This is a standard muffin recipe that I like to play around with a lot.  I had no sugar in the house but did have two large squeeze bottles of agave from Costco (which by the way is the best deal in town for the stuff-2 x 480 ml bottles for $9!). These muffins are filled with sweet lemon flavour with bursts of tangy berries in every bite while hearty spelt flour gives them weight and packs them full of fibre.  Enjoy!


1 cup whole wheat flour

1 1/2 cups spelt flour

1 tablespoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 teaspoons ground ginger

1 cup unsweetened non-dairy milk

1/2 cup agave nectar

1 teaspoon vanilla

1/2 cup sunflower oil

1 cup of berries (i used a frozen blend of blueberries, raspberries and marionberries)

Juice and zest of 2 lemons


Preheat oven to 375 F

Mix together all dry ingredients plus the lemon zest in a large mixing bowl.  In a smaller bowl, mix together non-dairy milk, lemon juice, agave, oil and vanilla.  Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix just to blend.  Add the berries and then spoon into a lightly greased muffin tin and bake for 22-25 minutes, depending on size of muffins.

Makes 6 extra large or 10 regular sized muffins.

This past weekend, The Vegan Project had our very own little Bake Shoppe inside a wonderful bazaar called The Village Project.  This was our first time promoting The Vegan Project at a public event and we are happy to say that it went very well!  We had a great response and people were very interested in chatting with us about veganism and our experience.  We spent many hours baking our favourite treats to sell and we sold them all!  We made chocolate chip cookies, walnut date oatmeal cookies, tiny chocolate cupcakes, peanut butter rice crispy treats, german chocolate cake, and gluten free sugar cookies.  Someone even said that our little booth was their favourite, not that it was a contest, but it filled our hearts with joy.

Here is  a short video to show you just how freakin magical the whole thing was:

Hope to see you at the next one!
