How to Make Vegan Sugar Cinnamon Muffins

This recipe is easy to make! I love to use this recipe for vegan breakfast meal prep. They are easy to put together while I clean the kitchen after dinner and then they are ready for a fast breakfast in the morning.

I love that this vegan muffin recipe is made all in one bowl! That’s right, no need to get two bowls dirty. I love when a recipe is efficient!

Start with placing your flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon in a bowl. Add in your brown sugar and remaining liquid ingredients. Stir until just combined.

Pour into your prepared muffin pan and bake!

When there is only two minutes left, sprinkle your sugar and cinnamon mixture on top and bake 2 minutes more to crystallize your sugar cinnamon topping!

Easy peasy muffins for breakfast!

How to Serve and Store Muffins

These muffins are best fresh right out of the oven or the next morning. They will keep on your counter in a covered container for 2 – 3 days. After 2 – 3 days, I would then move them to be stored in your refrigerator.

You can also invidually wrap each muffin and store in a freezer bag! Then just thaw and reheat for a delicious vegan breakfast.
