SERVINGS: Makes 12 muffins.

 

INGREDIENTS:

Crumb Topping:

3 tablespoons plant-based butter, melted

Grated orange zest from 1 orange

¼ cup chopped walnuts

½ cup flour

2 tablespoons sugar

2 tablespoons brown sugar

¼ teaspoon salt

 

Muffins:

1 cup plant-based yogurt like Forager

1 neat egg, prepared according to package instructions

2 tablespoons water

½ cup plant-based butter, melted

2 cups flour

⅔ cup sugar

2 teaspoons baking powder

½ teaspoon baking soda

¼ teaspoon salt

1 ½ cups fresh cranberries

 

DIRECTIONS:

Preheat the oven to 425.  Line a 12 cup muffin tin with paper wrappers.

Combine all the crumb topping ingredients and chop into small pea-sized pieces with a pastry blender.  Set aside.

In a mixing bowl, combine the dry ingredients for the muffins.  Mix together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.  In the large bowl of a stand mixer, mix the yogurt, neat egg, water, and butter.  Gradually add the dry ingredients.  Add in the cranberries and stir gently to combine.

Spoon the batter into the muffin tins.  Top with the crumble mixture.  Bake for 18-20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle of a muffin comes out clean.  Let cool for 5 minutes and serve while still warm and fresh from the oven!
