Apple Pie-Crumb Cake Muffins (vegan)
Another instant favorite from 'Vegan with a Vengeance', * * * * *. These muffins are really good, the perfect mixture of spice and sweet. They moved into 1st place in my fiancee's vegan baked goods list (I still prefer cupcakes with extra sweet icing for 1st place). They make a great naughty breakfast treat or semi-healthy dessert.
Ingredients for Muffins:
1 1/2 cup flour
1/4 cup + 2 tbsp sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp allspice
