These One Bowl Vegan Blueberry Muffins are smooth, sweet and filled with juicy wild blueberries. They also contain fiber, protein and healthy fats. They also come together in a pinch, with a short and easy-to-find list of ingredients and a single bowl. The icing top is completely optional. For everyday muffin consumption, I find that these are sweet, but for a brunch more intense on weekends, adding a touch of sweetness adds a little something.
- 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed
- 2 tablespoons filtered water
- 3/4 cup unsweetened apple sauce
- 1/3 cup coconut sugar
- 1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon melted coconut oil
- 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon aluminum-free baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
- 1/2 cup almond meal
- 1 1/2 cups whole spelt flour
- 1 cup frozen wild blueberries
- Vegan powered sugar
- Filtered water
- Preheat the oven to 350F. Line a muffin pan with 10 parchment paper liners.
- In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the ground flaxseed and water. Let stand for 5 minutes to thicken. Then, whisk in the remaining wet ingredients (i.e., apple sauce, coconut sugar, coconut oil, maple syrup, and vanilla).
- Stir in the baking soda, baking powder, sea salt, almond meal, and spelt flour into the wet mixture, one by one, in the order listed. Stop stirring when there are no flour patches at the bottom of the bowl. The batter should be quite thick and fluffy. Then, carefully fold in the frozen blueberries.
- Divide the batter equally among the 10 muffin liners. (Since the batter is quite thick and fluffy, an ice cream scoop is great for this job, but you can also go the double-spoon route.)
- Bake for 24 to 28 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean.
- Cool completely.
For the Optional Icing
Add a cup or two of powered sugar to a medium mixing bowl. Add a couple teaspoons of filtered water at a time and whisk. Repeat this process until the desired, drizzle-able consistency is reached.
Drizzle the icing over the cooled muffins and let stand until the icing sets.
Store the muffins at room temperature for up to two days, refrigerate for up to 1 week, or freeze for up to 1 month.
