    • Press Mix (do not change the default Mix time).
    • Press Start.
    • Press Dispense, open spigot and fill your container with almond milk.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Line a muffin tin with cupcake liners. If not using liners, grease lightly with coconut oil or spray with baking spray. Set aside.
  • Mix the almond milk and apple cider vinegar together. Let sit for at least 3 minutes to create a vegan buttermilk.
  • In a large bowl, mix all the dry ingredients together. Set aside.
  • In a smaller bowl, mix all the wet ingredients together slow to incorporate, then a bit quicker to mix together properly.
  • Pour the wet ingredients into the wet and mix until combined.
  • Add in the diced jalapeños and mix gently.
  • Spoon equally throughout the 12 muffin cups.

  • Add a thin slice of jalapeño to the top of each and press down gently.
