Dairy Free And So Delicious - Vegan Cinnamon Sugar Muffins




We are into the second month of the year, and many of us are steadily working hard to achieve those goals we set in January. One of my goals (and probably most everyone else's) is to take better control of my health. This starts with what we put inside of our bodies. I find that making small changes and gradually adding more along the way makes it a lot easier to adjust. My husband actually gave himself a major dietary overhaul late last year, and has successfully stuck to it. He has hit some weight loss goals that he's very proud of.

Our family overall has opted to go more towards a vegetarian/vegan lifestyle, even if it's for a couple weeks a month. Believe me, this hasn't been easy! I've been exploring different recipes, and products that are healthier for my family. We recently stopped by our local Walmart store to pick up some groceries, and came across So Delicious Organic Almondmilk with cashew. I was excited to see there is a $1 Ibotta rebate. I am always happy when I can save some money.


So Delicious organic almondmilks come in: Original, Vanilla, Unsweetened. I love the fact that it's made with only what's needed-nothing else. It's made with 7 ingredients or less, is Organic, Non-GMO, Soy-free, Dairy-free and Gluten-free. It's light-tasting and smooth, with just 50 calories or less per serving. If you taste it, you will know understand why it's called So Delicious! Oh, and I am obsessed with the bottle. They are made from at least 80% plants; and it's also recyclable.

You can use So Delicious almondmilks in so many recipes. It's a winner in smoothies and desserts. I found a recipe on Pinterest for vegan cinnamon sugar muffins that looked like a delicious breakfast or snack option. I had most of the ingredients on hand, so I was looking forward to trying them out.


Here's the recipe that I tweaked a tiny bit from Baker by Nature

Ingredients
For the muffins:

1 cup all purpose flour
3/4 spelt flour
3/4 cup dark brown sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
8 ounces applesauce (unsweetened)
1/2 cup So Delicious Original organic almondmilk
1/2 cup coconut oil
2 tablespoons maple syrup

For the topping:
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon

Instructions

Preheat oven to 390 (F). Grease or line muffin tray, set aside.

In a large bowl stir together all dry ingredients. In a separate bowl, whisk together applesauce, almond milk, oil, and maple syrup. Mix the wet ingredients into the dry, stirring until combined.

Fill the muffin cups 2/3 of the way full, sprinkle each with a little cinnamon sugar, and bake for 18 to 20 minutes. Let cool in the pan for at least 20 minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely.

Each family member tried a muffin and the reaction was all the same. They all said it tasted like any regular homemade muffin and they would never have guessed it was vegan. The dozen I made seemed to have disappeared in one day. I was lucky to get one! They had the same texture and flavor of a regular muffin using dairy or egg. This recipe is a keeper!

Don't forget to stop into your local Walmart and look for So Delicious dairy free almondmilk and try it for yourself! It's great as is or in recipes. Also, if you make the muffins, let me know what you think. Thanks for stopping by.
