How to Make Applesauce-Raisin Vegan Muffins

Updated on June 13, 2017

Trent and his family, from Tulsa, Oklahoma, recently became vegetarian. Trent likes his new, healthy way of eating and enjoys learning to bake. Muffins are one of his favorite breakfast choices. Even though these muffins are not too sweet, Trent loved them, devoured them. He is looking forward to coming up with new vegan recipes for me to put on this site. So, try these and let me know what you think.

Recipe Changes

The first batch of muffins we made, shown on the video, were a little too heavy, so we adjusted the ingredients a little. For the recipe below, the batter will be thinner than shown in the video. The other change was to spray the muffin tins (or use non-stick tins) rather than use cup cake papers. Our first batch of muffins stuck to the paper.

Cook Time

Prep time: 15 min
Cook time: 30 min
Ready in: 45 min
Yields: Makes 12


  • 2 c. pastry flour, whole wheat
  • 1/2 c. rolled oats, (oatmeal)
  • 1 Tbsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 1/4 c. milk, nondairy, unsweetened
  • 1/2 c. rice syrup
  • 1/2 c. applesauce, unsweetened
  • 2 Tbsp. margarine, melted
  • 1 egg, Egg Replacer
  • 3/4 c. raisins
  • 1 spray oil, coconut

Assemble Ingredients


  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF. In a large bowl, mix the dry ingredients. Stir in all of the wet ingredients. Increase sweetness according to your taste.
  2. Spray the muffin tins. Spoon the mix into the tins, making each about 3/4 full. Bake for 30-35 minutes, until a knife put into the center comes out clean.
  3. Wait a few minutes before placing the muffins onto a plate to serve, plain or with margarine.
  4. NOTE: Do not use the cup cake paper cups as shown in the photo. That did not turn out well.

      Thanks for the comment. I think the trend is towards less sweet bakery items at some of the trend following places, at least that's what I've found. Enjoy your muffins!

      My main complaint with most muffins is that they are too sweet, so this recipe sounds great for me. I would probably use butter, honey and a whole egg, since I'm not vegan and that's what I have in the pantry!
