Important Tips:

Because this recipe is so low in fat and calories…we can afford a bit of ‘Nutty Indulgence’. Our muffins are vegan and made without added fat or eggs. We use prune puree to replace 100% of the usually added fat. We use flax eggs instead of traditional eggs. Before working the liquid ingredients, we simply buzz one tablespoon of flax seeds with 1/3 cup of water in a small personal blender and let it sit while combining the remaining liquid ingredients. For the almonds, I pulsed whole almonds in my small blender and added them with the dried cherries to the dry ingredients.That will keep the fruit and nuts from falling to the bottom during baking.Nutrition Analysis, per serving: one muffinCalories 215, Protein 6g, Carbohydrate 274g, Fiber 4g, Sugars 20g, Fat 4g, Sat Fat 0g, Cholesterol 0mg, Calcium 99mg, Sodium 185mg.
