Milk and Egg Free Blueberry Muffins Recipe

 

My family adores a simple muffin for breakfast, at dinner, for a snack…

and even on the road.

For any reason, really.

And to me,

the best recipes use basic ingredients from your pantry.

This blueberry muffin does just that.

Long ago, we figured out how to make basic blueberry muffins…

milk-free and egg-free for our food allergy family. 

There are three options for egg in this recipe. 

Use egg if you can. 

But since there’s only one egg in the recipe, 

it can easily be replaced with flax egg.

Or simply replace the one egg with applesauce!

Easy peasy.

This recipe also does call for milk, 

so just replace that with your favorite dairy-free milk. 

We use almond or coconut. 

But flax, hemp, oat, soy would work, too.

And don’t forget the crunchy sugar on top!

That’s the secret to making muffins that taste like they came from a bakery. 

Something many of our food allergy kiddos haven’t experienced. 

So mama, don’t forget the crunchy sugar on top! (affiliate)

I keep it stocked for muffins.

The Best Muffin Pan

If you are a family with food allergies, 

you may find yourself baking safe goodies on the regular, like me. 

That’s why I’ve invested in the very best baking pans at our house. 

And I’m still happily adding to my collection!

USA pans on Amazon are my absolute favorite. 

I even buy them at Christmas for friends and family. 

What makes USA pans so awesome?

They made with durable aluminum.

They are not made with teflon. 

They are coated in food-grade, non-stick silicone. 

Everything I make in these pans pops right out!

With all the baking I do, these pans eliminate the need for disposable muffin liners. 

They wash up like a dream, with no effort at all. 

They are made in the USA! 

I especially love the muffin, mini muffin, and donut pans. 

Here’s the Amazon link to USA Pans we love. (affiliate)

Do I Use Fresh or Frozen Blueberries in Muffins

Honestly, I use either one. 

Both fresh and frozen blueberries work great in this recipe!

I mostly use frozen because they are more affordable that way, 

and we always have frozen blueberries on hand. 

Walmart has bulk, organic frozen blueberries on Walmart grocery pick-up

Holla!

Do I Need to Smooth Muffin Batter

No, muffin batter does not have to be smoothed flat before baking. 

Just spoon the batter into the muffin wells. 

And bake them as is. 

Muffins actually come out better when left with their rugged shape. 

It’s what we see at coffee shops, right? 🙂

HOW TO MAKE BLUEBERRY MUFFINS FROM SCRATCH

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Grease a muffin pan if needed. Or line a muffin pan with paper cups.

Or use our favorite non-stick silicone coated muffin pan (affiliate).

If using flax egg replacement, mix ground flax and water.

Let sit for 5 minutes until mixture reaches egg-like consistency.

Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl.

Make a well in the center of the dry mixture.

In a large bowl or large measuring cup, combine egg or egg replacement, dairy-free milk, and oil.

Pour wet mixture into the well of the dry mixture.

Gently fold in the blueberries.

Spoon batter into muffin pan wells.

Sorry anonymous, I added those missing points! I think it was about 1 cup of diced berries and they get folded into the batter last, before baking.
