Vegan Rye Bread Muffins

I had quite a time finding this recipe. Most rye breads you buy in the store have wheat flour in the ingredients list above rye flour, so it is more wheat bread than rye! Are you shocked as I was? Plus, it's hard to find the bread (rye or otherwise) without high fructose corn syrup and unhealthy oils, so I wanted to make our own.

The other shocker for me in finding such this recipe was finding a rye recipe without yeast, eggs or milk. This recipe tastes wonderful with fresh organic butter spread on with fruit or fruit spread.

I am reprinting this recipe from

Rye Muffins

We serve these at dinner time in place of bread, biscuits or dinner rolls. Milk, wheat & egg free.

1 1/4 c. rye flour

1/2 c. rice flour (use the kind from the Asian market--its cheaper & less gritty)

4 tsp. baking powder

3/4 tsp. salt

1/4 c. sugar

1 c. water

1/4 c.oil

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. If desired, line muffin tins with paper liners. In a large bowl, mix rye flour, rice flour, baking powder, and salt together. Mix water, oil & sugar separately and add to the dry mixture. Blend well. Fill muffin tins about 3/4 full and bake for about 25 minutes, or until cake tester inserted in center comes out clean. Makes 12 muffins.

From the original post recipe, improvise as such. Take about 40 cranberries, wash and cut in half. Soak in 1 cup orange juice. This juice substitutes the water. No need to add water.

Would it not be too much sodium with the qty of baking powder specified?
