Vegan English Muffins

Vegan English muffins are one of the easiest breads to make. You simply mix the ingredients in a bowl, wait for the dough to rise (this is probably the hardest step in the whole process!), shape the dough and cook them on a griddle. I love than you don’t even need to turn on the oven for these tasty muffins.

The recipe is for 8 English muffins, but feel free to double, even triple, the ingredients. I usually make a big batch and store them in the freezer. They store well for up to two months. Whenever I want one, I thaw them at room temperature, then pop them in the toaster. They come out soft and fluffy in the middle, with crunchy chewy edges…so good!

What you will need to make these vegan English muffins are 7 simple, pantry ingredients plus water:

  • dry yeast
  • soy milk
  • cane sugar
  • vegan butter
  • flour
  • salt
  • cornmeal

A detailed recipe with measurements is in the recipe card below.

Ingredient Notes

For flour, I use bread flour (strong flour) to give the muffins a chewy texture. I have also used whole-wheat flour in a 1:1 ratio to bread flour. It worked fine, but the texture was slightly denser and did not rise as much.

Soy milk can be subbed with any other non-dairy milk.

Cornmeal is used for dusting, so that the muffins don’t stick to the griddle. If you don’t have cornmeal, you could use breadcrumbs. Finely mill breadcrumbs by grinding them in a food processor.

Vegan butter, or vegan margarine will work.

Cane sugar can be subbed with any granulated sugar in a 1:1 ratio.

Storing the Muffins

Store the muffins in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days. They can also be kept in the freezer for two months. Thaw at room temperature before toasting them.

Prep Time20 minutes
Cook Time20 minutes
Resting Time2 hours
Total Time2 hours 40 minutes
Course: Breakfast
Cuisine: American
Servings: 8 miffins


  • 150 ml water warm
  • 1 tsp active dry yeast
  • 130 ml soy milk can be subbed with any nondairy milk
  • 1 tbsp cane sugar
  • 1 1/2 tbsp vegan butter melted
  • 3 cups strong/bread flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • cornmeal for dusting can also use finely milled panko breadcrumbs


  • Mix warm water and active dry yeast, and let it sit for 10 minutes.
  • In a large bowl, combine the yeast mixture with the rest of the ingredients. Knead the dough to form a smooth ball (by hand, about 10 minutes).
  • Place the dough in a greased bowl, cover, and let it rise in a warm place until doubled in size. (1 ~ 1½ hours)
  • Divide the dough into 8 pieces, and shape each piece into balls. Place them on parchment paper, cover, and let it rise 1/2 hour.(Sprinkle some cornmeal or milled panko on the parchment paper and tops of muffins to prevent them from sticking)
  • On a greased griddle or pan, cook the muffins on medium/low heat for 10 minutes on each side, or until golden bown. If the muffins rise too much, flatten them by gently pressing down with a spatula. (Depending on the thickness of your muffins, it might take longer to cook)
  • Let the muffins cool completely, then split them open with a fork. Toast them and serve with vegan butter or your favorite jam. Enjoy!
