Who doesn’t love a good muffin, and then Baking from scratch Vegan Apple Pecan Muffins?

Sometimes baking a muffin from scratch can seem to be a lengthy task, but it is actually really simple so try Baking from scratch with Vegan Apple Pecan Muffins.
Homemade also tastes better, maybe because I am actually aware of what is going into the muffin.

I mean seriously I have walked past many a bakery and seen the conditions of those kitchens and wonder if I am actually getting a muffin or am I getting a muffin and something extra, a special secret ingredient.
I am slowly working my way through my vegan muffin section of The Vegan baking cookbook and today it was the apples turn to be turned into a muffin, sorry bananas it is time you took a back seat.

I love apples in all forms, shapes sizes, and colors, so this recipe was just up my street.
And if the recipe itself was not a breeze to make it was also vegan-friendly so my mother could enjoy the sweet treat as well.


  • 2 cups cake flour.
  • 1 tbsp. baking powder.
  • 1 tsp cinnamon powder.
  • ½ tsp salt.
  • 2 tbsp. ground flax seed
  • 6 tbsp. hot water.
  • ½ cup applesauce.
  • 1/3 cup oil.
  • ½ cup castor sugar.
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence.
  • 225g apple, cubed.
  • 1 cup chopped pecans.
Baking from scratch Vegan Apple Pecan Muffins


  • Mix the flax seeds and water together, give it a good stir and allow to stand for 15 minutes to get all gooey and this will form the vegan egg.
  • In a bowl, mix the applesauce, oil, sugar, vanilla essence, and vegan egg together, until well combined.
  • Add the flour, baking powder, cinnamon powder, salt, and mix till well combined.
  • Fold in the apple pieces and the nuts.
  • Fill your muffin casings about ¾ of the way.
  • Pop into a preheated oven and bake at 180 degrees for 15 – 20 minutes or until the cake tester comes out clean.
