How to Make the Best Blueberry Muffins
Making these Vegan Streusel Blueberry Muffins are really easy. Wanna know the best part? You don’t even need a mixer!
Begin by gathering all of your ingredients just to make sure you have everything you need. Once this is confirmed, you’re ready to get started!
Measure out your unsweetened almond milk and apple cider to create your vegan buttermilk. Sit this aside so that it has time to set while you’re getting your preparing your other ingredients.
In a large mixing bowl, add all of your dry ingredients- flour, sugar, baking soda and baking powder. Whisk them together to combine, then add your wet ingredients- unsweetened applesauce, vanilla extract and vegan buttermilk mixture.
Whisk everything together until the batter is mostly smooth. It’s okay if there are a few lumps, just be sure not to over-mix it because we don’t want tough muffins! Next, gently fold in the blueberries.
To make the crumb topping for these Vegan Blueberry Streusel Muffins, you’ll just need a few ingredients. Most of which you’ve already used to make the muffin batter- flour, vegan butter, cinnamon and sugar.
It’s worth mentioning that your vegan butter shouldn’t be rock hard, but shouldn’t be too soft and mushy either. As long as you’re able to press your finger into the butter without much effort, it should be fine. In this case, you’d rather have the butter be too hard than too soft.
There are two different ways you can make the crumb topping: either in a high-speed blender/food processor or by fork. Either way is pretty easy.
If you want to use a high-speed blender or food processor, simply add all of the ingredients to the container and pulse until crumbly. Note that you may also need to use a spoon to scrape down the sides occasionally.
How to Make Blueberry Muffins Vegan
Making Vegan Streusel Blueberry Muffins is actually pretty easy. If you look at the ingredients below, you’ll notice that a lot of these ingredients are pretty standard baking ingredients.
The vegan buttermilk mixture (almond milk and apple cider vinegar) will help to create moist and delicious blueberry muffins that I know you’ll love.
In addition, a simple swap with non-dairy alternatives like vegan butter and almond milk helped to create vegan versions of traditional blueberry muffins.
How to Store Blueberry Muffins
If you’re planning to hang on to these Vegan Streusel Blueberry Muffins for a while, it’s best to store them in an air-tight container. I left mine out on the counter because my house was pretty cool, but the safest thing to do is to store them in the refrigerator for the best results.
When you’re ready to eat them, simply pop them in the microwave for 8-10 seconds (may depend on your microwave) and they’ll be ready to eat! Alternatively you can leave them on the counter for a bit until they’ve reached room temperature.
I love these Vegan Streusel Blueberry Muffins because they’re easy to make, plus they’re moist and delicious! My husband and I were racing against each other to get to the last few!
If you’re looking for a snack or quick breakfast item on the go, this is a great option. I made these on a Sunday and they kept really well throughout the week.
