Hello, Sunshine.  After six months of grey skies and rain, the sun has appeared in Melbourne. I don’t mind the cold, actually I prefer it, but the Hills are WET in the Winter. It is muddy, muddy, muddy so this, our first day of sunshine, is a lovely bit of bliss. I feel like the funk that has been hovering over our house with flus and whatnot is disappearing along with all those clouds.

And what does one do to celebrate the first real days of Spring? Well, if you’re anything like me, you stick your head out the door like a meerkat to inspect said sunshine before retreating in to the kitchen to make these berry beautiful Vegan Almond Butter Raspberry Muffins. I am so sorry, I did just say that. I don’t usually pun; I can only blame the residual funk.

Moving on.

How about them berries? We are blessed in Australia in that while the southern states (us) experience true Winter, our northern states are super mild making certain produce available all year round. Already, our stores are brimming with an abundance of berries and I couldn’t resist these gorgeous ruby raspberries. Their slightly tart sweetness works beautifully with the nutty and creamy almond butter. While the berries pop in all the best ways, the almond butter helps to create a more complex flavoured muffin than traditional raspberry varieties.

What’s more, and this is great if like me baking is your second language, the nut butter helps to keep the cake moist. Additionally, it’s protein making these vegan almond butter raspberry muffins perfect for breakfast. And who doesn’t love cake for breakfast?  Muffins are nothing if not a socially acceptable way to eat cake in the morning, but at least these little guys have fruit and protein. That covers some of the food groups, doesn’t it?

Regardless of your motives, these vegan almond butter raspberry muffins are stupidly simple to make and easier to devour. Enjoy.

Ingredients 

  • 1.5 cups all-purpose flour 215 grams
  • 1.5 tsp baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda 
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 teaspoon 10ml  vanilla
  • 190 ml dairy-free milk
  • 1 flax egg combine 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed with 3 tablespoon water and sit for 3 minutes 
  • ½ cup raw sugar 
  • 1.25 cups raspberries fresh or frozen
  • 1/3 cup 80 ml almond butter
  • ¼ cup 60ml almond or vegetable oil
  • ¼ cup  almond slivers or chopped almonds
  • 2 tablespoon brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

Instructions

  • Pre-heat the oven to 210 degrees C (410 F) and lightly grease a muffin pan.
  • In a small bowl, combine the almond slivers, brown sugar and cinnamon and set aside. This is the streusel. 
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, raw sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. 
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the dairy-free milk, almond butter, vanilla, flax egg and oil. 
  • Add the wet mix to the dry and fold through until just combined. Add the raspberries and fold again being careful not to over mix the batter.
  • Place a spoon of batter in a muffin mould and follow with a sprinkle of the streusel. Fill the muffin mould to three-quarters before adding more streusel to the top of the muffin.
  • Continue with the remaining moulds. 
  • Place the tray in the oven and cook for five minutes before turning the oven down to 170 degrees C (335 F) and cooking for another 15 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean from the centre of the muffin. 
  • Remove from the oven and allow the muffins to sit for 10 minutes before removing from the pan to serve.

Hey there! Just curious if you could swap the all-purpose flour for whole wheat?

These are SOOOOOO unbelievably yummy!! I Didn’t have a muffin pan, so I just baked the batter up in a loaf pan for coffee cake, and it’s indescribably good. The fruitiness and tang of the raspberries, with that creamy sweetness from the almond butter, and the little crunch of chopped almonds throughout- it’s a wining combo!! And if I could get my hands on some vegan white chocolate chips, well then…. that would also be an AWESOME addition to this recipe! My only concern/complaint is that I’m not sure how this was supposed to make 24 muffins? Having never been… Read more »
