Do you know the muffin man?

I’ve talked a lot about vegan baking on this blog and explored egg replacers, flax eggs and aquafaba but the easiest egg alternative is banana. I always have bananas in my fruit bowl and so when I see a vegan cake recipe that doesn’t use banana in the place of egg I get a little disappointed. Sure, if you’re baking for a special occasion you probably won’t to opt for one of the “fancier” swaps but bananas are perfect when you just want a sweet treat at short notice. These vegan blueberry muffins are the perfect example of a sweet treat that you can whip up at short notice without lots of fancy ingredients.

I use frozen blueberries because fresh are so expensive in the UK and our blueberry bush only bears fruit for a few days before the pigeons eat them all! If you’re lucky enough to have a good, cheap supply of blueberries then feel free to use fresh. It won’t make that much difference to the final recipe though you may need to reduce the bake time by 5 minutes so keep an eye on them at the end! You won’t get a huge rise out of these muffins but they will be moist and crumbly with bursts of sweet blueberry. The demerara sugar sprinkled on top gives a fantastic crunch which is a nice contrast too!
