These easy vegan oatmeal muffins are everything you could want from an oatmeal muffin.
They are like having a delicious bowl of brown sugar and maple oatmeal but in a portable form.
I made these up on a whim one afternoon and I am SO glad I did.
That night we had our basement flood, the power go out, a fence blowdown, and my husband having to work essentially none stop. And without these muffins, we would have had nothing to eat for breakfast.
They started out our morning nice and sweet and ready to get working on the disasters listed above.
But back to the muffins.
These vegan oatmeal muffins are oil-free, which I love!
If you don’t care about oil-free you are welcome to add oil in place of the coconut milk. I haven’t tried it but I am certain it will work just fine.
I put maple extract in these and it is amazing! It makes them taste maple-y (I don’t think that’s an actual word) and delicious!
I haven’t tried these with quick oats and I’m not sure how different it would be. But, my old fashion oats worked great.
These aren’t tender muffins they are more of a hearty muffin.
Because these muffins are lower in fat than most muffins the first day of making them they tend to stick to the cupcake liner, but the next day they came off just fine.
That didn’t stop me from eating the stuff that got stuck off the side of the muffin paper.
I am sure vanilla extract would work also, but if you have maple or want to buy some then you definitely should!
I haven’t talked about kid-friendly snacks in a while. But this is a great afternoon snack or quick on the go breakfast.

How do you make these oil free muffins?
Start by preheating your oven to 400 degrees.
Line a muffin pan with liners or grease the pan if you’re not oil-free.
Take a liquid measuring cup and add the vegan milk and 1 TB vinegar, stir and let sit.
Take a medium bowl and add all the dry ingredients, stir until combined. Add your liquid ingredients and stir until combined.
Fill your prepared muffin tin evenly. I use a large cookie scoop.
Bake for 15 minutes, let sit for a minute or two and then remove them carefully (they will still be hot) to a cooling rack.

***Because these are lower-fat muffins they do stick a bit to the muffin liners, but they still work and are tasty!
