Simple Vegan Fresh Blueberry and Lemon Muffins

I’m not much of a muffin person. I think they’re kinda silly… just like cake. But I was inspired to make blueberry muffins after a character on a show I was watching was eating a muffin. I could not shake the craving. So I made the muffins and they were delicious, so that sounds like a win to me!

These were so easy and very basic and I already had all of the ingredients. I didn’t add anything in to make them healthier than cake, but sometimes you need to live a little!

Recipe originally found here. Follow link for baking instructions.

Ingredients

– 1 cup milk of choice (I used cashew)
– 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
– 2 cups all-purpose flour
– 2½ teaspoons baking powder
– ¼ teaspoon baking soda
– pinch salt
– ½ cup sugar
– ¼ cup canola oil
– 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
– zest of 1 lemon
– 1½ cups fresh blueberries

These muffins were a winning recipe and if I ever feel the desire to make muffins again I’ll probably make these again. However, they were a bit too much like these vanilla cupcakes and more like a snack or dessert than a breakfast food item.
