"it Still Feels Like Winter" Vegan Oatmeal Muffins

Total Time
Prep 20 mins
Cook 20 mins

A hearty moist oatmeal muffin that "sticks to your ribs". I cooked this up one cold wet rainy spring morning when I needed something to really warm me up.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Put the water, vinegar and salt in a blender.
  2. Add 1/4 cup of the walnuts (reserve the other 1/4 cup to add to the batter later).
  3. Blend this mixture on high for about a minute. This is your nice, slightly nutty tasting "buttermilk" for your muffins.
  4. Pour your walnut "milk" into a large bowl. Add the oats and stir to blend. Let set about 10 minutes.
  5. Add the applesauce, brown sugar and margarine to the oatmeal mixture. Mix well.
  6. In a medium sized bowl, mix the flour, baking soda and baking powder together. Add these dry ingredients to the wet oatmeal mixture. Mix until well blended.
  7. Stir in the raisins and remaining walnuts. Spoon mixture into muffin tins.
  8. Bake at 350 for 15 to 20 minutes.
  9. Cool and Serve!

I added extra raisins, & they were very good. I thought it would rise a little better than it did (only reason I didn't give it 5 stars), but very tasty. Will make again.<br/>Made for Spring PAC 2013.

Very good. I love the use of the walnut "milk"-- it really adds a nice flavor to the batter. I didn't have any ww flour or raisins, so I used ap flour and skipped the raisins. As a result, the muffins were very tasty but not very sweet. I drizzled a tiny bit of honey on them and they were great with a cup of tea! Thanks for the recipe!
