What Replaces the Egg in Vegan Pumpkin Muffins?
When it comes to vegan muffin recipes, there are few binding agents that can be used to hold the batter together so that the muffins don’t crumble. In this recipe’s case, it is actually the pumpkin that helps to hold everything together- it also makes them perfectly tender so that they don’t dry out.
How to make Vegan Pumpkin Muffins
Turn on the oven and let it preheat. Spray a muffin pan generously with cooking oil.
In a large bowl, add the dry ingredients and whisk to combine. In a separate bowl, add the remaining ingredients and whisk together. Next, add the dry ingredients to the wet and stir again until smooth.
Spoon the muffin batter evenly into the muffin cavities. Pop it in the oven and bake for a while, then reduce the heat and continue baking until a toothpick comes out clean.
Cool COMPLETELY in the pan, then serve and DEVOUR!!
If you’re into this vegan pumpkin muffin recipe, but need or want to mix things up to suit you, I say go for it! If you want to make it a little healthier, use whole wheat flour instead of white flour. If you’re looking for a bit more texture, feel free to throw in some craisins and/or chocolate chips! If you want some crunch to your tasty muffins, consider chopping up some walnuts or pecans and sprinkling them on top before baking them. There are SO many ways to get creative with this recipe!
Since these muffins are so tender and moist, I recommend storing them in the fridge. They will last for up to a week this way in an airtight container. If you want to freeze them, I recommend wrapping them individually in plastic wrap and then tossing them in a freezer style zip lock bag. They can be frozen for up to 3 months.
