A batch of these on the weekend goes a long way, and you will be so appreciated, that you will be expected to bake more the following weekend. Enjoy!

A good vegan muffin recipe should be moist, fluffy, and bursting with flavour. These muffins tick all the boxes and, in addition, are crowned with yummy caramelised fig and sesame seeds and oats for a delightful vegan breakfast muffin.

To store the vegan muffins, line an airtight container with a paper towel and keep them at room temperature.
