Vegan Blueberry Muffins

September 5th, 2019 | Posted by Milana in Breakfast/Brunch | Recipes - (0 Comments)


1 Cup + 1 Tbsp Unsweetened Vanilla Ripple Milk

1 tsp Apple Cider Vinegar (I used Trader Joe’s unfiltered organic)

3/4 maple syrup

1 tsp vanilla extract

1/3 cup avocado oil

2 Cups White Whole Wheat Flour

1/4 tsp salt (I use sea salt by Trader Joe’s)

2 tsp Baking Powder (aluminum free)

1 Tbsp Corn Starch (I use Rapunzel Organic)

1-1/2 cups fresh blueberries (I used organic)


Heat oven to 400°F. Line 1.5 muffin pans with liners and grease with cooking spray. I use organic coconut oil (2 sprays in each liner). In a small bowl, mix together the milk with the vinegar and let thicken (you’re creating a vegan buttermilk). In the meantime, in a medium bowl mix together all the dry ingredients except the blueberries. In the buttermilk mixture, add the rest of the wet ingredients and whisk until combined well. Pour it into the flour mixture and stir until incorporated. DO NOT OVER-MIX. Fold in the blueberries gently. Use a 2oz. Cookie scoop or 1/4 cup to measure out the batter into the liners. Top with 3 blueberries and bake for 20-22 min until golden.

Let cool in the pan for 5 min then transfer to cooling rack.

To Store: They store well sealed tight in a ziploc bag on the counter for 3 days. In the fridge, for up to a week and in the freezer for 3 months.

Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

December 27th, 2017 | Posted by Milana in Breakfast/Brunch | Recipes - (0 Comments)

Yields: 12 muffins

Serving size: 1 muffin


4 over-ripe bananas

1/3 cup melted coconut oil or unsalted butter

1/2 cup sugar

1 egg

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 tsp baking soda

Pinch of salt

1 cup white whole wheat flour

1/2 cup Unbleached all purpose flour

1/2 cup semi sweet chocolate chips (plus more for the top)

1/2 cup dark chocolate chunks


Preheat oven to 350F.

Grease your muffin liners with a quick spray of cooking oil. (Tip: I’ve used liners without this technique before but because the muffins are so moist half of the muffin tends to just stick to the liner and make a mess).

Peel your bananas and throw them in a big bowl with the melted oil and smash it all together with a fork or use a food processor. Keep blending until there’s no big chunks of banana left and the mixture is creamy and smooth.

Add the sugar, egg and vanilla and mix just until combined. Add salt and baking soda and stir. Pour in flour and mix. The mix doesn’t have to be perfectly blended,  just try and get rid of all the flecks of flour. Dump in chocolate chips mix them around a bit so every bite has some chocolatey goodness.

Divide into muffin tins using a quarter cup ice cream scoop. Bake until cake tester or toothpick comes out clean. Usually 18-20 min.
