Vegan Blueberry Muffins

Vegan Blueberry Muffins


“I came up with this because I couldn’t find easy baked-goods recipes for vegans,” says Laurie Dolan, a California resident and a mother of two boys. “I saw in a PETA newsletter a while back that you could substitute applesauce and baking powder for eggs, so I started experimenting with basic cookie, cake, and muffin recipes. One of my favorite results was this blueberry muffin recipe.”  
  • ¼ cup soy margarine
  • ½ cup unsweetened applesauce
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 Tbs. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • ½ cup soymilk
  • 2 cups fresh blueberries
  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Line 1/3-cup muffin cups with paper liners, or spray with cooking spray.
  2. Mix all ingredients together in mixing bowl. Spoon into muffin cups, filling three-quarters full.
  3. Bake 35 minutes, or until tops are firm. Cool slightly on rack.

just mixed up the batter and have them in the oven. I added quite a bit of almond milk (i dont drink soy) yet the consistency was still VERY thick.Is it supposed to be?

Awesome, Awesome, Awesome. Used wheat four instead. Muffins came out super sweet and beautifully golden brown. Great vegan treat.

Is there anyway I could make them without butter or soy margarine? I need to, becasue I just don't want to go to the store, and I don't have butter or margarine.....

the only thing i did differently was cook it for 25 min instead of 35. i think my oven is a little wacko. otherwise, SOOOO DELICIOUS!!

Thanks for this recipe. I love muffins for snacks and these will definitely be great. I wonder if carnivore hubby will notice the difference??

I made these last night for a friend at work who is vegan...they are delicious~ My friend has already eaten 2 this morning and told me they are wonderful. I used whole wheat flour but otherwise followed the recipe.

I made these GF/DF/SF & they still turned out pretty well. I used Jule's GF flour, soy free Earth Balance & vanilla hemp milk (Trader Joe's). The batter was very thick & the muffins were somewhat dense but not leaden at all. They smelled wonderful in the oven & were devoured by everyone. I will make them again. I might try using apples & cinnamon next time instead of blueberries.

I used coconut milk and substituted raspberries for blueberries. (they were on sale and blueberries were not) They were really good!

Steph - 2011-05-07 19:30:33

The batter was super thick so I had to add more soy milk. They are in the oven, so I'll see how they come out!

How did you convert them to gluten free? What type of flour did you use?

Troi - 2011-03-03 23:52:32

pretty good recipe, though I wouldn't put half the sugar in next time. Instead of using all soy margarine (im getting sick of soy) I used half veg. oil and half the soy marg. It was still a little thick when i added the applesauce so I added vanilla almond milk and left out the vanilla extract. Even though they were a bit too sugary (i mean applesauce and almond milk are sweet enough) they still tasted moist (but not squishy vegan moist) and delicious! To the second batch I added a little bit of knob creek, and substituted vanilla extract with almond milk. I gave them to my boyfriend's band rehearsing downstairs and they inhaled them even while piping hot. A- recipe.

I cut the sugar in half, and added 1/4 cup ground flax seed. Also used some chia gel as part of the applesauce, because i didn't have enough. works similar to a flax egg. sooo good!
