Jam-Filled Soda Bread Muffins (Dairy-Free)

These low-sugar muffins are just like soda bread - with a rustic, raised texture. But they're baked in single-serve portions and stuffed with jam.
Recipe type: Breakfast
Cuisine: American
Serves: 12 muffins
  • 1¼ cups whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1 cup spelt flour (I used whole spelt)
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1¼ cups plain dairy-free milk beverage
  • ¼ cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 2 tablespoons honey, raw sugar, or agave nectar
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • ¼ cup jam, all-fruit spread, or chia jam
  1. Preheat your oven to 400ºF, and lightly grease 12 muffin cups.
  2. Combine the vinegar and soymilk in a medium-sized bowl or glass measuring cup, and allow it to sit as the vinegar “curdles” the soymilk.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together the flours, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  4. Measure the milk beverage in a liquid measuring cup. Whisk in the applesauce, sweetener, oil, and vinegar.
  5. Pour the wet mixture into the dry mixture and gently stir until just combined. Do not overmix!
  6. Place 1 heaping tablespoon of the batter in each muffin cup. Top each mound of batter with 1 teaspoon of jam. Top the jam with the remaining batter (another heaping tablespoon per muffin cup).
  7. Bake for 15 minutes. Remove the muffins and enjoy warm or let cool.
