Ingredients

Wet:

  • 1 cup non dairy milk , such as almond or soy or lite coconut milk
  • 3 tbsp non dairy yogurt, or use 2 tbsp applesauce or non dairy milk
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar or other vinegar
  • 1/3 cup unrefined sugar , use 1 tbsp more for sweeter
  • 1/4 cup oil (neutral such as organic safflower or canola , see note for oilfree
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • a few drops of almond extract , optional but wonderful

Dry:

  • 2 cups of flour (I use a mix of unbleached all purpose (1.25 cup) and wheat (3/4 cup))
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • Zest of a lime
  • 2 cups fresh blueberries

Streusel:

  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar or brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp vegan butter softened, or oil

Instructions

  • Line a muffin pan. Preheat the oven to 400 deg F (204 deg C). In a bowl, mix in the wet ingredients until the sugar is fully combined.┬áIn another bowl, whisk 1 3/4 cup flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add spices of choice if you like. See GF option in Notes below. (Optional: Add 2 tbsp almond flour to the dry for additional texture).
  • Fold the dry into the wet until just about combined. Add more flour if needed 1 tbsp at a time to make just slightly thick batter (you might not need any depending on the flours used).
  • Add lime zest. Add 1 tbsp flour to the blueberries and toss lightly then add to the batter. Drop spoonfuls of the batter into the lined muffin pan, not more than 2/3 full.
  • Make the streusel: Mix the flour and sugar in a bowl. Add the vegan butter/ oil and mix in to make fat crumbs
  • Sprinkle generous streusel on the batter. Bake at 400 deg F (204 C) for 16 mins, reduce temp to 375 (190 C) and bake for another 7 to 8 mins.
  • Cool for 10 mins, then remove from the pan, Cool completely and store on the counter for the day or refrigerated for upto 4 days, Freeze for upto a month.

Notes

  • To use frozen berries: Wash the berries to remove excess juices, then toss in flour and add to the batter
  • To make the muffins Gluten-free: Mix 3/4 cup white rice flour, 1 1/4 cup almond flour, 1/3 cup potato starch, and 1 tbsp chia seeds/flax seed meal. Use 1 3/4 cup of the flour mix and add more as needed.
  • To make the muffin Oil-free: Substitute the oil in the batter with 2 tbsp applesauce. For the streusel, use smooth softened nut butter
