Mofo Muffins

It felt kinda weird making my first mofo post on Thursday and then waiting until Sunday to post the next one, but I don't like to post on weekends. I pledge to post every Sunday through Thursday night during Vegan Mofo III (except the week I'm away on vacation later this month). That's the best I can do. For me, weekends are for nightclubs, wine tastings, art shows, parties ... not blogging. But the weekend has come to an end, so here ya go ...

Last week, I baked up a batch of Mihl's Blueberry Muffins with White Chocolate Chips from Seitan Is My Motor:

Mihl posted the recipe (available here) several months ago, and I knew I had to make them! I've had half a bag of vegan white chocolate chips lurking in my pantry for awhile, and this sounded like the perfect excuse to use them up. Not to mention that I've been craving muffins for awhile.

Despite containing sinfully delicious white chocolate chips (the brand I had was made with all kinds of not-good-for-you ingredients), these tasty breakfast bites seem pretty healthy. I used whole wheat pastry flour instead of all-p, and the recipe only calls for a half-cup plus 2 tablespoons of sugar. I used Kroger brand frozen organic blueberries, and they were some of the plumpest berries I've seen!

Lucky for me, I froze most of the muffins to eat again for breakfast this week, accompanied by Whole Soy & Co. yogurt.

I'm participating in V Mo Fo for the 1st time and it's pretty freakin' cool. But not as cool as WHITE CHOCO chip muffies. Nice, very nice :) I wish I could come over and help you eat them. I just had a raw vegan epic dessert post on my blog yesterday and was sorely lacking in the muffy department.
