Single Serving Blueberry Muffin

Blueberry muffins!

vegan blueberry muffin

Have you ever seen the jumbo muffins they sell at places like Costco and Sam’s Club? Yesterday, out of the blue (pun intended), those muffins just popped into my mind. And suddenly… I wanted one!

I had some leftover blueberries from making Homemade Blueberry Ketchup.

So I quickly threw them into a single-lady cupcake mix and was eating my very own single-serving blueberry muffin only ten minutes later.

Single Serving Blueberry Muffin
4.42/512

Ingredients

  • 3 tbsp spelt flour (30g) (or ww pastry, white, or Bob’s gluten-free)
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • heaping 1/16 tsp salt
  • 1-2 tbsp blueberries (fresh or frozen)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp coconut or veg oil (You can use applesauce if you don't mind the taste of fat-free baked goods)
  • 1 tbsp plus 1 tsp milk of choice (Use less if using liquid sweetener)
  • pinch uncut stevia OR 1 tbsp sugar or liquid sweetener

Instructions

Preheat your oven to 330 degrees. (Or continue reading for microwave option.) Mix dry ingredients, then add wet. Mix until just combined (don’t overmix), and bake for 17 minutes or so. Baking time will vary, depending on the flour and oil/applesauce you use. If you don’t want to heat your oven for just one muffin, you can make this in the microwave! Just grease/spray a little dish, pour batter in, heat for 90-ish seconds, and enjoy!

After finishing my muffin,  I watched a CNN special on Bill Clinton, who credits his new vegan diet with saving his life. Did you know he’s a vegan?! Vegans used to be seen as weird and out of the ordinary. But thanks to famous vegans such as Ellen DeGeneres, Paul McCartney, and Alicia Silverstone, veganism is becoming a lot more mainstream now. Maybe someday, even Sam’s Club will sell vegan jumbo muffins!

    No 🙁 I dont really personally know any and its frustrating cuz I always feel a little out of place.
    But your muffin looks gorgeous and yummy and your blog makes me feel a little less out of place 🙂

    • Rosario says

      I understand what you mean by out of place. Especially at work/social functions. They just offer us salad! And it comes out that you are vegan/vegetarian and all the sudden you sound annoying. I really don’t offer the information. I feel like I belong when I peruse this website! Thanks.

  2. Lindsey @ Why Just Eat says

    Oh yum – we do this one all the time when making single lady cupcakes 🙂 I like to add a dash of cinnamon to mine. You really have to try them with our freeze dried blueberries sometime though – they are to die for!

    • Lindsey @ Why Just Eat says

      Oh – and I’ve found that I actually know more vegans/vegetarians than I thought. When people find out that I write a food blog, or when they ask about coming to a cooking class, that’s when they mention it.

    • Chocolate-Covered Katie says

      Freeze ried blueberries? That sounds awesome! I wonder if they’re cheaper than fd raspberries… I wanted to buy a package once, to put in my homemade larabars, but it was $9! I can guarantee you that with my lack of willpower, I will someday break down and buy that package anyway ;).

  3. katie @KatieDid says

    I know a couple, but they are loosely vegetarians. To each their own though! I used to be, but it didn’t work for me and my body. I still enjoy a good vegan dessert though 🙂

    • Chocolate-Covered Katie says

      That’s how I am with raw desserts! People go, “How come you eat raw desserts if you’re not a raw foodist?” Well, because there’s no rule that says you have to actually be on a certain diet to enjoy those desserts! 🙂

  4. Arusa says

    I’m a vegetarian myself. I have also have had 3 vegetarian friends. I also know some others who are either vegetarian or vegan.
    I’m hopefully going to try and make this blueberry muffin.

  5. Elizabeth says

    I know some vegetarians, many that are actually pescatarians and that don’t watch out for gelatin. But I don’t know any vegans personally. I have only heard of them from people that know one. That makes me feel lonely sometimes, and when I see other vegans at Whole Foods I get really happy because it reminds me I’m not alone. If it wasn’t for you, Katie, other bloggers and these celebs I would find it much harder to be vegan.

    • Chocolate-Covered Katie says

      I think I didn’t meet another vegan until I’d already been one three years… and then the first other vegans I met were goats! True story! I was at a bed-n-breakfast, and they told me that the lady who fed the goats was a vegan. I never got to meet her, though. Only the goats ;).

  6. Sarena (The Non Dairy Queen) says

    Dang that muffin looks good! I love huge muffin tops! This looks perfect. I’m the only vegetarian I know personally. Our family eats mostly vegetarian, but the boys do eat meat occasionally. Lately, they have been missing the more vegetarian lifestyle. They have decided to move more in that directions. I did ready about Bill Clinton and I do agree that if you eat a healthy vegan diet, it can be extremely beneficial. Although, you can go in the wrong direction and over do any diet.

  7. Lauren B. says

    I know a few vegetarians, and one raw foodist, but don’t personally know any vegans. I certainly think it is becoming more common though, judging from the amount of veg cookbooks I see in Barnes and Noble and veg restaurants now. I don’t know if I will ever be strictly veg or vegan, but I have been incorporating many more veg meals into my diet now. And as a result, am strangely losing my taste for meat! Hmmmm.

