Vegan Blueberry Muffins

Blueberry Muffins from Bakerita.com | Vegan and whole wheat, but you'd never know! These muffins were a total accident, that turned out SO amazingly. I was planning on making regular blueberry muffins when I realized two things:

A) The carton of blueberries I bought was on the verge of going bad,

B) I had never shared my favorite blueberry muffins on here!

So naturally, I just started whipping up the recipe. I ran to grab an egg, and…no eggs. I’m not one for egg replacements, so I had none of that either. I spotted a banana, mashed it up and threw it in. I went to grab the milk, and realized it was heavy cream or almond milk. Erring on the side of health, I grabbed the almond milk.

Blueberry Muffins from Bakerita.com | Vegan and whole wheat, but you'd never know! The half whole wheat I did on purpose, and after mixing up all the batter, I realized they were vegan! I usually add a crumb topping to these muffins, and I promise to post the original recipe soon, but I decided to forgo it and hope these turned out decent.

Well, guys…WAY better than decent. No one even realized they were vegan OR whole wheat, they tasted so perfectly light with the exact texture of sort-of dense, but soft-of fluffy that I always want in a muffin.

I wouldn’t say they’re healthy, but they’re not as bad as the white flour, crumb-topped ones for sure. Oh, and that banana? You can’t taste it, I promise. It just gives the right amount of moisture that the lack of egg took away.

Blueberry Muffins from Bakerita.com | Vegan and whole wheat, but you'd never know! If you like to add spices to your blueberry muffins, I love a 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon and 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg in this recipe, but add whatever and however much you like! I left spices out of this batch to let the blueberries shine.

Also, if you use frozen blueberries, be aware your batter might turn a little blue! Be super careful not to overmix those babies.

So whether you’re vegan or not, these muffins are absolutely amazing and definitely worth a try, whether you’re out of eggs and milk or not! Enjoy :)

  1. These look so beautiful Rachel! I have a bunch of about to go bad blueberries that are just calling to be made into muffins like these!

    • The muffins look very good, but way to much sugar in them.

      • I made these today with 1/8 tsp SweetLeaf Organic Stevia Extract (powder).Contains no maltodextrin or even silica, in case you’re concerned ( I was.)Anyhow, they came out great and sugar free. I also subbed all white whole wheat flour. Rather than measure out a cup, I just dumped a whole pint of blueberries in. I’m sure it was close anyway.

        • Wow – I never really try eliminating sugar completely, but this is awesome to know. I think I’m going to try it this way soon, I’m intrigued! Thanks for sharing the knowledge Eric!

          • Sarah Speed says:

            If you don’t want to have the texture change too much due to the omission of sugar in the UK we have a sugar/stevia blend so you use half the sugar and it tastes just as sweet. I don’t know if this is available anywhere else, sorry :/

          • We have this in America as well! Thanks for the tip Sarah :)

  2. Your muffins look totally delicious!

  3. These sound delicious. I’m becoming a big fan of vegan baking, especially when I suddenly discover that I’m out of eggs or butter! I’ll have to keep this recipe handy for one of those occasions!

  4. Thse look amazing. I love (!!) using bananas in my mufifn recipes to make them moist and healthier. Sending this recipe to my vegan (muffin loving!) best friend. :)

  5. Good job on veganizing these babies! Not always easy to do but they look wonderful!

  6. Happening in my kitchen ASAP. These look awesome!

  7. These look delicious :)

  8. These look amazing, Rachel! Love that they’re whole wheat and that you added banana, too. Definitely saving these blueberry cuties to try soon!

  9. Wow, these muffins look so good! I have blueberries that I should be eating very soon. I’m going to try your muffins instead of just eating them. My children would always prefer baked goods (as I rarely bake for them). Thank you for the recipe. I’m already looking forward to eating these. :)

  10. Mmmm, love me some fresh blueberry muffins. And I would totally say these are healthy… at least that’s what I’ll tell myself when I eat the whole batch. :)

  11. I’m in awe that these are vegan and whole wheat! These muffins look fluffy and moist (ugh I know awful word but still true) and just like the perfect blueberry muffins!

  12. I love blueberry muffins, and adding banana in baked goods! I’ve never used it in place of eggs though–what a great idea! And these look delicious!

  13. Yay, I love this! My mom just went vegan a few months ago and I was talking to her today and she was telling me about muffins she made to have for breakfast. I’m going to send her your recipe! These look beautiful. :)

  14. This is so cool! I love accidental surprises when baking. These look wonderful! :)

  15. I love that these were an accident : ) Sometimes the best recipes happen when you least expect it! And I love blueberry muffins – although I’ve never tried a vegan version. I need to give these a try!

  16. Recipe accidents that work out are the BEST! I love that these are accidentally vegan, also love your graphics and design too!

  17. I would have never thought about using a banana to replace the eggs in a recipe. But seeing how delicious these muffins are, its a great idea!

  18. Accidental baking is sometimes the best kind! I’ll be trying these out for sure!

  19. I love recipes like this! You are halfway through making them and then, crap, I’m out of three key ingredients. Then you make a few substitutions and they turn out amazing. It feels like such an accomplishment – and these muffins definitely look like an accomplishment! Yum.

