Prepared, tried, and tested by Bobby Swanson

Most of the time she has salty cracks, but sometimes just sometimes I have a couple of minutes to spare.
During this spare time, I like to bake a muffin or a scone for her but most of the time, more times than I would like to mention, I hit a blank as to what I should bake for her.

Sometimes being a vegetarian has its disadvantages, especially in the muffin department.
I was lucky enough to get my hands on a copy of “The Joy of Vegan Baking,” by Colleen Patrick-Goudreau and there are a ton of recipes that are all up my mum’s street.

Trust me I plan to try and make every muffin recipe in that book, lol by the time I am finished with her, she will have muffins coming out of her ears or maybe a muffin top???
