  • 1/2 cup nut milk I used cashew milk
  • 2 Tbsp. coconut oil melted
  • 3 Tbsp. honey
  • 3 Tbsp. coconut sugar
  • 1/4 cup plain plant-based yogurt*
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup gluten free flour blend**
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 small apple diced into very small pieces (about 1 cup)

Crumble topping:


  • Preheat oven to 375°F. Lightly grease or line your muffin tins.
  • In a large bowl combine the milk, coconut oil, honey, coconut sugar, yogurt, vanilla and egg for the muffins. Stir until well combined.
  • In a medium-sized bowl, whisk the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt.
  • Pour dry ingredients over wet mixture and stir until smooth. Gently fold in the apples and let rest while you make the crumble topping.
  • In a small bowl, stir the crumble ingredients together until well a sticky mixture forms.
  • Fill muffin cups 3/4 full of the batter and sprinkle generously with the topping.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean. Let rest for 5 minutes, remove from tins and enjoy warm. Leftovers will keep in airtight container for up to 3 days on counter or refrigerated for up to 5 days.


*I used Lavva plant based yogurt in their original flavor. Coconut yogurt would also work great. If you are not dairy-free, plain greek yogurt would work well.
**I used Outrageous Baking gluten free flour blend. Use your favorite gf flour blend or if you’re not gluten free, wheat flour would work.
