This recipe for vegan high fiber muffins was shared with us many years ago from the founder of Goodbaker. His company made healthy gourmet vegan baking mixes. Sadly, Goodbaker is no longer around, but his recipe will live on. These muffins are healthy, hearty, and make a fulfilling breakfast. Enjoy them with a little dairy-free buttery spread, or grab one on the go.
