How Do I Make This Vegan Apple Cinnamon Muffin Recipe?

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.  Grease a muffin pan, or full each cup with liners.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, add all the dry ingredients: flour, oats, sugar, cinnamon, baking powder, ginger, and salt.  Mix to combine.
  3. Add the wet ingredients into the dry: the apple sauce, coconut oil, almond milk, and vanilla extract.  Stir well. Batter should be thick but if you want to thin it out, add a splash of almond milk.
  4. Place a 1/3 scoop of batter into each muffin cup until cups are evenly full.  Sprinkle with extra cinnamon and sugar, if desired.
  5. Bake muffins for 20 to 25 minutes until golden brown on top. Insert toothpick into the center of muffins to test for doneness (the toothpick will come out clean when muffins are cooked through).
