  • I can't love this recipe enough. It has finally put beans into my vegetarian son's diet! Very moist. Instead of pureeing the beans first, i whizzed all wet things into a food processor, then added all the dry stuff - easy! I used spelt flour, soy milk, olive oil, and a teaspoon of ginger powder. - 8/25/12

  • For Zaezae: nayonaise is a vegan alternative to mayonnaise. If you are allergic to soy, this product isn't for you. - 8/2/11

    I love it. I will try these. Since I know that black bean & sauerkraut make convincing chocolate cupcakes, apple muffins should be an easy sell. More muffins with beans!! - 12/11/08
