vegan savoury muffins

vegan savoury muffins | jammiejammieblog.wordpress.comDay 10: Savoury muffins make a great breakfast or brunch dish, of course, but I love having a tray handy for digging into any time, really. This is a vegan version and I am excited to be baking vegan goodies that actually taste good. When I first started this blog a year ago, I wanted to post my tried and tested recipes, but it is fun to be doing completely new things for the Vegan Challenge month. A big thank you to bloggers like Oh She Glows and Lighthearted Kitchen for providing inspiration! Like all muffins, these are loaded with bicarbonate of soda and baking powder to make them rise, but their strong flavours disguise the chemical taste well. Let me know if you enjoy them, too! PS See youtube for tips on how to line your muffin tin very quickly and easily.

1 small onion, finely chopped

half a red pepper, finely chopped

Put the linseed in a cup with 3 tbsps of warm water and stir well.

Put the cornmeal, flour, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda and salt in a roomy bowl.

Spoon into the lined muffin tin and sprinkle with seeds.
