Vegan Blueberry Muffins


Hi! How’s your weekend going?

I’m headed up to Gettysburg, PA to watch my husband complete the 110 mile Wounded Warrior Ride! I can’t wait to take pictures!

I don’t think I’ll back to the blog until Tuesday… but I wanted to leave you a quick post… and these muffins 🙂

Doesn’t this picture just make you want to reach through your computer and take a big bite!?!!

Look at those blueberries!

Nicole! You’d be so proud of me! I only used 1/2 cup of oil in this recipe 😉


Blueberry muffins are my absolute favorite muffin!

It’s a classic…

To me… it’s the chocolate chip cookie of all muffins.


What I love about this recipe is you don’t need a mixer… just a large bowl and spoon.


Oh… and did I mention they’re vegan?!?!!


  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 1/4 cup ground flax seed (flax meal)
  • 1/2 cup natural cane sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups applesauce
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries


Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Line a muffin tin with liners. Spray a little nonstick cooking spray into each muffin cup liner. Less muffin sticks to the muffin liner this way.

In a large bowl, whisk flour, baking soda, and salt until combined. In a separate bowl, combine canola oil, flax meal, sugar, applesauce, and vanilla. Whisk until mixed through.

Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Stir until combined. Gently fold in blueberries.

Using an ice cream scoop, drop batter into muffin cups.

Bake for 24 minutes or until golden brown and toothpick comes out clean.

Have a great Sunday! See you on Tuesday 🙂

    Your muffins look fantastic! The last time i tried to make vegan blueberry muffins, they came out as a massive FAIL. These give me hope!

    I love how you are supporting the military with the Wounded Warriors ride! Have fun!

    You are singing my song with these muffins! I’ve been looking for a good recipe to try- thanks for the great post! I either need to buy flax or replace them with oat bran or quick oats (so I can make them this morning! haha)

    I love a good from scratch muffin recipe that doesn’t give you a muffin top. 😉

    I hope the run went well! Oh, and I definitely want to reach through my screen and steal one of these. They look so delicious and moist. Blueberry muffins are my favorite kind.

    Yummy!!! I can’t wait to make these. And, can’t wait to read your recap of the race and see pictures 🙂

    Look so good. I’m always looking for muffin recipes for my son. They’re just easy for those little kids to eat! So I’m always trying to pack mine with nutrients and less and less sugar as possible!

    Thanks for sharing!

    I am proud of you! They look incredible! I will surely be making…since they have 1/2 cup of oil and all 😉 You know I’m always up for a new muffin recipe and I love vegan baking all the way…so much more filling with some healthy fat 🙂

    Looking forward to the warrior pictures!

    I am not a huge fan of blueberries by themselves, but in muffins, I am all in!

    Hope you had a fun weekend!

    I hope your husband did well and you had fun watching him! I love muffins and mine usually aren’t vegan so I’ll have to try these. The blueberries look amazing and so does the muffin!
