The bacon coconut oil is ugh-mazing with this recipe!
- 8 slice Uptons Naturals vegan bacon
- 1 1/3 cups almond milk
- 1 teaspoon Apple cider vinegar
- 4 tbsp hot sauce
- 2 large Follow Your Hearth Vegan eggs with ice cold vegan milk
- 1 1/3 cups yellow cornmeal
- 1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 3/4 teaspoon fine salt
- 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- 1 1/2 sticks chilled unsalted vegan butter, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
- 5 large scallions (green onions), chopped
- 3 tbsp coconut sugar
- 1 cup shredded Follow Your Heart Vegan Cheddar
- 1 tbsp Vegan Magic bacon cooking oil or just coconut oil
- Cook the faux bacon in coconut oil in a small pan over medium heat until lightly crispy.
- In a large bowl, whisk together the almond milk and apple cider vinegar, let it stand and curdle. Add hot sauce with the Follow Your Heart eggs mixed with almond milk. Combine the cornmeal, flour, coconut sugar, baking powder, salt and pepper, whisk to combine. Throw in a food processor with the cold butter cubes.
- Pulse until the butter is cut in finely and the mixture resembles a coarse meal. Pour the dry ingredients over the almond milk mixture.
- Scatter the bacon, vegan cheese, and green onions over the batter. Using a thin, flexible spatula, fold the batter together, scraping up the liquids from the bottom each time and turning the bowl as you fold. Do not over-fold; some dry patches are fine. Using a rounded 1/3 cup of batter for each muffin, fill the paper liners.
- Bake until puffed and browning at edges, and a tester inserted into the center comes out clean, 18 to 20 minutes. Let the muffins stand 5 to 10 minutes. Twist each muffin in place to loosen the edges from the pan. Lift the muffins out onto a rack and cool.
