Apple Cider Molasses Muffins {gluten free + vegan}

#glutenfree #vegan #apple #cider #muffins


I've been trying to incorporate apple cider into muffin recipes for weeks now. None of them had the flavor I was hoping for. Once I made this amazing Apple Cider Molasses recipe, I knew it was perfect for muffins. I love the addition of molasses in Gingersnap Cookies and gingerbread so I knew it would make a fantastic texture for these muffins. They're perfectly soft, slightly chewy, not too sweet and so delicious while they're still warm.



Apple Cider Molasses Muffins {gluten free + vegan}

Makes 12 muffins                                                    

Batter:

  • 2 cups gluten free all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup almond milk (or other dairy-free milk)
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/2 cup Apple Cider Molasses
  • 1/4 cup sugar or brown sugar

Cinnamon Sugar topping:

  • 1 Tbsp melted dairy-free butter
  • 1 Tbsp sugar
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a muffin pan with foil liners (not paper*) or spray with non-stick cooking spray; set aside. (Since there is no oil in this recipe, the muffins will stick to paper liners.)

In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, and salt. 

In a large mixing bowl, combine the almond milk, applesauce, sugar, and Apple Cider Molasses. Gradually add dry ingredients into wet ingredients and mix until just combined. Pour batter into muffin pan, filling each almost to the top. 

Bake for 12-15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove muffins from oven and allow to cool. 

In a small bowl, melt the dairy-free butter. In another bowl, mix the cinnamon and sugar together. Brush the top of each muffin lightly with butter and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.
