Recipe: Vegan Blueberry Muffins
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 cup unsweetened almond milk (or any unsweetened plant-based milk)
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil or melted coconut oil
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
- Optional: Zest of 1 lemon for extra flavor
Preparing the Batter:
- Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Line a muffin tin with paper liners or lightly grease it.
- In a large mixing bowl, combine the all-purpose flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Mix well.
- In a separate bowl, combine the unsweetened almond milk, vegetable oil (or melted coconut oil), and vanilla extract. Mix until thoroughly combined.
- Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Be careful not to overmix; a few lumps are okay.
- Gently fold in the blueberries and lemon zest, if using. If you’re using frozen blueberries, you can add them directly to the batter without thawing.
Filling and Baking:
- Spoon the muffin batter into the prepared muffin tin, filling each cup about 2/3 full.
- Bake in the preheated oven for 18-20 minutes, or until the muffins are golden brown on top and a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean.
Cooling and Serving:
- Remove the muffins from the oven and let them cool in the muffin tin for a few minutes. Then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.
