Recipe by @happyapplevegan.


12 muffins/cupcakes



  • 1 ¼ cups Good Karma Unsweetened Flaxmilk with Protein (reduce to 1 Cup if using Good Karma Plantmilk)

  • 1 Tablespoon fresh lemon juice 

  • 1 cup gluten-free all purpose flour (oat flour works, too) 

  • 1 cup almond flour 

  • ⅓ cup coconut sugar 

  • 2 Tablespoons flax meal

  • 1 1/2 Teaspoons ground cinnamon 

  • ⅛ Teaspoon ground nutmeg 

  • 2 Teaspoons baking powder 

  • ½ Teaspoon baking soda 

  • Pinch sea salt 

  • ¼ Cup liquid coconut oil, olive oil, or unsweetened applesauce 

  • 2-3 Tablespoons maple syrup 

  • 1 cup shredded carrots 

  • ½ cup shredded or finely diced pineapple 

  • ⅓ Cup unsweetened shredded coconut, optional 

  • Optional addends: ¼ Cup ground walnuts, 1/3 Cup raisins 

  • Vegan Sour Cream Frosting

  • 1 cup vegan butter, such as Miyoko’s Creamery, softened 

  • ½ cup plant-based sour cream

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 

  • 3 - 4+ cups powdered sugar  



  1. Preheat your oven to 350 F and line a standard muffin tin with 12 baking cups. Measure 1 Cup Good Karma plant milk in a liquid measuring cup and stir in lemon juice. Let sit a few minutes.  

  2. Combine 1 Cup Good Karma all ingredients up through maple syrup in a high speed blender together and blend to form a thick but pourable batter. If needed, thin out with a little additional Flaxmilk. 

  3. Transfer the batter to a mixing bowl and fold in the carrots, pineapple, coconut and other addends, if using. Spoon or pour batter into the prepared tin, filling each cup generously (almost to the top).  

  4. Bake 30 minutes, or until the tops are firm to the touch. Let cool before serving with sour cream or frosting. Enjoy! 

Vegan Sour Cream Frosting

  1. In a mixing bowl, use an electric mixer to blend vegan butter with Good Karma sour cream and vanilla. Gradually add powdered sugar, beginning with 1 Cup then increasingly approximately ½ Cup at a time until you reach your desired consistency and sweetness.
