Key Ingredients

To create the perfect vegan raspberry muffins, you’ll need to use the right ingredients. Here’s what you’ll need:

Ingredients for muffins are on a table. The text besides them reads, baking powder, vinegar, applesauce, flour, flaxseed, cornstarch, brown sugar, raspberries, salt, oil, and almond milk.

You can find the full printable recipe, including ingredient quantities, below. But first, here are some explanations of ingredients and steps to help you make this recipe perfect every time.

  • Vegetable oil — Use canola oil, melted coconut oil, avocado oil, or olive oil.
  • Sugar — Brown sugar (light, dark, or homemade brown sugar) adds extra moisture to these muffins.
  • Applesauce — Use unsweetened applesauce for these muffins.
  • Plant-Based Milk — Any plant-based milk will work, such as almond milk.
  • Ground flaxseed — We’ll use ground flax as an egg replacer, but you can substitute ground chia seeds.
  • Cornstarch — Adding cornstarch to flour can improve baked good’s texture.
  • Vinegar — Apple cider vinegar works, or substitute white vinegar or lemon juice.
  • Flour — I experiment with flours all the time. All-purpose flour creates light muffins. Use gluten-free baking flour blend to make gluten-free raspberry muffins. Use half whole wheat flour or use 100% Whole Wheat Pastry Flour to make healthy raspberry muffins.
  • Berries — Use fresh or frozen raspberries.

All of these ingredients are readily available in most grocery stores, and they’re all vegan-friendly. With the right ingredients and this recipe, you’ll be on your way to creating the perfect vegan raspberry muffins!

Feeling adventurous? Try adding some unconventional ingredients like a teaspoon of matcha powder or pumpkin pie spice. Remember to always use vegan substitutes for traditional baking ingredients like eggs and milk.
