If you’re on a health-kick for the new year, you might be interested in some healthy grab-and-go breakfast or snack ideas, and these Gluten-Free Vegan Blueberry Muffins might just be the answer!
They’re really easy to make, requiring just one bowl and familiar ingredients. The recipe is also versatile, as you can use any type of milk, any type of oil and any type of liquid sweetener you like.
And most importantly, they taste great too! They’re moist and fluffy, not-too-sweet and bursting with blueberry goodness! If you’re not into blueberries, these could be swapped for any other similar fruit such as blackberries, raspberries or cherries.
And if you are into blueberries, you might like my:

Though these muffins do obviously taste best when fresh, they keep well covered in the fridge for up to a few days, and freeze well too, which makes them great for a quick breakfast. If you have just taken them out of the fridge of freezer, I’d recommend warming them up in an oven toaster if you have one.
As they’re made using ground almonds, this means they’ve got a little protein in them too, which means they’re quite filling as well.
