Recipe Ingredients:

Cinnamon streusel topping:

  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 5 tbsp. vegan butter melted

Apple muffins:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. sea salt
  • 2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. ginger
  • 1/4 tsp. nutmeg
  • 1/8 tsp. cloves
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 3 tbsp. Pacific Foods Hemp Vanilla Plant-Based Beverage
  • 1 cup cane sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 small tart apples peeled and diced

Vanilla glaze:

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit and line a 12-cup muffin tin with muffin liners or lightly grease with vegan butter or coconut oil.
  • Prepare the cinnamon streusel topping: add flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, and melted vegan butter to a bowl. Use your hands to form a thick crumble. Set aside.
  • Prepare the muffins: in a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, sea salt, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and cloves. Set aside.
  • To a large bowl add vegan butter and sugar. Use a hand mixer to cream together butter and sugar until evenly combined. Add in eggs, applesauce, and Plant-Based Beverage. Beat mixture together until smooth and creamy.
  • Slowly add the flour mixture to the wet mixture using a wooden spoon or spatula to combine. The mixture will be thick! Fold in chopped apples until just combined.
  • Use a cookie scoop to divide muffin batter into lined muffin tins. Top muffins with streusel mixture.
  • Bake muffins at 425 degrees Fahrenheit for 5 minutes, then lower oven temperature to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and bake for an additional 15-17 minutes, or until muffin tops are golden and toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  • Remove muffins from oven and let cool slightly in the tin before transferring to a baking rack to cool completely.
  • Create the vanilla glaze: whisk together powdered sugar and plant-based beverage until mixture is smooth and silky. Drizzle over muffins and enjoy!
