Vegan Blueberry Oat Muffins (sugar free)
Blueberry Oat Muffins (sugar free)
A sugar-free muffin!
The inspiration for this recipe came from a zero refined sugar muffin recipe. However, that means naff all as it has 1/2 cup of sugar in it all the same (plus the blueberries on top). I thought that was quite a lot so I had a go with replacing all the sugar with mashed banana. They don’t look quite so pretty but they tasted alright!
The baker who’s recipe this originally came from gives a great tip about getting the muffins to rise nice and high - put the oven on super hot for the first 5 minutes. It worked a treat.

The original recipe isn’t vegan so I first had a go replacing the egg and honey and the muffins came out lovely but, as I mentioned, I thought there was a lot of sugar in them. Without the sugar the texture is a bit more bready.
The muffins on the left are the sugar-free version. On the right they are vegan but include 1/2 cup of sugar. I also made the sugary ones in muffin cases rather than cupcake moulds. They were very nice but that’s heap loads of sugar!
