About the author


My name is Kevin. My life changed when I realized that healthy living is truly a lifelong journey, mainly won by having a well-balanced diet and enjoying adequate exercise. By experimenting in the kitchen and openly sharing my meals, I learned that healthy eating is hardly boring and that by making a few adjustments, I could design a diet that could help me achieve my personal fitness goals. Our bodies are built in the kitchen and sculpted in the gym.

Apple Cinnamon Ginger Coffee Cake Muffins
Ingredients for 12 muffins:

  • Dry
    • 2 cups oat flour (or all purpose flour)
    • 1 teaspoon baking soda
    • 1 teaspoon baking powder
    • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
    • pinch of salt
  • Wet
    • 8oz unsweetened applesauce
    • 1/3 unsalted, natural almond butter
    • 1/2 cup coconut sugar (OR raw cane sugar)
    • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger
    • 1 cup Blue Diamond Almond Breeze almondmilk, unsweetened OR vanilla
    • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 medium apple, cored and diced
  • Topping
    • 1 cup oat  flour or all purpose flour
    • 1/4 cup (vegan) butter, melted
    • 1/3 cup coconut sugar
    • 2 teaspoons cinnamon

Set oven to 350F / 177C.

In a large bowl, mix together the dry ingredients with a fork.  In a smaller bowl mix together the wet ingredients until smooth.  Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix together using a spatula.  Fold in the diced apple.

In a separate bowl, mix together the topping ingredients – it should be very crumbly.

Spray a muffin mold with avocado oil or nonstick spray.  Evenly divide the batter among  the muffin molds – I use an ice cream scoop to keep it uniform.

Add the crumbs topping to each muffin.  And as an OPTIONAL step (and pro-tip), lightly pinch sugar on top of each one muffin for a crispier sugar coating after baking.

Bake for 25 – 30 minutes, or until the topping is golden brown and toothpick comes out clean once inserted.

Allow them to cool in the molds for at  least 10 minutes before attempting to remove after baking.
