Vegan Blueberry Muffins

Bursting with fresh blueberries and delicately soft with a fluffy, airy texture, these blueberry muffins are quick and easy to whip up. They happen to be vegan too.

 A while ago I challenged myself to come up with a recipe for vegan blueberry muffins. 

The first batch of (banana) blueberry muffins were just BAD. It was a mistake on my part to use frozen blueberries, because they just bled into the batter as soon as I added them and the result was greenish-blue muffins. Also the texture of the muffins was way too moist, soggy even. The muffins didn’t rise at all and stayed flat until the end. It was sad.

You just need to preheat your waffle iron, make a simple batter in the meantime and you’re only a few minutes from having the best Sunday morning breakfast ever. 

No, scratch that.

Make it even better by preparing a simple berry compote to top your waffles.  Continue reading
