Dry ingredients

  • 1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup granulated white sugar (make sure it's vegan)
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda

Wet ingredients

  • 2/3 cup plant-based milk e.g. oat milk
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice freshly squeezed
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil melted

Ingredients for the glaze

  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice freshly squeezed
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar


  • Preheat the oven to 360°F/180°C.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine the dry ingredients for the muffins, and whisk. Then add in the wet ingredients and whisk again until it's a smooth batter.
  • Fill the batter into muffin wrappers in the muffin pan - the batter should be enough for 7 muffins.
  • Bake them in the oven for about 15 to 20 minutes until they are getting a slightly golden color on top and you can use a wooden toothpick to check if they are baked all the way through.
  • Let them cool off completely before adding the lemon glaze. For the glaze, whisk together the lemon juice and powdered sugar. Add more lemon juice for a thinner glaze, add more powdered sugar to thicken it up. It should be thick but pourable. Then add a dollop of lemon glaze onto each muffin, let them sit for a few minutes, and enjoy!
