Dairy-Free Apricot-Ginger Muffins


The milk typically called for in quick-bread recipes is replaced here by vanilla soymilk. If you’re not a fan of candied ginger, feel free to omit it from the recipe.

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 Tbs. grated orange zest
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt

Whisk together flour, orange zest, baking powder, and salt in bowl. Whisk sugar and eggs until creamy in separate bowl. Add soymilk, oil, and orange juice, and whisk until smooth. Fold egg mixture into flour mixture. Stir in dried apricots and 1/4 cup candied ginger.

Scoop batter into prepared pan(s). Sprinkle top(s) with reserved candied ginger.
