Vegan Apple Pie Lactation Muffins #glutenfree

It's a cold and blustery day here on the homestead and after my daughter requested muffins for an after school snack, I thought what better way to warm up than to whip up a batch of yummy muffins.

Now being home with a toddler means I don't have a ton of time to cook a complicated recipe.  So I came up with this super quick & easy gluten-free, vegan muffin recipe that the whole family will enjoy.  And with the added oatmeal and flax it's perfect for nursing moms and just sweet enough for a guilt-free indulgence!


Vegan Apple Pie Lactation Muffins

Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups Gluten-free All-Purpose Flour
1/2 cup Oats
1/4 cup Ground Flax
1 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp Baking Soda
1/4 tsp Salt
1 tsp Cinnamon
1 tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice
1/2 cup Raisins
1/4 cup Coconut Oil (melted)
1/3 cup Pure Maple Syrup
1 1/4 cup Unsweetened Applesauce
1 tsp Vanilla

Instructions:

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.  Grease your muffin tin or use liners.  In a medium bowl combine all your dry ingredients and raisins.  In a separate bowl mix all your wet ingredients until combined.  Then add your wet ingredients to your dry and mix just until incorporated.  Then bake for 15 minutes.
Makes 12 muffins.



These Apple Pie Muffins are a cinch to make and in less than half an hour you can be enjoying these moist and satisfying muffins.  They taste just like Apple Pie or Apple Crumble and no one would ever guess they're gluten-free, refined sugar-free & vegan!

  3. Yum! Just found this on pinterest—any idea if I can use regular flour? Will that change any other measurements?

    1. I don't see why not. Start with the same amount of flour. If anything you might need to add a touch more flour. Gluten-free flour tends to soak up a lot of liquid, so if the batter is a little too wet, you could just add a bit more flour until you get the right consistency. Let me know how it works out!
