These cranberry orange muffins make use of aquafaba or chickpea water, a vegan alternative to eggs.


  • 2 cups (240 g) all-purpose flour

  • 3/4 cup (138 g) granulated sugar

  • 1 tbsp baking powder

  • 1/2 tsp sea salt

  • 1 cup vegan yogurt

  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil

  • 1/2 cup barista-style oat milk

  • 3 tbsp aquafaba

  • 2 tsp vanilla

  • 1 tbsp finely grated orange zest

  • 1 cup cranberries, fresh or frozen


  • Position rack in centre of oven, then preheat to 375F. Line a 12-cup muffin pan with 10 paper liners.

  • Whisk flour with sugar, baking powder and salt in a large bowl.

  • Stir yogurt with oil, oat milk, aquafaba, vanilla and orange zest in a medium bowl. Stir yogurt mixture into flour mixture until 80 percent incorporated. Fold in cranberries. Divide batter among liners.

  • Bake until an instant-read thermometer inserted into muffins reaches 190F, 20 to 25 min. (No thermometer? Look for golden brown tops that spring back when lightly pressed.) Transfer to a rack to cool.
