The lavender muffins turned out beautifully! They are just sweet enough: a beautiful balance of vanilla and lavender. The taste is like a little bit of edible springtime. Yum yum yum!
Want the recipe?
I started out with Lovely Lavender Muffins from Very Hungry Vegans.
I adapted it though because I thought the maple syrup would overpower the lavender. So, I used about a quarter to a third of a cup of agave nectar instead. I would have preferred honey but my jar was running low and I need it for my tea tomorrow. The agave did quite nicely and keeps the recipe strictly plant-based. I also opted for a heaping tablespoon of coconut oil rather than a full 1/3 cup of oil. (With all the apple sauce in the recipe, I suspect it may be possible to skip the oil altogether.) I don’t measure vanilla extract because I love it and one tablespoon would never be enough for me!
Whether you stick to the original or use my adaptations (or your own) I am certain you will find lavender muffins to be delightful. Added bonus, your house will smell amazing!

Thanks, I’m going to my coop tomorrow – I’m going to see if I can get some lavender flowers or maybe they’ll have lavender herbal tea. I printed out the recipe – I can’t wait to try it!
Cool! Let me know how they turn out Jodi and if you made any changes.
