Notes

Alternatives

Blueberry muffins always taste delicious. But if you prefer, switch the fruit for your favorite. Some suggestions include:
  • raspberries
  • cranberries
  • chopped cherries
  • pineapple
  • peaches
 
We use oat milk in many of our recipes. I like the creamy texture it provides. But other plant-based milk substitutes well. You might try:
  • soy milk
  • cashew milk
  • or even a creamy vegan yogurt
