These are the Best Vegan Blueberry Muffins ever, truly! They are also gluten-free, dairy-free, oil-free, yet incredibly soft, light, fluffy & just 8 ingredients.
It's my birthday today, so I have an amazingly, delicious recipe to share. Fluffy Vegan Blueberry Vanilla Muffins that are also gluten-free and oil-free. These are rich and flippin incredible. This recipe is only 8 ingredients and also happens to be vegan, gluten-free and oil-free. Seriously, just 8 purchase ingredients (+ salt) and these babies are ready in 30 minutes.
Took me a few trials messing with the ingredient ratios and liquids, but finally nailed it. The "lite" coconut milk is key in these. Store-bought almond milk is not as high in fat and will not give the same richness. I made them using just almond milk and then with the coconut milk and whoa, the coconut milk with the slight extra fat really sent these over the edge.
These are by far, my husband’s favorite.
As he was eating the first muffin, I just kept hearing “mmmmmm….oh yeah….mmmmm…wow….fabulous”. He ate 4 in the first 5 minutes.
If you aren't a blueberry fan, simply make these Chocolate Chip Muffins instead. They are the perfect base vanilla muffin recipe to throw in your favorite add-ins. If you want the perfect vegan, gluten-free, oil-free chocolate muffin recipe, then you have to make my Double Chocolate Muffins.
Easy Vegan Baking
Don't be fooled by the short ingredient list, these are hands down, some of the yummiest muffins you will sink your teeth into. No lie, just ONE muffin was enough to satisfy because it is so rich. The coconut milk makes them really rich. When these beauties bake up and rise in the oven, your eyes...and tummy...will be amazed. They are tall, fluffy and glorious.
Glorious, I tell ya. Crispy topping and ridiculously, soft inside. Bursting with juicy blueberries.
Gluten-free Baking Tips
While the baking powder has it's role here, these muffins also get significant rise from the oat flour and tapioca, both which help in the leavening and rise department. Baking powder alone can't do what all 3 ingredients combined do. Some people think just using copious amounts of baking powder is the answer to well risen baked goods, but there is such a thing as too much baking powder. Too much can make the result dry and rise too rapidly and then deflate, not to mention, leave a nasty metallic taste.
All you need to make these beauties are:
- blanched almond flour
- superfine oat flour
- tapioca starch
- baking powder
- maple syrup
- low-fat "lite" canned coconut milk
Add raw sugar to the tops before baking if desired for a crunchy topping and pretty presentation!
