Cinnamon Harvest Muffins

Here is a delicious recipe for Vegan Cinnamon Harvest Muffins.

Note: We usually use a mortar and pestle to grind up the whole grains by hand. It is symbolic of the grains harvested in the fall for Samhain (Celtic Halloween) -- you can use any you'd like: barley, bulgur, millet, oat, buckwheat, rice... etc.

  • 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup ground grains of your choice (or you may simply use additional flour - I used ground barley and oats)
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg or pumpkin spice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 flax eggs (1/4 cup flax and 1/2 cup water)
  • 1 cup plant milk
  • 1/2 cup melted vegan butter or olive oil
  • equal parts cinnamon and sugar for topping
  • coconut oil to grease baking stone

  • Mix dry ingredients (flour, grains, salt, baking powder, cinnamon, spice)
  • Mix wet ingredients (flax eggs, plant milk, vegan butter, sugar)
  • Combine together and stir gently
  • Coat your muffin stone or baking pan with coconut oil
  • Fill each cup 3/4 full
  • Sprinkle the tops with cinnamon sugar mixture
  • Bake for 15 minutes at 375 (or until done)
