Cooking from scratch is healthy, fun, and self-empowering. You decide what ingredients to use. My recipes feature lots of vegetables, spices, beans, whole grains, tofu, baked goods and desserts. All so tasty you won’t miss the meat, eggs or dairy. I do try to keep it healthy. I veer off-topic from time to time for reviews and things that catch my interest.

Vegan Blueberry Muffins with Struesel Topping
I found this recipe on the TheDailyGreen website. These are totally awesome – not too heavy, and the cake not too sweet. Of course, I had to fiddle around with the recipe. I used white whole wheat flour, cut the sugar by 1/4 cup and added some vanilla extract. And it was so good! I don't normally bake with Ener-G Egg Replacer but the recipe called for it and so I used it. It was fine. (For some reason I was afraid it would leave a "funny" taste.) I also have to note that with the crumb topping it was a bit too sweet for me. I'll probably leave it off next time and maybe add a couple tablespoons of the sugar back in. The original recipe says 12 servings but I only got 10. Four Stars.
For the original recipe go to TheDailyGreen website: http://www.thedailygreen.com/healthy-eating/cookbook/3378

Crumb topping: Mix ingredients until any large lumps are worked out. Sprinkle topping over muffin batter before baking.
Bake about 25 minutes, until the topping and the tops of the muffins are golden.
