Step 1

Step 2

Heat the oven to 220°C and line a 12-count muffin pan with cupcake liners.

To make the streusel topping combine 1 tbsp sugar, 1/3 cup brown sugar, 1 tsp cinnamon, and 1/4 cup of melted butter in a medium bowl. Mix well and then add 2/3 cup of all-purpose flour and mix together. The streusel topping will be thick and crumbly. Set aside for later.

In a bowl add 1/2 cup of brown sugar, 1/4 cup of sugar, and 1/2 cup of softened vegan butter. Beat with a handheld or stand mixer until smooth and creamy. Scrape down the sides and add the flax eggs, 1/2 cup of greek style yogurt, and 1 tsp of vanilla extract. Mix again until well combined.

Step 5

In a separate bowl sift 1 and 3/4 cup all-purpose flour, 1 tsp baking soda, 1 tsp baking powder, 1 tsp ground cinnamon, and 1/2 tsp salt together. Then add the dry ingredients to the wet mix. Then add the soy milk and chopped apples and mix with a spatula.

Step 6

Cut the apples into small cubes and set aside.

Step 7

Spoon the batter evenly into the muffin pan, filling each almost all the way to the top. Then divide the streusel topping evenly between the muffins.

Step 8

Bake for 5 minutes at 220°C then lower the heat to 180°C and bake for further 15-18 minutes or until you can stick a toothpick in the middle and it comes out clean.
