Vegan Muffin Recipes
Inspired by traditional Pennsylvania Dutch shoo-fly pie, molasses and a crumb topping team up in delectably wholesome vegan molasses muffins. Barley malt syrup works just as well as molasses and produces a slightly milder flavor. Since these aren’t overly sweet, they make a great breakfast muffin, and are welcome in the lunchbox as well; delicious with slices of crisp apple. Photos by Hannah Kaminsky. more→
