Ingredients: 
  • 2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1/2 cup agave nectar
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil, at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened plain almondmilk or other non-dairy beverage
  • 1 tablespoon cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • Mix-Ins
  • Add 1 cup of any of the following:
  • dried fruit (raisins, tart cherries, chopped dates, thinly sliced apricots, etc.)
  • chopped fresh fruit (pears, apples, bananas, etc.)
  • vegan chocolate chips
  • Add 1 teaspoon of any of the following:
  • ground ginger
  • poppy seeds
  • chopped nuts (walnuts, almonds, pistachios, pecans, etc.)
  • unsweetened coconut flakes
  • finely grated orange, lemon, lime or grapefruit zest
  • ground cinnamon
  • unsweetened cocoa powder
  • fresh or frozen (unthawed) blueberries
Method: 
Preheat the oven to 400°F. Line a 12-cup muffin pan with paper liners.  

In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda and salt; set aside. Combine agave nectar, oil, almondmilk, vinegar and vanilla in a small saucepan. Place over medium-low heat and heat, stirring often, just until oil is melted. Stir into flour mixture just until combined and then gently fold in mix-ins. Divide batter evenly among the prepared muffin cups.

Bake for 10 minutes and then lower heat to 350°F. Continue baking until muffins are golden brown and cooked through (a toothpick inserted in the center of the muffins should come out clean), 8 to 10 minutes more. Allow muffins to cool in the pan for about 5 minutes, and then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Muffins will keep in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days.
