Vegan Blueberry Muffins | How to make Vegan Blueberry Muffins


Baking is always therapeutic, especially when baking with my kids. My little one is a tad too fascinated with muffins and she picked the dish for this week’s #FoodieMondayBloghop when Archana gave recipes with plant-based milk.Although I had Badam Thandai (keeping in mind that Holi is just around the corner), I went with the kid’s demands and baked her muffins after a long break ! 

Edit: The nutritional advantage of using Nut-based milk as compared with traditional dairy milk can be read here.

Our host for the week, Archana has an amazing collection of bakes and dishes from around the world, and she is a great friend too ! She did a wonderful guestpost for me a while ago, and am sure you would all love to read it :-) 

Read on to see what plant based milk was used to make this amazing Vegan Blueberry muffins that we loved to bake together on an early Sunday morning. 

It was a wonderfully mad Sunday juggling Oats Dosa on the tava and these muffin preps on the other kitchen counter. Thankfully, I didn’t mess up both, and there you have a lovely breakfast / snack on the go, for both kids and adults. The only things I would make differently next time is to swap the all purpose with wholewheat or Oats flour as I ran out of both at the last minute AND to use brown sugar instead of refined sugar 

(PS - a submission - this is perhaps the FIRST bake I have made with maida and refined sugar after 6-7 years and my palate took some getting used to ! ). 

But the kids liked it for a change, and I look forward to peacefully packing their boxes with this muffin with a fruit for a filling snack.

Makes : 9~10 medium sized muffins
Prep time - 15 mins, Bake time  - 20~22 minutes

Ingredients: {1 cup = 240ml}

Dry ingredients:

All purpose Flour - 1.5 cups (can sub partially or entirely with Wholewheat flour / Oats flour with slightly varying results)
Baking powder - 2 tsp
Cornflour - 1.5 tsp
Salt - 1/2 tsp

Wet ingredients :
Granulated Sugar - 1/2 cup (the muffins are mildly sweet, but you can adjust accordingly)
Neutral Oil - 1/4 cup
Coconut Milk - 2/3 cup + 3 TBSP cup water** (adjust consistency with more / less water)
Vanilla Extract  - 1 tsp
Dried Blackberries - 1/3 cup + more as required 


How to:
Preheat oven to 180 C / 375 F and line the muffin pans after greasing them lightly. 
In a bowl, add the wet ingredients and whisk them well till the sugar dissolves. 
In another bowl, sift the dry ingredients twice over. Roll the blackberries in a tsp or two of flour and keep aside.
Now add the wet mixture to the dry mix in batches, fold gently. Add  the floured black berries and again fold. 
Scoop the mixture into the muffin pans. Bake for 20-22 minutes or till a cake skewer comes clean (Mine were blond at 20 mins, so I increased the temp to 190C and baked for a further 1-2 min)
Once baked, cool on wire rack. Store in an airtight container and refrigerate any left overs 
Enjoy warm with a cuppa !

  1. I'm no good at baking, so I'm always awed when I see people turning out these awesome baked goodies, often with alternative, healthier flours and sweeteners. This recipe of yours, for instance!

    The muffins look just perfect. I'm sure they made for a lovely treat! :)

  2. Ahhh, so tempting, wish I could have one. Haven't baked muffins in a very long time. Next time try soaking the dried fruit before using, makes the fruit more succulent.

  3. I love APF bakes too for a change and as long as the ingredients are home made without additives, it is good to consume once in a while. Not to forget they taste so delicious. Loved the replacement of milk with coconut milk. Adds richness, a slight sweet taste and goes well with berries.
