Vegan Blueberry Yoghurt Muffins

In Baking, Recipes, Sweet by Muriel1 Comment

I’ve been getting into a rhythm of making my own homemade soy yoghurt every other week or so, which my flatmate and I have been absolutely loving. And then the other day I remembered that as a child, I used to help my mom bake muffins with buttermilk or yoghurt (dairy of course, since I barely knew what vegan meant then). So, since I had a full two litres of soy yoghurt on hand, I figured I’d try my hand at some blueberry yoghurt muffins. These are a bit indulgent, with both sugar and oil, so maybe keep these as a weekend treat! I made a batch and froze most of them to limit the temptation!

If you don’t have soy yoghurt on hand, I’m pretty sure you could just substitute it with a vegan “buttermilk” – just take one cup of plant milk (soy works well), add a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar, and wait a few minutes for it to curdle. Or, make your own homemade soy yoghurt!

I used a mixture of aquafaba (the water from a can of chickpeas) and ground flaxseed for the “egg” in the recipe. I like to use more than one type of egg replacer in a recipe: since each kind of egg replacer has slightly different strengths (between binding, leavening and adding moisture), it means that the combination is more likely to give a good result.
