- Monday, 08 August 2011
Our very own Katie, who is also a vegan chef, made these delicious lactation cupcakes for the Granola Babies Big Latch On. And upon request, here is both the original recipe, followed by Katies Vegan version.
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup regular oats
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
3 T heaping – flax seed meal
2-3 T heaping nutritional/brewers yeast
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup plain yogurt (could also use flavored but cut back the brown sugar)
dash of vanilla
1 large cup mashed ripe banana (about 2-3)
1 large egg
1/2 cup toasted shredded coconut (or more, could be closer to 1 cup)
3/4 cup chopped walnuts (or more)
1/2 cup finely chopped dried pineapple (or more)
Preheat oven to 350°.
Place 18-24 muffin cups liners in muffin cups.
Combine dry ingredients (through salt) in a large bowl and mix well...
