Vegan Blender Coffee Cake Muffins

These super cinnamony, crumble-packed muffins are ready to make your fall 100x more delicious! The batter easily comes together in a blender, and the recipe is vegan with a gluten free option!



  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons neutral oil (like grapeseed)
  • 1/2 cup flour (all-purpose or gluten-free all-purpose)


  • 1 tablespoon ground flax
  • 3 tablespoon water
  • 1 cup old fashioned rolled oats
  • 4 medjool dates, pitted*
  • 1/4 cup neutral oil (like grapeseed)
  • 2 tablespoon maple syrup or agave
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • pinch salt


  1. CRUMBLE: Whisk your maple syrup, cinnamon, and oil in a small bowl. Add your flour and mix just until combined and crumbles naturally form. The mixture should be easy to squish together into big chunks.
  2. MUFFINS: Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Position the rack in the lower third of your oven.
  3. Mix your flax and water in a small bowl. Set aside to thicken for five minutes.
  4. Add your oats, dates, oil, maple syrup, applesauce, baking soda, cinnamon, salt, and your thickened flax mixture to your blender, and blend until smooth.
  5. Line a muffin tin with six muffin liners. Add a heaping tablespoon of batter into each liner. Sprinkle a bit of crumble on top of the batter, breaking up big chunks with your fingers. Top with the rest of your batter, filling to just about the top of each muffin liner. Add some crumble on top, again breaking up any big chunks with your fingers.
  6. Bake for 19-22 minutes, or until the muffins spring back when softly poked.
  7. Allow to cool completely (seriously, don’t skip this step!) before diving in. I even like popping them in an air-tight container once they’ve cooled to room temperature and then sticking them in the fridge overnight!


*If your dates are hard or cold, cover them with hot water for a few minutes to soften them. Then drain them completely, squeezing out any extra water.
