Dairy Free Vegan





Cook Time



To Make the Chai Spice Mix:

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger

To Make the Muffins: 

  • 1 tablespoon ground flax seed
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1 1/2 cup whole wheat flour (gluten-free option: substitute oat flour—you can make your own by blending old-fashioned oats)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons chai spice mix
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt (optional)
  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil or vegetable oil
  • 1 cup applesauce
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup non-dairy milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 medium apples peeled, cored and chopped
  • 1/3 cup pecans (or other nuts like walnuts)


  1. Mix the ground flaxseeds and water in a small bowl and set aside to thicken.
  2. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  3. If not using a non-stick muffin tray, spray lightly with oil.
  4. In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients: oats, oat flour, baking soda, all of the chai spice ingredients, and salt.
  5. In a separate bowl, mix the wet ingredients: applesauce, non-dairy milk, mashed banana, vanilla extract, and flax egg.
  6. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir until just combined.
  7. Place a dollop of muffin mixture into each muffin tin and top with a sprinkling of chopped apples.
  8. Bake for 20-30 minutes. The muffins are done when a toothpick inserted into one comes out clean.

I see there\'s a step in the method to add mashed bananas but it isn\'t listed in the ingredients? Should there be mashed bananas in the ingredients, or is this a copy-paste error from another recipe? Also, the oil isn\'t listed in the method steps for the wet ingredients, so is coconut/vegetable oil necessary?

I am convinced that really good recipes result in nourishment for your body. The truth is that refined food ruins the body\'s ability to restore itself. It is really much simpler to shed the weight in case your metabolism functions right.

I came accross a program which gets a good amount of attention among health experts. shapingrecipes.com/metabolic-cooking . Make sure to let me know your thoughts relating to the matter.
