“I came up with this because I couldn’t find easy baked-goods recipes for vegans,” says Laurie Dolan, a California resident and a mother of two boys. “I saw in a PETA newsletter a while back that you could substitute applesauce and baking powder for eggs, so I started experimenting with basic cookie, cake, and muffin recipes. One of my favorite results was this blueberry muffin recipe.”
