweet for breakfast.  I followed the suggestions and substituted soy milk and applesauce and added extra cinnamon.  Maybe I didn't sub enough applesauce because they were a little dry.  They smelled WONDERFUL!  I will certainly make them again.  Thanks for this great recipe to play with.  :)

Great recipe! Thanks. I altered the recipe after reading all these comments. I made a video with this recipe too.

these just came out of the oven, but judging by the batter (which i ate half of) these littles guys are delicious!!!!! i added 1/4 a cup of sugar, used about a tablespoon less of oil (i ran out) and doubled the cinnamon and baking powder. what i got was 12 beautiful, puffed, extremely yummy muffins!

This is an awesome, flexible basic recipe for vegan muffins.  I used 2tsp cinnamon, soy milk instead of water, and added a mashed banana, 1/4 cup chopped walnuts, and sprinkled raw sunflower seeds on top.  They came out perfectly moist, and not-to-sweet.  I can't wait to try the other variations suggested.

I have always been told that when replacing oil for applesauce, do not substitute 1 for 1 but use 1/2 oil and half applesauce. Otherwise, the consistency changes too much....Are you all substuting 1 to 1?
