Ever get to the end of the month and start making weird things with what’s left in your pantry?
Ha, I do!
No like busting the budget, so we gotta use what we have.
And that’s what hubby was wanting to do when he stumbled on brown sugar muffins years ago.
Of course, we had to dabble with the recipe to make them dairy-free and egg-free.
Plus, we cut the sugar. Triple win!
Our version turned out delicious…
and we can’t wait to share the recipe with you.
We made this extra easy because the egg is replaced with the easiest option…
No flax egg or expensive boxed egg replacer needed.
Or use an egg if you can.
For dairy-free milk, I’ve used almond and coconut.
But I think any dairy-free milk should do. Yum, yum.
GLUTEN-FREE READER NOTE
Here’s how one reader made these brown sugar oatmeal muffins gluten-free.
“Hey Jamie! I wanted to thank you for this recipe for the basic brown sugar oat muffins and let you know we were able to make them gluten-free, as well! We used Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free 1:1 baking flour, and they tasted delicious!”
Thank you so much for doing this experiment and sharing the results with us, Rowena!
We sure appreciate that, and I’m sure our gluten-free readers will, as well.
Now here’s the easy muffin recipe below.
