1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 tablespoon pure vanilla
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup white sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon fresh grated nutmeg

your favorite strusel mix of oats, flour, sugar & spices mixed with a fat (Earth Balance in our house)
1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Grease muffin cups or line with paper muffin liners.
2. In a medium bowl, combine soymilk and oats; let soak for 15 minutes.
3. In a small bowl, beat together egg and oil; stir in oatmeal mixture. In a third bowl, sift together flour, sugar, baking powder, flax meal, spices and salt. Stir flour mixture into wet ingredients, just until combined. Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups until cups are 2/3 full (less than 1/4 cup per muffin). Top with strusel.
4. Bake in preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean.
