Ingredients
 

Wet:

  • 1/2 cup granulated cane sugar or light brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup apple sauce
  • 1/4 cup oil (I used avocado oil)
  • 1/3 cup non-dairy milk
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 flax egg (1 tbsp ground flax seeds + 2.5 tbsp water (can sub for a regular egg if not vegan))

Dry:

  • 1 3/4 cup quick oats
  • 1 1/4 cup + 2 tbsp (gluten free all purpose flour*)
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 ½ cups fresh or frozen blueberries

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. 
  • Whisk together the 1 tbsp ground flax seeds plus 2.5 tbsp of water in a small bowl and set aside. If you are not vegan, just sub for a real egg, this recipe works really well either way!
  • In a large bowl, whisk together all wet ingredients including the flax egg once thickened. 
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together all dry ingredients aside from the blueberries. 
  • Combine the wet with the dry and mix together with a wooden spoon until a batter forms. It should be on the thicker side. 
  • Fold in the blueberries and mix until evenly incorporated. 
  • Use a medium cookie scoop, spoon, or 2 tbsp and add the batter to a lined muffin tray. You want to fill them up nearly all the way. I fill them about 3/4 of the way and then use any extra batter in ones that aren't as full. 
  • Top with additional blueberries and a sprinkle of sugar if desired. 
  • Bake at 425 for 2 minutes, lower the oven to 350 degrees and bake for an additional 18-22 minutes. The higher initial temperature will help the muffins rise properly without drying them out. The tops should be slightly golden brown and a toothpick should come out clean when they are done. It's ok if there are a few crumbs on the toothpick, as long as it's not really wet. 
  • Remove from the oven and let cool as is for about 10 minutes, then remove from the muffin tray to finish cooling. 

Notes

You can use quick cooking or regular rolled oats for this recipe, but I prefer the texture with quick oats. Rolled oats will give a more grainy texture whereas quick oats will be soft. 
I used the Bob's Red Mill GF 1:1 Baking Flour for this recipe, but you can sub for regular all purpose if you are not gluten free.
Once prepared, these muffins will store for 3-5 days. They do best on a plate with foil on top because they can get a bit soggy in an air tight container due to the apple sauce/fresh ingredients.
