Vegan goodness!

These muffins are just wonderful & amazing too! Ooh yes!

Recipe: For 16 heart-shaped muffins

Ingredients:

** For the dry ingredients:

2 cups organic light spelt flour

1 cup organic white flour

4 teaspoons baking powder

1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon sea salt

2/3 cup fresh frozen cranberries

2/3 cup shelled walnut halves, cut up , measured when cut up

2/4 cup vegan chocolate chips, semi-sweet

** For the wet ingredients:

1/2 cup maple syrup

6 tablespoons sunflower oil

2/3 cup fresh clementine juice

Method:

1. Preheat your oven to 220ยฐ C ( 425 F ) for 10 minutes. I always use a fan oven. Adjust your oven to the right temperature.

2. In a large bowl, combine light spelt flour, white flour, sea salt, baking powder & cinnamon. Mix well. Add fresh frozen cranberries, chopped walnuts & vegan semi-sweet chocolate chips. Combine well. Set aside.

2. In another smaller bowl, combine maple syrup, 6 tablespoons of sunflower oil & the fresh clementine juice. Mix well with a whisk.

3. Now, add wet ingredients to the dry ingredients to form a dough. combine well. Do not overmix!!! Spoon your dough equally divided filled for 2/3 into your heart-shaped silicon baking ware, pushing the dough down into the heart shape & place onto an oven rack into the preheated oven. Bake for about 12 minutes, until the tops are golden & browned. Test with a mini skewer, into the middle top of each muffin, to see if the insides are cooked enough. If not, add them back into the oven & bake for some extra minutes. Do the pin test again. If ready, transfer to a wire rack, to cool into the silicon pan, until completely cold. Unmold the muffins carefully, upside down is the best way, carefully pushing the muffin down, out of the muffin pan to prevent breaking the muffins!!! ย Enjoy them cold, sliced open, eaten with some good vegan butter! MMM!!! If you have leftovers, store them in a muffin or cookie box.

      No, I juiced fresh clementines myself! I don’t think clementine juice exist! You always have to juice the fruits yourself for better flavour!! ๐Ÿ™‚ Thee were little Christmas napkins, that I so much love! ๐Ÿ™‚
