  • 1 3/4 cups white whole wheat or plain all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup unrefined sugar or granulated sugar for sweeter muffins use 3/4 cup
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup applesauce
  • 1/2 cup almond milk warmed
  • 1/2 cup melted refined coconut oil or canola oil
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1/3 cup melted vegan butter or melted coconut oil
  • 3 tablespoons of granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees and grease or spray mini muffin pan with cooking spray.
  • In a medium bowl, mix together the first five ingredients.
  • In a large bowl mix the applesauce, warm milk, oil and syrup.
  • Add the dry ingredients to the wet, mix until there are no dry spots. Over mixing will make your muffins tough.
  • Fill the muffin tin almost to the top.
  • Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until muffins spring back when touched.
  • While the muffins are baking mix together the sugar ans cinnamon in a medium bowl.
  • When muffins are done, allow the to cool slightly enough to handle them.
  • Turn them out of the pan and roll them in the sugar mixture, coating them completely.
  • If you are using the butter or oil, dip them in the butter or oil before rolling them in the sugar.
  • Allow to cool completely on serving dish or if you are like me you may want to try a few while they are still warm.
  • Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge, that's if you have leftovers.
  • Have Fun and Enjoy!
