Vegan Blueberry Muffins

A couple of days back I stumbled upon blueberry muffin recipe using maple syrup instead of sugar. It also used a considerable quantity of whole wheat flour and ground flax seed. I decided to incorporate some of these changes in the already popular vegan blueberry muffins I have in this blog and I was very pleased with the result and decided to share it with you all.

If you have tried the original vegan blueberry muffins I have here, I’m pretty sure that you are going to love this one too because taste wise and texture wise it is pretty much the same but this new version is healthier than the old one. Now who wouldn’t love this! I used whole wheat pastry flour instead of a combination of whole wheat flour and all purpose flour. Since I have baked quite a lot with whole wheat pastry flour we didn’t miss the white flour in the recipe. The pastry flour gave a nice texture and nutty flavor to the soft and delicate muffins. It wasn’t too sweet either. Just perfect.

Vegan Whole Wheat Blueberry MuffinsCan whole grain and vegan blueberry muffins be as tasty as its white counterpart? Try this recipe and you will definitely agree with me.
Ingredients:
  • 1/4 cup Ground Flaxseed
  • 1 and 3/4 cups Whole Wheat Pastry Flour
  • 1 and 1/2 teaspoons Baking Soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 cup Almond Milk
  • 1 tablespoon Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1/4 cup Vegetable Oil
  • 1/2 cup Maple Syrup
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 2 teaspoons Orange Zest
  • 1 and 1/2 cups Blueberries (fresh or frozen)
  • As needed Sugar for sprinkling on muffin tops (optional)
Procedure:
  1. Preheat oven to 375F/190C for 15 minutes. Line a muffin tin with paper liners and grease it well with non stick cooking spray.
  2. Mix together the almond milk and vinegar; set aside.
  3. In a large bowl combine together the ground flax seed, flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt.
  4. In a medium bowl, whisk together the maple syrup, oil, milk mixture, vanilla extract and orange zest.
  5. Make a well in the dry ingredients and stir in the wet ingredients with a rubber spatula until just moistened. Fold in blueberries.
  6. Scoop the batter into the prepared muffin cups; about 3 tablespoons in each. Sprinkle the tops with sugar.
  7. Bake the muffins until the tops are golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center of the muffins comes out clean which is about 15-20 minutes. I took out mine after 17 minutes.
  8. Transfer the tin to a cooling rack and leave it there for 5 minutes. Then remove the muffins out of the tin and let it cool completely.
My Notes:
  1. If you are not able to find whole wheat pastry flour, then you can use 1 cup of whole wheat flour and 3/4th cup of all purpose flour as mentioned in the original recipe.
  2. If using frozen blueberries, do no thaw it because it will bleed.
  3. I guess you could use any non dairy milk instead of almond milk.
  4. If you are a spice fan you can use up to a teaspoon of cinnamon.
  5. Since we prefer mildly sweet treats, I did not sprinkle sugar on top of the muffins.

    Can we use regular milk instead of almond milk?

    • Madhuram says:

      Yes you could K. The idea of mixing vinegar with non-dairy milk is a vegan substitution for buttermilk. So I’m wondering if you could straightaway add 1 cup of buttermilk instead.

    Congrats Madhu, for completing 3 years of successful blogging.
    Really your blog is awesome, i can’t say in words how much i like
    your blog.
    Can we use whole whear flour instead of whole wheat pastry
    flour. Actually what is the difference between those 2 flours.
    Always i made cakes with all purspose flour.
    I have a request to u. Can you post some Indian version of
    of pastries of any flavour.

    • Madhuram says:

      Thanks Jayasree. Whole wheat pastry flour is made from soft wheat and it has a fine texture suitable for baking cakes, pastries etc and still has the goodness of whole wheat. As mentioned in the notes section, you could use 1 cup of whole wheat flour and 3/4th cup of all purpose flour instead of 1 and 3/4th cups of whole wheat pastry flour.
