Prep Instructions

  • Yield: 12 servings
  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Cook Time: 20-30 minutes
  • Total Time: 30-40 minutes

Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 cup unsweetened soy milk
  • 1 tablespoon golden flax meal
  • 3 tablespoons applesauce
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 cup fine whole grain cornmeal
  • 1/2 cup white whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Prepare muffin pans or an 8-inch square dish, preferably with nonstick cooking spray or silicone.
  3. Mix the first 5 ingredients together and set aside.
  4. Combine all dry ingredients.
  5. When the oven is fully heated, mix wet and dry ingredients together just enough to moisten.
  6. Bake 25 minutes (8x8-inch pan) or 20 minutes (muffins), until bread starts to brown on the edges and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

NOTE: If your baking powder is old or has been around moisture, it will not work as well, so it is important to always use fresh baking powder. Buy it in smaller containers if you don’t use it often.
