Metric Imperial


  • 3 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup cornstarch
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup chia seeds
  • 1 tbsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 cup maple syrup (preferably dark syrup for its robust flavour)
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 1 cup vegan milk substitute (almond, coconut, or soy)
  • Juice and zest of one lemon
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cup walnuts or almonds, chopped


  1. Preheat oven to 180° C (350° F), rack in centre position. Place paper liners in 12 muffin cups.
  2. In a bowl, combine the flour, cornstarch, baking powder, chia seeds, cinnamon, and salt. Add the maple syrup and melted coconut oil.
  3. Gradually add the milk substitute, lemon juice and zest, and the vanilla, stirring with a wooden spoon just enough to moisten the mixture without developing gluten. Add the nuts.
  4. Put heaping ice cream scoops of batter into the muffin cups. Bake for 30 minutes.
  5. Remove from oven and allow the muffins to cool slightly before taking them out of the tin.

More about Maple

Maple syrup comes in four classifications, according to colour and taste.

At the start of sugaring season, syrup is generally clear, with a lightly sweet taste. It becomes darker and caramelized as the season goes on.

An unopened can of maple syrup keeps for many years.

Once the can is opened, syrup should be kept in an airtight container in a cool place.

100% pure maple butter contains no butter or dairy.

Like all 100% pure maple products, maple butter comes from the sap of the maple tree… and that’s all.
