Ingredients

Dry Ingredients
 4 cups Flour
 1 tsp Salt
 2 tsp Cinnamon
 2 tbsp Baking Powder
 ½ tsp Baking Soda
 ½ cup Coconut Sugar*
 ¼ cup Brown Sugar
 ¼ cup Turbinado Sugar (for topping)
Wet Ingredients
 2 cups Almond Milk
 2 tsp Apple Cider Vinegar
 ½ cup Unsweetened Applesauce
 ¼ cup Oil (I used Grapeseed)
 2 tsp Vanilla Extract
 Zest of 2 Lemons
 2 ½ cups Blueberries (I used frozen)

Directions

1

Preheat oven to 360 and grease a muffin tin. This recipe makes enough for 6 jumbo muffins or 12 standard muffins (filling tin to very top).

2

Combine almond milk and apple cider vinegar in a small bowl and set aside to let curdle.

3

In a large bowl, combine flour, salt, cinnamon, baking powder, and baking soda.

4

In a separate bowl combine applesauce, sugar, oil, vanilla, and lemon zest.

5

Add milk to apple sauce mixture.

6

Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients and combine with a spatula. Try not to over mix the batter.

7

Add blueberries into batter once everything is combined. Again, don’t mix too much!

8

Pour batter into muffin tins. I like to fill them to the top for big, domed muffins.**

9

Add a few extra blueberries to each muffin top and press in gently. Sprinkle muffin tops with turbinado sugar.

10

Bake at 350 for 26 minutes, or until a toothpick poked into the center of the muffins comes out mostly clean.***

Notes

*The dark sugars make the muffin base turn a nice golden colour. You can use white sugar but the muffins won’t be as rich in colour.

**You can fill the tins ¾ full for smaller muffins but there might be batter leftover.

***If using frozen blueberries, muffins might take longer to cook since the blueberries cool the batter.
