Okara muffins

After making my own soymilk on the weekend I was left with quite a lot of okara (the mushy leftover soybeans!) and i was debating what to do with it.
Okara is very nutrient dense so I decided to have some fun & make sure that it got used up!

Chocolate Okara Muffins
1 cup okara
1/4 cup vegetable oil (your choice which one)
1/2 cup soymilk
3/4 cup applesauce
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 cups plain flour
1/4 cup cocoa
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder

Stir the wet ingredients into a large bowl with the okara. In a separate bowl combine the dry ingredients.
Fold the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients - be careful not to overmix as this can make the muffins too dense.
Lightly spray a muffin tin. (makes 10-12 muffins depending on how much of a muffin top you want!!!!)
Pour the mixture into the prepared tin.
If desired, sprinkle with coconut shreds for decoration.
Bake for 20 minutes in a moderate oven.
