  • 12-count Cupcake baking tin


Streusel topping

  • cup Brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp Sugar
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon
  • ¼ cup Vegan butter


  • ½ cup Vegan butter
  • ½ cup Brown sugar
  • ¼ cup Sugar
  • 2 tbsp Ground flax seeds
  • 5 tbsp Water
  • ½ cup Alpro Greek style yogurt
  • 1 ½ tsp Vanilla extract
  • 1 ¾ cup Flour
  • 1 tsp Baking soda
  • 1 tsp Baking powder
  • ½ tsp Salt
  • 1 ½ tsp Cinnamon
  • ¼ cup Soy milk
  • 2 apples peeled and cut in small chunks

Vanilla Icing

  • ½ cup Icing sugar
  • 1 ½-2 tbsp Vegan double cream
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract


  • Make the flax egg by mixing 2 tbsp of ground flax seeds and 5 tbsp of water in a bowl, set aside.
  • 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.
  • Cut the apples into small cubes and set aside.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Bake for 5 minutes on 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.
  • Remove the muffins from the muffin tin and allow completely cool.
  • Make the vanilla icing: Whisk together all the ingredients and drizzle over cooled muffins.
