For the past few days I had this idea in my head to make a lime muffin. I started thinking about all the fabulous flavors that would go well with lime – cherry, raspberry, almond, chili – and then my friend Cheryl recommended “coconut.”
So I got to work making Coconut Lime Muffins and I have to say I think the very first batch was perfect! I took a recipe I found for non-vegan coconut lime muffins and my changes are below.
Vegan Coconut Lime Muffins
- 1.5 c AP flour
- 1/2 c whole wheat flour
- 1/4 c flaked coconut
- 1 T lime zest
- 1 t baking soda
- 1/2 t salt
- 3/4 c sugar
- 1/4 cup applesauce
- 1 T MELTED coconut oil
- 1/4 c plain or vanilla soy milk
- 6 oz vanilla soy yogurt (with cultures)
- 2 T fresh squeezed lime juice
- 1/4 c almond slivers (optional)
- 1/4 coconut for sprinkling on top
- Preheat your oven to 350F and prepare a regular muffin pan (12 tins) by spraying it with canola oil.
- Combine flours, coconut, lime zest, baking soda, and salt in your food processor and pulse 5-6 times before transferring to a large bowl. If you don’t have a food processor, then simply combine everything in a large bowl and whisk for about one minute.
- In separate bowl, combine the sugar, applesauce, melted coconut oil, soy milk, soy yogurt, and fresh lime juice. Use an electric mixer for about 1-2 minutes or until all of the wet ingredients are thoroughly mixed together.
- Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, and add in the almonds if using. Stir until just barely combined – you may still have a few spots of dry ingredients and that’s ok.
- Immediately spoon the batter into the prepared muffin pan so that each tin is filled to the top. I had some extra batter and ended up making about 9 more mini muffins in a separate muffin pan. Sprinkle coconut on top of each muffin.
- Bake for 15-17 minutes, until the tops begin to brown. Remove from oven and let sit undisturbed for about 2 minutes before transferring the muffins to a rack to cool.
Enjoy your Vegan Coconut Lime Muffins!
