I found this recipe in the "Get It Ripe" vegan cookbook by Jae Steele and all of the family LOVED them!!!
- Preheat oven to 375F. Prepare a 12 cup muffin tray with paper liners or a light coating of oil (I have silicone muffin trays so I didn't do either!)
- Whisk together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt in a large bowl. In a smaller bowl combine the raisins, apples, applesauce, milk, syrup, oil and vinegar (this will help rehydrate your raisins a little so they aren't so chewy)
- Add the liquids to the flour mixture and gently stir with a wooden spoon or silicone spatula until just combined.*
- Portion the batter into the muffin cups and bake for 20 to 22 minutes until the tops are golden brown and domed and a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean.
**Make sure you remove the muffins from the tray 5 minutes after they've been removed from the oven - this will ensure that humidity doesn't build up in the bases of your muffins and cause them to become 'gluey'.
***You can also add flax or poppy seeds or chopped almonds or walnuts to the batter as well!!!
