These vegan toffee apple muffins are so delicious, they have a sponge centre with chunks of soft apple then a crumble topping. They are refined sugar free because I recently decided to cut out sugar, I know that maple syrup and coconut sugar are technically still types of sugar but I find that I can handle those better. They don’t have me constantly craving sweet things like when I’m eating sugar.

Obviously it’s still nice to have cake though! I had one of these toffee apple muffins warm with oat cream when they had just come out of the oven and it was really good. They would also be good with custard, or just cold with a cup of tea.
