Vegan Blueberry-Lemon Muffins

I haven’t posted about baking muffins in a while.

You probably thought we’ve been starving, but we’re just fine.

Here’s a little recipe for vegan blueberry-lemon muffins.

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 tbsp canola oil

Dry ingredients:

  • 1 cup white flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1/2 cup vegan sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 cup frozen blueberries

Directions:

Make your Flax Egg and Vegan Buttermilk. Set them aside to gel and curdle, respectively.

Measure, and then casually dump all the dry ingredients, except the blueberries, in the mixer. Add the wet ingredients.

Mix on a low setting.

Stir in the blueberries.

Spoon batter into muffin cups, while your kid licks the raw batter off spatula, beater, bowl, etc.

She gets to, because no eggs = no salmonella risk! Hooray!

Bake for about 18 minutes. Cool on a rack… then enjoy!

Mommy, you're the best cook.

  1. Are you eating vegan only? I have a vegan friend, and he’s always recipe hunting…though he says he’s not a good cook. Do you have some good links to share?

    1. First, hats off to your friend!

      I’ve been vegan (mostly) for about 20 years. The past 7 years (since having kids), I’ve eaten cheese now and then. But I don’t seek it out.

      WordPress is full of vegan blogs. My Reader is full of them. It’s kind of overwhelming. Especially because many of them take such good pictures that make me green with envy 😉

      The Post Punk Kitchen is my favorite vegan website, but it might be too advanced.

      http://www.savvyvegetarian.com seems to be a good one with simple, clear recipes.

      The Engine 2 Diet is a cookbook for manly men, with good transitional recipes. Another one with easy recipes is Super Market Vegan.

      If you check my post about the Vida Vegan Con, it will send you to a page that has links to some of the very best vegan bloggers.

      There’s also an annual vegan blogging event called Vegan MoFo (Month of Food) that you/he could google. Talk about overwhelming. Every vegan blogger posting recipes every single day for a month. Just too much to take in!!!!!

      I am sort of a vegan blogger. I put all my posts that have anything to do with being vegan in the Vegangelism section on my menu at the top. But I mostly post muffin recipes that I’ve invented. It’s my special niche. (Though maybe I’ll post about tofu manicotti soon… I made that earlier this week and it was AMAZING.)

      Oh, one last thought. There is one blogger on WordPress who stands out because not only are her recipes good, but her posts are stinkin’ funny. I’ll get you the link in a sec.

    2. Darn it. I just wrote you a really long response but now it’s not showing up.

      Check these blogs and cookbooks: Post Punk Kitchen, Savvy Vegetarian, Engine 2 Diet, Super Market Vegan.

      My post about Vida Vegan Con has links to good vegan bloggers.

      Also, I follow a ton of vegan bloggers on WordPress. They are legion, but my favorite is http://sweatglow.wordpress.com. She has good, simple recipes and is stinkin’ funny to boot.

      I’ve been vegan for about 20 years…well, mostly, with cheese now and then since having kids. They bring the cheese.

Say Anything. Anything at all.
