Units Scale

Dry Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 cups whole wheat pastry flour (see notes)
  • 3/4 cup quick oats
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt

Wet Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1/3 cup light olive oil (or avocado, melted/cooled coconut oil)
  • 1/4 cup non-dairy milk (such as cashew, oat, soy, etc.)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup blueberries


  1. Preheat oven to 425ºF and line 9 muffin cups with liners; set aside.
  2. Mix dry ingredients: In medium bowl, mix together dry ingredients and set aside.
  3. Mix wet ingredients: In large bowl, whisk together wet ingredients (except blueberries) until combined.
  4. Combine: Add about half of the dry ingredients to bowl of wet, stir a couple of times, then gently fold in blueberries and remaining dry ingredients. 
  5. Bake: Evenly distribute muffin batter into the 9 lined muffin cups, filling almost to the top. Bake for 5 minutes at 425ºF, then drop to 350ºF and bake another 12-18-ish minutes. Check muffins at 15 minutes with inserted toothpick for wet batter.
  6. Cool: Allow muffins to cool in pan for 5 minutes before removing and placing on wire rack to cool completely.



FLOUR – If using oat flour, use 1 cup and omit milk. The muffins won’t rise as much and they’ll look a little different than what’s pictured, but they’ll still taste great! 

SWEETENER – Honey may also be used but muffins will brown a bit more. I do not recommend subbing a dry sweetener as it will affect liquid ratios

TO MAKE VEGAN – Replacing the two large eggs with 2 TBSP flaxseed meal + 1/3 cup of water is a good egg-free substitute.
