Recipe Notes

* To make these muffins vegan, all you need to replace is the one egg with a flax egg.  Just add one tablespoon ground flaxseed meal (I use this brand) with 3 tablespoons of water. Mix together with a spoon, and let sit for 5-10 minutes to set up and thicken. Then, add to the recipe as you would an egg.  See?  Super easy.
