Ingredients Needed For Simple Vegan Blueberry Muffins

Like I mentioned above, this recipe only requires 8 ingredients total. They’re all pretty standard ingredients as well so you probably already have everything already at home.

  • All-Purpose Flour
  • Baking Powder
  • Salt
  • Sugar
  • Non-Dairy Milk: I like almond milk but you can use soy milk, oat milk, or cashew milk if you prefer.
  • Canola or Sunflower Oil
  • Vanilla Extract
  • Fresh or Frozen Blueberries

If you have your own blueberry plants or have gone blueberry picking recently, this is a great recipe for incorporating them. The muffins freeze well so you can easily double or triple the batch to save some in your freezer for later.

How To Make Easy Vegan Blueberry Muffins

In a mixing bowl mix the flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt until combined. Then add the wet ingredients one by one. Stir for a minute or so and then stop so that the batter doesn’t get too thick and tough.

Then add in either fresh or frozen blueberries. Fold them gently into the batter making sure not to squish them.

Spoon the batter into paper lined muffin pans or lightly grease the pan with coconut oil. This recipe will make 12 regular sized muffins. Cook them in the oven for around 25 minutes until golden brown on top.

Take the pan out of the oven and let it cool for 10 minutes before removing the muffins from the pan.

Can These Blueberry Muffins Be Made Oil-Free?

Yes, to make the blueberry muffins oil-free replace the oil with the same amount of unsweetened apple sauce.

How To Make Blueberry Muffins Gluten-Free?

Yes, the all-purpose flour can be substituted at a 1:1 ratio with gluten-free all-purpose flour. This is the one I recommend.

How To Store Leftover Muffins

Leftover blueberry muffins will be fine on the counter in a covered dish for about a day. Store them in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.

If you made extra muffins for the purpose of freezing, wrap each muffin individually with parchment paper. Then place them into an airtight container or freezer bag. The muffins will stay fresh in the freezer for up to two months.
