Vegan Hazelnut Muffins

If you have seen my post on nut milk, you will now know what to do with the left over pulp.   Don't let the word "vegan" scare you off please, these are just as good if not better than the conventional muffin.  These muffins are so incredibly moist, not to dense and packed with protein and fiber. There are plenty of variations with them too. I used hazelnuts as I had made hazelnut milk. However, any nut should work just fine I am sure. Try it and let me know how it is!
