Today was one of those mornings I just felt productive. I baked some muffins, ate one of those muffins, took some snap shots of the muffins, anddddd... even prepped some turkey burgers for dinner (I know, you thought I was going to say something else about these muffins).
I freaking love muffins. Especially fluffy, warm and toasted muffins topped with melted butter (or in this mornings case, almond butter). Let's call these a lighter version of your typical muffin because you won't feel heavy in the you know what afterwards.
If the sweet smell of baked apples, cinnamon, and cardamom isn't enough to get you to try these, I don't know what is.
Thanks to our good friends spelt and oat these babies are also filled with fiber and protein to help power you through your productive morning :)
Vegan Apple Cardamom Muffins
Servings: 8 large muffins
1 cup of spelt flour
1 cup of oat flour
1/4 cup of brown sugar
2 tsp of baking powder
1/2 tsp of baking soda
1.5 tsp of cinnamon
1/2 tsp of cardamom
1/2 tsp of salt
3/4 cup of unsweetened applesauce
1/4 cup of almond milk
1 tsp of apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup of maple syrup
1/4 cup of coconut oil - melted
1 tsp of pure vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place baking cups into muffin pan.
In a large bowl, whisk together DRY ingredients until well combined. In a separate small bowl, combine WET ingredients and mix well. Pour wet mixture over dry mixture and gently fold/stir together. Be careful to not over-mix!
Pour batter evenly into each muffin tin (filling right to the top of the baking cup for large muffins). Bake for 20-25 minutes until golden brown.
Let cool in the pan for 5-10 minutes then feel free to enjoy warm or place on a cooling rack to finish.
