Customizable Vegan Muffins - Choose Your Own Adventure!

When you have picky eaters at home, it can be difficult to decide on a recipe that everyone loves!  That’s why these “choose your own adventure” vegan muffins are perfect.  Start with a simple, proven base recipe, and let the kids (and the adults) throw in whatever ingredients they like!  Fruit, chocolate chips, nuts – it all works to make for a moist, light muffin that all the people in your family will enjoy.
