Mmmmmmmmmuffins!

Not the healthiest muffins, but soooo good. I'm thinking next time I'll sub out agave for the sugar and use part unbleached flour and part some other flour. Even trade out the oil for applesauce. That oughta do it!

For now, here's what I threw together

Mmmmmm Morning Muffins
makes 12

2 c. unbleached flour
1/2 tsp. salt
3 tsp. baking powder
1/2 c. Florida Crystals
2 med. bananas, mashed
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 c. canola oil
3/4 c. soy milk
1 tsp. vinegar
raspberry All Fruit
1/8 c. ground walnuts
1-2 T raw sugar
walnuts (for putting on top)

350 oven.
mix vinegar with soy milk to 'sour'. set aside.
in a large bowl, sift together flour, salt, and baking powder.
mash bananas well and add vanilla, then add to dry ingredients. now add sugar, oil, and soured milk. stir until just mixed.
line muffin tins with paper cups.
fill each cup with one T batter
gently spoon in about a teaspoon of All Fruit in the center.
top with another heaping T of batter.
combine raw sugar and ground walnuts in small bowl.
sprinkle mixture atop each muffin and place walnut in center.
Bake for 35 min or until knife comes out clean.
remove from tin immediately and allow to cool entirely on rack.
Try to let them cool all the way before digging in. I found that not doing so meant that the liners stuck to the muffin and the All Fruit inside was steamin hot! Best to let cool on a rack entirely before enjoying their yummy goodness.

I have a hard time letting muffins cool before digging in, which usually means I"m scraping muffin off the side, but oh well! Those look delicious. I've been making tons of muffins for breakfast lately....definitely post your healthier option if you try one out!
