Muffins muffins muffins… We love muffins! Especially the breakfast kind. Because who doesn’t want to eat a muffin for breakfast? But don’t be fooled, you can eat these at anytime of the day (we do!).
Now, if you are anything like me, muffins are a must in your life. But being vegan, that can be really hard because let’s face it, there are not that many options for us to purchase vegan friendly muffins. The world just hasn’t caught up with how awesome they are. That’s okay, we can live with that – now we have our own versions to cook!
This week has been a tough one for us at Vegan.io. We have been on the go pretty much nonstop with traveling, work, and just everyday life. This made me realise that I had a gap in my recipes for food that could be prepared in advance, that could be taken on the go, and had good longevity of life. Of course, it had to taste good as well. Muffins were the answer… they are always the answer! So let’s take a closer look at what you need to make your very own breakfast muffin.
To create this recipe, you will need 10 ingredients and 35 minutes – most of which are baking minutes, which makes this an easy to make recipe.
We start this recipe off with oats, dried cherries, pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds, and vegan rice protein powder. Combined, these ingredients give us a good source of protein, carbohydrates (the good kind), magnesium, copper, zinc, calcium, and iron (to name a few). In fact, these ingredients are so nutrient dense that we couldn’t list all of the ingredients on this page (without boring you to death) – check out our nutrition chart to see the details.
We finish it off with some almond milk, apple sauce, and olive oil for a touch more protein, ‘healthy fats,’ and of course, taste!
The high protein gluten free breakfast muffins with pumpkin seeds and dried cherries are the snack for any time of the day because they are:
Muffins can be stored in a multiple number of ways, depending on how you plan to consume them. You can simply leave them on the cooling rack, covered with a clean dish towel if you plan on eating them the next day. Hint – this helps to keep them moist and fresh. You may also choose to store them in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 48 hours.
The third option for storing your muffins is to place them in the freezer where they will last for up to 2 months. For this, individually wrap your muffins in plastic wrap and place them in an airtight container or resalable bag. Individually wrapping them not only helps to keep them freshest, it also makes grabbing them to go easy!
I hope you love this recipe as much as I do. Happy cooking!