  8. Kelly says

    This looks exactly like my favorite vegan muffin, the blueberry muffin at Le Pain Quotidien. My muffins never turn out with that perfect top…any advice? I know not to overmix, but do you have batter scooping tips, do you use an ice cream scoop? Did you use a regular muffin tin?

  9. ellen says

    hey katie, m gonna make this rite now! looks great…just wndering though, looked at the nutritional value, and when i add it up it equated to way more than 110 cals…just made me wonder ive got the measurements rite?
    3 tbsp flour (i make this 40grams?) and 1 tbsp coconut (…about 15 gram?)….or is this too much lol…any help would be great….xx

  10. Emily says

    I’m a pescetarian! Does that count? 😛 Haha, I do know many vegetarians though. I originally wanted to go full veg, but this is my compromise with my parents. (I, like you, am technically underweight, and they’re already worried enough about me… sigh.)

  11. [email protected] says

    i love single serving recipes, because I typically am cooking for just myself and it’s always a hassle to have to try and scale down recipes, so thank you!!

    I’m a vegetarian, so now we all know another!!

  12. Katie @ Peace Love and Oats says

    What a great recipe! I really love all your single serving recipes. My biggest problem living alone is that I never want to make a batch of anything because then I’m left with the whole thing! I have some fresh blueberries from the farmers market yesterday, so I’ll have to try this out!

  13. Lauren says

    Yum. I need to make this asap!

    I know a handful of vegetarians, but no vegans. Meat-eating is pretty big here in Wisconsin (have you heard of our famous bratwursts?…Yuck!), so I don’t think vegetarians/vegans are as prevalent as they may be in other parts of the country.

  14. Aja says

    I wish I had blueberries right now. I love all your single-serving recipes.
    Well I’ve been a vegetarian for the majority of my life and just decided to become a vegan. I’m loving it. I have two friends that are vegetarians which is nice so I’m not alone and I think my boyfriend is seriously considering giving up his meat…

  15. Jenny says

    Love your single serving (a.k.a. “single lady”) recipes! They make for such great snacks when you’re feeling indecisive, but want something delicious (and healthy, of course) A.S.A.P. 🙂

    I know quite a few vegetarians, but only three vegans. Two of those three… don’t know what they’re doing, to be honest. They haven’t done the research about becoming vegan (or even vegetarian) so they’re both experiencing a plethora of health problems at the moment. (The worst part is that they don’t want to listen to advice, either! And yes, I have tried to direct them to your blog! “I know what I’m doing” is what they always retort in response…)

    Thanks for another blueberry recipe. 😀 I hope blueberry season doesn’t come to an end soon… or, you know, ever.

  16. Laura says

    This muffin looks awesome! I made a similar one the other day using a recipe from Happy Herbivore. I think hers is very close to yours.
    Anyway, there are quite a few vegans and vegetarians on my college campus and we have a vegetarian society that has helped me meet lots of people. I am actually going to be living in a house of three vegans (including me), three vegetarians, and two omnivores. Should be interesting!
    You’re totally right about veganism becoming more mainstream. I live in Philly and I am constantly amazed by the number of vegan or vegan-friendly restaurants popping up.

    • Chocolate-Covered Katie says

      Oh you’re so super-lucky! Philly is my favorite city! I love South Street especially! An there’s some veg restaurant… I can’t remember the name, but they have an incredible peanut sauce curry. (Of course, my favorite restaurant on Cherry Street closed. :()

  17. Michaela says

    yum yum! Love blueberry muffins!
    I know some vegan/vegetarian people, but not that many (about 8 altogether). I guess that will change when I start at Peta 😉

  18. Amber K says

    I’m the resident vegetarian of my group of friends. And I also have to be gluten-free and can only handle certain kinds of dairy and limited amount of soy. Growing up I was a vegetarian in a very meat-heavy family. And my parents would get really angry with me for not wanting to eat meat. They might have been more ok with it if I had reasons beyond “but it’s DISGUSTING!!!” Then again, probably not. But thankfully my husband is totally okay with the fact that he eats waaay less meat now that he’s with me.

  19. Ashley says

    My boyfriend’s a vegetarian! He was raised that way, so he’s never known anything different. I love it– it encourages me to go out and make creative and fun dishes for us to try together! I still haven’t gotten around to tofu yet, haha. I knew a vegan once, in college. She about died when she found out Oreos were “vegan”. That’s my best memory of her. And of course, you Katie!

    Fabulous looking blueberry muffin! This is my sister’s fave– and she’s starting her first day of college tomorrow! Maybe I’ll make this for her!

  20. Megan says

    This looks so delicious Katie! I love muffins with plump blueberries and it looks so moist and fresh! I always loved those giant blueberry muffins with streusel on top as a kid, so I bet you could do a healthy one with a touch of brown sugar and some nuts. Also, I am making your raw chocolate fudge cake today! As for knowing veg people, I had a co-worker who was vegan, another who was vegetarian, and I have been a vegetarian for a whopping 3 months! (you gotta start somewhere) I have considered going vegan but I just love greek yogurt, cottage cheese, and goat cheese!
