    These look awesome!! Can’t wait to try. Do you think there are any good substitutes for the canola oil in these?? Hate when I’m one ingredient away from a yummy treat! ?

      Thanks, Brittany! You could probably substitute coconut oil or melted vegan margarine – or maybe even applesauce! We’ve only tried canola oil, but let us know if you have any luck with a substitution!

    These muffins, man… the absolute greatest. I always used to get the ones from Whole Foods, but wanted to try a homemade version because of all the plastic packaging. These are even better!! Exactly what I was looking for.

    You say almond milk in the blog post but if mock buttermilk is the consistency the recipe is going for, would soy milk work better? Thank you!

      Hi Allison! We aren’t sure if you can swap gluten free flour in this recipe as we’ve never tried (let us know if you do)! But, we do have this gluten free mini muffin recipe you could try:

    I used half whole wheat flour, maple syrup for vanilla and coconut oil instead. They taste like cookies, they’re amazing. THANKYOU!

    Thank you thank you thank you!!
    These were a hit! Served to non-vegans and as they were raving on how good the muffins were, I told them those were vegan and they couldn’t have guessed if I didn’t spill.
    Such perfection, though I was afraid they would turn into a disaster as my homemade oat milk did not curdle at all. Crossed my fingers and used it anyway. Turned out amazing.
