Veganism is a healthy way of living that helps one to stay energized and vitalized; feeling strong and light. I decided to go vegan because I couldn’t digest foods like milk and dairy products. Which before were making me feel clogged up, bloated and lethargic. Five years in and I’m feeling better than ever.
One of my favourite snacks to have are bran muffins. They are both delicious and healthy. These are yummy, sweet and very easy to make. Turn your music on and let’s make magic!
Preparation time: 15 minutes

1/4 cup vegetable oil (I used Canola Oil)
For an egg replacement 1 tbsp flax
1 tbsp vinegar (white vinegar or apple cider vinegar)
