Recipe: Blueberry Oat Muffins

These Blueberry Oat Muffins are super moist and delicious. They are vegan, gluten-free, and refined sugar-free and only slightly sweetened with maple syrup. You can enjoy these muffins as is with blueberries, or we love experimenting with other berries. How amazing would frozen cherries be with our Oat Pantry Cherry Bakewell Porridge Oats!

  • ⅛ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ cup almond milk

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • ¾ cup fresh or frozen blueberries
  • ½ cup almonds, chopped or sliced
  • 1 ¼ cups oats -match this with the flavour of Oat Pantry porridge oats chosen for the oat flour.
