Vegan spiced plum muffins

Soft fruits can be a bit of a pain, because no sooner have you bought them, they’re going off. So why not put your slightly squishy plums to good use with these spiced plum muffins, which are ideal for an 11 o’clock snack or make a tasty pud (especially while still warm from the oven). They’re also super easy!

  1. 150g spelt flour
  2. 150g ground almonds
  3. 2 tsps ground ginger
  4. 1 tsp baking powder
  5. 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  6. 50g sugar or sweetener
  7. 50g agave syrup
  8. 115g vegetable oil
  9. 250ml soya yogurt
  10. 150g plums (stoned and chopped into small pieces)
  11. A sprinkle of toasted chopped almonds

Pre-heat the oven to 180C.

  • In a mixing bowl, add the flour, ground almonds, ginger, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda and xylitol and stir through.
  • Add the agave syrup, vegetable oil and soya yoghurt and mix – but not to thoroughly because you don’t want to overwork the mixture. Stir through the chopped plums.
  • In a muffin tray, place 12 muffin cases and spoon the mixture to evenly fill the cases.
  • Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes until cooked through. Pop a skewer through one of the muffins and if it comes out clean, they’re cooked.
