Ingredients

For the muffins

  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 2 Tbs vegan/dairy-free butter
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 Tbs light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup Caramel Silk Almond Creamer
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped pecans
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp kosher salt

For the topping

  • 3 Tbs all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped pecans
  • 2 Tbs granulated sugar
  • 1 Tbs light brown sugar
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 Tbs cold vegan/dairy-free butter

For the glaze

  • 1/2 cup confectioners sugar
  • 1 Tbs Caramel Silk Almond Creamer

Instructions

  1. Heat oven to 400F.
  2. Cream together the butter, oil, and sugars. Add in the creamer and almond milk. With the mixer running, add the eggs one at a time. Stir in the pecans.
  3. Separately, combine the flour, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add to the wet ingredients to form a batter.
  4. In a small bowl, use a fork or pastry cutter to combine the ingredients for the topping. Stick the bowl in the freezer for 5 minutes.
  5. While the topping is chilling in the freezer, line 12 muffin tins with papers. Spoon the batter into each, filling 3/4s full.
  6. Get the topping from the freezer. Use your fingers to drop little bits over top the batter in the muffin tins.
  7. Bake at 400F for 20 minutes. Move muffins to a wire rack to cool completely.
  8. Once cool, prepare the glaze by combining the confectioners sugar and creamer. Drizzle over muffins and serve. Yields: 12 muffins.
