I've been on a huge muffin-making kick lately, due to it now being summer and the influx of fruits I can buy (as well as time I have on my hands!!) I've been particularly interested in making low-fat muffins so as to have a delicious, fresh, healthy snack. I know, right?

Anyway, here are two recipes that I've been fiddling with and trust me, not only will your friends not know they're vegan, they won't know how low in fat they are!!

2 c. flour
1 T baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 T cinnamon
2/3 c. sugar
1/2 T ener-g mixed with 2 T water
1 tsp vanilla
3/4 c. soymilk/milk of your choice
1/3 c. applesauce (one of the little snack cups)
roughly 1/2 pint blueberries

Preheat oven to 400. Sift the dry ingredients together. In a separate dish, whisk together the ener-g and water, then add with all other wet ingredients. (I measured my soymilk in a glass liquid measuring cup, then added the prepackaged applesauce and the ener-g mixture, and whisked it all together before adding it to the dry stuff.) Fold in the blueberries. Spray a 12-muffin tray with cooking spray (or fill with paper liners) and spoon in the batter. Bake 20 minutes.

This was my first-ever experiment with ener-g (and then second, and third... :D) after years of vegan baking with applesauce and I must say I am quite pleased! I'm so glad I spent $6 on the box of ener-g, especially since that's where I got my second recipe...

I adapted these from the Banana Teabread recipe on the back of the ener-g box. I was a little worried, but they are seriously the best muffins I've ever had.

1 1/2 c. flour of your choice
2 tsp ener-g
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 c. sugar
3 T oil
4 T water
1 T lemon juice
1 c. mashed banana (2 or so)

chopped walnuts/other nuts
cinnamon-sugar mixture (about 1 part cinnamon to 4 parts sugar, to taste)

Preheat oven to 350. Mix all dry ingredients together. Add remaining ingredients and stir until just mixed (less than 2 minutes). Spray muffin tray with cooking spray and spoon muffins in. Sprinkle each muffin with the chopped nuts and the cinnamon-sugar mixture, if desired. Bake 25-30 minutes.

As I'm typing this up, I noticed that I completely missed the baking powder, and they still turned out just fine! So I guess it's optional?

Sorry there are no pictures... my camera has decided it likes to eat battery life. :(
