Making Blackberry Lavender Muffins
Below is a step by step photo gallery so you can see how simple the process is to make these vegan blackberry muffins!
Start by mixing your soy milk, melted coconut milk, sugar and lavender together in a small bowl. If you use coconut oil you will want to heat up your milk a bit otherwise the oil will clump up. If you are using standard vegetable oil or a sunflower oil, you won’t need to worry about heating up the milk. I personally prefer the flavor and health benefits of coconut oil over vegetable oil, but it does mean you’ll need to heat up your milk for the recipe.
Since this recipe is egg free, the best plant based milk to use is a high protein soy milk or a pea milk. These types of milks are higher in protein, which helps create structure for the muffins to rise. This recipe will work with oat, almond, or any plant milk- however your results will be slightly denser and less fluffy.
In a large bowl sift your all purpose flour with the rest of the dry ingredients, pour in your wet mix, and gently fold it all together. Which at this point you’ll add some chopped up blackberries and dried lavender. The dried lavender is totally optional for this recipe but it does add a delightful light floral taste. The two teaspoons of it is subtle and pairs nicely with the tart and sweet blackberries.
