Grainstorm vegan muffin mix

I never thought I’d make muffins the easy way–from a muffin mix–because they never compare to homemade, high quality muffins made from the love and hard work of a home baker. But when I found out that one of my favourite Toronto bakeries, LPK’s Culinary Groove, developed a new vegan muffin base with organic ancient grains, I couldn’t help but try it.

The muffin mix came in handy today when I wanted to bake some muffins for my co-workers, but I was out of flour. All I had to do was add some liquid ingredients: coconut oil, water, maple syrup, rice milk and a little apple cider vinegar. It was super easy! I fought the urge to play around with the ingredients like I always do because I wanted to see how they came out when I followed the directions on the package. I did, however, customize the basic muffin base with a little extra flavour: 2 cups of fresh raspberries and 1/2 cup of shredded coconut.

The result? Delicious and nutritious muffins that are full of rustic, grainy goodness and bursting with complex flavours and textures, thanks to the fresh, hand-milled blend of organic spelt, kamut and oat kernals. This is a superb product that makes high quality whole foods simple and easy. It is also cane sugar- and nut-free! This mix makes about 16 muffins and they freeze well. I can’t wait to try it again with new flavour additions. You can buy the mix online or from LPK’s bakery in Toronto’s Leslieville neighbourhood.
