Vegan Pumpkin Bran Muffins

A couple of months back I borrowed the book 150 Best Diabetes Desserts from the library and liked the recipes in it. So I was thrilled to find the same book in our library’s used books sale for a dollar. The book has recipes for cakes, muffins, quick breads, cookies, cheesecakes, etc. These recipes are not sugar free but they use considerably lesser amount of real brown and granulated sugar instead of artificial sweeteners, which is the main reason I got this book. Most of the recipes use healthy ingredients like whole grains and flours, unsweetened applesauce, yogurt, flax seed meal. I tried a oatmeal raisin muffin recipe before and loved it. This time I wanted to bake something with pumpkin puree because I had some leftovers after baking these pumpkin cupcakes.

Vegan Vanilla Cupcakes Recipe & Video

September 3rd, 2013 Madhuram Posted in Muffins/Cupcakes, Vegan Cakes 18 Comments »



Last week was my son’s birthday and I was in a huge dilemma about choosing a cake recipe to bake for his big day. But he made it pretty simple by saying that he wanted a cheesecake because one of his friends cut a cheesecake for his birthday. Now this was even more difficult for me because I have not baked an egg free cheesecake so far. That’s when I decided to take the easy route of making a raw vegan cheesecake, which was also quite new to me. So I wanted to have a back up if the raw cheesecake flopped and planned to bake some egg less pumpkin cupcakes with cream cheese frosting. Then I needed to have a back up for that too or let’s say that I just wanted to have an alternate for the kids to choose and wanted to bake some plain eggless vanilla cupcakes.

Vegan Blueberry Bran Muffins

At our home we get the All Bran Buds and Flakes quite regularly. Each and every time there is this powdery cereal at the end that nobody wants to eat. So I started putting those last crumbs from every pack in a box. Just after 3 packs of cereal I had about 2 cups of cereal. I usually add it with my smoothies like this Fiber One Banana Smoothie. This time around I wanted to try a different recipe and was looking for some ideas and found this. I already have a super duper vegan blueberry muffin recipe and a whole wheat blueberry muffin recipe in this blog. I was deliberating whether to try another blueberry muffin recipe. Because I have so much success baking with bluberries I decided to give it a shot and the result was wholesome and hearty blueberry bran muffins that everybody gave two thumbs up.

Vegan Parsnip and Apple Muffins

Vegan Parsnip Apple Muffin

I was not always adventurous when it came to trying new food. That’s the reason I never bought parsnips until recently. I bought it once 5 years back and did not like it that much. Although parsnip looks just like carrot, it has a unique smell and flavor which I didn’t appreciate then. Fast forward 5 years, I’m much better now. I’m drinking green smoothies and eating kale salad! So when I saw the parsnip muffin recipe here, I was curious and wanted to give it a shot.
