Dairy Free Apple Cinnamon Muffins with Brown Muffin Liner

Every Tuesday the kids have piano and voice lessons right after school and every Tuesday I bake them up a hearty muffin or a new cookie recipe to munch on while on our way. They are starving jackals after school and I fear for my very life if I don’t come armed with, well, basically a “first supper” for them. My little Hobbits need a first supper before their second supper with Dad apparently.

This week I was inspired by the gorgeous organic apples I picked up at Superstore, juicy, crunchy and tasty beyond belief. What a joy it is to experience that in the middle of winter!

I made these dairy free and they turned out fabulous. Sometimes when you are using alternative milks, baking gets too chewy. That’s the only word I can use to describe it. I used almond milk in these and there was no chewy factor to be found, thankfully! The Becel vegan margarine is perfect as well and I was pleasantly surprised that the streusel came out so delicious using it! Just make sure to keep it cold and it will bake up lovely!

The kids are absolutely enthralled with the parchment muffin liners that I used for these and I agree. When you are baking up a muffin with a messing topping, having parchment cups that fold out in a square to catch all the crumbs that inevitably fall is a blessing!

Plus, they make my muffins look oh-so-gorgeous!

  1. Ally says

    Can I make this with oat or soy milk (for nut free)?

  2. AnnaSeymour says

    This is one of my favorite recipes! This streusel is the only one I’ve ever had come out sufficiently crunchy. Delicious!

  3. The Kitchen Magpie says

    No, plain almond milk, good question! Sweetened would add sweetness but I never have it in the house….

    • Meighan says
