There are easy vegan muffin recipes for everyone on this list -- I hope you'll come back and tell me which ones you made!
Y'all, we have been on a huge muffin kick lately. With both Dave and Darrol home, having muffins around for quick snacks and breakfasts has been very handy.
And I love that we can base our muffin baking around what we already have in the fridge and pantry.
How do you bake vegan?
If you're used to making muffins with eggs, butter, and milk, don't worry! Muffins translate easily into vegan baking.
This isn't meant to be a comprehensive guide to vegan baking, but I did want to touch on some general substitutions that you can use.
Replacing eggs in baking is tricky, which is why I always suggest finding a tested vegan recipe, if you can. These are the egg substitutes that I like to use:
- aquafaba (the liquid from canned beans): three to four tablespoons per egg, up to two eggs
- applesauce: three to four tablespoons per egg, up to two eggs
- flax or chia eggs: one tablespoon of flax meal or chia seeds in ¼ cup water per egg, up to three eggs
- vegan egg replacer: follow package directions
Instead of butter, you can use:
- the same amount of vegan butter
- oil (⅓ cup per ½ cup of butter tends to work well)
- the same amount of applesauce, though the texture will be a bit different with applesauce.
Milk is the easiest to replace in baking. Use your favorite plant-based milk! I like to use soy or oat, but almond and cashew are also great for vegan baking.
How to store vegan muffins
Storage can vary by recipe. Some will say that you can store them in an airtight container on the kitchen counter.
I've found that vegan muffins keep longer and better if you store them in the fridge instead. Here's how:
- Allow your muffins to cool completely.
- Transfer to an airtight container.
- They'll keep for four to five days.
Cooling completely is critical, because if you put warm muffins into a sealed container, the condensation can make them get soggy.
