20+ Healthy Muffin Recipes For Vegans

By Lora O’Brien.

With the colder weather rapidly approaching, I’ve packed away my gorgeous summer dresses and slipped into plush pyjamas instead. Even looking at the open toed sandals I basked in all summer makes me  shudder slightly!

When it’s cold outside, I want something warm inside, and nothing fills my belly better than a piping hot (vegan) latte and one of my old time favourite bakes, the muffin.

Just because muffins are baked goods doesn’t mean they can’t be fairly healthy. In fact, here, I’ve found some of the best healthy muffin recipes for vegans to help curb your winter cravings. They’re not only vegan, but many are gluten and/or sugar free. A small miracle, right? A  muffin that won’t punish us with an actual muffin-top!

These 20+ healthy muffin recipes are easy to make at home, and are much better for you than any you’ll find in a cafe. So get toasty and tuck into one or two of our top twenty vegan muffin recipes!

1.  Banana Muffins

This is an easy, gluten-free recipe that will help you use up any bananas that may be turning brown in your kitchen. Pop these into a bag and pack them in kids’ lunches, or take them with you to work to whip them out when your tummy’s grumbling.

2.  Vanilla & Mixed Berry Muffins

This recipe will convert even those who aren’t particularly keen on fruit. The combination of warm, fluffy freshly baked muffins mixed with the gooeyness of warm berries is truly divine! Of course, berries aren’t in season now, but these are perfectly made with frozen ones.

3. Gluten-Free Chocolate Banana Muffins

If you didn’t think banana muffins could get any better, be ready to take your muffin loving to the next level by adding some rich dark chocolate. The chocolate-banana combo works so well together, creating a decadently rich muffin that will have you convinced it’s way more calorific than it is.

4. Maple Pecan Banana Muffins

Two things that never fail to get my mouth watering are maple syrup and roasted pecans. Whether they’re sprinkled on porridge, or in this case, combined into delightful muffins, I’m a huge fan. I think of these sweet and delicious muffins as little bites of winter happiness.

5. Spanish Vegan Lemon Muffins

When it comes to muffins, a zesty lemon one is seriously at the top of my list. The acidic lemon lends it a wonderful sharpness that works perfectly with the sweet muffin. Olive oil replaces eggs and helps the mix to bind together, and the icing has a hidden superfood in it, too! And if you want to jazz them up a bit, why not add some blueberries or almonds? Yum!

6. Gluten Free Tangy Rhubarb  Muffins

Muffins are usually quite sweet but if too much sugar isn’t your bag, you may just love this rhubarb recipe. The almond flour will help create a sweet and fluffy muffin packed with the tart taste  of rhubarb which will have your  taste buds exploding.

7. GF & Vegan Veggie Muffins

Not only are these babies  GF and vegan, but they’re the perfect way to use up any leftover fruit and vegetables hanging around. Yep, you read that right, veggies! These muffins get kudos for their chameleon benefits; your children will never realise they’re packed full of good greens such as kale and spinach. Perfect for those kiddies that defy their five-a-day.

8. Blood Orange Muffins

You’ve read how much I love lemon, so I was ridiculously excited to stumble across this blood orange recipe. Why have I never thought about making orange muffins before? And what’s better, a cacao frosting would make this taste like our childhood favourite, the Terry’s Chocolate orange, making them perfect for Christmas!

9. Chunky Apple & Cinnamon Muffins

If I could bottle the scent of winter then it would be the aroma of freshly baked apples and spiced cinnamon. Something about the combination just has us feeling all festive. This muffin is a take on the traditional flavours of apple pie. Think soft, crumbly muffin mingled with chunks of cinnamon spiced apple. Yum!

10. Double Chocolate Banana & Espresso  Muffins

11.  Strawberries and Cream Muffins

Strawberries and cream just is for sure a classic summer combo, but it’s also one you can enjoy in winter, thanks to the wonder of frozen berries! This take on a British favourite is a real winner. When it’s pouring down outside, you can still bring a little of that summer feeling inside.

