It’s so satisfying to make baked goods that taste even better than corner bakery favorites. And when they’re actually healthier for you – like these vegan blueberry muffins – it’s a big, happy win (and you know the recipe is a keeper)! Free of dairy, eggs and gluten, this recipe combines wholesome ingredients with a kick of protein from an added scoop of vanilla plant-based protein powder. Sunflower seed butter and a flax “egg” work like magic to create unbeatably moist muffins.

- 2 Tbsp. ground flaxseed meal
- 2 Tbsp. filtered water
- ½ cup Sproud Plant-Based Milk
- 1 tsp. apple cider vinegar

Gluten-Free Flour Mix
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line 12-cup muffin tray with paper or reusable liners.
In small bowl, mix together flax and water. Let sit 10 minutes to form gel.
In medium bowl, combine gluten-free flour mix ingredients.
In separate bowl, stir together milk, apple cider vinegar and baking soda.
In large bowl, mix together coconut oil, maple syrup, coconut sugar and SunButter. Add flax mixture and whisk, then stir in milk mixture. Lastly, add flour mix and salt and combine well.
