VEGAN MUFFIN RECIPES WITHOUT OIL
Contrary to what many may think or are used to, you do not need oil for successful baking. Creating vegan muffin recipes without oil is totally delicious and possible. Does it make it a bit more challenging? Yes, definitely. But, I’m a very experienced baker and have been baking oil-free for many, many years. Because of this, I no longer find it intimidating and love sharing these oil-free tricks with you! Check out my guide on How to Cook and Bake Without Oil. Do not confuse oil-free with fat-free, not the same. I use fats for richness and texture in my baked goods, so they are never lacking in flavor or texture.
Even low-fat desserts can be amazing, if the ratios and right moisture ingredients are properly used. This collection will show you some delicious vegan muffin recipes that you can be assured are amazing, crowd-pleasing and well tested!

Your recipes are the ONLY ones I will make when it comes to baking!!!!!”
