Vegan Pumpkin Spice Muffins with Cinnamon-Maple Icing

I have to start by saying that this recipe is perfect. The muffins come out soft and spicy and the icing is finger-licking good. The muffin recipe is modified from Post Punk Kitchen. The icing is an altered version of Hell Yeah It’s Vegan’s post.

Pumpkin Spice Muffins

  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp ground flax
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground or freshly grated nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1 cup pureed pumpkin (Fresh or from a can)
  • 1/2 cup soy milk
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons molasses
  1. Preheat oven to 375 F. Lightly grease muffin pans with vegan butter or oil.
  2. Mix together dry ingredients in a small bowl.
  3. Mix together wet ingredients in a big bowl.
  4. Slowly pour dry ingredients into wet- mix intermittently.
  5. Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until it is cooked throughout.
  6. Allow to cool; prepare icing.

Cinnamon-Maple Icing

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp margarine, melted
  • 1 tbsp soy milk
  • ¼ tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tbsp real maple syrup
  1. Mix ingredients together. Icing should be more thick than runny. If it turns out thin, add more powdered sugar.
  2. Spread on muffins when they are cool. Enjoy!

My name is Shayla and I talk about food. A lot. I live in Brooklyn, NY where I work as a data nerd in the startup world. As much as I wish I could say I've been a healthy vegetarian for the past 8 years, I can't. I started off as many veg's do: eating primarily processed soy products, pasta, and pizza. I also brought meat back into my diet when I started a job in catering. When I realized that cutting out meat didn't make me feel any better and I was still gaining weight, I decided I needed to make some major changes. I started experimenting and researching; I found that the fresher the food was, the more I enjoyed it. I believe we are what we eat. How we feel and what we eat is so profoundly interconnected. It's impossible to exclude factors like diet and lifestyle when you are trying feel better overall. I understand how difficult eating (or just finding) healthy food can be which brings me to this blog. I aspire to help people make healthy living easier. 2birds1scone is a place for suggestions, inspiration and shared information. It's about bringing healthier perspectives to every part of your life. Please feel free to submit your thoughts and recipes! Namaste. "One choice at a time, with intention and compassion for our selves and our planet, we can eat clean and live well." -Terry Walters
