Vegan and Gluten-Free Strawberries & Cream Dream Muffins

are you on the lookout for a scrumptious breakfast option that’s not only vegan and gluten-free but also bursting with flavor?

look no further! these nourishing Vegan and Gluten-Free Strawberries & Cream Dream Muffins are here to save your mornings.

they’re packed with wholesome ingredients and are guaranteed to please even the pickiest of eaters.

taste and texture:

imagine biting into a moist, fluffy muffin filled with juicy strawberries and a cream cheese surprise in every bite.

that’s exactly what you can expect from these muffins.

the combination of sweet strawberries and tangy cream cheese filling go together perfectly and taste like such a spring treat.

the texture is perfectly balanced – soft and tender with just the right amount of heartiness to make you full.

how to make them:

making these muffins is EASY- you just need one bowl :)!

simply combine the wet ingredients – think applesauce, maple syrup, and dairy-free yogurt – with the dry ingredients like oat flour, almond flour, and baking powder.

fold in the freshly diced strawberries, and your batter is ready to go.

don’t forget to whip up the creamy cream cheese filling using dairy-free cream cheese and arrowroot powder.

spoon the batter into muffin cups, add a dollop of the cream cheese mixture, cover with more batter, and bake to golden perfection.

how to store them:

if you somehow manage not to devour these muffins in one sitting (trust us, it’s a challenge), you can store them in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week.

or freeze them individually for a quick grab-and-go breakfast option!

substitution options:

feel free to get creative with the fruit! prefer a different berry? blueberries or raspberries would work beautifully too.

the possibilities are endless – tailor these muffins to your taste preferences and dietary needs.

add-in options:

while these muffins are perfection on their own, you can take them to the next level by adding in your favorite extras.

chopped nuts, shredded coconut, chocolate chips, or even a sprinkle of cinnamon would make great additions to the batter.

get creative and make these muffins your own!

why the whole family will love them:

whether you’re catering to vegans, gluten-free eaters, or just looking for a wholesome breakfast option that the whole family can enjoy, these muffins are sure to be a hit.

they’re nutrient-dense, satisfying, and downright delicious – perfect for busy mornings or leisurely weekend brunches.
