    Celebrate blueberry season by making these outrageously good vegan blueberry muffins!

    The muffins are delicious on their own but what takes them to the next level is the crunchy and caramelized walnut crumble topping—don’t skip it!

    The blog post has full written instructions, tips for making these recipes, and ingredient substitutions (including gluten-free suggestions!), so be sure to check it out!

    Vegan Blueberry Muffins

    These bakery-style vegan blueberry muffins are fluffy, tender, and full of fresh blueberry flavor. And a crunchy and caramelized bountiful muffin top separates them from your standard blueberry muffin. Easy to make gluten-free.

    Like the name suggests, you can use this pan all day long. I use mine to sauté vegetables, deep fry cauliflower for Gobi Manchurian, and even make soups or vegan tagine.

    It’s a well made and gorgeous piece of cookware you’ll be delighted to have on your countertop or stove!

      This is by for one of the best vegan muffins I’ve ever made. The process involves multiple steps and it can be a messy one but one that is certainly worth it. These muffins were a big hit. They were gone by the time I wanted to put some away to freeze!

      1. Kaitlin @ Rainbow Plant Life

        We’re over the moon to hear the recipes were well-loved, Christina. Thanks for your kind words!

    2. Terri Narehood

      These blueberry muffins were so delicious! I shared them with my coworkers who absolutely loved them!

      Best blueberry muffins I’ve ever had! The crumble is delicious and really adds to the overall flavor and texture.

      1. Kaitlin @ Rainbow Plant Life

        Your positive feedback is the best reward for our hard work. Thank you, Heidi!

    4. Tina Salmon

      I’m generally not a baker, however these muffin were a hit. The only thing I would do different next time I make them is I’d double the topping mix.
      Thanks for another great and easy recipe.

      1. Kaitlin @ Rainbow Plant Life

        Thank you for your lovely comment, Tina! It makes us happy to know that you enjoyed the recipe.

    5. Heather Elder

      Made these and my whole family loved them! Super tasty!

      1. Kaitlin @ Rainbow Plant Life

        Yay! Thanks for the review, Heather. We’re happy to hear it :)

      5 Stars – MUST Make – Family Approved!

      These will become a staple in my home.
      The morning I made them, my child and I sat out on the porch as it rained and ate warm blueberry muffins in the damp air… it was magical. This morning – 2 days later, they are still moist and wonderful – so I warmed vegan butter and maple syrup in a skillet and grilled myself two – because they were that good.

      I cannot wait for this weekend when I switch out the blueberries for cherries and the walnuts for almonds to meet the request.

      This will become my go-to!
      Thank you

      1. Kaitlin @ Rainbow Plant Life

        Thanks for taking the time to make the muffins and for leaving a review, Donna! :)

      These are seriously some of the tastiest muffins I’ve had. You’ll never miss dairy and eggs in this recipe!

      1. Kaitlin @ Rainbow Plant Life

        Hi Troy, we’re so happy you enjoyed the muffins! Thanks for leaving a review :)
