Healthy Vegan Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins

happy monday and happy Healthy Vegan Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins day! these are the best muffins of fall that you have to try!

once you do, i can guarantee they will be on repeat, at least through the rest of fall.

with the most amazing fluffy texture and creamy cream cheese filling, the muffins are all kinds of scrumptious.

the base of the muffins is simple to make and i use my two favorite flours to combine for baking- oat flour and almond flour!

there’s no better flour combination in my opinion when it comes to baked goods, especially cupcakes and cakes.

you can use any kind of vegan cream cheese by the way. while i did not add any sweetener to the cream cheese, you’re more than welcome to.

the recipe calls for 1/2 cup of raw organic cane sugar, but the muffins are not that sweet.

if you are looking for a little bit more sweetness, adding some vegan powdered sugar to the cream cheese would be a great idea.

additionally, you’re going to need pumpkin puree and pumpkin pie seasoning because these are indeed autumn themed gems.

for the pumpkin puree, you’re going to need one full cup! save the rest of the can because i have SO many recipes that you can make with pumpkin puree.

pumpkin pie spice adds a fabulous depth of flavor and is definitely necessary for this recipe. also, cinnamon is added for just a little more spice.

the muffins bake in the oven at 350 degrees for 30 minutes and then i recommend letting them cool down completely.

this allows the muffins to set properly along with the cream cheese in the center.

depending on the brand of cream cheese you use, before baking Healthy Vegan Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins, you may want to warm up the cream cheese in the microwave for 30 seconds.

this makes the cream cheese easier to distribute on top of the muffin batter.

  1. This sounds amazing! I am not a fan of tofutti, have you ever tried making these with violife cream cheese? It’s so much better in flavor but I’m curious because it melts easy. Thank you!
