We all need a go-to dairy-free muffin recipe, and this one is mine! This dairy-free blueberry muffin recipe uses whole wheat flour, no refined sugar, no oil, and plenty of blueberries. It's a great recipe to make with the kids, and you only need a bowl and spoon to whip the ingredients together. They bake beautifully with or without eggs, which gives you the option to easily make them vegan.
These are a part of my weekly meal prep, and my little guy loves bringing them to school for a snack or as part of his lunch. They're nut-free, which makes them an easy, school-friendly lunchbox staple. I usually make a double batch and freeze half for when I need something in a pinch.
I also love these muffins as an easy breakfast option for busy mornings. I usually have one with my favorite green smoothie, or alongside my baked spinach mushroom omelette. They're also a delicious addition to your holiday brunch table, or to have available for overnight guests.
