Vegan Carrot Bran Muffins or Bread

This Vegan Carrot Bran Muffin recipe features carrots which lend sweet, buttery notes. These flavors are further enhanced by just the right amount of molasses and your choice of wheat germ, wheat bran or oat bran. Raisins are added for additional sweetness and flavor depth and a touch of vanilla extract ties the flavors together into a dense and hearty muffin.

Vegan Carrot Bran Muffin Recipe

¾ cup non-dairy milk
2 Tablespoons Egg Replacer Powder
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar

1 cup whole wheat flour
½ cup all-purpose flour
1 ½ cups wheat germ, wheat bran or oat bran
1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda

1 ½ cups shredded carrot (about 3 medium sized carrots)
½ cup sugar
½ cup vegetable oil
3 Tablespoons molasses
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon salt

1 cup raisins

1) Curdle your non-dairy milk

Preheat your oven to 325F (163C). In a medium bowl, whisk together non-dairy milk, Eggless Binder Powder and apple cider vinegar. Let it sit for about 10 minutes so the non-dairy milk curdles.

2) Whisk together the dry ingredients

In a large mixing bowl whisk together the whole wheat flour, wheat germ, wheat bran or oat bran, baking powder and baking soda. 

3) Prepare your carrots

Shred the carrots and set aside. 

4) Whisk together the flavor building ingredients

In a medium size mixing bowl, whisk together the shredded carrots, sugar, vegetable oil, molasses, vanilla extract and salt.  Whisk in the non-dairy milk, Eggless Binder Powder and apple cider vinegar mixture.

5) Build the batter

Pour the wet ingredients into the bowl containing the dry ingredients and mix until just incorporated. Stir in the raisins.

6) Bake to perfection

These muffins are what I've been dreaming of ever since I became vegan. Next time I'll make giant ones that are even better than the muffins I can no longer eat at my favourite muffin restaurant. One comment. I had to add nearly a cup more liquid. I used soya milk. I think the recipe might need tweaking or the oat bran I used needed more liquid.

This is a great recipe . I modified it slightly by using applesauce in place of the oil and added cinnamon and nutmeg for extra flavour.

Will save for future!

This is a good recipe, thanks! I will make it again but with a couple small changes: I found it a bit too sweet, not surprising really since carrots, sugar and molasses all add sweetness. Next time I will use only one-quarter cup of sugar. The other changes that I made the first time around are routine for me: I used one-quarter cup of oil because you don't really taste the additional oil and it just adds calories, and I used a flax egg.

Outrageously Good!

I served these to 3 carnivores who could not believe they were vegan! I added generous dash of ground cinnamon and ginger. YUM! I will be making these every 12 days to have a healthy quick on hand breakfast. THANKS for a great recipe!
