2 tbsp vegan butter 

3 tbsp all-purpose flour 

2 tbsp sugar 

Avocado oil


2-3 tbsp Sumo Citrus zest 

1/2 cup Sumo Citrus juice 

2 flax eggs (6 tbs water mixed with 2 tbsp ground flax) 

1/2 cup coconut oil

1/4 cup almond milk 

3/4 cup maple syrup 

2 cups all-purpose flour 

1 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp baking soda

Pinch of salt


  1. Start by making the streusel. Add all ingredients into a small bowl and massage together with your fingertips until breadcrumb consistency forms. Set aside. 
  2. Next, preheat the oven to 375 F and line a muffin tin with muffin cups or lightly grease with avocado oil. 
  3. Now, on to the muffins! First, make the flax eggs in a small bowl. Simply whisk together 2 tbsp ground flax with 6 tbsp of water and allow to rest for 5 mins. 
  4. While the flax eggs set, in a large bowl, whisk together the sumo citrus zest, coconut oil, and sugar. Then add the flax egg, Sumo Citrus juice, and almond milk. 
  5. Next, whisk in the baking soda, baking powder, and a pinch of salt. 
  6. Then, fold in the flour. The batter will be loose and slightly lumpy. 
  7. Spoon batter into the muffin cups. Be sure to fill them amply. It will fill 11-12. 
  8. Sprinkle with the streusel mixture and bake for 20-23 mins. Or until when inserting a toothpick, it comes out clean. Keep an eye on them, as they do cook fast! 
  9. Once baked. Remove from the tin carefully and transfer to a rack.

Best enjoyed warm with extra vegan butter! Store any leftovers in the freezer to maintain freshness. Enjoy as the Sumo Citrus flavor takes every bite of these baked delights to legendary new heights!
