Vegan cinnamon crumb muffins are sweet and spiced, and topped with a chewy oat cinnamon crumb. Made with just a few healthy ingredients, they’re a great snack or breakfast treat! Gluten free and naturally sweet.
Well, today it’s the muffin’s time to shine! If we aren’t going with chocolate chip, it’s got to be something with a sweet, chewy, crumbly topping. These vegan cinnamon crumb muffins have it all. A firm outside, soft inside, and a pile of sweet cinnamon crumb on top.
I’m definitely guilty of kind of “forgetting” about muffins. But I’m always happy when I bake some, because they’re super simple and SO versatile. Grab one on your way out the door for a quick breakfast, devour one when you get home from work and just can’t wait until dinner, or enjoy one in the evening for a fun little dessert treat.
You do you with your muffins, okay?!
If it’s been cold AF wherever you are for WEEKS like it has been here, we all deserve some vegan cinnamon crumb muffins in our lives. There’s something so comforting about the warm, spice flavor that cinnamon gives and it’s perfection in these muffs.
The batter is super simple. These start with oat flour and a generous amount of cinnamon, and that’s it for the dry ingredients! Next is some flax eggs to bind, date paste for super rich sweetness, and some almond milk to bring the muffin batter together. Pour that batter into your muffin tin, and you’re ready for the beautiful crown of crumble to go on top.
Let’s be honest, the crumble is EASILY the best part of a crumb muffin.
Unlike other recipes with complex, super long ingredient lists, this crumble is more of the same ingredients we’ve already used in the batter. Whole oats this time for great texture, more cinnamon, and more sweet date paste. Sprinkle it over the muffin batter, bake for a quick fifteen minutes, and your’e done!
These vegan cinnamon crumb muffins are soft, sweet, and piled high with piled high with that sweet cinnamon crumb. What else is there to say?!
Have a happy, healthy week, friends!
