  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 250ml almond/oat/pistachio milk 
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 50g chopped pistachios 
  • 80 ml vegetable oil

Method

Add the pistachios to a large bowl, cover with water and let them soak for 3-6 hours.

Preheat oven to 350F / 160C degrees.

In a 2 bowl add the milk, sugar, oil and vanilla, stir to combine. 

In a separate mixing bowl, mix the flour, baking powder and salt.

Add in the chopped pistachio and gently fold them into the batter.

Fill each muffin lined hole with batter. 

Place in the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes. Let cool and in the meantime make frosting.

Beat the butter until smooth and fluffy. Add the vegan cream cheese together with an electric mixer for a few minutes until smooth and fluffy, then beat in the lemon juice.
