I was really craving muffins last night so I spent some time browsing through my favorite cookbook to get some ideas for the morning and decided on this muffin. This cookbook is so fantastic on levels! I found it at an antique store over a year ago and it quickly became my most used book because the recipes are incredibly reliable, probably because this book was published in 1956. There are some coupons in this book that make me think the original owner bought it around that time as well and I love coming across those sweet artifacts when browsing through it. I love using the recipes in this book as a base and then altering the recipes to be either vegan, gluten-free, or just my own. So this recipe is a veganized version of the Oatmeal Muffins on page 81 of this book. Combining vegan milk with apple cider vinegar makes for the perfect buttermilk substitute and the banana acts as an egg replacer. If you don’t have apple cider vinegar just use lemon juice. These muffins are very healthy and delicious but not drastically so in either direction. I ate two trying to decide if I would post the recipe and decided to share it before I consumed a third muffin.
