I’ve been baking a lot of muffins lately, and these vegan apple cinnamon muffins are my current favorite! They’re easy to whip up in one bowl and I love how they’re not too sweet, so I can enjoy them for breakfast without worrying about a sugar crash. You only need basic pantry ingredients for this vegan apple muffin recipe, and they’re completely plant-based! You’re going to love these for a quick snack. To make them even more filling, slice them in half and top each half with a smear of peanut butter! Or for a sweeter treat, try them with a dollop of apple butter on top.

Ingredients & Substitutions

  • Flour: All-purpose flour gives the muffins structure.
  • Leavening Agents: A combination of baking powder and baking soda help the muffins rise.
  • Spices: Ground cinnamon provides a warm flavor that complements the apples.
  • Sugar: Dark brown sugar adds sweetness. You could substitute for coconut sugar, if desired.
  • Oil: Avocado oil ensures a moist crumb. You could substitute for vegetable oil.
  • Almond Milk and Apple Cider Vinegar: These combine to create a vegan buttermilk substitute that makes the muffins soft and tender. You could substitute with white vinegar, if you don’t have apple cider vinegar. Any plant-based milk can be used.
  • Apples: The chopped apple provides a burst of natural sweetness. I used Fuji but any sweet red apple can be used. If you’d like a tart flavor, use Granny Smith apples.
