This recipe was a roaring success with my brother, who is might i add a very picky person. He is not as supportive of my vegan lifestyle but then again there are not many people around me who are. It gets tough, but instead of arguing or trying to convince my friends and family i just keep on cooking and preparing delicious meals and i almost always hear hmmmm it tastes real good, i didn’t know vegan could taste good. It tastes good because it is cruelty free and prepared with love and life in mind.
this recipe is based on the recipe by cakeinvasion
for 12 delicious muffins
230 gram whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 Tablespoon Vanilla ( not essence but actual vanilla)
zest from half a lemon
zest from half an orange
pinch of salt
6 Tablespoons of brown rice syrup( or agave or whatever you have but the sweeter the syrup the less you will need to use)
5 Tablespoons of coconut oil ( or whatever oil you use)
150ml freshly squeezed orange juice
1 Tablespoon of freshly squeezed lemon juice
130g Blueberries ( i used frozen ones, but fresh works well too. If you like a lot of blueberries in muffins use 150g)
2 Tablespoons of whole wheat flour.
Preheat oven to 175 degree Celsius.
In a mixing can add in- if you have a lot of time sift in- the 230 grams of flour with the baking powder in a mixing bowl.
Add in the vanilla, salt and zests. Mix in all the ingredients with a wooden spoon.
Now add the oil, brown rice syrup, orange juice and lemon juice. Mix all everything well, stop mixing when the mixture is smooth and lump free.
In a separate bowl gently mix the blueberries with 2 tablespoons of flour and make sure the blueberries are covered with flour. This is done so that the blueberries don’t get all squashed up.
Place the blueberries into the mixture and fold them in gently.
Line muffin tin with cupcake liners.
Portion out one and a half a heaped tablespoon of the muffin mix in each liner.
Place in oven and bake for 20 to 25 mins.
Set aside to cool, it is essential to let them cool as this allows the to firm up!
Enjoy these with tasty date paste or with a jam or spread of your choice as these wont be that sweet,- depending on what sweetener you use- I used brown rice syrup and they were perfectly fine for me but for those who like it sweeter there is an array of spreads to use! or devour these sprinkled on top of nicecream or with a cool smoothie the possibilities are endless really!
Tip: you can lick out the raw mix as it is vegan! Oh yea 😀
