These pumpkin muffins are sure something special! A cozy blend of warming spices all wrapped up in a wholesome muffin, what more could you want?
As the weather is turning from crisp and cool to downright cold, I find my body craving more warm comforting foods.

Your next week of eating is planned out with these quick and delicious vegan bowls, meal prepping steps & full grocery list.
While many comfort foods are loaded with ingredients that tend to weigh you down, these vegan muffins are made with simple ingredients that will nourish your body and fulfill that craving.
These muffins are sweetened ever so slightly to and will keep you satisfied without sending your body into a surge of sugar havoc.
The sweetness comes from apple puree and a little coconut sugar to add a depth of caramelized flavor.
I absolutely love serving these warm, slathered with almond butter and an extra sprinkle of cinnamon. I would also recommend a dollop of maple cashew cream or serve alongside some yogurt (dairy-free optional) topped with cinnamon and hemp seeds for a more filling option.

5 thoughts on “Healthy Vegan Pumpkin Muffins”
Hey there! This recipe looks awesome and am looking forward to making these. Two questions – how many muffins? 12? And also, you mention maple syrup in the narrative but it is not listed in the ingredients – how much?
thanks for the comment! You’re right, maple syrup is somehow not listed… I need to get in touch with the author of this recipe and ask her. Maybe, for now, just make the recipe as written above and then add as much maple syrup as you need to achieve the level of sweetness you’re looking for :)
these were delicious, thank you!
No clue how to measure a cup
Hi Veronika, I just added metric measurements! This was one of our first recipes, hence the imperfections :)
