The Healthy Vegan Gluten Free Ingredients You Need
Today’s healthy blueberry muffin recipe is made with healthy vegan gluten free ingredients. Check it out below:
Gluten Free Oat Flour
Gluten free oat flour is one of my healthy vegan gluten free baking pantry staples. I opt for using oat flour because it’s fiber-rich, made with just one ingredient: oats, and boasts incredible nutrients.
In just ½ cup of oats, you can expect 191% of your RDI (recommended daily intake) of manganese, 39% of your RDI of Vitamin b1, 10% of your RDI of Vitamin b5, and over 20% RDI of zinc, iron, copper, phosphorous and magnesium.
Non-dairy milk keeps this recipe vegan. One of my very favorites to use is unsweetened vanilla almond milk. It has a delicious, yet mellow flavor and melds so well in these vegan gluten free blueberry muffins. Bonus: almond milk is very low in calories and sugar, while being high in Vitamin E and calcium.
Coconut Oil & Coconut Sugar
Instead of using canola oil, vegetable oil or highly processed vegan butter in this healthy blueberry muffin recipe, I opted to use coconut oil and coconut sugar. Coconut oil and coconut sugar are less processed ingredients that keep this recipe vegan and gluten free.
With a whopping one and half cups of fresh blueberries, this healthy blueberry muffins recipe is packed with antioxidants! Blueberries are one of my favorite vegan, gluten free superfoods because they’re nutrient-rich and antioxidant-rich.
In just 1 cup of blueberries, you can expect 24% RDI of Vitamin C, 4 grams of fiber, 36% RDI of Vitamin K and 25% RDI of manganese. Bonus: it’s relatively low in carbs, with just 15 grams of carbs per cup.

A says, “I thought these muffins were going to be good before i even tried them but i was wrong. They are not good. They are the best blueberry muffins i’ve ever had. Everything about this recipe is perfect, even the amount of blueberries. I will continue to make this recipe. Thank you beamingbaker!”
Olivia says, “Hallelujah and Amen!! At last some healthy baking that my nine year old daughter will eat!! She has been refusing to eat her healthy lunches and comes back home from school with nearly all her food – the exception being what she manages to trade for a slice or a chocolate muffin made by one of her friends’ mums. But when I gave her one of these muffins not only did she not spit it out – but she kept on eating. And not only did she eat it all – but SHE ASKED FOR ANOTHER ONE!!! Demeter, you have rescued me!!! I was on the verge of caving and just giving her the unhealthy food she desired. But now I know you really can make healthy food taste good, I can’t wait to try your other recipes. Thank you so much!!!”
Isalee says, “I love this recipe! These muffins are divine. I ate so many of them! Perfectly easy recipe, and awesome results. The more blueberries, the better… I always love Beaming Baker’s recipes (you can’t go wrong!)”

Healthy Vegan Gluten Free Blueberry Muffins: my favorite vegan gluten free blueberry muffins are easy ‘n moist! The best healthy blueberry muffin recipe—made with oat flour and healthy ingredients!
- 2 cups gluten free oat flour – if using homemade oat flour, make sure it’s very finely ground (not coarse)*
- ¾ teaspoon baking soda
- ½ teaspoon baking powder
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- ½ cup + 2 tablespoons non-dairy milk
- 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
- 3 tablespoons melted coconut oil
- ¼ cup coconut sugar
- ¼ cup pure maple syrup
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 1 ½ cups fresh blueberries
- 2–3 tablespoons fresh blueberries
- Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a 12-cup muffin pan with muffin liners. Set aside.
- In a large bowl, sift together all the dry ingredients: oat flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
- Add milk to a microwave-safe bowl. Heat in 10-second increments until just warm. This will prevent the melted coconut oil from solidifying once mixed with the milk.
- In a medium bowl, whisk together all wet ingredients: milk, lemon juice, oil, sugar, maple syrup and vanilla. Whisk until well incorporated.
- Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients. Whisk until just incorporated, making sure no flour patches remain. Fold in blueberries.
- Pour batter evenly into prepared muffin pan—filling each cup all the way to the top for a smaller quantity of big, round-topped muffins, and ¾ of the way for a larger quantity of smaller muffins. Optionally, press blueberries into the muffin tops. Bake for 22-30 minutes. Mine took 26 minutes for big, high-top muffins. Insert a toothpick to check for doneness—once it comes out clean, it’s done.
- Place muffin pan on a cooling rack to cool for 20 minutes. Remove muffins from muffin pan and transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely, about 1-2 hours. Enjoy! Storing instructions below.

Hi, I made this before and they were abslutoely delicous!
But… I was wondering is there some why to not use coco nut syrup?
Hi Kaja! So glad you enjoyed the muffins. I assume you mean coconut syrup instead of maple syrup? Here, the pure maple syrup is different from the kind you typically pour on pancakes, so if you’re looking for a substitute you could try honey or brown rice syrup. Hope this helps!
Oh yes, I meant maple syrup, I’m actually trying to avoid any kinds of syrups, do I’m not sure but do you think that you could try to do it wih only coconut sugar?
No Syrups of any kind?
Hi there! Is it possible to swap the oat flour for coconut flour? Also for non-dairy milk ,does that included canned coconut milk? thanks!!!
Hi! Unfortunately, xoxo or flour won’t work as a swap for oat flour because it’s significantly more absorbent and will lead to very dry, crumbly muffins. And as for the milk, canned coconut milk is too high in fat to work as a sub, but coconut milk from a carton (like you’d put on cereal) should work fine. Hope this helps!
Is there supposed to be any binding agent in this recipe, like flax or chia? Made these muffins today and they were delicious. However, a bit on the crumbly side when trying to cut them
Hi B. No flax eggs necessary in this recipe. Did you make any changes to the recipe? Also, if you used homemade oat flour, did you sift it before using? If you don’t site it, you’ll be left with larger bits of oat that will affect the final baked texture.
