  Muffins are one of my favorite things to bake. Something about them just feels so wholesome, like little bundles of love for the people in my life. This is especially true when they are made with all healthy real ingredients. There is no butter, oil, milk or eggs in this recipe. Although I am no longer vegan, I still enjoy vegan baking a lot and will often “veganize” classic recipes. Vegan baked goods tend to be a bit denser but I actually prefer that. These were delicious with a little (vegan) butter.
