1 Bowl Lemon Blueberry Muffins – Vegan + Gluten Free

 

These blueberry muffins are deliciously light and soft, full of blueberry and lemon flavour, and can be made in 1 bowl, in under 10 minutes. 

I used a homemade gluten free flour mixture (just ground up some oats, buckwheat and quinoa), but these also work with all purpose flour, and probably with whole wheat or a gluten free mix as well. For sweetener, I went for coconut sugar. I tried it before with maple syrup, but the result was a little to dense for a muffin.  Lemon zest adds tang and extra flavour. The texture and flavour are amazing!

      

Enjoy one of these muffins for breakfast, or as  a morning or afternoon snack. Let me know if you try them, by tagging them #peacemealxo on instagram.
