Muffin Batter

  • 6 tbsp vegan butter melted
  • ¼ cup coconut sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 egg room temp
  • ½ cup canned pumpkin puree
  • 2 tbsp almond milk
  • 1 ¼ cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp. ginger
  • 1 cup shredded carrots about 2 large carrots shredded

Streusel Topping

  • ¼ cup + 2 tbsp all purpose flour
  • ¼ cup coconut sugar
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • 3 tbsp vegan butter cold and cubed


  • Preheat oven to 350F and line a large 6 cup muffin tin or regular sized 12 cup muffin tin
  • In a large bowl mix butter, sugar and vanilla
  • Add egg, milk and squash and beat until smooth
  • Add flour, baking soda, baking powder, spices, and salt and mix together. Fold in shredded carrots. Batter will be thicker, this is normal
  • Make your streusel by combing flour, sugar, cinnamon and salt in a small bowl
  • Add cold butter and use your fingers to mix the butter into the dry ingredients until a crumble forms
  • Divide batter between the muffin tin and sprinkle with the crumble. Alternatively you could add half batter, a little streusel, some more batter on top and a final layer of streusel. Both will be so good
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes until a tester comes out clean
