Vegan Mini Cheese ‘n Chive Muffins
Preparation time: 10 min. Cooking time: 20-22 min. Easy - for beginners Serves: 12


These tasty little muffins are great as a snack any time, not just for entertaining. Normally vegan cheese doesn't go over too well, but because it is baked into the muffins, it simply lends a great flavor without imparting any odd texture.


  • 3/4 cup Earth Balance (or other non-dairy butter)
  • 2 cups Follow Your Heart Cheddar Cheese (or other vegan cheese), shredded
  • 2 cups unbleached white flour
  • 1 cup dairy-free sour cream
  • 1 Tablespoon baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons chives (can use the kind in a spice jar, or use chop fresh chives)


  1. Preheat oven to 375F.

  2. Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add cheese and cook 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Stir in flour, sour cream, baking powder and chives. Mixture will be very thick.

  3. Spoon batter into ungreased mini muffin pans, filling 2/3 full. Bake for 20 to 22 minutes. Remove muffins from pans immediately. Serve warm, gently reheating if necessary.
