If you know me, I always whip up a muffin concept to feature on Saturday! For the longest time I found any vegan muffin recipe to be underwhelming. The texture was of or either they didn’t cook through and the list goes on. Once I found the best balance I created tons!
When it comes to muffins I love to create fruit forward options! Believe it or not, I feel that blackberries always get skipped over! They have a tart like flavor, which pairs perfectly with lemon, and here’s just one more reason to love them..
They make a fab muffin!
What’s fab about this recipe, is everything! It’s my staple vegan muffin recipe, quick, easy, packs tons of flavor, lots of berries, buttery soft, features a quick lemon icing if you’re craving more of that lemon flavor, perf for any season, great for brunch entertaining, and is a lemon lovers dream!
If you love a good vegan muffin, you’re going to fall head over heels for these vegan Lemon Blackberry Muffins!!
Heat oven to 350 degrees F. For big-topped muffins, line 8 standard-size muffin cups with paper liners. For standard-size muffins line 10 muffin cups. (optional) Fill the remaining cups with 1 to 2 tablespoons of water to help the muffins bake evenly.
Whisk the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a large bowl.
Add melted coconut oil, mashed banana, room temp almond milk, vanilla extract, lemon extract (optional), lemon zest, and lemon juice to a bowl and whisk until smooth. If the mixture is too cold and coconut oil begins to solidify, simply pop in the microwave for a few seconds.
Add wet to dry ingredient lightly combine. Do not over mix. (The muffin batter will be quite thick) Fold in the fresh blackberries saving a few to throw on top, and fill into the muffin cups.
Bake for 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick is inserted in the middle and comes out clean. If the tops begin to dry out simply make a tent with aluminum foil to prevent them from further drying out.
