Servings 6 people


Dry ingredients

Wet ingredients

  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 1 cup non-dairy yoghurt plain or vanilla
  • 1/4 cup aquafaba , lightly whisked
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp orange blossom water optional
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 2-3 citrus of your choice sliced into thin half circles. optional


  1. Lightly grease  a standard 12-cup muffin pan. Or line the cups with liners as I did. 

     Heat the oven to 350 Fahrenheit.

  2. Place all of your dry ingredients into a medium bowl and give them a good stir. 

  3. Whisk your aquafaba in another medium sized bowl and add the rest of the wet ingredients, whisk again until well combined. 

  4. Pour your wet into the dry and stir until combined but not more. The secret to moist muffins in not over mixing.

  5. Fill each of your muffin tins to about 3/4 fill. Place one citrus slice on each unbaked muffin, if using.  Place in oven and bake 25 minutes. The muffins are great straight from the oven but you will note an increasing orange flavor if they are wrapped up and served the next day. These muffins will keep moist, well wrapped, for at least two days.
