Vegan Agave Cornbread Muffins


"This vegan cornbread is made with whole-wheat flour and sweetened with agave syrup. It got votes as being better than traditional cornbread muffins by my anti-vegan roommates! They can also be made macrobiotic if you substitute the agave with maple syrup."

This recipe is okay, and the muffins certainly do come out moist. But for me, there was too much salt, not enough flavor. It might be better if I used vanilla soy, but I'm looking for somethin...

I tend to rate up on this site and I rarely give 5 star reviews. This recipe however, is one of the few recipes on this site that truly deserves 5 stars. It is low fat, low calorie, vegan, sug...

I made 2 batches of these last night. Everyone loved them. So much better than I expected. Definitely on the sweet side with the agave nectar. I used stone ground corn meal and whole wheat flour...
