“A delicious, healthful vegan muffin that is crisp and golden on top, dense on and hearty on the inside, and all around addictive. The recipe is a recreation of my favourite muffins from a terrific vegan cafe in Toronto. Other tasty flavour combinations include: pear & walnut, apple & cranberries, or whatever else may tickle your fancy.”
