These Cinnamon Swirl Coffee Cake Muffins pair perfectly with a cup of coffee or frothy latte! Buttery cinnamon streusel top, cinnamon swirl in the middle – what more could you need!




  • 1/2 cup vegan butter, melted
  • 1 cup plain vegan yogurt
  • 1/2 cup nondairy milk
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • pinch of salt

Cinnamon Swirl Center:

  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon

Streusel Topping:

  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup vegan butter



  1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease a 12 cup muffin tin or line with parchment liners.
  2. Make the muffins: In a large mixing bowl, add the melted butter, yogurt, brown sugar, vanilla extract and nondairy milk. Stir to combine.
  3. Add the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt and stir until just combined. It will be very thick – mix until there is no more dry ingredients hiding anywhere but do not over-mix.
  4. Add a heaping spoonful of batter into each muffin cup, until about half way full.
  5. Cinnamon swirl center: In a small bowl, combine the sugared cinnamon. Add 2 tsp of the mixture into each muffin cup. Add dollops of the remaining batter overtop each muffin until cups are full. The batter is thick, so I like to use wet hands to gently press down on the batter so it covers the sugar layer completely.
  6. Make the streusel: in a mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar and cinnamon. Grate the butter into the mixture, or use a pastry blender to combine the butter with the mixture until it resembles crumbly wet sand. Sprinkle over each muffin evenly.
  7. Bake for 34-36 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean or with a few crumbs clinging to it.
  8. Remove from the oven and let cool about 10 minutes before removing from the muffin tin and transferring to a wire cooling rack. Enjoy!
