It’s fall, which means baking.  Who doesn’t like to have the kitchen smelling like cinnamon in the fall?  Well these little guys are great, with the apples and the cinnamon they totally hit the spot.  You can cut the sugar down to 1/3 cup if you like (we didn’t think that it needed all of the sugar, but you can leave it in if you like – the nutritional info reflects the full 1/2 cup).  These are perfect for breakfast or even a snack.  Everyone in the family is sure to enjoy them as much as you do.  Enjoy!

Vegan Cinnamon Apple Muffins

Apples

1 1/2 cups apple, diced small

2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon cinnamon

 

Batter

1/2 cup mashed ripe banana (about 1 large)

1/2 cup brown sugar

¼ cup unsweetened applesauce

1/2 cup unsweetened non-dairy milk (almond, soy, coconut, rice)

1/4 cup coconut oil, melted

1 tablespoon vanilla extract

2 teaspoons cinnamon

1 teaspoon ground nutmeg

¼ teaspoon ginger

¼ teaspoon allspice

1 cup all-purpose flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

Preheat oven to 400F. Spray a Non-Stick 12-Cup Regular Muffin Pan very well with floured cooking spray or grease and flour the pan; set aside. In a medium bowl, combine 1 1/2 cups apples, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour, and toss to coat. Set aside.  In a large bowl, mash the bananas with a fork. Add the sugar, applesauce, milk, oil, vanilla, spices, and whisk until combined. Add flour and baking powder and stir until just combined; don’t overmix. Fold in 1 1/2 cups apples and any loose flour in bottom of bowl. Divide batter in the muffin tin (this makes 12 muffins) to ¾ full.  Add a pinch of cinnamon to each muffin top. Bake for about 17 to 18 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Allow muffins to cool in pan for about 10 to 15 minutes before removing and placing on a rack to cool completely.
