Note: My goal with this recipe was to create a muffin that was high in fiber, and had a good omega 3/6/9 ratio These have an approximate ratio of 3:2:6, respectively. I’ve included the nutritional info below (which will only vary by which brand of soymilk you use. This nutritional info is based on using wild oats brand, very similar to whole foods “365” refrigerated soymilk.):
