Happy Holidays! :-)
This is my latest gluten-free, vegan and Ekadasi-friendly muffin recipe, specially posted for my friend Loka as a thanksgiving gift. :-) She loved these so much it made my day! Makes approx 20 delicious moist fluffy muffins.
3 cups ground almonds
1 cup buckwheat flour (not considered a true grain)
1 heaped TBSP baking soda
4 TBSP cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp ginger powder
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/2 cup chopped candied ginger (Trader Joe's)
1 cup orange flavor cranberries (Trader Joe's)
Mix all dry ingredients. Add in cranberries and candied ginger.
Blend together the following til smooth:
1 TBSP vanilla essence (optional)
1 1/2 cup maple syrup
3/4 cup safflower/sunflower oil
Approx 1 cup of water
Pour this into the dry ingredients and mix evenly. Fill into paper muffin cases in a muffin tray. Sprinkle tops with a dash of brown sugar.
Make sure you lightly oil the muffin tray to avoid burning the muffin cases and muffins while baking. Bake for approx 35 mins in a pre-heated oven at 380 degrees Fahrenheit.
Remove from oven and allow to cool. Offer with love and serve with tea, or however you desire. Very more-ish!! :-)
