Blueberry Breakfast Muffins - Dairy-Free

blueberry breakfast muffins - dairy-free

Makes 12 muffins

Ingredients:

2 cups whole wheat flour (for gluten-free could sub with all-purpose GF or oat flour)

2/3 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk

1 egg

1 tsp apple cider vinegar

¾ tsp baking powder

½ tsp baking soda

¼ tsp salt

1/3 cup oil (such as avocado or melted coconut)

1/3 cup 100% maple syrup or honey

½ tsp vanilla extract

1 heaping cup fresh or frozen blueberries

**note: if you prefer 'extra moist' muffins, mash a small ripe banana into the wet ingredients!

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

2. In a large bowl, mix together the wet ingredients – almond milk, egg (at room temperature), apple cider vinegar, oil, maple syrup, and vanilla. If using coconut oil, make sure it is melted. Combine and set aside. *note: if you prefer very moist muffins, add in a small ripe mashed banana.

3. In a separate bowl, mix together the dry ingredients – flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, and use a large spoon or spatula to combine (don’t over-mix – lumpy batter is good for allowing muffins to rise!) Add in the frozen or fresh blueberries.  

4. Spoon the batter into each muffin cup in a 12-cup muffin pan, lined with either parchment liners or sprayed with nonstick cooking spray. Fill each cup about ¾ of the way full. Top with some additional blueberries and a sprinkle of coconut sugar if desired.

5. Bake at 375 for 18-22 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean. Allow to cool in pan for a few minutes then transfer to wire racks to cool completely. Enjoy!
