made at home: vegan "eggnog" mini-muffins




"Eggnog" Mini-Muffins
  • 1 cup of soynog (or other non-dairy eggnog)
  • 2 teaspoons of vinegar
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla abstract
  • 1/4 cup of maple syrup
  • 1 1/2 cup of flour
  • 1/4 cup of wheat germ
  • 3/4 cup of raw sugar
  • 1/4 tsp of baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon of sea salt 
  • 1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg

"Eggnog" Ganache 
  • 10 oz. vegan chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup soynog 

   Whisk soynog with vinegar and set aside. Combine all dry ingredients in a large bowl. Add maple syrup and vanilla to soynog mixture. Take the liquid mixture and quickly mix with the dry ingredients, just until fully combined. Grease a mini-muffin pan and spoon in mixture into the sections. Bake at 350 degrees for 14-16 minutes. 
     For the ganache, bring the soynog to almost a boil on the stove top. Bring off the heat and whisk in the chocolate chips until melted. Let cool slightly, then dip the mini-muffins into the ganache to top. 



    So, I haven't posted a vegan recipe in awhile since becoming a vegetarian, so I decided to bake without dairy for this recipe. Even in my earlier years of eating dairy and eggs, I have never been a fan of actual eggnog, so soynog has always been my go-to. These muffins are so moist, full of spices and flavor, and even sweeter with the eggnog ganache. This would be a perfect holiday party snack to bring, or even to enjoy at home.
