Butternut Squash Muffins [Vegan]

This Recipe is :

Dairy Free Vegan

Serves

6 large or 12 regular sized muffins

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups whole-wheat pastry flour (if you don’t have this, substitute with 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour plus 1 cup all-purpose)
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup butternut squash puree
  • 1/2 firm extra-firm tofu blended into a smooth mixture with 1/4 cup of nondairy milk
  • 1 tbsp canola or other flavorless vegetable oil
  • 2 tbsp flax meal (ground flax seeds)
  • 1 cup turbinado or unprocessed cane sugar

Preparation

  1. Mix together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large bowl.
  2. In another bowl, mix the butternut squash puree, blended tofu, flax meal, oil, and sugar.
  3. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and stir until just mixed– do not overmix. A few lumps are okay.
  4. Spray a muffin pan with oil or line with paper liners. I used a large muffin pan that makes six huge muffins, but you can bake these in the regular-sized muffin pans that will make 12.
  5. Bake the muffins for 15 minutes at 375 degrees. If you are using the large muffin tins, you will need to add 3-4 more minutes to the baking time. To ensure your muffins are baked through, insert a toothpick in the center. The toothpick should come out dry or with a few crumbs sticking to it. If it comes out with moist batter clinging to it, bake the muffins for a couple of minutes more and try the toothpick test again.
  6. Cool the muffin tin on a rack for 10 minutes, then pop out the muffins and continue cooling them on a rack.

Meyer Lemon Coconut Cream Tarts With Mint and Lavender [Vegan, Raw, Gluten-Free]

To make the crust: put the oats and almonds into a high speed blender and blend until it turns into a thick, slightly crumbly paste. If needed or desired, add a little maple syrup, then press into two tartlet molds or whatever shapes/molds you like. Put in the fridge. To make the lemon coconut cream: put the coconut and cashews into your high speed blender and blend until it turns into a thick paste/butter. Stir in a 1/4 cup lemon juice and the maple syrup until evenly combined (or blend it in). If you'd like more lemon flavour, add more lemon juice! I like mine quite tart - no pun intended, seriously - so I used a full 1/2 cup. Spread this mixture evenly into your crusts, then let them sit in the fridge overnight or for at least a couple hours so the flavours can get to know each other. Garnish with mint, basil, lemon zest, maple syrup or whatever else you like! Life is good!

How did you get the muffins to work? When I did this recipe, following the list of ingredients, there was not enough liquid to absorb flour. Let me know of your experience.

Also, on the tofu amount, what is 1/2 firm extra-firm tofu? How much is it? And is it extra firm or firm?

Many thanks.

Peace
