Servings: 12 muffins


For the muffins

  • 1 1/2 tablespoons flaxseed
  • 5 tablespoons water
  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil

Streusel topping

  • 1/2 cup 1 stick butter, melted (or vegan butter if making these vegan)
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon


  • Start by making the flax egg: in a small bowl combine flaxseed and water and allow to sit for a few minutes, until thickened and a gel like texture.
  • Preheat oven to 375 and spray a muffin tin with cooking spray or line with muffin liners and set aside.
  • In a bowl combine the flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt.
  • In another bowl combine vanilla extract, applesauce, vegetable and flax egg.
  • Add the dry ingredients into the applesauce mixture. Stir to combine gently.
  • Divide batter between muffin cups (they'll be 3/4 full)
  • Make streusel topping by melting butter in a microwave safe bowl, then add in the flour, brown sugar and cinnamon. Top each muffin with a little streusel.
  • Bake for 16-20 minutes, or until slightly starting to brown around edges or a toothpick comes out clean when poked into the center of a muffin.
  • Remove from oven and allow to cool a little.
  • Enjoy, or allow to cool completely before putting in a freezer bag or container and freezing. These are good in the freezer for up to 3 months.
