Dairy Free Mini Pancake Muffins

EASY Dairy Free Mini Pancake Muffins recipe!  These pancake muffins don't require butter or milk and are perfect for breakfast or snacking! Each muffin has a sugar mixture crumble made with brown sugar and applesauce on top!  I love serving them with maple syrup! This recipe is easy to make completely vegan too!
