With only a few key whole foods plant-based ingredients, these muffins are literally SO healthy!
The majority of store-bought muffins that you’d find at your local store or bakery are filled with refined flour, sugar, all kinds of toxic oils and chemical additives and artificial sweeteners.
Often times, a muffin may seem like the healthier option but when you’re not making it at home yourself, I’ll bet that muffin has the nutritional profile of a candy bar.
Can I use applesauce instead of banana in this recipe? YES! Substitute about 1/2 cup applesauce for the banana. It will provide the moisture you need. You can also use about 1/4 cup coconut oil if you don’t have either of those ingredients.
Is there another kind of flour I can use besides oat flour? I have only tried it with oat flour but if you decide to test the recipe out with other flours, let me know in the comments if you were successful.
Can I make oat flour from my oats? Yes, that is exactly what I did! I add 1.5 cups of oats into my Vitamix and made homemade oat flour – way cheaper than buying pre-made oat flour in the store!
Do the muffins store well as leftovers? 100%. Keep them in a sealed Ziploc or air-tight container to keep them moist. For freshness, you can microwave them for about 10 seconds before eating them.
If you need to bring muffins to a bake sale, pot luck or just need an easy snack for yourself or your kids…I’ve got you covered!
Moist vegan blueberry muffins will be your new favorite addition to your routine. I love how they’re packed with nutrients from the oats and blueberries.
Are you drooling yet?!
I added a ton of fresh blueberries into my muffins but feel free to get creative! You can make these into raspberry muffins, blackberry muffins or even make them into blueberry chocolate chip…the world is your muffin oyster (lol)!

I made these muffins in the evening and they are just yummmyyyy 😋😋😋😋. This is first recipe that worked perfectly for me 😊
AH! I am so happy you loved them Rati!
Just made these. They are delicious. I used both banana and applesauce and date sugar. Thanks for the recipe.
Thank you so much for your feedback Robin! I am so glad you enjoyed the muffins 🙂
Making again for the second time. So delicious and nutritious. The batter is really good too😋
was craving something sweet, but trying to stick to oil free. These SUPER hit the spot. Delicious. I will definitely make them again.
The batter seemed a little thin, so I was worried about that but by end of cook time they were perfect. Thanks for such a great recipe!
love them!!! and the best part is that i don’t feel guilty about eating them! thank you!
Looks lovely but would be nice to have some equivalent weights as well as cups for those if us not in the US
These are very simple and so delicious. I added 1/2 tsp of salt and some coriander. I took them to a dinner party & they were a big hit. I’m going to try a batch with peaches & one with cherries. So glad I found this recipe.
The recipe was easy and the muffins came out great.
Hello! Can you post the nutritional info for one muffin?
First- thanks for the time and effort in posting these recipes. SO appreciated! The first batch I made were delicious but a bit on the dense side. So for next batch I added 1 tsp baking soda – along with the baking powder. I also added one banana with 1/3 c applesauce and found the muffins to be a lot fluffier.
Also- if people are concerned with sugar monk fruit is a great sub.
Thanks for the recipe! I’ve been following The Starch Solution and eating a whole food plant based oil free diet for about 7 years and always on the lookout for recipes to try. Today is my shopping and batch cooking day for the workweek and this recipe was perfect for the items I had on hand. I added some lemon zest for tang, and some finely chopped spinach alongside the blueberries since I prefer a bit of green in all of my food. Used the banana and the applesauce and would sift the oat flour next time since the rise during the bake was okay, though my flour was a bit ‘cakey’. The muffins will be great for my afternoon tea. 🙂
Love these! My toddler loves muffins so I’m always looking for easy and healthier recipes. I’m happy I found another one of your recipes that I love.
