The way I see it, muffins are better sweetened with natural ingredients like fruit. Save the granulated sugar for the cupcakes. Of course, there are always exceptions, but I prefer vegan muffins to be on the healthier side.
These healthy vegan muffin recipes are all free of refined sugars. They’re sweetened with ingredients like ripe bananas and maple syrup. I always like to use natural sweeteners when I have the chance.
Many of these recipes are also free of gluten and full of fiber! They’re great for a quick breakfast on the go, or an afternoon snack when you need a pick-me-up. I also like to make muffins for meal-prepping at the beginning of the week.
