Vegan Blueberry Oatmeal Muffins

I recently got an opportunity to try out My Oatmeal, a great site that allows you to customize your very own healthy oatmeal. I was thrilled. I got to choose the flavors I adore and put it into one amazingly healthy and delicious oatmeal. I chose cocoa, dried strawberries, quinoa flakes, flax seeds and steel cut oats. I made the usual oatmeal for breakfast over the weekend and it was absolutely delicious. I opted for no sweetener when I made my custom creation but had to add Grade B maple syrup to give it a touch of sweetness. I may opt for an option without chocolate next time. I feel like the chocolate smelled and tasted artificial. Other than that I have no real complaints. I really enjoyed my oats!

I clearly made too much oatmeal and luckily found a way to make use of it in a very delicious and obviously nutritious way! I found a fab recipe for blueberry muffins but transformed it into a vegan version! Yippee. Well, here it is! I hope you enjoy!

What You Need
¼ cup vegan margarine
½ cup unsweetened applesauce
½ tsp. salt
1/2 cup Grade B Maple Syrup
2 cups all-purpose flour or sprouted grain flour or gluten free flour
1 Tbs. baking powder
½ cup almond milk
1 cup of pre-cooked steel cut oats
2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries

How You Make It
1. Preheat oven to 350F. Line 1/3-cup muffin cups with paper liners, or spray with cooking spray.
2.Mix all ingredients together in mixing bowl. Spoon into muffin cups, filling three-quarters full.
3. Bake 25 minutes, or until tops are firm. Cool slightly on rack.
4. Enjoy!

    Great article!
    The only thing I’d like to point out is that the reason your chocolate flavor tasted artificial is because you did not use sugar to sweeten it. Real chocolate contains LOADS of sugar. Though maple syrup is sweet it is not enough to bring out the real chocolate tones from the flavor. Next time, Try using a real sugar product, or a sweetener like Monk fruit which is plant based and calorie free. I am sure you will find that the artificial notes go away with the right amount of sweetness!

      Thank you Anthony. My only comment, maybe you can try raw cacao instead? I think it would be better tasting. I don’t really like adding sweetener to my foods too much so I would rather have something more natural. Thank you for your suggestion!
