Ingredients for Vegan Oatmeal Blueberry Muffins:

Ingredients for making this recipe includes ripe bananas, oats, plant based milk, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, baking powder, maple syrup, and coconut oil
All the ingredients

How to Make Gluten-free Vegan Oatmeal Blueberry Muffins

  • Preheat oven to 350; grease or spray the muffin or cupcake pan.
  • Add all the ingredients into the blender (except the fresh blueberries), and blend. There is no need to blend this mixture finely; be careful not to turn this into a smooth paste or sm-oo-thie.
  • Use a small spoon to scoop a small amount of dough into an already greased muffin or cupcake pan. Only add half of the intended dough, add fresh blueberries, and finally, top with the remaining dough. The goal is to have the blueberries hidden in the middle. Eventually, they will burst and release their juices as they bake. On the other hand, please feel free to add the blueberries however you deem fit. Regardless, these vegan oatmeal blueberry muffins would still taste great!
