I love muffins! Especially if they’re as easy to make as these pumpkin muffins. All you need is a bowl and a muffin pan. No electric mixer or anything else. And they’re so fluffy and delicious! 

What You Need For These Vegan Pumpkin Muffins: 

The ingredient list for the pumpkin muffins is pretty short and you can find all of the ingredients in any supermarket. No fancy or hard to find ingredients! 

You need: 

  • all-purpose flour
  • brown sugar
  • pumpkin puree
  • baking powder
  • olive oil
  • unsweetened almond milk
  • salt
  • cinnamon 
  • ground ginger, nutmeg, and cloves
  • unsweetened apple sauce

As always, you can find the full ingredient list and the recipe instructions in a separate recipe box at the end of this post.

How To Make Vegan Pumpkin Muffins 

The recipe for these vegan pumpkin muffins couldn’t be much easier. All in all, the pumpkin muffins are ready in less than 30 minutes. And 20 minutes of this time is baking time, which you can use to do other things.

Just follow these four easy steps

STEP 1: In a large bowl, combine the dry ingredients (all-purpose flour, brown sugar, baking powder, salt, and spices). Stir until well combined. 

STEP 2: Add the pumpkin puree, the apple sauce, the olive oil, and the almond milk. Stir until well combined.

STEP 3: Line a muffin pan with 12 paper liners and equally divide the batter. Preheat the oven to 350 °F.

STEP 4: Bake the muffins for 18-20 minutes. Do a toothpick test to see if the muffins are done. 

Recipe Notes:

  • As every oven is a bit different, it’s best to do a toothpick test to check if the muffins are done. Just stick a toothpick into the center of your muffin. If there is wet batter on the toothpick, your muffins need more time. But if it comes out clean, they’re done!
  • I used homemade pumpkin puree for my vegan pumpkin muffins, which I think tastes best. Making homemade pumpkin puree is super easy. However, you can also use store-bought canned pumpkin puree if you’re short on time. 
  • I used all-purpose flour for my pumpkin muffins. I haven’t tried making them with whole wheat flour yet, but I think this will also work just fine. 
  • Are you a chocolate fan? Then add some vegan dark chocolate chips to the muffin batter!
