Combine the wet ingredients with the dry ingredients and stir until just mixed. Add
1 cup chopped walnuts
and fold into the batter.

Fill the cups of a lightly oiled 12-muffin tin with the batter. You should have enough batter to fill each cup to the top. Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 25 minutes.


  1. Out of the oven last night and had it for breakfast, yum! Added some cinnamon and used frozen bananas for a flavor boost

  2. How many cups of okara equals 8 oz? Thanks!

    1. Approximately 1 cup is equal to 8 ounces. I use ounces because it is more accurate.

  3. Thank you for posting this recipe. Just tried to make soy milk, didn't work so well but I have all this OKARA stuff, looks great, I will make this recipe. I am going to try again to make the soy milk.

  4. I made a double batch of these today and I like them. Thanks for sharing.

    1. I'm glad you liked them! This is one of my favorite okara recipes.
