Vegan Cranberry Muffins
Vegan Breakfast Cranberry Muffins (Moist & Delicious!)

Vegan Breakfast Cranberry Muffins

With the boys starting Forest School, Breakfast has become even more special in our home. Lunch time is spent with their little circle of friends and Mama bear picks them up when lunch is all over and cleaned up. To make each morning special and send them on their way to hike, roll in mud, and chase each other around the woods, I like to bake special treats like this one!

Muffins and pancakes are probably are favorite morning treats. I find muffins to be so much easier than pancakes so I tend to make these a LOT more! These are moist, delicious, and oh so nutritious!

Alessandro is posing with a freshly baked batch of his favourite bars! I like to add a small handful of vegan chocolate chips and crushed walnuts to these. I have also played around with nut/seed butter, pecans, sunflower seeds, chia seeds, hemp hearts, and fruit! They ALL worked.

I would love to know how these breakfast bars turned out for you and your own family! Feel free to share this Pinterest pin or blog post with any of your friends and family who you think would love to try them out 🙂

Keyword: beginner friendly, Budget Friendly, easy breakfast
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 12 minutes
Total Time: 17 minutes
Servings: 12 squares
Calories: 162kcal


  • 1 banana mashed
  • 1.5 cups non-dairy milk
  • 1.5 cups rolled oats
  • 1.5 cups flour
  • .5 cups apple sauce
  • 3-5 tbsp maple syrup Can substitute for brown sugar or any sugar of choice.
  • 1.5 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tbsp flax seed meal + 2.5 tbsp water (optional but I love the nutritonal value of flaxmeal)
  • 1.5 tsp baking powder
  • Pinch Sea salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 4 tbsp chocolate chips or nuts/seeds


  • Preheat oven to 375F/190C. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper OR prep a large sized rectangular baking dish (15x10). You an also opt to use two smaller sized baking dishes. Just be sure to prep whatever you choose to use so the bars do not stick.
  • Grab a mixing bowl and begin to mash the banana until smooth. Stir in the non-dairy milk, apple sauce, apple cider vinegar, and vanilla extract and mix until smooth.
  • Stir in the remaining ingredients, including the chocolate or nuts/seeds and mix well. Pour into the baking dish or right onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and even out with a spatula.
  • Bake between 12-16 minutes. To check when the squares are done, simply insert a toothpick or sharp knife and remove. If it is clean with just a hint of moisture, then you are good to go. If the squares are not yet finised at the 16 minute mark, bring the heat up to 400F/200C for just a couple of minutes.
  • Let cool for 10 minutes before slicing and serving. I love to serve these with a drizzle of maple syrup, sliced berries, sliced bananas, crushed nuts, or even coconut shavings.


**I have yet to try blended up medjool dates with this one but if I was going to, I would add all of the wet ingredients PLUS the medjool dates into a food processor and blend until smooth. Then I would follow the recipe as stated. I'm sure this would be amazing!

Welcome back to the blog, Mamas! We have been having such crazy weather lately and it has turned us all a bit cranky.

Does gloomy weather do this to everyone or is it just us??

In order to combat the seasonal blues (and by blues I mean non-stop grey and rainy), we make the most out of each day!

Our favorite rainy day activities are devouring fun smoothie bowls like this one, playing in the rain, and non-stop cuddling. Partaking in these three activities in one day makes it so much better!

This smoothie bowl has turned every single frown upside down. Read more
