One of the most requested foods my oldest son asks me to bake when he comes home from college to visit is a big batch of muffins. From pumpkin muffins to blueberry muffins to banana chocolate chip muffins, I’m always happy to oblige my son!  With limited cooking skills, he’s very grateful – at least I think that’s him saying “thank you” with his mouth stuffed full of my newest muffin Vegan Chai Tea Spiced Apple MuffinsVegan Chai Apple Muffins

These are perfect to make ahead for quick breakfasts and snacks, plus they freeze fabulously – so of course extra were made to send back to college. Read on to get the full recipe and the cookbook that inspired these easy vegan muffins. 

Chai Tea Spiced Apple Muffins beckon with the scent and taste of chai spices. Perfect to make-ahead for a quick breakfast or snack. Vegan friendly.

With apples in full harvest, it was natural to stop on the page that said “Spiced Apple Muffins” in the copy of a cookbook recently sent to me for review — The Quick and Easy Vegetarian College Cookbook: 300 Healthy, Low-Cost Meals That Fit Your Budget and Schedule. I really appreciated the no-nonsense approach of this cookbook that offers simple, easy, quick recipes to make eating healthy a viable option while away at school. Spanning breakfast to dinner and soups to snacks, many of the recipes in this comprehensive collection can even be made without a fully-equipped kitchen.

So, after making muffins inspired by one of the recipes (you know I had to switch it up a bit, that’s how I roll), I’m going to give a batch to my son along with the cookbook. He’s 20 years old, in his first apartment and a novice cook who is trying to eat better – after two years of dorm cafeteria food, he tells me how ready he is to make his own wholesome snacks and meals.

So, back to the muffins – they are superb and I must say my idea of adding chia spice was, well, satisfyingly spicy! I used Granny Smith apples in the recipe because I like the tart taste, but there are many apples that hold up well for baking – Check out this post which names the Top 10 Baking ApplesTheFitFork.com - Apples

I hope you get a chance to make the muffins and also check out the Quick and Easy Vegetarian College Cookbook – of course, it’s not JUST for college students, it has a mix of vegetarian and vegan recipes that appeal to anyone on a budget.

What is your favorite flavor of muffin? Do you have a variety of apple you like to bake with best? Do your older kids cook and is it edible – haha! Please share in the comments , XOXO — Jennifer