12. Easy Vegan Chocolate Muffins

Who isn’t a fan of the chocolate muffin? Rich and soft and gooey all in one! This take on the classic chocolate muffin is so quick and easy to make whilst being  deliciously vegan, too.

13. Vegan Carrot Muffins

This recipe is a twist on that old time favourite, the carrot cake. But this recipe is completely vegan -even that delicious ‘cream cheese’ topping! These will be bursting with flavour whether they’re served fresh from the oven or cooled the next day.

14. Gluten Free Plum Muffins

Do your like the fruit in your muffins to be a little underwhelming? Sometimes, a small amount of fruit can give the muffin enough of a kick, and these gluten free plum muffins are the perfect example. These guys aren’t overly packed  with fruit, but the plums inside will give the muffin a rich fruity flavour without assaulting your taste buds too heavily, and the almonds add a nice crunch.

15. Zucchini & Apple Sauce Muffins

I know what you’re thinking; courgettes . . . in a  muffin? I feel you, really I do. I had the same initial reaction, but this recipe is a real winner. Once cooked inside the muffin, the courgettes don’t hold much flavour, but they do provide a nice texture and the beautiful applesauce takes centre stage in the flavour stakes. So you’ll feel super healthy for eating your veggies for breakfast.

16. Pumpkin & Gingerbread  Muffins

Whether it’s winter or not we predict this recipe will stand the test of time, as Angela Liddon has proved on her blog, Oh She Glows. This vegan recipe has been a hit with readers for years now, and we can see why. Who doesn’t like a warm, delicately spiced muffin? And these muffins get extra brownie points for leaving our homes smelling absolutely delicious as they bake!

Struggling to get a fussy eater to chow down on more fruits and veggies? The last place they’d suspect to find them is in a delicious muffin, muaha! But these babies have got carrot and zucchini in them, and you could just as easily add some spinach if you don’t mind them going a little green!

18. Herb & Quinoa  Muffins

For those of you that are a little more on the savoury spectrum of snacking, then we’ve got you covered, too. These herb & quinoa based muffins created by health foodie Amy Chaplin are to die for.

19. Savoury Pesto Muffins

Another savoury take on the muffin, and this time it’s packing some serious pizza flavour, thanks to the sun dried tomatoes, basil and garlic. Want them even tastier? Why not top them with some vegan cheese?

2o. Vegan Apple Streusel Muffins

All the flavours of this traditional German dessert are adapted into a tangy, vegan muffin. We love the touch of cinnamon–the perfect spice for winter, and one that actually mitigates the effects of sugar in your body, protecting you a bit from an insulin rush.

21. Vegan Blueberry Power Muffins

What muffin is more classic than the blueberry? But those are usually made with food baddies–not only white flour and sugar, but even worse–some kind of blueberry ‘paste’ usually serves for the fruity flavour rather than actual berries, which can be quite costly, especially in winter. Make yours with frozen blueberries, and rest easy knowing these are actually healthy.

22. Butternut Cranberry Muffins

What? Butternut squash in a muffin again? Yep. And darn tasty it is too! These vegan, gluten-free AND sugar-free muffins couldn’t be lighter, fluffier – or healthier! Maple syrup adds some sweetness, and crushed pecans add some crunch.

23. Blackberry Cornmeal Muffins

An American classic! These are not only 100% gluten-free, but they’re adaptable, too – if you can’t find blackberries, sub in pineapple, blueberries or even switch to savoury with some spinach or vegan cheese!

    Aggregate information (non-personally identifiable information)

    Eluxe Magazine may, from time to time, automatically collect aggregate information about our visitors to our advertisers, sponsors, promotional partners and affiliates. This aggregate information includes, but is not limited to, IP addresses connecting to our site, how many persons visited a particular page or activity, dates and times of image uploads, device characteristics, operating system, browser type, type of connection, page and image viewing statistics, and incoming and outgoing links.

    Like most websites, we use log files to store this information. None of this automatically collected technical information is associated with any identified person at the time it is collected, but it could be associated with you under two circumstances: First, if you choose to give us personal data about you as described above, the technical information we collect that would otherwise be anonymous could instead be logged as coming from you. Second, if we are required to disclose our server logs as a result of a subpoena or other legal process, some third party such as your internet provider could match our anonymous technical information with you, using information beyond what is found on our servers.

