Vegan apple muffins/Briose vegane cu mar

I usually don’t like to start my posts with a negative touch, but did you know that I used to dislike cinnamon? When Christmas was around the corner and every little shop was selling something based on cinnamon I used to roll my eyes and never understood why people love cinnamon so much.

Well, fast forward to now, I can safely say I like (not really love) cinnamon. And autumn weather is perfect for baking with cinnamon. And that’s what I did. I guess everyone knows that it’s best to eat foods that are in season, so strawberries, pineapple are kinda out of range here in autumn. Grapes, apples, nuts, all in for me.

Now I’ll share with you a delicious muffin recipe. No added sugar, no eggs, no animal milk. So yeah, it’s vegan 🙂

Here’s the list of ingredients:

  • 1 1/4 cup flour (I used wholewheat)
  • 1 cup oats
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • dash of salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tbsp flaxseed combined with 6 tbsp water until it gets jelly
  • 1 cup plantbased milk (I used a combination of coconut and almond) combined with 1 tbsp vinegar
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup (or honey)
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 2 chopped apples

For the topping I used:

  • 1 tbsp flour
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup (honey)
  • 1 tbsp coconut sugar
  • 1 tbsp oats
  • chopped walnuts

The steps are pretty easy.

First of all, you need to mix all the dry ingredients (oats, flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon). In a different bowl mix the wet ingredients (milk, flaxseed, coconut oil and maple syrup). Combine the dry and wet ingredients and fold in the chopped apples.

Pour the batter in your muffin liners and pour the topping.

Set the oven for 180C/375F and leave the muffins for a maximum of 20 min or until golden brown.

 

Hope you’re gonna enjoy this fall recipe!

 

RO: Cand ma gandesc ca tocmai am facut o reteta de briose cu mere si scortisoara, mai ca nu imi vine sa cred. Si nu pentru ca am facut si eu ceva dulce in sfarsit, ci pentru ca am folosit scortisoara. Pana acum cativa ani, nu voiam sa aud de acest condiment. Nu intelegeam de ce toata lumea il prefera de Craciun si refuzam cam orice combinatie care avea si scortisoara. Well, lucrurile s-au schimbat, am crescut si acum folosesc si eu scortisoara in foarte multe combinatii.

Si uite asa am ajuns sa fac aceasta reteta care merge foarte bine cu vremea de afara. Mai ales pentru voi, cei care iubiti mirosul de scortisoara in casa.

Va las mai jos o lista cu toate ingredientele de care aveti nevoie:

  • 1 1/4 cana faina integrala
  • 1 cana fulgi de ovaz
  • 2 lingurite scortisoara
  • un varf de sare
  • 1 lingurita praf de copt
  • 1/2 lingurita bicarbonat de sodiu
  • 2 linguri seminte de in pasate amestecate cu 6 linguri de apa pana cand devine o compozitie gelatinoasa
  • 1 cana lapte de migdale/cocos plus o lingurita de otet
  • 1/4 cana ulei de cocos
  • 1/4 cana sirop de artar sau miere
  • 1 lingurita esenta de vanilie
  • 2 mere taiate cuburi

Pentru topping am folosit:

  • 1 lingura faina
  • 1 lingura ulei de cocos
  • 1 lingura sirop de artar
  • 1 lingura zahar brun sau de cocos
  • 1 lingura fulgi de ovaz
  • nuci taiate

 

Instructiunile sunt destul de simple. Prima data amestecam ingredientele uscate (faina, praf de copt etc). Intr-un alt bol amestecam ingredientele umede (lapte, seminte de in, vanilie, ulei). Ultimul pas este sa incorporam cele doua parti si sa adaugam merele.

Turnati compozitia in formele de briose si adaugati toppingul.

Setati cuptorul pentru 180C/375F si lasati briosele la cuptor pentru aprox 20 min.

Sper sa va placa reteta. Stiu ca sunt destul de multe ingrediente, insa puteti fi siguri ca vor iesi niste briose foarte bune, sanatoase si perfecte pentru toamna.

Flavia
