Best Ever Vegan Morning Muffins

I am always looking for something quick and easy to take to work for breakfast on the days I have to be there really early. These muffins are a great for that. They are easy to make too. Yea there are a lot of ingredients but they are so worth it.

Here is what you will need:
Wet Ingredients:
2 tbsp ground flax
6 tbsp warm water
1 cup of unsweetened applesauce
1 tbsp freshly grated ginger
3/4 cup organic sugar
1/4 cup oil of your choice (I use extra virgin olive oil)
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup grated carrots
1/2 cup grated zucchini

Dry Ingredients:
2 cups organic flour of your choice
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup chopped walnuts (optional)

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

Combine the flax and water and let it sit for about five minutes. The flax will absorb the water and this will act as the egg. And it's great for your heart too.

Next, combine all of the wet ingredients and set aside.

Combine all of the dry ingredients except for the walnuts.

Add about a third of the dry mix to the wet mix and stir only til combined. Repeat until everything is combined. Add the walnuts and mix till combined.

You can use any kind of muffin pan you like for baking. If you do not use liners, just be sure to oil you pan lightly. Fill your prepared pan about 2/3 full. You should get about 8 muffins in a regular size pan. Bake for about 15 - 20 minutes. The time depends on your oven and how full your pan is. The muffins will be done when an inserted toothpick comes out clean.

These are really great with morning tea or coffee.