    Eluxe Magazine may use cookies, web beacons, pixel tags, or other anonymous tracking information to improve our server’s interaction with your computer, and we may partner with third party advertisers who may (themselves or through their partners) place or recognise a unique cookie on your browser. These cookies enable more customised ads, content, or services to be provided to you. To trigger these cookies, we may pass an encrypted or “hashed” (non-human readable) identifier corresponding to your email address to a Web advertising partner, who may place a cookie on your computer. No personally identifiable information is on, or is connected to, these cookies. Although our servers currently don’t respond to “do-not-track” requests (see below), you can block these cookies in other ways, for example by searching “[your browser] + disable cookies.”

    Eluxe Magazine will never share, sell, lease, or rent PII to unaffiliated third parties, except in the following circumstances:

    a) If we have a good faith belief that we must disclose such information for legal reasons, such as to enforce our Terms of Service, protect or assert the rights, property interests, or personal safety of Eluxe (including its employees, directors, suppliers, distributors, service providers, users of the Website or others), or if we are otherwise required to disclose such information by law. We will disclose information only to the extent necessary to comply with the purpose of the request.

    b) We may share aggregate, anonymous or summary information regarding our customers and their behaviors with partners, advertisers or other third parties. This data is not personal information and so will not identify you personally. We may share information with companies that provide support services to us, such as a printer, mailing house, fulfillment-company, credit card processor, email service provider or web host, amongst others. These parties may need personal information about you in order to perform their functions. However, these parties may not use any personal information we share with them about you for any other purpose other than in connection with performing supporting functions for us.

    You have the right at any time to prevent us from contacting you for marketing purposes. If and when we send a promotional communication to a user, the user can opt out of further promotional communications by following the unsubscribe instructions provided in each promotional e-mail. Please note that notwithstanding the promotional preferences you indicate by unsubscribing or opting out in some other fashion, we may continue to send you administrative emails including, for example, periodic updates to our Privacy Policy.

    In order to access a profile on Eluxe Magazine’s shop, you must first create an account with a username and password. The registration system requires that a valid email address be used to confirm the account. You should choose a username that does not include your last name and does not specify your city or your address. Eluxe Magazine asks that you use your first name only, or an alias, for your display name. This is to safeguard your privacy and protection. We do not use and cannot access this information.

    Eluxe Magazine is 100% opposed to unsolicited commercial email (“spam”). We do not have any desire to send unsolicited marketing emails to anyone without permission and we do not sell or provide user email addresses to any unauthorised third party in violation of this Policy. All of our newsletters and other general email marketing communications also include an “unsubscribe” opt-out link that you may use to tell us to stop sending you marketing emails.

    In the event of a change in control resulting from, for example, a sale to, or merger with, another entity, or in the event of a sale of assets or a bankruptcy, Eluxe Magazine reserves the right to transfer your personal information to the new party in control, or the party acquiring assets. We will only do so if the party we transfer the information to agrees that they will abide by our Privacy Policy for as long as they hold the information, and that they will not transfer the information to any other party who will not abide by our Privacy Policy.

    We use third-party advertising companies to deliver online advertising. These companies facilitate the delivery of ads, conduct market research, and use cookies for record-keeping purposes. These cookies sometimes enable the companies to serve you ads tailored to things you have shown an interest in based on your prior web activity. This is generally known as behavioral advertising. For example, this means that if you frequently read movie reviews online, it is possible that you might see ads on other websites relating to upcoming movies. Online advertising companies generally conduct this activity in an anonymous format, with online information not combined with information that would allow for your identification.

    The third-party companies that will be serving advertisements on Eluxe Magazine may include DoubleClick, Google and Taboola.

    We may periodically modify, alter, or update these policies. We will alert users to any material changes to this policy by posting the revised information here. We encourage you to review our Privacy Policy on a regular basis to stay informed about how we are protecting the personal information we collect. Your continued use of TGT’s website constitutes your agreement to this Privacy Policy and any future updates.
