Thanks for the recipe and photo, Vegan Gretchen!


2 Cups Flour

½ Cup Granulated Sugar

½ Cup Brown Sugar

½ Teaspoon Ground Nutmeg

⅛ teaspoon Ground Cloves

½ Teaspoon Ground Cinnamon, plus more for topping

½ Cup, plus 1 Tablespoon Canola Oil

½ Cup Apple Juice

½ Cup Almond Milk (or non-dairy milk of choice)

1 Teaspoon Apple Cider Vinegar

1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract

1 Teaspoon Baking Soda

1 Teaspoon Baking Powder

¼ Teaspoon Salt

½ cup Apple, grated


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a muffin tin, or line with paper muffin cups

Sift flour, sugars, nutmeg, clove and ½ teaspoon cinnamon into a large bowl. Add ½ cup of oil and mix well until all oil is absorbed. Mixture will be crumbly.

Take out 1 cup of mixture and place it in a smaller bowl. Mix 1 additional tablespoon of oil with the crumble. Set aside.

In a separate bowl stir together apple juice, almond milk, vinegar, vanilla, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Stir until combined. Add this liquid mixture to the large bowl of the flour mixture. Stir in the grated apple and mix well.

Fill muffin tins ¾ full with the batter. Top each muffin with a rounded tablespoon of the set aside crumble mixture. Sprinkle each muffin top with a bit of additional cinnamon. Bake in the oven for 20 minutes. Muffins are done when a toothpick inserted into the center of the comes out clean.
