  1. This sounds amazing! I wonder if I can turn this into a muffin. And its true, vegan dough is totally the best part about the baking process! 🙂

    • Thanks for checking out my blog! I bet this recipe would make a great muffin. It is quite dense though so you may have to play around a little bit in order to have a fluffy muffin. Hope you enjoy!

      • Yeah, I could tell from your photos that it makes a dense bread! I’ll see what I can do to fluff it up a bit.
