Usually I make these with whole wheat pastry flour and our wonderful local yogurt. This morning I found out that this recipe also comes out perfectly with all purpose flour and almond milk! I was working to accommodate some special dietary requests for a guest (low fiber and dairy free) and found out this works perfectly with the changes. 20 oz (4 1/2 cups) all purpose flour 4 teaspoons baking powder 2 teaspoons baking soda 1/2 teaspoon sea salt 8 ounces (1 cup) organic cane sugar 1 cup vegetable oil (We use avocado) 2 large eggs 2 large …

A long-time guest and family favorite, this recipe will make 2 dozen large muffins. You can easily divide the recipe and only make half if you don't regularly feed large groups of people like we do here at the Rosemont.
