Healthy Vegan Morning Glory Muffins

Jump To Recipe
Muffin muffins…how much I love you…let me count the ways! Did I say that right? It doesn’t matter….you got the point. I adore muffins…and I’m talking about homemade packed with goodness muffins…not those cardboard tasting ones they sell in the coffee shop chains. For me a muffin has to be bursting with whatever you chose to make it with….fresh fruit, dried fruit, nuts, coconut…and oh that crumble topping. A muffin is not a muffin without the crumble topping….am I right or am I right?
Now these muffins you might think are a bit “overpacked”…and I can totally understand that when looking at the list of ingredients you’re going to want to run away. But let me tell you something…first off, they are totally worth the effort. Secondly, they are packed full of goodness, and thirdly you can certainly leave out some of the ingredients. I don’t mean leaving out the flour or baking soda…I mean only using 1 type of oats, only using carrot instead of both carrot and apple. However, if you plan ahead and make the recipe in stages it won’t feel so overwhelming. So start off by making the topping the day before and storing it in the fridge. Measure out your dry ingredients and mix them in a bowl and cover them. Also the pecans and coconut, have them ready to go all measured out. How about making your apple sauce and keeping it in the fridge?
The next day you just need to make your flax egg, curdled almond milk, and measure out the rest of the wet ingredients and you’re all set….delicious warm out of the oven muffins that will make your morning truly glorious!
