STUFFED Vegan Maple Waffle Muffins will be your new favorite healthy vegan snack for fall! Gluten-free, easy to make, packed with plant-based protein, and NO added sugar.
The beginning of fall is my favorite time of year. The weather is still warm, it doesn’t get dark too soon, and all my FAVORITE seasonally flavored products make their yearly appearance.
If you know me, you know I eat and make pumpkin-flavored things all year round, but I LIVE for all the unique fall products that get released this time of year. From salted caramel and gingerbread to apple cinnamon and pecan pie. I love them ALL! But a true favorite through and through is anything MAPLE flavored.
No Cow’s seasonal Maple Protein Bar is BACK so obviously, I’ve been thinking up tons of seasonal treats to make with them! 🙂
No Cow Seasonal Protein Bars
In addition to Maple, No Cow’s Pumpkin Pie Bar is also back! These bars aren’t dipped, but they have the classic soft No Cow texture and even some crispy pea protein bits throughout! Both are perfectly flavored and so great to welcome the fall season.
Pumpkin Pie – Move over PSL! This Pumpkin Pie flavor is the only pumpkin snack you’ll need this fall. Just as flavorful as your favorite fall pie, perfectly spiced and sweet, and PACKED with protein!
Maple – A tried and true decadent fall flavor that never gets old. It tastes like a fresh stack of pancakes (or waffles!) drizzled with fresh maple syrup. But no added sugar and tons of protein of course!
Both bars are amazing, but the Maple Bar sparked my baking brain! 😉
STUFFED Vegan Maple Waffle Muffins
These easy-to-make muffins are perfect for when you’re craving something sweet but want a protein-packed snack to keep you satisfied. The recipe only makes 6 muffins, but feel free to double or triple it to have healthy muffins in your fridge all week long! In addition to being delicious, these vegan muffins are:
- no added sugar (only sweetened with dates!)
- packed with protein
- super soft and fluffy!
…and STUFFED with maple goodness thanks to No Cow’s Maple Bars!
Not only do these muffins taste amazing, but they’re so fun to make with their “waffled” top! One reason waffles are better than pancakes is that they have the perfect little crevices to house ALL the syrup. Similarly, these muffins are perfect for drizzling syrup on for an extra bit of sweetness! 😉
Grab the recipe and make these for your next weekend baking project or a fun addition to a fall brunch! 🙂
