Vegan Lemon Blueberry Muffins

Vegan Blueberry Muffins

As a vegan I find breakfast to be the hardest meal of the day. In my non-vegan days I ate eggs practically every morning so I have been really struggling to find options that satisfy. After spending a weekend away and not being able to find any real breakfast options aside from fruit, it got me inspired to try my hand at making some vegan muffins.

I decided to make lemon blueberry muffins as they are a favourite of mine. Not only are these muffins great for breakfasts at home but they travel well and are perfect to pack along on a vacation or to grab on the go! Since getting Nova our mornings are a lot more rushed than they used to be so having something convenient to eat on the go has been a real lifesaver for me! Not only are these muffins super convenient, but they are very moist and have a lot of flavour too!

Here is my recipe:
