How to make Oil Free Vegan Blueberry Muffins
Firstly, in a mixing bowl I combined soaked flaxmeal and brown sugar together and beat it with electric hand mixer at a medium speed.
Secondly, I added rest of wet ingredients to it and beat it again with the hand electric hand mixer for about 2-3 minutes.
Next, in another mixing bowl I combined all the dry ingredients and mixed it with a spoon making sure that there are no lumps of baking soda.
Thereafter, I added the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and beat it at a minimum speed with electric hand mixer.
Afterwards, I folded in blueberries to the batter.
Lastly, I poured the batter evenly in to the lined muffin tray and topped them with dry oats and more blueberries.
Then, I placed the muffin tray in a pre-heated oven at 350-degree Fahrenheit for 20 minutes or until the tester came out clean.
I am sure you all must be drooling by now for these healthy vegan blueberry muffins. It’s quite frequent in my home and often we devour these for breakfast.
- It is important that flaxmeal be soaked for about 10 minutes. So as to save time I usually soak it first and then start pre-heating and preparing. Moreover, I soak the flaxmeal in the same mixing bowl in which I plan to mix other wet ingredients in order to minimize dishes.
- While mixing the dry ingredients make sure that baking soda is mixed properly and there are no lumps. Sometimes, in order to make it smooth I even rub the dry mixture with my hands to make sure that there are no soda lumps in the flour mixture.
- Importantly, use muffin liner in the muffin tray so you do not even need to grease it. If you plan to pour the batter directly in the muffin tray then you may want to grease each muffin holes with a cooking spray.
- It is advisable to bring all the ingredients to the room temperature before you start with this recipe to get the perfectly risen vegan blueberry muffins.
They taste best when fresh out of the oven. We personally like these muffins little warm. However, the leftovers can be refrigerated in an air tight container for about 2 weeks.
I have made it absolutely oil free that means no butter as well. Moreover, I used oat flour instead of white flour and used flaxmeal as egg replacer which adds fiber and omega 3 to this dessert. Again, I used brown sugar which is less processed that white sugar. Overall, these blueberry muffins are comparatively healthy and guilt free.
I used fresh blueberries in this recipe. I have not tried it with frozen ones so therefore, I insist you on using fresh blueberries for these muffins.
You may use gluten free oat flour in this recipe with the same proportions. The baking time varies that is bake up to 25-30 minutes or until the tester comes out clean.