  20. This is awesome! I rarely make muffins because they always seem like an indulgence for breakfast, so having a healthier recipe definitely gives me an excuse to go for it. :)

  21. These are absolutely beautiful! Love those bright blueberries!

  22. Yum! I love whole wheat in baking :)

  23. Wow these vegan blueberry muffins looks delicious.Thanks for sharing this recipe :)

  24. Lauren Bodolus says:

    I had a huge success with this recipe! Thanks so much for the inspiration, I added 1/4 cup of rolled oats to add more of a hearty touch. I can not say enough how much I L-O-V-E-D them. Thanks again:)

    xoxo Lauren

  25. Mmmmm! This muffins are delicious. How do I know? I just made them! They turned out absolutely perfect. :)

  26. Anonymous says:

    Wow, these look like a GREAT Father’s day breakfast! These will definitely go into my recipe book…

  27. I made these this afternoon.. and they were A-mazing! Next time I might try using coconut oil instead of vegetable oil to make them a little more nutritious but they were great nonetheless!

    • So glad you liked them, Erin! I have made a different version using the same base recipe but with coconut oil instead, and they still turned out amazingly! Definitely try it :)

  28. I just made these with all whole wheat flour (instead of 1/2) and coconut oil instead of veg! They were sooo yummy! Definitely a keeper. ;)

  29. I stumbled upon your blog while looking for an easy berry muffin recipe. This was great! The changes I made:
    I used brown rice flour and coconut palm sugar, I replaced the oil with Melt buttery spread, I used applesauce in place of the mashed banana. I made raspberry muffins, added a small squeeze of lemon juice and also added 1/2 cup 65 percent cocoa dark chocolate chips. Wowza! Amazing recipe, so delicious, thank you!

  30. These are fab and exactly what I was looking for! Thank you so much for reading my mind!

  31. Wow Made these muffins this morning. Ok I did not have the milk, the banana, or the vegan butter. I substituted them for the same measurements for the following: milk for applesauce, banana for orange juice, and vegan butter for organic coconut oil. I also used the coconut oil for lining the muffin pan. Awesome, girl thank you for posting this recipe : )

    • So glad that everything worked out so well! I’ve been loving how versatile this recipe has been – so many changes have been made by so many people and all have turned out great! Glad you liked them :)

  32. Made these with my daughter and her friend this morning. WOW. We doubled the recipe and changed the following:

    Halfed the oil
    Used 5 bananas
    Added 1 tbsp of baking soda
    Added 2 tbsp of cinnamon
    Added 1 tbsp of allspice

    We also mixed all of the wet ingredients together, including the sugar, and then folded into the dry ingredients.

    This recipe was fun and amazing! You should post it to http://www.allrecipes.com and share with the world! Thanks so much!!

  33. Amy Rojo says:

    Thank you for this recipe Rachel! We are dairy & egg free, so we’re always looking for new recipes. My son’s mouth is watering now as we wait for them in the oven. And we didn’t change a thing on the recipe – yours look perfect! Happy baking!

  34. Phenomenal! Loved them, so good. On,y difference is a replaced the two flours with 1.5c of whole wheat pastry flour.

  35. I found this recipe and thought it looked good. We made the muffins last night and they are delicious! The last one disappeared this morning and I am planning on making another batch. Fantastic find – thanks for posting it. I may try to substitute applesauce for the vegetable oil to see if it can be low fat as well.

  36. I am SOooo glad I found this recipe. These muffins are amazing! I didn’t have a banana so I stole some of my daughter’s unsweetened applesauce. I want to eat every one of these muffins…Must. Walk away. From kitchen.

  37. I made these yesterday and they are great!! Thanks so much for the recipe:)

  38. These muffins are amazing. We used wild blueberries, they are delicious!

  39. just made these they were delicious. the banana flavor is ever so light.I would’ve never thought these were vegan muffins. I used vanilla f lavored coconut milk. this will be my go to recipe for muffins

  40. Greg Neidballa says:

    Made these for a second time today. A double batch with vanilla rice milk, a few more blueberries and banana than called for, brown sugar and turbinado sugar and a pinch of cinnamon. Baked two batches of 12 at 400 degrees for about 29 minutes each. Very, very good. My girls love them and so do I.

  41. donna leding plumlee says:

    I recently reviewed the official website of a banana company which said that dark brown bananas are still perfectly good to eat, esp to bake with. (They can be frozen in the skin). I was very surprised by this and had always thrown them out. No more! Into muffins they go. I cook for my very picky 2 y/o old grandson who had always eaten everything we ever gave him (mostly homemade baby food-HEALTHY!). Now all he wants is peanut butter, bread and milk! But he loves cake so I will be adding pureed veggies to these muffins. Does affect the amount of other ingredients? esp liquids?

    Please add the nutritional info including the info for sugar grams and calories. Thanks. Can not wait to try these!

    • Hi Donna,

      I don’t add the nutritional info because so many people make changes to the recipe. If you’d like to know the info, there are a number of good recipe nutrition calculators online. As for the amount of other ingredients, adding pureed veggies would definitely affect the ratio of liquid to dry ingredients, but since I’m not sure how much you were planning on adding, I’m not sure how to adjust the recipe. You may want to reduce the amount of banana and replace it with the veggie puree.

      Hope you like the recipe!

  42. These are amazing! A perfect treat to impress my my new boss who is the only vegan I know and have EVER cooked for.

    I substituted the bannana for applesauce, as I was fresh out of bannanas, and used almond milk, and they turned out beautifully; so soft, fluffy and tasty.

    To make them a bit naughtier I sprinkled the tops withs a mixture of brown sugar, cinnammon, nutmeg and oats.

    Thank you – this got rave reviews! :)

  43. I live in Spain (from NY) and miss blueberries – when we have them they are between 3 and 4 Euros for a 125 gram basket – I totally lucked out today and found the most beautiful blueberries in Lidl for 1.69€!!!! So totally bought them out and came home sooooo happy!!
    I am also vegan and was sooo happy to find this recipe – they are in the oven right now!! thanks!!!!!!!!!!!

  44. Mmm just made these with coconut oil instead of veggie oil, they are still in the oven and smell delicious ;)
