Peach Blueberry Muffins Vegan Style

Veg.with.Lisa's picture
These muffins are so wholesome and tasty your morning coffee will never be the same. This recipe is very adaptable – feel free to use any combination of fruit and nuts. You can use white or whole grain flour, or a combination of both. I like to use whole spelt flour, or whole-wheat pastry flour for a lighter whole-grain muffin. These muffins are very moist so they won’t last more than a couple of days on the counter. But not to worry, they also freeze really well.
