Vegan Coconut Cherry Almond Muffins

Vegan Coconut Cherry Almond Muffins

While the cherries are in season, I wanted to make the classic Cherry Almond muffins but to suit my taste, vegan and very very delicious. Adding Coconut in any form to the baked goods enhances the taste of the other ingredients and the same is true for my Vegan Coconut Cherry Almond Muffins.

These muffins are perfect – vegan, gluten-Free if you want to use any gluten free flour mix. But I didn’t go 100% gluten-free this time. I used a mix of almond flour and whole wheat meal. So go wild with your flour choice.

The real coconut flavor comes from the coconut oil and a little coconut milk. I also used a little almond milk to the muffin mix. Adding this delicious milk mix gives the wonderful coconut and almond flavors to these muffins.

  2. Use 100% gluten free flour mix if you like in place of almond and wheat flours.
  3. Skip the coarse sugar on top to keep the recipe fully refined sugar free.
  4. Replace coconut oil with a mixture of vegetable and almond oil if you like.
