Vegan Pumpkin Muffins

Last year we spent Thanksgiving in Texas with family, which includes my cousin and his wife whom have been vegan for years. So the challenge was to find a vegan recipe that would not only wow the vegans, but the non-vegans as well.

Vegan Pumpkin Muffins

This recipe definitely did just that, and these goodies have now become a regular addition to our Thanksgiving meal. The muffins are soft, moist, and flavorful and the common reaction is, “These are so good, I never would have guessed they were vegan!”

Happy Thanksgiving!

1 3/4 cups flour
1 1/4 cups sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon ginger
1/4 teaspoon allspice
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
1 cup pureed pumpkin (fresh or from a can)
1 tablespoon soy yogurt
1/2 cup soymilk
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 tablespoons molasses

Preheat oven to 400 F. Grease muffin tins with vegetable shortening or spray on oil.

Sift together dry ingredients (flour through cloves). In a separate bowl, wisk together wet ingredients (pumpkin through molasses). Pour wet into dry and combine. Fill muffin tins 2/3 of the way. Bake for 15-20 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
