Just a Cheesey Apple Muffin.

I love, love, love apples and cheese. There are other fruit/vegan cheese combos that I love, but apples and vegan cheddar were meant for each other in the best kind of way. Since apple picking, I had an insane amount of apples that needed to be created into something delicious and preferably with vegan cheddar cheese. Since, I’ve done everything from scones, grilled cheese and a buckle, I thought hey!! How about a cheesey apple muffin?!? And then cheesey apple muffins were made.

 Cheesey-Apple Muffins

Ingredients:

1 c unbleached all-purpose flour

1c whole wheat flour

1 tsp sea salt

1 ½ tsp baking powder

½ tsp baking soda

½ tsp cinnamon

½ c unbleached cane sugar

1 c unsweetened non-dairy milk mixed with 1 tsp apple cider vinegar (I used So Delicious Almond Plus)

1 tsp Ener-G egg replacer (dry–not mixed with water)

½ c neutral tasting oil (like safflower or canola)

1 c Daiya cheddar style shreds

2 apples, chopped ( I used Honeycrisp–that I bought at the orchard. They don’t offer u-pick on those as girls like me would devour the entire orchard in like….an hour…… but Granny Smith, Golden Delicious or many others would work just as well)

Method:

Preheat oven to 375°F.  Mix all of the dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Create a well in the center of the dry ingredients and add the vegan buttermilk (non-dairy milk + apple cider vinegar) as well as the oil. Stir until just combined. Then add the cheese and apples and fold in to combine. Using a ¼ c as a measure, scoop batter into prepared muffin tins. You’ll end up with a little extra batter, so you can prep an additional muffin tin for a few extra or mini cake or loaf pan if you’d like something with a different shape. Bake for 18-20 min.

Muffins are delightfully moist from the apple bits, not too dense. 🙂

  1. I’d completely forgotten how well cheese and apple go together til you reminded me – we always used to eat cheese with apple pie when we were little!

    Those muffins look top!

    1. Thanks! Cheese and tart-sweet apples are my favorite. Not sure if you have Daiya brand vegan cheese–it’s great! They make the best cheddar around! Although I do try and buy up the Redwood Foods Cheesely when we get a shipment over here because I love that stuff as well. 🙂
