Gluten-Free Vegan Blueberry Muffins Ingredients
So, with some simple swaps, you've got just the muffin you need. This recipe is whole grain, naturally sweetened, and incredibly easy. Here's the major ingredients:
- Almond flour
- Gluten-free oat flour
- Ground flaxseed
- Unsweetened almond milk
- Lemon juice
- Maple syrup
- Olive oil
- Vanilla extract
- Fresh blueberries
And, for those that love that sweet, bakery-style crunch atop their blueberry muffins? Feel free to sprinkle raw cane sugar on top before baking.
The use of almond flour in this recipe is two-fold. It makes for a delicate crumb while also providing a good dose of protein.
Gluten-free oat flour
Adding fiber, antioxidants, and more protein to the mix, oat flour supplies the whole grain goodness.
No white sugar in these muffins. Maple syrup makes these easy blueberry muffins just the right amount of sweet.
Unsweetened almond milk
With a little lemon juice added to your almond milk, the result is a dairy-free way to get that buttermilk flavor.
