Vegan Polenta Muffins

    20 min

    These vegan muffins are also sweetened with agave nectar, which is lower on the Glycaemic Index than other sugars. Try adding berries for a tasty and pretty touch. You can also use plain wholemeal flour instead of the regular plain flour, or 30g of each.

    FANTASTIC! I used stone ground cornmeal and regular whole wheat flour (not pastry). These took longer than 20 minutes. Used 1% dairy milk - didn't have soy, and did use maple syrup instead of agave. We had to make a second batch right away because we ate the first six muffins so fast!!! I served with Pumpkin Turkey Chili (used morningstar ground beef substitute for turkey) and topped all with reduced fat cheddar cheese. Heaven!!!  -  22 Sep 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
