Everything You Need to Make Vegan Apple Muffins
You might think that making vegan apple muffins would require a special list of hard-to-find ingredients—thankfully, that’s wrong. 😉 Today’s apple muffins can be made with common ingredients found in any pantry, or, for an alternative, common ingredients found in a gluten free vegan pantry.
- Oat flour or all purpose flour – you can easily make your own gluten free oat flour
- Vegan butter or coconut oil
- Ground cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg
- Coconut sugar + maple syrup
- Flax eggs
- Vanilla + Almond Extract
- Baking soda + baking powder
How to Make Vegan Apple Muffins
Learn how to make vegan apple cinnamon muffins with just a few simple steps.
First, preheat the oven to 350°F. Grab a 12-cup muffin pan and place muffins liners into each crevice. Don’t forget, this is a great time to start the flax egg since it needs to set for 10 minutes.
Prep the Dry Ingredients
Second, add all the dry ingredients to a medium mixing bowl. The dry ingredients in this apple muffin mix include flour, baking soda, baking powder, ground cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, and salt. Whisk these ingredients until they’re well mixed.
Prep the Wet Ingredients
Third, add the wet ingredients to a large mixing bowl. The wet ingredients include coconut oil, coconut sugar, maple syrup, a modified flax egg, vanilla, and almond extract. Whisk everything together until well incorporated.
Fourth, it’s time to combine the dry and wet ingredients! Start by pouring the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients bowl. Make sure to get every little bit. Now, grab a whisk to whisk both components together as long as you can. When it gets difficult to stir, switch to stirring and folding with a rubber spatula until no flour patches remain. You’ve just made your vegan apple muffin batter!
Fold in Apples
Fifth, to finish the batter, fold in the grated apples. Don’t worry about being gentle here—you’ll be folding and mashing the apples into the muffin batter. This will get the apple juices to flow a bit and moisten up your muffins. Now, fold in the chopped walnuts.
Scoop & Bake
Grab a large scoop, then scoop and drop muffin batter into each muffin liner. You’ll add larger amount of muffin batter into the liners if you want sky-high muffins; you’ll add less muffin batter for smaller muffins.
Place the muffin tray into the oven and bake for about 28 minutes.
Cool & Enjoy
Cool and enjoy the best vegan apple muffins!
What to Serve with Vegan Apple Cinnamon Muffins
One of my favorite things to serve warm vegan apple cinnamon muffins with? Vegan vanilla ice cream. The cool, creamy texture pairs so well with the muffins, creating a morning treat that’s almost like apple pie for dessert. I sometimes like to wash it all down with a glass of super refreshing cucumber mint water.
You can also try splitting your fresh-baked apple muffins in half and spreading your favorite nut or seed butter on top. Try homemade cashew butter, almond butter, or as a special treat, pecan butter.
Another fun thing to try: bake up a batch of zucchini oatmeal cookies, yummy healthy breakfast bars, and the most incredible, fluffiest vegan buttermilk pancakes alongside your vegan apple muffins for a homemade breakfast buffet. 🙂 😋
