Vegan and Gluten-Free Snickerdoodle Tahini Muffins

snickerdoodle? tahini? muffins? yaaaa, I went all out for you and have zero regrets. these muffin gems took a couple of times to perfect but wow, they are truly the best of the best now. from the wholesome ingredients, to the light and fluffy texture, they’re everything you need for breakfast or a snack.

healthy enough for breakfast and sweet enough to be dessert is my love language.

honestly, that’s what i strive for when i make recipes. hearty enough to keep you fueled and satisfying enough for cravings.

my snickerdoodle muffin gems have a slight taste of tahini and it’s rather divine i tell ya. the fact that i just started baking with tahini a couple of years ago is mind blowing.

if you’re not a fan of tahini though, fear not, any runny nut or seed butter is going to work well.

when i say runny, that means it’s a more liquid-like consistency and flows freely into the bowl. for example soom foods tahini and Trader Joe’s are great runny ones.

the other ingredients for this recipe are probably ones that you have in your pantry and fridge.

Vegan and Gluten-Free Snickerdoodle Tahini Muffins have a base of oat flour and almond flour.

the almond flour and tahini provide the necessary healthy fats component, and the oat flour provides the carbs.

for the sweetener, i used organic raw cane sugar, but you could also use coconut sugar or even a 1:1 sugar substitute.

the muffins don’t take long to bake, about 23 minutes. you can always pull them out and do the knife test to see if it comes out clean.

here are all of the ingredients to make Vegan and Gluten-Free Snickerdoodle Tahini Muffins

  • oat flour

  • almond flour

  • baking powder

  • baking soda

  • organic cane sugar

  • tahini

  • flax egg

  • cinnamon

  • dairy free milk

  • almond extract

also, if you’re not feeling muffins or don’t have a muffin pan, you could turn this into a coffee cake, yum.

just add it to either an 8 x 8 cake pan or 8 x 11 but make sure you monitor the baking time.

start with baking it for 20 minutes and take it from there. if it’s in the 8 x 8, the cake would probably need as long as the muffins.
