Vegan Oatmeal Breakfast Muffins

Vegan Oat Breakfast Muffin

Molly is in secondary school now (yikes...) and is taking Food Tech. Her homework was to bring in a recipe for breakfast muffins. For everyone else that's kinda easy...just look up a recipe and you're away. For us...not so much. So into the kitchen to experiment and come up with something appropriate. We went for an Oat base as it's a healthier option than just plain flour and we didn't want to make a mini cake. After a couple of goes we got it right!

These are a nice combination of oat, cinnamon and dates. Mushed up banana was added as a good binder plus it's kinda healthy. The banana chips on top were done just so it looks pretty!

Free From: Dairy, Eggs, Soya

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Baking Time: 20 minutes



The Muffin

1 cup self-raising flour

1 ¼ cup oats

¼ cup honey

½ cup brown sugar

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp vanilla

1 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp apple cider vinegar

6 tbsp. melted Pure Sunflower margarine (any dairy free margarine will do)

1 ripe banana mashed up

½ cup chopped dates

1 cup non-dairy (non soya) milk – Koko coconut or Rice Dream



¼ cup oats

¼ cup brown sugar

1 tbsp. non-dairy margarine

Banana chips


Preheat oven to 170 C, or 350 F

Line your muffin tin


Make the topping:

Mix ¼ cup oats with ¼ cup brown sugar and add in 1 tablespoon of non-dairy margarine. Mix with your fingers until you have a crumble topping (it will be in chunks). Put to one side.

Oat Topping



Make the muffins:

Mix the flour, oats, baking powder, baking soda and brown sugar together. Add in the vinegar and give it a quick mix.

Add in the honey, vanilla, cinnamon, banana and melted margarine. Briefly mix together. Add in the non-dairy milk a bit at a time and mix as you go. You will have a thickish batter.


With a wooden spoon add in the chopped dates.

Using an ice cream scoop put a scoop of batter into each muffin case. I find ice cream scoops are the best for this - a cup or spoon just dribbles the batter everywhere.  

Oat Breakfast Muffin Oven Ready


Sprinkle the top of each muffin with some of the crumble topping and decorate with a banana chip. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
