JUST MADE THESE AN THEY WERE YUMMMMMMMMMMMMY!!!

I'm only interested in trying "tried-and-true" or "personal favorites" recipes from these boards, so this was a great one to start with... there's way too many "cut and paste" recipes posted that I have no idea if they're any good or not.

THANKS!
*off to have my muffins and mug of my favorite Chai tea...*

...yum.
everyone should definitely try these...they are tasty, healthy and just the right consistency. I used a small pack of applesauce instead of Ener-G (I've never really liked the weird powdery egg replacers) and it worked fine! These are a total hit...

I'm hoping someone knows of vegan cinnachips? I've seen some Hershey ones at the market, but they had something "unvegan" (milk, I think) in them.

They come out really moist with a great texture and rise up really nice. I would think these would be really good with walnuts as well. I am going to google now to see if I can find vegan cinnamon chips.

Reserved 2 tbsp/30mL prepared Chai Latte from cake recipe

Wow, this sounds so yummie! I'm gonna do them tomorrow on my birthday if I find the time.

So.. you can leave the cinnamon chips out, eh? because they don't seem to exist in Germany. /: but I'm gonna ask for them at the end of the month, when I'm in London! *_*

PS: What does this mean: "Top up with more soy milk BACK to 3/4 cup." - does this mean, another 3/4 cup?

Sorry it means that your milk will boil down to less that 3/4 cup and you need to add more milk as necessary to bring it back up to 3/4 cup.

I made these, but since I had chai soymilk, I used that instead of using the tea bags. I also made the glaze. They were good, my omni bf liked them a lot too!
