What ingredients do I need to make these vegan blueberry muffins?
We love simple dairy free recipes that are both easy to make, but also have easy to find ingredients, most of which are already in most people’s pantries. These vegan blueberry muffins need just 10 ingredients to make and are really simple to put together. The ingredients that you need for these dairy free blueberry muffins are:

How do you make dairy free blueberry muffins?
The very first thing you want to do to make these vegan blueberry muffins, is to add the vinegar inside a 1 cup measuring cup. Fill the rest of the cup up with your unsweetened almond milk (or dairy free milk of choice). Let sit for 10 minutes. This will make a dairy free buttermilk. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
In a small bowl, you want to add all the dry ingredients and whisk together. Those ingredients are flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
In a large bowl, add both sugars and butter. Cream these together on medium speed for about 3 minutes. Then, add in the dairy free buttermilk, and vanilla. Mix again. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients bowl, and using a spatula, fold together. Lastly fold in the blueberries.
Fill muffin cups up 3/4 of the way full and then place in the oven. Cook for 5 minutes at 425 and then drop the heat to 375 for 15-17 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
For the optional crumble topping, add all the ingredients together and mix with a fork. Add on top before putting in the oven.
What is the key to making the vegan blueberry muffins look like bakery style muffins?
We really want to give the bakery feel to these vegan blueberry muffins. We believe that no matter dietary needs or preferences, everyone should be able to enjoy high quality food. We tested these blueberry muffins with and without regular wrappers and both of those, the dairy free blueberry muffins just kind of spill out over the top.
The key to get the taller, fluffier, perfect bakery style vegan blueberry muffins is using these tulip muffin liners. They fit in a regular muffin tin, but help keep all the ingredients into, making them absolutely perfect.
Can these be Top 8 Allergen Friendly Blueberry Muffins?
These vegan blueberry muffins use both wheat and almond milk in the recipe as we have it written. However, you can swap out the almond milk for any dairy free milk of choice. Also, you can try to make them with gluten free cup for cup flour. The King Arthur cup for cup is our favorite!
