  • 1 package 8 oz store-bought dairy-free puff pastry (check ingredients for egg and dairy-free; some brands are naturally vegan)
  • cup almond flour
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tbsp dairy-free butter melted
  • 2 tbsp unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp almond extract
  • 2 tbsp all-purpose flour


  • ¼ cup sliced almonds
  • Powdered sugar for dusting optional

Syrup (Optional):

  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp almond extract


Prepare the Puff Pastry:

  • Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  • Thaw the dairy-free puff pastry according to the package instructions.
  • Lightly grease a muffin tin or line with muffin cups.

Prepare the Almond Filling:

  • In a bowl, combine the almond flour, granulated sugar, melted dairy-free butter, applesauce, vanilla extract, almond extract, and all-purpose flour.
  • Mix until smooth and well combined.

Assemble the Muffins:

  • Roll out the thawed puff pastry on a lightly floured surface.
  • Cut the pastry into 3×3-inch squares.
  • Gently press each square into the prepared muffin tin, allowing the corners to stick out.
  • Place a heaping teaspoon of the almond filling in the center of each puff pastry square.
  • Fold the corners over the filling, pressing gently to seal.

Add the Topping:

  • Sprinkle the tops with sliced almonds.
  • Optionally, drizzle with the maple syrup mixture.


  • Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the pastry is golden brown and puffed.
  • Allow the muffins to cool in the tin for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.


  • Dust with powdered sugar if desired.
  • Enjoy warm or at room temperature.


  • Puff Pastry: Many store-bought puff pastries are naturally vegan. Always check the label to ensure they are egg-free and dairy-free.
  • Almond Flour: Adds a rich almond flavor to the filling. You can finely grind blanched almonds if almond flour is unavailable.
  • Muffin Size: If your muffin tin is larger or smaller, adjust the puff pastry squares and filling accordingly.
