Vegan Raspberry Muffins

Pin

 

My interest towards vegan baking started only when I was forced to go vegan due to medications last year around April for a period of six months. I sometimes wonder whether I would have discovered vegan baking otherwise. Those six months made me realise how tough it is for vegans to even have something from outside. I used to get frustrated at the lack of options and how I would helplessly look at the girls while they enjoy their slice of cake or their bowl of pudding. There would be eggless options, but not vegan options. Thankfully, slowly things are changing, but still vegan options are still mighty expensive in this part of the world. It is easier to make them and eat them at home rather than buy them! Hehe…

 

So for today’s Bake-a-thon post, these vegan muffins studded with raspberries is what I am going to share…

There is one thing with vegan baking – while using normal ingredients, the end result can be chewy. So do not approach them expecting a bake with eggs and/or diary in it. Same is the case with these muffins as well. I baked these when I was craving for something sweet but couldn’t get anything to eat, and the best part is I ate up all the 6 muffins, as none of the folks liked it at home, thanks to its texture. But that doesn’t mean that I didn’t enjoy them. I loved them for breakfast or tea time along with a cup of black tea or coffee. The tartness of the raspberries were perfect in these lightly sweet muffins. They are really easy to make, as there is no melting or waiting time involved, just mix, pour and bake! The only thing is that you have to be extremely careful just to fold them and don’t mix them vigorously so that you don’t have brick-like muffins! πŸ˜‰ Off to the recipe…

  2. Ha ha, this is the problem with us, if there is no taker for our bakes, we consume it ourselves. To me these muffins sound delicious

  3. Actually when we are forced to do something we find it tough, though there are times when we end up doing those things easily…I have tried vegan bakes with wonderful results with fruit puree and aerating it with apple cider. The texture comes out good when the portion baked is a muffin…Even I have resorted to baking these at home because the store eggless bakes are bad ..good to see such a wonderful bake here..

    1. Rafeeda AR Author says:

      Yeah that’s true… if we choose it with our will, nothing is tough to adhere to… Thank you so much Valli…

  12. Here we get vegan everything butter cheese and everything But you might consider using applesauce or yogurt work as great egg replaces to yield similar results to regular muffins

      I have never tried baking with applesauce, would love to try some day for sure… Thank you so much Mir…

  13. Vegan baking has come a long way in the past few years here. Most of the ingredients are easy to buy now.
    Your vegan raspberry muffins look moist and delicious.

    1. Rafeeda AR Author says:

      The market over here is still young, getting vegan ingredients is rare and expensive too, though it is improving… Thank you so much Pavani…

  14. hmm can understand when you are used to bakes with eggs , you can very easily know the difference in the texture! I never know the difference, i have got a liking for vegan bakes now, even at home kids and hubby don’t know the difference! Love the beautiful hue of raspberried in the muffins!!!

    1. Rafeeda AR Author says:

      I like eggless bakes better than vegan bakes for sure, but at times to like to experiment… Thanks a lot Priya…

    Great muffins ! I did try the oven at 200 I found it was too low of a temp to bake the muffins completely and they were still doughy. So I ended up bumping to 350 F πŸ˜‰

    1. Rafeeda AR Author says:

      The temperatures mentioned on all recipes on the blog is in Celsuis, since the ovens here work that way. Regret the confusion… Just glad they turned out well… πŸ™‚
