Love those Sunday mornings…

3 Oct

I love Sunday mornings. After sleeping in (a little), there’s nothing better than whipping up a big breakfast with eggs (or tofu scramble), vegan sausage, fruit, and muffins or scones. It’s a great way to start the last day of the weekend.

This past weekend, we squeezed in a camping trip to Maumee Bay State Park. Far enough away to consider it a vacation, but not so far away that we couldn’t get back this morning in time for some Hornets football action. Though the weather didn’t really cooperate — cold, rainy and very windy — we still had fun. I was nice to have some time with nothing else to do but take a nature hike, play games and watch movies with the kids.

Our big breakfast included these delicious muffins. My kids went nuts over them. Moist, not too sweet, and good for you! As for me…they were the perfect compliment to a piping hot cup of coffee (decaf, of course!).

Lemon-Blueberry Muffins
makes 12 muffins

1 Ener-G Egg Replacer (or 1 egg)
1-1/2 cups white whole wheat flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup agave (or maple syrup)
1/2 cup So Delicious unsweetened coconut milk
1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cup fresh or frozen blueberries

TOPPING:
1/4 cup brown sugar
3 tablespoons flour
2 tablespoons Earth Balance, softened
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Coat 12 muffin cups with nonstick spray.

Make the Ener-G egg per package instructions for 1 egg. Set aside.

Combine flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder in a large bowl. In a small bowl, whisk together the vegetable oil, agave, coconut milk, lemon zest, vanilla and egg. Add to dry ingredients and mix well. Fold in blueberries. Divide the batter evenly between the muffin cups.

Make crumb topping: Mix sugar, flour, butter and cinnamon with a fork until crumbly. Sprinkle topping over muffin batter.

Bake 20-25 minutes or until the topping is golden brown. Enjoy!

Here are my cuties munching on the muffins while still in their jammies. It was too nasty outside to even have our awning open or eat at the picnic table!
