Additional comments:

-----------------------------------------------------



I actually use this recipe to make 9 muffins as I fill mine right to the top so I get awesome muffin tops.



The recipe should be quite dry, not at all runny, so add more flour depending on how moist your stewed fruit is and how the batter is looking.



These are really close in texture to normal muffins to me. I could be wrong - it's been a while



If you want it to be healthier, just leave out the chocolate. You may need to add a touch more sugar as it adds quite a lot of sweetness to them.

Maybe you can get your hands on the Australien brand Sweet William at an online shop. They produce a vegan white chocolate bar, that really tastes good (IMO).

I know it seems heaps, but you can't taste anything, and it keeps the muffins really light, as opposed to little blocks of moist flour.

I used Sweet William, and am not sure of it's availability in America. It sounds like the one thing we guys get that you don't

I guess I'll risk the amount of baking powder then, lol.



As for availability of vegan stuff in the US: usually I'm quite envious of what Americans are able to buy when it comes to vegan food. I didn't expect there wouldn't be a white vegan chocolate. Wow. I guess I'm lucky that the Sweet William brand is available in Germany (only online shops though AFAIK but we can get it). I also like their chocolate spread.

There seem to be some vegan foods of which you can get a wider variety in Germany, chocolate may be one. Even Aldi sells about five varieties of vegan (dark) chocolate (Moser Roth brand), try the orange-almond some time

Bonvita makes a white vegan (rice milk) chocolate too, which is available at Basic stores and some other organic supermarkets. Worked great in chocolate chip cookies.



Thanks for an interesting recipe, Coley. Rhubarb and white chocolate sound like a perfect match.

I tried the Bonvita brand, both the plain and the cranberry kind. I didn't think they were that tasty and they're more expensive that the SW one. I baught the Bonvita brand once because the cocoa is fair trade but I didn't really like it while I think the SW brand tastes great.



I like the Rapunzel chocolate. I think Nirvana Noir is the name.



I think I have to shop at ALDI again. I don't shop there often because Penny is the nearest discounter where I live but orange-almond chocolate... hmmmmm...

And I just heard that their soy schnitzel and nuggets are vegan now too (used to have eggwhite in them), so there are even more vegan foods to buy at Aldi than just plain tofu, soy milk and chocolate...



(sorry, didn't mean to hijack the thread)

Yes, they've become vegan a while ago and they taste quite good. The "Vegetaria" brand at tegut is very yummie but not vegan. I won't give up hope that they take out the eggwhite though. Happened after all with the ALDI stuff.



Err, maybe we should start a thread named "German vegan yummieness" or something, lol.
