Blueberry muffins are a breakfast staple. Everyone needs a good blueberry muffin recipe in their catalog. These healthy blueberry muffins are not only delicious, but they also just happen to be made with less than 10 ingredients that are vegan, gluten-free, oil-free and naturally sweetened. These moist yet tender muffins are made with a mix of almond flour and oat flour, are naturally sweetened with maple syrup, and stuffed with bursting with juicy blueberries.

The secret to the best blueberry flavor and texture is using frozen blueberries. Frozen blueberries release their juices perfectly as opposed to fresh blueberries.

This recipe makes a half batch (6 muffins), but feel free to double the recipe for snacking throughout the week or for freezing for later!

Ingredients in Healthy Blueberry Muffins

  • Oat Flour – the first grain-free flour in the muffins that provides heart-healthy nutrients. I usually make my own oat flour by blending oats into a flour using my Vitamix.
  • Almond Flour – the second grain-free flour in the muffins that’s high in nutrients and fiber. 
  • Maple Syrup – our natural sweetener.
  • Non-Dairy Milk – any non-dairy milk will work. I like to use unsweetened soy milk.
  • Vanilla Extract – to add a depth of flavor. 
  • Baking Powder – to help the biscuits rise. 
  • Cinnamon – for flavor
  • Frozen Blueberries – the secret to the best blueberry flavor and texture in muffins is using frozen blueberries. Frozen blueberries release their juices perfectly as opposed to fresh blueberries. They also retain more nutrients that fresh blueberries (most of the time!)
