These simple, healthy, vegan cornbread muffins are savory and rich.  Their hearty texture and hint of sweetness make them a perfect pairing for soups and stews.

Soak the flaxseed meal

Combine the flax meal and oat milk in a measuring cup or a small bowl, then set aside. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 400° F and grease or line the muffin tin(s).


Combine the dry ingredients

In a large bowl, whisk together the cornmeal, all-purpose flour, baking powder, and salt. Break up any lumps of baking soda or flour.



Combine the wet ingredients

Add the sunflower oil, molasses, and apple cider vinegar to the oat milk mixture. Mix well to combine.

Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients

Add the wet ingredient mixture to the dry ingredients.  Stir until combined; it's okay if the batter appears a bit lumpy.


Fill the muffin pan

Pour the cornbread muffin batter into the prepared muffin pan or pans. Distribute evenly to make twelve muffins.


Bake the muffins

Place the muffins into the preheated oven. Bake for about 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into a muffin comes out clean.
