Light both in texture and in sweetness, these are, well, simply delish. Just sayin'. When your non-vegan friends will chow them down three at a time, you know you're doing *something* right!! I love the crumble and golden hue contributed by the millet flour, but I'm sure that wheat flour would work equally well.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 fahrenheit. Line a 12-cup muffin pan with papers.
  2. Combine the ground flax and water in a measuring cup, and whisk vigorously for about 2 minutes. Let this stand while you assemble the other ingredients. It will have become quite thick and gooey, and this is probably the very best egg substitute I know for vegan baked goods.
  3. Sift together the flours, sugar, baking power and soda in a large bowl. Add the wet ingredients (all but pom seeds), and mix till just moistened; as usual, over-mixing will lead to heavy muffins. Finally, fold in the pomegranate seeds, reserving a few for the muffin tops.
  4. Divide the batter equally in the prepared cups. Sprinkle five or six seeds on the top of each muffin, and pop 'em in the oven. 20-25 minutes should do it.
  5. Remove, toothpick-test, let cool on a rack, and enjoy warm with tea!
